Delorean 2011 Concept

For the last few weeks now I’ve been working on a hypothetical relaunch project of the Delorean DMC-12. During the process I came up with a concept of how a relaunched Delorean could look (similar to the remodels of other classics like the Ford Mustang). After weeks of market analysis and user testing we realised that The Delorean is just too big of a cult classic to change the design, so we decided to go with a relaunch similar to the Vespa scooter, where the exterior remains pretty much the same, but the performance and internal equipment is updated.

I thought I’d post the concept here so it wouldn’t get lost amongst all the other drawings I have cluttering up my hard drive! 🙂

Website Testing

Hey guys, I’m still here!

I’ve been very busy with school work lately hence the lack of updates on the blog. Funnily enough myself and a friend have been learning PHP and have been writing some blog code from scratch. I’ve also been playing around with styling using HTML5 and CSS3. It’s not finished and it’s more just a sandbox site, but you can check it out here:-

I have a few projects on my hands right now, including a 3d model of a Delorean, which I’ll post when it gets further along 🙂

HMS Westminster 3D model

As some people know, I used to serve in the Royal Navy as an engineer. During my time in the navy I served aboard the Type 23 frigate ‘HMS Westminster’ (The finest ship in the fleet I might add). Over the years I’ve made several attempts at modeling her in 3D, however, I was never able to achieve a standard to which I felt she deserved..until now!

The ship is still a work in progress and you can follow its progress on the Military-Mesh forums

User Testing of the Blog

Hi everyone, I’m currently doing a user test of this blog so I can refine its design. Currently the blog averages at 400 – 500 hits everyday and quite consistently, however, I would like to promote the site more and improves its usability. I am doing this redesign as part of a school project, so if people could please fill out the following questionnaire it would be very much appreciated, it should only take a couple of minutes.

Suggestions for improvements would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks in advance

USS Enterprise – NCC-1701-F

About a month ago a contest was announced to design the Enterprise-F. Sadly the contest was only open to residents of the United States, but I decided to doodle out a few ideas anyway. In the end I came up with the idea of a merging my Hurricane and Hikaru class designs. I always liked the idea of a more sleek and organic look to future starships as technology levels progressed, so I wanted the Enterprise-F to signify a leap forward in starship design. I’m pretty sure that this design would not look out of place in a fleet of Starfleet ships. Size wise she’s about  the length of the Soveriegn class. I was intending to make the ship in 3D and submit it to the contest, but since I can’t enter I thought I’d share my ideas here 🙂

Formula One car

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been working on a low poly model of a Formula One car for a school project, you can see the result above. I might make some tweaks to the engine’s air intakes as well as improve the suspension, but overall I’m pretty happy with it, more so since it will only be visable for about 10 seconds during a presentation! 🙂

November Update

It’s amazing how much time my education is taking up! I have very little free time to do my own artwork these days, I don’t think I’ve done anything even vaguely Trek related in 2-3 months now. However, I’m really happy with the skills I’m picking up on this education, especially in regards to web design and animation. The image above is a painting I did a few weeks back. I love the works of Mondrial, infact I’m very fond of most of the work that came out of the Bauhaus. Which can probably be seen in the style of my painting! Continue reading
