3:30 am

Below are some sketches from a newer sketchbook- which is now home to my 'Resolved' list, a list of resolutions that are a reminder and helpful tool to keep my life focused on Christ. So here are the pages surrounding those resolutions. Nothing much in particular, but just felt like posting something before the Fall semester starts.

Just decided since I found myself up at 3:30am as of now, that I'd post some of the starts to my sketchbook, all of which were done during unfortunate conditions of either strong icy winds of the Warf or in a car, or in an airplane with the passenger reclining into me enough that even my overhead light can't light what I'm drawing. The speedform-esc drawings are always a lot of fun to do and genrally don't take much thought to draw. The last one was on that flight (of which many prayers were made to keep my temper in check with the passenger in front of me) and was an inspired design of the cabin- hence why it looks weird. Why do I try drawing in odd circumstances? I ask a similar question as to why I'm up so late right now... time to sleep.

Industrial Design Drawing 3 Finals

Here is the final for the class (terrible photo). Not entirely satisfied with this product, however, pretty pleased with the fact that it is near impossible to tell what I cut and pasted from my pre-final sketches. This is supposed to be a 'hemispherical touch screen mouse,' use by 3D modelers to have an interactive touchscreen surface to move virtual objects around with a real 3D interface.
Above and below are some robotic animals. If I had more time I would have made at least 25 or more! These things are just way too much fun to do. They are generally done over an overlay of a hardshelled creature and then it is turned into some stellar vehicle whether it be an Giant Isopod hovercraft jet thing or a 'leaping' coconut crab personal transport... you know, because it would be awesome to own one! :P

This last page just shows my pre-final page layout as well as more robotic creatures.

Overall, it was a pretty amazing class. A whole lot of work in a short amount of time, but definitely worth taking. I'd recommend this to any concept artist who is into designing techs of any sort. Well, now time to catch up on some sleep and back to working hard on some more design and illustrating. Zzzzzzz........

ID3 Final Progress Sneak Peak

Here is a sneak peak from my final. I took a photo of this so that I could print it out to draw over a copy to get an idea of parts to be shown in the exploded view. This was done using Prismacolor Markers, Verathin, and Color Pencil plus a mesh texture to draw over. I'll see what my instructor has to say and if anything needs to be changed for the Final. There are several parts to this assignment so more to come soon!
