Sketchup Illustration & Similar Work



I think this is done now, otherwise I will never finish as usual!


I like the striated terrain style - suits the model well.


I was playing around with a model from the 3D warehouse but things got a bit out of hand. Almost 20 hours later…
I based some of the design elements on some original sketches I have by Ron Cobb so some aspects differ from the movie version. I know it’s the wrong license plate too but ive always liked this one better than the later version.

The whole thing was drawn again in Illustrator and Photoshop with my tablet. If you are wondering about the style its based on the fantastic work of “Neon Rising” by Josan Gonzalez’s that I bought last year. You can read the first chapter for free here


Bit more work this weekend


Where did you get so long weekends? :wink:


Ahha indeed! This is probably 30 hours spread out however.


Oh, you’re in Illustrator, not Photoshop. Is the DeLorean all vectored art?


No it’s a mix of SketchUp and Photoshop. I made a sketch in Photoshop of how the character would be posed and then imported it into illustrator as a flat jpg to draw the actual character on top in Vector, then it all goes back into Photoshop.

I still have a lot to do but the idea is that it will be the intro to my website as a GIF perhaps:


Finished, it looks the same as the last post but there are many hours of touch ups and cleaning up.

Sketchup, Photoshop (and Illustrator for the character).

I have used it an an opener for my website:
