Haven't done much personal work in Awhile

Just thought it was time to post something. I haven't done much design type work outside of work, so now that I did, I figured I'd post it. I forgot how much fun it was to do stuff like this, work stuff is always really formal and more often than not, presented as a digital model. This is my interpretation of what a 2015 Nissan GT-R could look like.

Keyshot test renderings

These renderings are of a lower triple-clamp I designed in Alias. It was rendered in Keyshot using the 14 day trial period, hence the watermarking. The shots were done using default lighting, all I did was apply chrome material to the bolts and gunmetal to the rest of the clamp.

Viscom 4 Project

A work in progress. The Alias screenshots show where I'm at currently, with the top turret and wheels just being placeholders at the moment. The tires are finished, but I'm not sure if they'll stay black. I just need to finish a few surface transitions, and start adding little details here and there.

A sketch for no particular reason

Audi rally car, for no reason. I was sketching for a completely unrelated project, and ended up doing this for fun.

Bunkspeed Move Test Render

I spent some time last night with the trial of Bunkspeed Move, and I gotta say its seriously worth the educational price. Once I watched the included quick tutorials I was up and running in no time. Decal placement was the easiest I've ever come across, and behaves like you would have always assumed it should.

The truck is for the Michelin Design Challenge, and one of the deliverables required is that we give them a 360 degree turntable of our final model with a completely black background. Look for more on the truck itself in the coming weeks.

Class 8 truck interior preliminary renderings

Sleeper in bed mode

Sleeper in office mode

These are preliminary renderings of my truck interior that I presented on Thursday. The feedback I received was good, and one critism I did get was that the cab didn't have quite the level of excitement and cohesiveness that the sleeper quarters had. That should be an easy revision though, and we'll see how it ends up in the future. The concept is the table rides on tracks and can drop to the bed position, in which the pad from the rear wall is snapped on top, and the leg bolster pops up, turning a twin bed into a full. The table can also be dropped all the way to the floor, fitting flush with it, for added mobility in the sleeper quarters. There is also space for a flip down upper bunk, or it can be replaced with a storage unit.

Class 8 Truck instrument panel ideation

Here are some ideation sketches of instrument panels for my truck project leading up to what became my final direction, which is similar to the last one here. I left the center stack blank because the concept was that it would all be a touchscreen display.
