Renault futuristic concept vehicle by koleos33
Renault futuristic concept vehicle
After learning basics about art and design and tryouts to shade something different then vehicles,I'm returning to my big passion.Here is my latest concept car I sketched last night.I've been inspired with renault logo.For now it is a quick sketch,but maybe once it will be a rendering or 3d model.Enjoy my work.
Female face form practice by koleos33
Female face form practice
I watched video on youtube about fundamentals of the design and art,and that led me to dive more in to some elements of it.Then I went to check video tutorials on ctrl website and dive more in to painting techniques and composition.My favorite practice is about form,so I tried to play with facial forms yesterday.I'm more in vehicle design,so this is my small tryout.I sketched first eyes and nose with pencil,and then I tried to create facial forms with brushes in sketchbook pro from my visual library.I've been using my skills about rendering simple forms to produce this image.It is not bad for a beginner and instincts too.I didn't finished art or design school so it was very interesting and inspirative for me.

Here is which videos on youtube inspired me to deeply dive in to the art fundamentals……
Simple forms practice by koleos33
Simple forms practice
I made this image in sketchbook pro 6 after watching some tutorials from ctrl paint and concept cookie youtube channel and others.When I get rusty with my sketching skills I like to inspire myself by watching other people tutorials.It helps me also when I'm in lazy mode.It is good to practice with simple shapes,also it helps later when I want to sketch more complex shape.Enjoy my work.……
Retrodesign concept car project by koleos33
Retrodesign concept car project
My older project I worked on last year.I've been asked by the owner of Bricklin classic car built 1976 to create new modern version for the year 2014.I have made a sketch and I started to create 3d model,but soon my client abended the project.Anyway last few days I searched for my unfinished 3d models and decided to finish the project by my own taste.Model was built in blender3d 2.71 with sub-d modeling technic.Final renderings were created with awesome Simlab Composer 2014 version.For my background I've used free hdr image sample from website.Final image composition was created in gimp graphic software.If you like you could see more renderings of my retrodesign project on link below.…

If you need my 3d model for your projects check my 3d model renderings with cycles on link below…
Lambo Huracan retouching with gimp by koleos33
Lambo Huracan retouching with gimp
After retouching my Exona concept,I've also tried to do something better with my rendering of Lamborghini Huracan.Realistic rendering was created with my rendering software Simlab Composer several months ago.3d modeling with blender3d 2.70 version.I've made this retouching with gimp brushes,layer effects etc.I've been worried about how I will do it,because of the lighter background,but when I added black background at the back of my car,then I saw I can create a nice artwork.At the end I tried to get some color balance with gradients,and I've found nice color to overlay my carbody.Enjoy my work.

Check below my retouching project where you can see how it looked before and after retouching…

I'm designer amateur.I like to design both in 2d graphic and 3d.My themes are mostly futuristic(cars).Everything what I learned about design softwares,learned from books,software help and online tuts.And of course many of hours infront of my PC.Never finished school for design,because had no money for the education.Was accepted by Coventry University and Academy of Art, San Francisko 4 years ago.For Automotive design courses.Money problem stopped me.That didn't stopped me to work as professional 1 year as graphic and industrial packaging designer.During that period I learned a lot about design.I still hopping that dream will continue,or go to higher level.The time will show my new achievements.Without creative ideas I would be like an empty shell.Right now I'v focused on 3dmodeling and rendering skills.Enjoy in my gallery.

Thank you wayner8088 for your great support and for your prophecy.I also hope so,that it will happend someday,but for now I have to be realistic and keep and work on my 3d models,which I sell on online websites.3d modeling is my only secure source for earnings for now.Maybe in the years to come,car companies will notice my talent,but to many times I spreaded my wings,and flew high and then crashed hard to the ground.Even after that I don't give up,cause design is my passion.I'm closing to my 40s and I still believe in my dreams and have faith in me,but we shall see what future brings.:happybounce:

I'm in my mid-40's and still wonder what I want to do in life. It makes me quiver knowing I may have more yesterdays than tomorrows, so I try to live my life every day as though it were the last. :eager:
