Motorcycle Sketch Demo- 1968 Benelli 175cc

I have been meaning to sketch out my motorcycle (my grandpa’s old bike) for some time now.  I started with just a simple papermate fine point on marker paper with the sketch below.  Feeling out the shapes, silhouette, proportions and placement of each part.  There is lots of room in the engine area, because Benelli used this frame for 4 different size engines (125, 175, 250 and 360cc!).  Click on each image below for the step by step demonstration!

Smart Car.

Pretty straight up…time to draw a Smart Car!  They have such cool little personalities,  it makes it easy to capture the character like feel that these cars have.  Used a ultra fine point Sharpie and Pentel Sign Pen to bold up the out side lines.  Keep it loose and free… Enjoy!

back to basics: syd mead

Since its been a long while since my last post, I felt like I needed to get back to some of my basics to get the ball rolling again.  Also its “back to school”time…it can be really helpful to warm up your school year with some of the basics you learned throughout art school.   I threw on the first Syd Mead Gnomon tutorial video, and sketched along with him.  http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/store/category/107/Syd-Mead

Tron v. Tr2n (Legacy)

In the spirit of Daniel Simon’s soon to be released concept art on the new Tron 2 sequel, Tr2n…I decided to look back into Daniel Simons biggest influence…Syd “god” Mead’s original Tron concept art and pull from it….the name of that user is….TRON!

The Official trailer is finally live!…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_jI1j7YVBY&feature=player_embedded
