Hot Rod Sedan

Digital illustration created using a free 3D model from 3DWarehouse.com, Sketchup, Photoshop, Corel Painter and ArtRage. Going for a comic book, sketchy type of style…

Gunship 3D model

A heavy artillery spaceship. I designed the spaceship and modeled in various 3D modeling apps (Groboto3D, Hexaton3D, Wings3D, Silo3D and textured in 3DCoat.
With processing in Adobe Photoshop 2017 and Corel Painter 2017 to give the image a comic book type of illustration.

Old 35mm Photos

I recently purchased an Epson V370 Photo scanner that is capable of scanning 35mm negatives and slides. I’m quite pleased with the results.

Here are a few I’ve converted so far…

The Scolding

p2158740947-5

Another one of my 3D / 2D digital illustrations….I did this over Christmas, completing in the New Year…

I titled it “The Scolding” or when a Dog’s Gotta Go, It’s Gotta Go!!!

In the tenement living area of a large urban city some where in North America of the 1950s,
a youth is scolding his dog for urinating on a fire hydrant. His female companion looks on in disbelief,
and a local cat hisses displeasure at the incident.

Experiment with Black & White

I initially took this photo a few weeks ago while vacationing in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The photo is of the “Boardwalk in Inverness”. I liked the general composition but thought is lacked something… So I converted it to b&w.

Original photo shot as RAW with my Nikon D7100/18-105mm Nikkor lens, processed in Lightroom CC 2015 & Photoshop CC 2015.5

Crossing Guard’s Lunch Break

I usually do not take candid photos of people in public but sometimes the subject matter is just too good to pass up. This was one of those occasions. During one of my lunch hour walks at work, I came across a crossing guard taking his lunch break in the Hydrostone neighborhood of Halifax, June 2015.

Camera: Sony DSC-HX300

Airship Over Future City

A steam powered airship flies over a distant, future city in dystopian world. I modeled the airship in Hexagon3D & Groboto. The buildings are the dystopian city blocks from Cornucopia3D. Scene was rendered in Vue Complete 2015 using the NPR settings. With details and adjustments made in Photoshop CC 2015 & ArtRage 4.5.27047993866_564dbf9fe4_b

Hot Rod Sedan

This is my interpretation of a typical American hot rod. Hot rods originated in southern California when returning WWII soldiers wanted to create an American equivalent of the light and nimble sports cars of Europe (MGs, Alfa Romeos, etc). Suped up engines mostly V8s were swapped in place of the original motors. To help improve performance body parts were often removed. Fenders, bumpers, hoods, running boards were often shed to increase the horsepower to weight ratio of the vehicle.

In this image I used a late 1920s, early 1930s sedan body as the basis for the car. Powered by a early model Ford flathead V8 which
is supercharged with three carburetors. The roof of the sedan has been chopped to reduce it’s height.

I created the car from scratch using 3D modeling apps. The bulk of the modeling was done in Hexagon 3D and Silo 3D. For UV mapping I used 3DCoat. Textures were created in Photoshop and applied in Vue Complete 2015, where the scene was  rendered.

And a NPR render in Vue Complete 2015, I masked out the background from the render and substituted a paper texture in Photoshop…

Camera: Olympus E620 & Sigma 18-125 lens

Last year I purchased an used Sigma 18-125 lens from Adorama and it gave new life to my beloved but aging Olympus E620 which had been sitting idle since purchasing my two Nikons – D3300 & D7100….
