Jean “Moebius” Giraud on drawing from the work of other artists, from life, and from photos…

[JEAN] GIRAUD: Yes. I began as a self-taught artist, copying other artists; then, luckily, I entered an art school, which freed up my hand and opened my eyes to a degree. It’s very dangerous to work only second-hand — referring only to other artists, that is. My teachers were of the old school: they insisted that in order to transcribe reality with any degree of freshness or personality, the eye had to be confronted with the three-dimensional image.

BOXX Technologies Blog

By John Vondrak Daniel Simon loves machines. He is intrigued by how they work and consumed by how they look. For many vehicle designers and aficionados of transportation modes, his affection is not uncommon. As children, my late brother and I were obsessed with aircraft. Born in Germany, Simon began his professional career as a designer at Volkswagen and Bugatti. A Terrifying Beauty – the Art of Piotr Forkasiewicz > Vintage Wings of Canada. By Dave O'Malley In the black of night of 8 June 1944, two days after the D-Day invasions of Normandy, the dark hulk of a four-engined Lancaster bomber of 15 Squadron, Royal Air Force, trailing a blow-torching curtain of livid flame, lurches heavily into a dive over the French countryside, a few miles to the west of Paris.

The flame is bright enough to illuminate the farms below in a pale and ghostly light. The big bomber is dying, her lifeblood streaming in angry, high octane sheets from her starboard wing fuel tanks. 100 lat klasycznej animacji. Historia Winsora McCaya. How Ferrari Spins. Ferrari's are built by a company that makes race cars.

How Ferrari Spins

Race cars are tuned before every race for the track they're going to be running on. One would assume that every Ferrari built is made for driving on public roads which, last time I checked, didn't have hairpin turns or banked corners. If journalists were to test a Ferrari by driving around trying to pick up chicks then nothing would need to be done to the car. Ferrari engineers are merely tuning the cars to the expected driving situation, something any racing enthusiast can do on their own. Matt Rhodes: Concept Art – Behind the Scenes. The role of a Concept Artist is the role of an explorer, tasked with charting a world without sunlight.

Matt Rhodes: Concept Art – Behind the Scenes

Bear with me here: You start off with your reference and research. These are well established base camps. They’re well lit, highly populated and safe. The public perception of what concept art means is severely skewed.

While I have to accept that people broadly label art created for games and films concept art, including promotional illustrations, it is necessary to get real about what concept art as a craft actually is. My students and other young artist I talk to get presented with misleading standards for concept art, which feeds into insecurities and doubts. And that puts unnecessary roadblocks in their ways.

Remember when you were 10 and all the cars you drew could fly, the wheels were bigger than the doors and you thought a robot would be serving you breakfast by the age of 15?

How Do You Design The Future? Ask Syd Mead

Anything was possible. Well, here’s a guy who did all that as a kid and just carried on drawing. Out-there cars, incredible spaceships, lavish buildings, strange new worlds – for over 50 years, Syd Mead has been making our dreams virtual reality. He’s defined our collective vision of what could be in store for us all; if you’ve watched Blade Runner you will have walked a mile in this man’s mind.

Is it really worth my time to give Roger Deakins an introduction?

Surely you already know him as the talented cinematographer behind films like The Shawshank Redemption, A Beautiful Mind, and almost every Coen Brothers film since Fargo.

Wait but why: Putting Time In Perspective. Humans are good at a lot of things, but putting time in perspective is not one of them. It’s not our fault—the spans of time in human history, and even more so in natural history, are so vast compared to the span of our life and recent history that it’s almost impossible to get a handle on it. If the Earth formed at midnight and the present moment is the next midnight, 24 hours later, modern humans have been around since 11:59:59pm—1 second.

And if human history itself spans 24 hours from one midnight to the next, 14 minutes represents the time since Christ. My Top 10 Design Business Failures. 7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding.
