Help pick my 1000th deviation!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 9, 2016, 4:25 PM
So with (just a little) fanfare, I'll be hitting the 1000th deviation soon. I'm at 998 today. I can't even begin to estimate the hours of creation that went into this body of work.

So I've been wondering what sort of submission it might be. While I'm not looking for specific ideas, I am interested in hearing if my followers would like to see:

A.  3D car render
B   3D motorcycle render
C  3D Sci-fi future technology render
D  3D weapon render (something I'm just getting into)
E  2D Car illustration like I was really into a few years back

Of course if you feel like you have some spectacular idea for something, feel free to let me know what it is.  The genre that gets the most mentions will be what I'll do my best to submit.

Here's 600v's quirky retro modern single seat RM 307.  I really can't make up my mind if I like it or not. It's both cute and kind of ugly all at once. - your thoughts?

Hello, what book do you use to understand mechanical designs?

Hi Alex,

No "book" in my case. Nearly 40 years or professional industrial design experience are what I rely upon to create what i hope are believable works.

Ah wow.... Do you mind me asking how you separate your time learning with the time with your family?
Do you have perhaps an effective method of studying parts?

The family is sort of a non-issue anymore. My children are both adults now with families of their own. I also operate my own business, so down time is when I work on portfolio stuff. Both of those factors allow more fre time for me than is probably typical for most hobbyist artists.

Much of studying is simply observation. If there's an interest these days, there's likely a youtube channel for it. Pick an area that interests you (suspension, robotics, hydraulics, linkages, engines internals, etc) and search for images and videos. Most things are pretty simple once you see them in action. Make notes and sketches, as that helps you cement them in your memory.  It's all just becoming familiar with stuff.

If you'd never seen one, a bicycle could be a pretty complex machine, but if you've owned one, worked on one, ridden one, then you could probably draw a pretty accurate one based on your existing knowledge. Once you become familiar with other mechanisms, it becomes "easy" to figure out almost anything.
