Peep here and set your eyeballs on a pretty darn good rendering designer, Mikael Lugnegard. This man who works as Lugnegard Design calls himself an artist, and with pictures so nice I'd frame em up at my abode, I'd call him one too. Today we're presenting nothing less than the "Gentleman's Racer" - an exercise in rendering that utilizes a triad of software tools that I'd bet an industrial designer like you would recognize.
This machine has the modern hotrod look. Modern vintage. It's got the look of a Volvo ÖV4. It's got the big wheels, it's got the hearse cab. Simple, clean, and it comes in two colorways. Look at those glamourous bone-colored wheels! And the shiny rims. Not for heavy-hitting mud-slinging.
And here's my favorite part (mostly because I could never even dream of owning such a radically gorgeous car) - the tools used to make it. Lugnegard notes that he use three tools: Maya, Hypershot, and Photoshop. You know which one I use most often (PS), and then we've got the Yanko pals Bunkspeed Hypershot. Yanko recently had a contest run with those peeps: it was wild fun for everyone. Check it out.
