Hoverbike Final Concept by ZackF Hoverbike Final Concept by ZackF
This is a mixed 2D/3D work where I took a snapshot of my 3D model and started drawing on top of it in Photoshop to detail and tweak the design. Sorry for the bland presentation, as this is more of a step in the process of finishing the 3D model than a showcase concept in itself.

Criticism is very welcome. :)

edit: Oops! I forgot there was a category specifically for concept art. Thanks DA!

Fantastic bike. Love the wings on the back.

I made my own hoverbike for a superhero movie I am trying to make. Check out the test video here:

It's my most popular video, but also the most disliked. Guess people are upset it isn't real.

I like it, im starting a concept bike of my own. Runs on a magnetic field and has wings that fold down into the sides so it can fly to certain altitudes as well.
All in all though a very good model and concept.

I love the way you detail you models.. what kind of tecnic do you use? Polymodel or textures for it?

Thanks man! For this particular image, what I did is take a screenshot of a 3D model and draw on top of it in Photoshop. The final 3D asset would use modeling to represent all the details, but it's easier to improvise designs by drawing than by modeling sometimes, so doing a "paintover" like this can be very helpful during the process.

Very cool! Something makes me think were it real you would be able to get a wheeled/semi-wheeled version or attachments for urban 'flight restricted' areas.
Anyway, very very cool :D My only criticism would have to be: what stops your knees getting burnt/blown off?

What stops your knees getting burnt to a crisp? Science!

The wheeled version idea is very cool, I like that. Already that gets the gears spinning in my head about some fictional world for this to be a common, or even outdated, vehicle. Thanks for the cool comment. :)

It's going on the shelf for a bit, I got a bit burned out working on it. I'll definitely get around to finishing it eventually though.

Looks able to be rode. Did you use any motorcycles for reference or anything like that?
Reply
:iconzackf:
ZackF Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Quite a few! There are about 7 real bikes I have as general references so far, as well as 11 references of just engines. At one point I also posed a standard skeleton over the bike to get a solid sense of human proportions. I'm very glad it comes across as plausible.

Thanks! Yep, I'm planning to bake the detail down to a sub-8,500 triangle mesh once I finish making the high resolution version.
