Work week highlight! <<<SWIPE FOR PICS >>> So pumped with how this intake came out for 'Road Rage'. Deceptively tricky part...lots of compound angles, offsets and hidden asymetry built in so that the whole thing would both peek through the hood cutout perfectly and bolt up to the two Kinsler ITB banks on the motor. Some sneaky hidden mesh screens located in the mounting collars catch all the nearby birds and rocks that might get sucked up. πŸ¦…πŸ’₯πŸ’¨ Killer machine work by @spratica.

Friday flashback to about 12 years ago (yikes!) and my pre-Photoshop render days... Yup.. 3D all the things! (hence the user name πŸ˜ƒ) Learning Rhino meant finding things beyond the tutorials to challenge what I could do. Ducks and cameras from lofted spline curves wasn't cutting it. What better than a '33 style pickup hotrod mashup? Now my 3D world is more trick custom parts based, but the challenge and foundation of whole cars made for pretty good training...πŸ˜‰ What I would have given for Keyshot back then... #3d #rhino3d #hotrod #custom #design #cardesign #render #rendering #automotivedesign #3dmodelling #ford #33pickup #hotrodart #flamingo #keyshot #cad #caddesign #steelies #babymoons #cadrender #cadrendering

If muscle cars are my 'bread and butter', a '65 Catalina is a steak dinner, all the trimmings and a large smokey single malt to wash it down.πŸ₯ƒ Loving this chrome-laden, executive suite on wheels underway at @roadstershop. They don't make them like this any more. This will be tightened, tucked and packed with a full RS chassis, custom '8 lug' look wheels and a monster @mercuryracing 750hp SB4 motor. Mad Men status with a Metallica soundtrack... #pontiac #catalina #roadstershop #mercuryracing #sb4 #dohc #750hp #design #cardesign #render #rendering #automotivedesign #sketch #drawing #carsketch #wacom #photoshop #protouring

A few hours in the bag today laying down some basic linework on the K100... Really nice to see it taking on its intended form, stance and proportions. Correcting the normally interrupted flow from the tank lower line to the tail makes for way nicer rake. The GSXR usd forks and (hopefully) 18" hoops will add some beef. πŸ‚ A thorough reworking of the rear subframe and suspension is both unnecessary and completely necessary πŸ˜ƒ Let's see where this goes... #K100 #bmwk100 #bmw #CGmoto #moto #motorcycle #caferacer #cafefighter #streetfighter #custom #caferacerxxx #custombikes #k100caferacer #bmw #bmwmotorrad #gsxr #gsxrforks #forkswap #bmwcaferacer #caferacer #wacom #photoshop #design #bikebuild

New parts Friday! πŸ˜ƒ Super excited to get these eBay score GSXR 1000 forks set up and on the K100. Grabbing all the necessary bits from @cognitomoto here soon to get going on this here project of mine...

A little Saturday step-by-step on @darreld72 's awesome custom Volvo P1800 coupe.

Wrapped up @darreld72's slick Volvo P1800 render this week. Really looking forward to seeing it come together. These little Swedes have a ton of potential. #volvo #p1800 #volvoP1800 #design #cardesign #render #rendering #automotivedesign #sketch #drawing #carsketch #wacom #photoshop #protouring

Pt2... I can't quite convey the feeling you get when you complete the editing of a 'quick' video you shot of a car you designed 'doing work' . To have the luxury of not only the creative freedom to design the dang car, but to be given the reigns to shoot it, cut it, compose it and put it out to the world... just makes me smile... #fullCircle. To be as tickled (and more so) with the end product as the idea at the start is a testament to those involved with making it all happen. This was a risky one. We knew that, but nobody seemed to flinch so we knew to keep going. The GM 'people's choice' design award was the cherry on the cake.

