"Year, 3384" 3D model of a mechanized Feeder

This is what the 3D model of the Feeder looks now as of now. The "Dome" component was more difficult to construct though it may not look it being a simple circular shape. This project has been very educational in what Solidworks is capable of and can't wait to print this out in 3D next spring.

Engineer, walking, Concept art for senior thesis.

This drawing is for my senior thesis; concept art for a science-fiction world I have created . In the fall I constructed the plot, a diagram of all the characters and a 3D model prototype (seen in a earlier posting). I am now focusing on concept art for the characters in action positions.
Here a senior engineer and he is equipped with a Xamborg Examination Arm, or XARM for short. This tool is mounted over his left arm and attaches to his shoulder and breast plate for weight distribution and comfort. With this tool a engineer can perform multiple tasks with amplified power and precision.
He is also equipped with a standard tool vest, belt and tool pants. In addition, the clothes, boots, helmet and goggles are all supplies that have been past down since colonization three generations ago. Being a Engineer is a lifetime position starting from childhood apprenticeship. They are cherished among there people because they are essential for survival.
I will continue posting concept action poses for all of the characters the rest of the winter and spring.

Winter digital skecthes

After taking a little break from my tablet in the fall I wanted to get some practice over the holidays. Here are a couple digital sketches I made around my house in the last few days.
