I took inspiration for the shots from some of nike’s recent integrated uniform photography.
Overall a fun day of studio lighting, DSLRs, and lots of Photoshop.
Just finished compiling the rest of my process for my most recent studio project… you can find the full set of drawing, rendering, 3D CAD, and images here on my website.
Incase you missed my previous posts, I researched Art Deco and Modern Islamic Architecture in order to develop my own aesthetic concept towards a new type of vehicle. Much of my vehicle inspiration came from things like the ORIGINAL Tron Solar Sailer, Elisium concept art, as well as some of Syd Mead’s work and podracer-esque vehicle concepts.
The vehicle is made to be a grand spectacle as it travels, for only the super rich.
A quick little motorcycle sketch render I did. I used hollow body electric guitars as my inspiration. I like the colors.
Working on some backpack ideation sketching today. Having fun and finally getting used to the smaller 12” Cintiq at work. My life is so hard, downgrading from my 23” at school to a 12” at my paid job ;)
Here are some more images of Salena’s costume of Sheik. For how complicated the costume looks, it was actually pretty easy to do. It was her first Con and she’s typically not the nerdy type, so picking a character was difficult. Sheik was about the only character she fondly remembered as I used to play Super Smash Bros. Melee with her on Gamecube when we were younger.
She wore a blue long sleeve Under Armour shirt and we bought some navy leggings from Forever 21 for the pants. For the painting across her chest I bought a 3-pack of boys’ white T-Shirts and we painted them with acrylic paint and cut up the extras for her bandages, body wraps, and the ninja face mask. For the lighter blue shapes on the leggings we bought another pair of lighter blue leggings and i drew on the shapes while she wore them and then cut them out. We then hand stitched them on to the Navy ones and painted the edge with white acrylic. Some navy-colored knock-off Toms shoes and we were ready to go!
She was so popular at the Con. She was really surprised by how many people knew who she was and wanted pictures with her, Even Grant Wilson from Ghost Hunters TAPS who was there signing autographs got out of his seat while talking to fans and asked for a picture with her. (I guess he was a big Zelda fan)
All in all, I’m super happy that she had a fun time. She was really into it by the end, and I know she would never have enjoyed the experience had she not picked out such an awesome costume.
Dressed as Marty McFly for Columbus Comic Con. My little sister dressed as Sheik from Zelda.
There just happened to be a Delorean Time Machine at the Columbus Comic Con and I got to sit with it, which was soooo cool and so much fun! Shout out to the couple who built the time machine and use it to raise money for Michael J. Fox’s Parkinsons Disease Foundation, Oliver and Terry Holler at tothefuture.org
Salena’s costume turned out great! She got so much attention from people, so it was a really good first experience cosplaying for her. It felt like more people recognized her character than mine!
So my little sister (who is 20) and I figured out that Comic-Con is coming to my hometown of Columbus, OH this weekend and decided that we would make this an ideal sister-bonding experience by going in full cosplay.
I am certainly the nerd of the family, so it took us a little while to decide what would be the most fitting outfit for my little sister. Finally Salena and I got into a conversation about our many hours of Gamecube SuperSmash Bros. Melee years ago, and Salena decided that she HAD to go as Sheik, Zelda’s Alter Ego… Little bit of a complex outfit, but I think we’re going to make it great!
I have my character chosen…. and I’m sooo excited to get it all together and take some awesome pics.
I’ll be sure to take lots of pics of the show and post some of my favorite/most inspiring outfits at the con. Both Stan Lee and the great William Shatner are scheduled to be there, I will probably cry if I get to meet either of them!
Also… you should all download and listen to Shatner’s album, Has Been, produced and arranged by Ben Folds. It’s absolutely awesome, hilarious, and actually very enjoyable to listen to. Definitely shows a different side of Shatner that I had never seen before.
Started my job a few weeks ago with Priority Designs in Columbus. It has been an awesome experience so far! Working on products from softgoods and sports equipment, to faucets and some really cool secret projects!
Above is the Cannondale Cerv Concept that Priority is responsible for from a few years ago. Really cool example of what these talented people are capable of!
Can’t wait to see what I’ll be able to work on next! Look out for projects from my time here once they’re officially released!
Worked up to my final image board for my Summer Semester Industrial Design class at DAAP. It was a lot of hard work, drawing, 3D modeling and Photoshop, but I finally got it done. Critique on Tuesday, I’ll try and post pictures of some of my other classmates projects then.
