Drive!










Finally have time to post a "Drive" update! Last summer I helped finish a book with Scott Robertson and Annis Naeem. It's filled with crazy military, salvaged, aerospace and sport themed vehicles of all types. The book was almost done by the time I hopped on, but I managed to do a good amount of work on it and luckily convinced Scott to give me a sketch page! The rest is about as detailed as I've ever gone and it was a lot of learning and a lot of fun. The image before the sketches is an example of the Modo models Scott gave me to then paint-over, put in an environment, refine and add design details. One of the best summers of my life, and now I'm back working at DSP for the year. So if you haven't already, go get yourself a copy of DRIVE!

What program did you use to overlay the sketch on top so seamlessly. I am assuming photoshop but just wondering. The rendering is truly amazing, because it translates the details so well.
