Ideal Evening Commute

I needed to paint something with color and had a location. This is my ideal commute. No cars and low sun through trees.

My Joker

The Joker is the greatest antagonist I've ever read. The Nolan movie showed how something so ugly could be used to reveal the darkness and corruption in another. This is my take.

SWAT Potato

This was for a game I pitched. I called it SWAT Potato. I intended it be a side scroller and the battles would happen in a fridge. The enemies were spoiled fruit. And you would have fun... cleaning out the fridge. Just imagine it.

Square Shape Language

I added cockpits today. It made it easier to see what I was laying down. I really need to dig into the joint making, that seems to be holding me back some - at least when I'm trying to visualize the mechanics of the legs. I need to step away from the hydraulics for a bit and focus on the shape as a whole. On the early passes I think I was missing the large, medium, small distribution. I'm happy about the mileage, but I think slowing down and focusing on what I'm making is going to take me a long way with my next attempts. The cube drills are starting to me more fun but I see no reason to post those as it would be as exciting as watching an athlete stretch as opposed to doing their thing on the court.

Practical Application

  This set is my attempt to follow some direction to get a result that is a little more grounded. It's still not where I want, but it's miles ahead of the garbage I was knocking out a few weeks ago.
What is lacking: • that answer to what - what does it do?
                           • reference to influence and ground the design.
                           • indication of place. not an environment per se
                              just something to help further a narrative.
                           • and other stuff

This one is a turd. It prompted me to try again, the results being what you see above.

Mech Silhouettes

  This is what I've been doing all week. Silhouettes. As many as I could do. My goal was 1000 but this being the last day, I just don't think I'm going to make it. The first three days were rough and I really wasn't all that pleased with the results, but I'm glad I did them just so it would get me closer to my ultimate goal: being a better designer.  After today I will be posting all of them. It will take me a while to scan them but when finished I'll post them all.
  Until then I present you with this -

post-it bash

I've been doing a ton of studying this week and have not been able to post as I would like. I did a little sketch on a post-it note (on the left) then rearranged it to create the creature on the right. It's not the most successful piece but it was nice to wind down doing it. I'll have a rather substantial upload on Friday.
