Illusory Machine Shop
As an concept art enthusiast, I have created a handful design sketches of imagery vehicles and machineries. To organize this body of work, I started the Illusory Machine Shop (IMS) collection.
IMS - Aero Rally
Aero Rally was a concept sketch series I created a while ago. Recently, I decided to reinterpret these 2D sketches into 3D in quick modeling sessions, giving these old concepts a second life. The original sketch emphasized gesture and atmospheric expression. During 3D reinterpretation, I wanted to add bit of mechanical detail and rationales: How does it hover? The "floating" nature of the vehicles reminded me of the ground effect boats, so I decide to incorporate some elements into the design.
This 3D reinterpretation of my old concept art sketch is an homage to Tatsuo Yoshida's Speedracer. I set a very short time frame (a couple of hrs) to challenge myself while completing these concept creation/modeling exercises. In response, I select a very few critical details to help the model look more interesting.
