Machine Crossbow

This is a continuation on the crossbow theme. The previous version was based on the traditional idea of what a crossbow could do, albeit in a fantasy style. It could only fire one shoot at a time and required the standard, slow reloading technique. I wanted to explore further and mix the modern notions of machine guns but still set it in the medieval era. So some sketches featuring levers, handcranks, flywheels and crossbow-bolt magazines...

Since I have such a bias in my portfolio toward the sci-fi end of concept, I've decide to work on a couple of Fantasy / Historic items to add a bit of variety.  First up is a crossbow design, so I've produced a number of quick sketches to get an idea of the subject. I quite like the heraldic feel of 2b so I'll be working that one up and posting it soon.

Tin Car CG model

Although this is supposed to be a concept blog, I've decided to add a model of a tin car I've done recently purely as a bit of practice for the Stereo Lithography work I occasionally do. The model was created using Rhino version 3 and then exported into Modo to create the final render. I must add that the car is not my own design and was merely something I had to hand that looked like an enjoyable object to spend some time on.

Two Man Mech

This is a rough sketch of a mech for two operators I produced this weekend. It would still have a lot to resolve in order to finish, but I currently feel happy enough with it to leave it loose. The inspiration for the hemsphere head shields was taken from a 1939 Renault Chenillette Tank.

Rosie in Colour

I suppose this is really when I'm going to start using this blog as a blog. Before now I've used this site as a portfolio of my old work, but from now on I'm keen to add pieces as and whilst I produce them. It is also likely to mainly be made up of personal work, as a lot of my current commercial work is not allowed to be shown for a while yet.

It's been a while since I uploaded the grey-scale image of Rosie but I've now got around to adding a couple of colour layers on Photoshop.
