final pin up for assessment

Some of my best work from different projects for the first year of uni that i had to pin up for assessment.

What do you think guys?


just a close up of some sketches.






new photoshop render in 1hour and a half

im getting quicker at photoshop, just a quick simple photoshop render of a concept i knocked out. what do you think guys?

mr2 side concept

2 more on the way

962 concept (engine research)

i’m think of using either a flat 6 twin or single turbo, OR a flat 4 single or twin turbo for the concept. been doing a bit of research and maths, power out put and stuff, here are the pictures. here are different types of single/twin turbo layout i have found especially v shaped engine.

1104 Audi R18 INA Engineering 109

i found this layout of a flat 4 placed in a chassis done up a CAD, i love this idea because its the same layout i want to use on my concept design.


other 120* degrees engine with a single turbo used on the audi r18 race car


great example is the subaru style flat 4 engine, they tend to use single turbo instead of 2 like they did in the past.


my theory is that with the flat 4 engine, a single mid sized turbo would work better than 2 turbo because 1:less turbo lag 2:amount of piston. down side is that the manifolds would have to be crazy, i think it will be easier to have a flat 6 twin turbo then a flat 6 single. its just crazy stuff and blowing my mind but i love it and find it very interesting, reason why im looking really deep into the engine for my design is because hopefully im going to draw in in my concept with the engine hood opened, and the glass view inside.

im really liking the flat  4 engine with small twin turbos on each end of the car OR a single  flat/V120* 6 single turbo for my concept, still hard tho, im so confused,

any help guys found be great

new porsche flat 4?

found this page on the new flat 4 porsche engine that could go ahead, this could be great for my project because its smaller than the flat 6 meaning its lighter and the body can be shorter. they say it will feature direct injection, one turbocharger and a 7,500 rpm red line. According to internet speculation, it is expected to make around 350 hp at its highest state of tune. hmm how about two different sized turbo chargers just like the flat 6 turbo or could it be like a Subaru flat 4?

full report is on


962 info

just a bit more information and research for my project


thinking of the next project? (porsche 962 2014 concept)

one of my favorite racing car, the 962 porsche that dominated the group c era. there are road going versions of the 962 an 956 in the world, its beautiful with its  slick steam line design, and beats most top hyper cars of today. with a flat 6 single or double turbo charged engine, and a to speed reaching easily well over 230mph, for me it is defo in a class in its league.




i’m going to design a concept of the 962 if i have time, using as mush information i can find on the car from the clever diffuser to the interior, hard job eh but it will be fun.




mustang front final

mustang front 3/4 concept (process) part 2

here is part 2 of the process of my mustang PS, hope its useful to you guys.

time for the wheels, again with the sketch design you already have, just start blocking in the rims then sketch accurately the rims. again if you need to use a underlay please do so because if the wheels are wrong, then forget. try go for the simplest design for the wheels. after add the tyre  and also the light catcher  tone on the tyre. apply any tyre tread, go for a simple design, i used the circles highlighted in blue. copy and paste the wheel then emboss to the right size, (this is to save time) instead you draw the rear if you wish.

mustang front process 6

just add the shadow lines on the bottom of the car, remember to mark carefully where the light is not hitting that produces the shadow


mustang front process 9

for the final touches i went simple for the shin affect on the windows, added the stripes and a quick background with the heading, don’t forget to sign your work, thanksmustang front final
