syd mead tribute design

just finished this up for the NVArt accelerate contest over at cg society. http://events.cgsociety.org/NVArt/05/ theirs a ton of really cool designs , stop by and check them out. I wanted to start getting involved with the community a little more and thought this might be a great way to start. I didnt find out about this contest until the half way point , so I only had a month. Im pretty pleased with how it turned out, but Im itching to get a nice organic model going next!!!! concepts for the Boss Battle contest on the table now, will post soon..

a few more sketches

I just finished up a sketchbook and scanned and compressed the best of the batch. I wanna try to get into the habbit of documenting the stuff I like as most of it just piles up in cabinets and flat drawers usually never seeing the light of day. Its also nice to be able to give the drawings a final scrub and throw some color in there at the last minute. A lot of the work is really abstract and machine based, at one point I was thinking about doing a series of 12 paintings in that style but abandoned the idea wit my growing interest in digital tools. Ive got a few cool models half way done and will polish them off shortly after I finish a current model Im trying to finish up for the syd mead tribute contest. I found out about it mid process so Im not sure what im gonna end up with, wish me luck!
