Saab Gripen Lunch sketch

Need to work on my proportions I think. Too easy to over-emphasize the features...
The good news is, this is my third go at this jet, so most of those features are committed to "the library" now. 



4th attempt. 12/11/13

Heavy Lift sketch



Heavy Lift vehicle for mechanized units. Engine nacelles rotate, allowing this vehicle to hover so it can drop tanks or other mechs along with a complement of dismounted troops.

Rebel Chopper personal project

So, not too long ago...I had this idea of a low slung, ugly, oily chopper in mind. It hasn't left my brain like most everything else, so I figured I'd try to work it out. The fiction is....this bike was home built by a badass who either doesn't care, or doesn't know how to build a safe, pleasant to ride machine. Eventually, I want it to look like it was built out of hand crafted bits and found parts...but I'm still working the final look out. It's a process!

20130823 - decided to draw it from scratch and slightly re-imagine it.












20130726 - got the rear wheel assembly and seat put together










20130725 - sketches and ideas for the rear end of the rebel chopper. I've been messing with Google Sketchup a bit...and from the look of things....this may become part of my pipeline.











Initial first pass type sketches. General proportions and design

Happy Birthday Alyessa!

I've been creating little animated birthday e-cards for my wife the month of her birthday. I do these during my lunch breaks, so it's less than an hour's worth of work. Check back often, I plan to have a new one every day until her Birthday (the 17th).

Sketchery

Sketched this out at work today while my tools issues were being fixed. I watched a Scott Robertson tutorial the other day, so some pretty much all of his design snuck in.

Harrier Front Landing Gear study

in an effort to more fully understand mechanical joints and rigging, I've been studying landing gear. This is from the front of an AV8B Harrier, and was drawn on my EP121. Enjoy!

Landing Gear

Wanted to challenge myself with something rather technical and complex shapes.
