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.

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…

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

Christmas Tree Hunters

On Christmas Eve of yesteryear, a father drives his Model A Ford home from work, stopping along the country road to forage for a suitable Christmas tree.

A young lad in the company of his companion dog, pulls his sled homeward with a cargo of a freshly cut fir tree.

I created this image using my Wacom tablet, &ArtRage 4.5 with some color correction in Photoshop CC 2015.
