The Art of SketchUp - part 2: Sci-Fi

Re: The Art of sketchup - part 2: Sci-Fi

Postby ken28875 » Wed Jun 22, 2011 8:23 am

Hi guys,

It's nice to be back. I apologize for the lack of updates the past half year. Things have been quite hectic.

My grandfather passed away a few months ago. I spent a few days in Los Angeles with my family to attend the funeral.

Back to San Francisco, I was really busy finishing the game Rift that was shipped on March. You can check out the website here if you're into MMO: http://www.riftgame.com/en/. So the NDA was lifted and I now can share some of my concepts/Sketchup models that I did the past 3.5 years. You can see them in the Fantasy thread: http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=27028

I also worked on some sci-fi stuff for Trion's Defiance MMO: http://www.defiance.com/en/. However, since the game is not out yet, I cannot show you my Sketchup models due to NDA.

But here are some personal projects.

As usual, modeling was done in Sketchup; texturing inside Sketchup and done in Photoshop; rendering with VRay for Sketchup; postworks in Photoshop.

Thanks for viewing and have a terrific day,

_KN

For those of you who read my other thread (The Art of sketchup - part 1: Fantasy), you probably have seen the interview I had with Nomer.
http://sketchupvrayresources.blogspot.com/2012/05/q-and-with-our-featured-artist-ken.html

There were a few images that were not posted anywhere else, but exclusively for this interview, like the ones below.







Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week!

Hi there,

I just dug out a few 3d concepts I did for a sci-fi game a few years ago. I cannot name the name of the game yet.

These are some kind of alien devices. Modeled in Sketchup and rendered with Vray.




I will post some more soon.

Have a great day! :enlight:

Hi Everyone,

So as I have mentioned before, my contract with EA/Maxis working on Simcity 5 has ended last November. Unfortunately, I cannot post anything yet.

Not having job is not so fun as I still have to pay bills and support my family. On the other hand, I can do what I want. I finally have some free time to work on personal projects different from what I would do for work. I did a bunch of vehicles (sci-fi and realistic contemporary/ Tanks, boats, airplanes, etc.).

Keep watching for this thread as I will add some of more my recent concepts.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! :enlight:

Best,

_KN

Here's another personal project, less sci-fi, more contemporary and realistic.

Best,

Here's a combat droid. I did some before but they were smaller and less detailed. I really had fun working on this one. I will try to do some more when I have time.

Have a great day!

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend.

Here are some older renders I did using one of the droids I posted in this thread a while ago.

Sketchup + Lumion3D + Photoshop.

Have a great week!

Well that doesn't look like anything I've seen done in Lumion as yet! It's so pretty for scene of destruction! Thanks for posting Ken. I think we may be benefiting to see works from your free time. I hope you get hooked up soon though, if not already.

>> Hi Peter,

Thanks for you kind words.

Yeah, it's nice to have free time to work on personal stuff. However, I still need to pay the bills and support the family.

I had a couple of interviews with some game companies, but they decided to pursue other candidates. A recruiter, friend of mine who worked in the same company some years ago, just emailed me today. He actually has a job opening that he want to talk to me about. We'll see how things go.

Have a great day!
