I wanted to enrich my portfolio with some solid Industrial Design, so I did this for the IDW at conceptart.org
I am really having fun with all this intricate designing process, I wanna do more like this again!
It's a combined troop carrier/gunship carrying up to 20 soldiers and deploying them in field combat.
The process was as follows:
I made little thumbnail sketches of sideviews and decided upon one of them. Then I painted
a roughly shaded 3D view in Photoshop and printed this with very low opacity onto the brown drawing paper (I love it!). I designed everything out with pencil and scanned back in. The shading was done in PS and I also drew the blueprints digitally!
who knows, I might model this out someday...
