Alright so it’s about time I posted more stuff from this project…! Some of the sketch work and a couple final renderings.
Somewhat “round 2″ for the bush plane project, for those who saw the first set from when I posted the preliminary stuff right out from my Honda internship.
Planview ended up staying pretty much the same since I liked it so much, though for school it’s the interior that really went through the wringer, and making the overall design flow together much better (since the interior and exterior are visually very much part of each other.)
Model photos coming soon!

I can't exactly post everything I did for them, the plane was more of a personal project whereas the rest was for actual projects, but their advanced studio does a ton of really interesting stuff that I hope makes it into reality.
Cars are probably going to be huge in upcoming decade or so, you might be stuck surrounded by the latest companies trying to automate cars and hit the market the hardest. Albeit, it might spread quickly into aviation, though motorcycles might be a bit harder to automate compared to cars.
The automotive world is fast changing, and it'll be interesting to see what happens in the coming years. The hardware for it is all there, it's now all up to the software/system and regulatory sides of this thing. A lot of the tech has been around for decades, it's just a matter of it finally getting implemented!
Aviation is already on its way to being automated, that's happening very fast as well. As for motorcycles? Doubt it - but that's something I like about them and other powersports vehicles. As cars develop into personal transport spaces/an autonomous network in which it might not even be a common thing to own a car anymore in the cities, the powersports market has huge potential to combine with all this new tech and make personal adventure/entertainment even more fun and accessible - being the new "escape" which is what cars used to be. Who knows!
Also, have your coworkers seen much of your other work? The mechanized monsters and such. If so, what do they think of it? Just curious.
Yeah it's well known that I do the vehicle monsters and dragons and such, haha!! Even at my grad show I had some of that work up alongside the vehicle projects for school. People generally love it, it doesn't always tie into the projects but I'll often do storyboarding or mix the more "entertainment" side into my work in a fun way. Seems to entertain people at least! And since I freelance on the side sometimes with creature/concept design stuff, I don't have any reason to hide it since it's very much part of what I do.
Anyways, I wish you luck on your internship. I should stop hanging around DA, it's getting late where I am.
And the internship was over last fall, right now it's on the full time job search since I've officially graduated - but who knows, I might still end up back at Honda, haha! Thanks!
