De­sign­ing the trans­port

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I like the ba­sic idea of this me­chan­i­cal walker so I con­tinue tweak­ing the de­sign. Paint­ing and eras­ing selections with the Lasso tool, I re­move the arms, re­shape the un­der­car­riage, and re­fine the ar­mour shell. I try more an­gu­lar and boxy forms, but this rounded and slightly or­ganic ar­mour gives it a fun, bug like ap­pear­ance.

Ac­cu­mu­lat­ing de­tails

I paint in panel lines, vents, lad­ders, doors, rig­ging and ex­haust. For de­tails in the en­gine ar­eas I im­port ref­er­ence of en­gine parts, trans­form and over­lay them to quickly in­di­cate de­tail. I do the same us­ing images of grunge and rust to mix some weath­er­ing into the sur­faces. This tech should feel like it’s been al­tered sig­nif­i­cantly since orig­i­nally man­u­fac­tured.
