1931 Ford Model A pickup hot rod

Love these traditional styled hot rods. Would look right at home in the pages of the Rodder’s Journal publication.

2016 Atlantic Nationals

I had the extreme pleasure of attending this years annual Atlantic Nationals Car Showin Moncton, New Brunswick. It is the largest car event in Atlantic Canada and one of the largest in Canada. There were close to 2,000 cars this year…

1928 Ford Roadster pickup & 1931 Ford Pickup hot rods 

Show attendant directing driver of 1931 Ford to a parking spot while the driver of the 28 Roadster looks on. It is quite evident these cars are influenced by the traditional style hot rods of HAMB and the Rodder’s Journal magazine.

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.

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…

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….
