1974 Yamaki SC300 by Pixel-pencil
1974 Yamaki SC300
As part of a bigger scene I needed to build a motorcycle- and after a week and a half of trackpad labor, here's this! I don't fully understand motorcycles, so some of this is just a hazy guess as to what is actually going on, but I think for a background prop, it's convincing enough. 

I have no idea what this type of bike is called though, where the gas tank and the seat are effectively the exact same height. I love the look of it, but finding reference for it was quite tough. 

I honestly am not too sure what else to say. :/ 

Enjoy! :D

While this event did happen a little while ago, its still got me rigid with excitement, and figured I should blabber about it anyways!

From what I understand, the College for Creative Studies Transportation Design Program's toughest year is Sophomore year... And now I'm done with it. They pushed me and my close friends to the limits, but this meant we improved by such huge leaps and bounds in this amount of time that it's hard for me understand just how far I've come. 

In the last days of the year, we undergo "Final Review" where the full time faculty give you a honest critique of your work, what they've seen you improve on and what needs work, and more importantly, giving you a talk about what you'll be doing next year. You see, the Transportation Department has three branches; Exterior Design (the outsides of cars), Interior Design (the insides of cars) and Transportation Design (vehicles, basically whatever else you can think of, tanks, yachts, planes, go karts, whatever you can think of). They decide what your strength is, and then you basically get to follow their guidance into your individual branch (that sounds cruel the way I put it, but it's not, honest). About 15 out of the 60 of us got kicked from the major (that's actually pretty freaking harsh), but this major doesn't really let any extra excess stick around. 

But then there was my review. Was I the best? Nooooo, far from it. But they gave me something that not too many people are offered, the complete option. The wide option choice. They said that the portfolio I had presented was of strong enough quality that I could go any direction I wanted- whether that be Exterior, Interior, Trans- whatever I chose. This is a pretty rare honor, being told you're strong in every suite and one that has had me overwhelmed since the day of. I still haven't decided fully what I would like to do, but I've had my heart set on the Transportation Design branch (I honestly never thought I would have the opportunity to get into the high ranks of Exterior) for a long time now, but the idea of doing Exterior Design (even if only for a semester) is something that is too cool to simply shove off. 

Well, sorry for rambling. I'm sure the future will come and go much faster than I expect, so stay tuned! (And thanks for listening!)

(Also, I've been officially using sketchup for 4 years now, yay! :D )

Auto Exterior Clay Models by Pixel-pencil
Auto Exterior Clay Models
Please Press Download! :D

After a whole semester of all nighters and long days, this was the result, 9 clay complete clay themes, done over the course of ~6 weeks. 

At CCS (College for Creative Studies) the Exterior Studio offers students the opportunity to build 1/5 scale clay model (they're about 2 feet long) cars. The general aim of the class was to make 5, some people made 3, others less, a couple other people built 7-8, and then there was me, who built 9. There was a huge amount of payoff here, for huge amounts of work. For each theme, it was required to have an orthographic tape drawing, and three key sketches for each, and of course a clay model. These were not "balanced" clay models, we built halves, and had them mounted against a mirror to give the illusion of a complete model. 

The professor teaching the class always said the class was like a gym membership, you can come and exercise as much as you want, however much or however little you have the urge to, and seeing the course already in hindsight, even with the amount of work I put into it, I'm sad to see it already behind me.

Enjoy! :D

P.S. If there's any one of the themes you wish to see more of, just ask! I'll upload extra images as quick as I can!

Currently enrolled at the College for Creative studies, and I consider myself a die-hard sketchup artist who can't do it often as I'd like because I'm too busy doing schoolwork.

Seeya!
