Based on concept art by Malaveldt : [link]
Mike has become my favorite conceptual artist lately. His ideas and art are very inspiring. I wrote him with a request to recreate some of his stuff in 3D and received his blessing, so here's the first collaborative work. This is a "retro-future" style armored vehicle. Some people term this style as "Skortch", where new concepts are fashioned from older hardware in a future where supplies are limited and recycling technology is a must.
Modeled, textured and rendered over a 4 day period using Mike's sketch as a guide with details from my own imagination and research of WWII and contemporary armor.
