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…
Love 3DCoat 4.5 and Vue Complete 2015 is the best Vue EVER…..

I designed the Grobo Car as a future rear engine hot rod. I modeled the car from scratch using 3D modeling applications Groboto 3D v 3.3 (90%) & Hexagon 3D v 2.5 (10%). The car was textured using shaders in Vue Complete 2015. It was also rendered in Vue Complete. Slight postwork in Photoshop 2015 CC.
The car is influenced by my love of hot rods, American cars of the 1930s to 1950s and foreign sports cars.
I named the vehicle Grobo after Groboto 3D of which I did the bulk of the modeling in…
The 2D version of my Grobo car can be seen here

Another digital illustration I created set in Victorian England.
A lady walks on the bridge while below a boatman crosses the river. Above in the sky a hawk looks for a place to land among the tress while seagulls gather in flight above the castle. In the distance a ship sails.

Since this render I’ve upgraded to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5.6 via Adobe Cloud. And loving the cloud experience…

His cousins already at grandmother’s show grandpa the snowman they created.
In the distance the locals gather at the church for an evening of Christmas Eve mass…
Rendered in Vue Complete 2014 which is a pure joy to use. The boy and dog were posed in DAZ Studio Pro and exported to Vue. I modeled the bridge and road in Hexagon 2.5. The buildings are from Google Warehouse. The red cardinal is a freebie from Lyne’s Creations. All distant people are Chipp Walter’s meta peps. Cars are from Cornucopia3D and Google Warehouse.
