I would like to introduce you recent Project called "The race day", it's based on Gary's Tonge concept art,
The main aim was to achieve a steampunk look, focusing at Leonardo Da Vinci in gathering references gave amazing results for me. I designed basic engines, some wings made from wood and skin, power supply and automatic mail box based on the right side of the scene.
I used 3dsMax with Vray rendering engine, also Mudbox and Zbrush gave me a lot opportunity to work on details. For the post processig I chose Looks for AfterEffects, creating soft Chrommatic Abberation and add little smoke in Photoshop.
