A series of props and vehicle designed for the mechanic in the year 2040. I envision that all his tools including the suit and vehicles would be powered by high-pressured gas, without the need of an air compressor; reminisce of the pneumatic tools of modern day mechanics.
Early design project. The idea was to create a Modular Induction PC.
Various components of the PC can be placed onto an induction plate eliminating the hassle of wires. These components, including software, can be purchase as modular blocks with easily recognizable indication of S,M,L,XL either representing speed or storage size.
The screen also functions as a less powerful laptop for mobility.
The backgrounds are pictures, the floating cubes and spheres are painted.
The reflections within the chrome sphere had to be plotted. Taking a picture of a small chrome ball just wouldn't cut it; the size of the reflected objects would've been different on a small chrome ball compared to a 1 meter diameter chrome sphere.
More foundation work. "Plot animals in basic shapes", that was the instruction. Due to the faceted results, I've decided to draw them into mechanical robots.
It'll be cool if they can be made into a series of die cast toys :)
Foundation works, basic form studies. The task was to draw basic forms accurately, I just thought making them into vehicles and spaceships would be more interesting.
Reminds me of those early days 3D computer models.
