I did many iterations of this ship until I came up with the craziest design possible. I used a nautilus for inspiration. Really tried to push reality with this one! Rendering it was actually the fun and easy part.
I did this for Viscom 3. My left brain is having a fit with the physics of this, but my right brain is having a ball with the weird and crazy shapes.
These hovercraft designs were drawn and rendered entirely freehand in Photoshop, starting as flat silhouettes and then refined to their final form.
