Thought I’d upload some renderings of a cafe racer inspired, art deco / steampunk boat I’m working on in my spare time. It’s kind of meant to be sort of impractical and machine rather than human centric. It still needs a bunch of work and the seat right now is sort of just a placeholder.
Both steam punk and cafe racers are inspired by other things. You might want to check into the source material so the inspiration is a bit more pure. Look into streamline moderne, art deco like some of the radios of Walter Dorwin Teague. i think you can up the drama on the renders as well. Any sketch process on this? I think a lot of the forms could use bit of a calligraphic touch.
Thanks. Yea the renderings eventually are going to get a much more dramatic touch in an environment. I think I’m also going to add some fine detail with some small painted lines like the below photo. I was really drawn the art direction from the video game dishonored 2 and was looking at that a bunch when I was planning this out. I didn’t do a ton of sketch work on this just a top and side view and a 3/4 to get the main form right and I’ve been sort of building and sketching over top of CAD from there making decisions little by little.
