A great trick to make concept art engine more fascinating, is to give them a “soul”.
How ? By giving them hands, eyes, head, skeleton, anything related to human or animals, your engine won’t be just a robot anymore. You give “him” the ability to think, and being able of self decision of movement.
Yesterday I did some mini sketches to provoke multiple ideas. Today, I draw bigger. I want to explore more on how to draw the small and intricate details of the machine such as the joints and “skeleton”. I challenge my observation skill and memory of form.
I believe that, if I could have a good library of mechanical forms in my mind, it will help me a lot at transforming almost any simple shape into a cool concept art engine. I am not yet convinced about it, but I want to test this theory.
Hope this trick will give you inspiration for your own Concept art engines.