So exited to say I finally have a project!!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ› οΈ <<<SWIPE for pics >>> Picked up this ridiculously clean BMW K100 this week. One owner, factory original everything and fully loaded with all the 80s plastic bits BMW could throw at it. It even had the original tool kit and puncture repair kit with baby Co2 canisters ...It's pretty 'sandals with socks' right now, but I have plans! Started tearing into the rear half today with the fairing coming off tomorrow hopefully so I can properly 'see' the bike. Can't wait to see where it goes.... Stay tuned! #chrisbuildsabike #finally #bmwmotorrad #K100 #bmwk100 #projectbike #bikebuild #flyingbrick #bmw #moto #motorcycle #caferacer #cafefighter #streetfighter #custom #caferacerxxx

Not to be left out of the #2017bestnine squad, here's mine. An awesome year under the belt both personally and professionally. Began work on some awesome projects coming up in 2018, while some personal favorites were completed and brought some serious hardware back to the shop.πŸ† Some big things happening next year so stay tuned! Thanks as always to @roadstershop for just being an incredible place full of the most talented, dedicated and hard working people I've ever met and for them to put their trust in me to try and make it look cool.

4 things happened today: 2 were good.... Thing #1. I dismantled my very new fridge and performed an ice lobotomy on it...our produce now sits in the cold garage (aka 'fridge') and on the snow covered deck outside (aka' freezer') while the expensive p.o.s. defrosts. Thing#2. While attempting to remove and replace the faulty dishwasher air gap under the sink, I drove it into my chin with the force of a thousand torques (yay for cuts within beards πŸš‘πŸ˜·). Thing#3. I finally have an organized @hotwheelsofficial collection of sorts up and looking cool! Thing#4: so pumped to have my @eblackdesign artwork up and on the wall where it belongs. Time for a nap... #thursday #hotwheels #hotrod #hotwheels #diecast #hopup #hotwheelsofficial #diecast #fucksamsung #icebergs #srsly #wtf #hotrodart #eblackdesign #hopupmagazine #traditionalrods #vintage #rodandcustom #hamb

Interior for a rad @roadstershop RS4R chassis and @mercuryracing SB4 7.0 equipped Bronco currently going together at the shop. Original 'bones' with a twist: 'doubled' gauge pod, glove box and vent shifted left to clear a roll cage, vintage look ac vents and new switch location. New center console hides navigation screen inside the 'locker' with wood trim to match doors... And blue. Lots of blue.

Evolution of a render: I keep meaning to do some sort of timelapse of a drawing going together but I tend to get sidetracked with the... um... drawing etc.. While working on @darreld72 's Volvo though, I remembered to grab a few progress stills thoughout for a little peek how it all builds toward the final image.

Upgrade!!! After a delay of what felt like months (thanks @ups πŸ˜’), my new @wacom Cintiq 27QHD arrived this week!!! So pumped!! Decided that after 9 years of daily scribble abuse, my old Bamboo pen tablet should retire to home render duty and make way for this new beast. Got to take it for a run last week and boy is it a step change. This thing is HUGE!! Paired it up with an @ergotron arm for max adjustment. Drawings are now an immersive full body experience literally on top of a giant screen, in stark contrast to my previous 5.7" of workspace input. πŸ€“ So excited for this new tool at my fingertips and what it will do for my drawing style and workflow. #chrisbuysabigscreenthingy #minorityreport #wacom #cintiq #wacomcintiq #cintiq27 #pendisplay #design #cardesign #rendering #render #wacom #photoshop #carsketch #cardesign #automotivedesign

Saturday night Swede. Progress on this cool, modified '68 Volvo P1800 Coupe. Love these cars. Such a good design to start with and so much potential.

Shuffling some files round on an old drive and ran into some of my old old CADbikes! Need to get back on some of these things πŸ˜ƒ The one pictured is unfinished from sometime in 2005... tempted to wrap it up... or even start a new one! My tastes (and modeling skills) have probably evolved since then! Looks like I was shooting for a dual spring slider fork with a Rotrex blown Indian single πŸ€” #whynot #cad #3d #cadbikes #rhino #rhino3d #design #concept #rendering #motorcycle #custom #3dmodelling #nurbs #moto #bikes #custombike #bobber #indian #supercharged #cadbike

Black on black Friday throwback to my old 1970 Nova daily whip. 🏁πŸ’ͺ Loved this damn thing. Technically my first car too. No AC. No radio. No cup holders. No problem. From Ohio winters to California heat, it did it all without complaint and it could fit a whole mountain bike in the trunk πŸ€“ #imissyou #chevy #chevrolet #muscle #musclecar #nova #blackfriday #v8 #350 #classiccars #vintage #oldschool #black #chevynova #70nova
