List of youtube channels that also helped and inspired me:
FZDSCHOOL - More or less one of the most known concept art-related resources I know on youtube. It’s great to sit and draw and just listen to the talking.
SinixDesign- This guy is also great! He has some design workshops ever now and then where the viewers can send in their stuff for critique! very encouraging and inspiring!
moatddtutorials- This guy is more into drawing than painting, and has a more cartoony style. He has interesting methods when it comes to perspective. And he also challenge himself in some of his videos (the engine block video is a great example of this)
foxOrian- Also known here on dA for his awesome perspective and composition tutorials. He has a youtube channel where he posts some videos that might be interesting as well.
For over 50 years Pyestock was at the forefront of gas turbine development. It was probably the largest site of its kind in the world. V bomber, Harrier and Tornado engines were tested on site, and the power of the air house allowed Concorde’s engines to be tested at 2,000 mph. Every gas turbine installed in Royal Navy ships was checked here; captured Soviet engines were discreetly examined.
Cell 4 was an integral part of the massive supersonic-testing expansion of Pyestock, as the need to test engines in close association with their air intake systems was an urgent requirement for this new generation of aircraft. The cell was constructed in 1975 for £6.5m.
Shortly after its construction, the cell was modified to enable it to fly the Rolls-Royce Olympus 593 which was being developed for Concorde. The cell’s abilities were enhanced to be able to fly at Concorde’s cruise parameters of Mach 2 at 61,000 feet.
However with the decline of supersonic projects and its specialised, power-hungry needs, Cell 4 was soon surplus to requirements and was mothballed in the 1980s.
Hey all! So one of the groups I’m fortunate enough to get the opportunity to work with, Mojo Game Studios, has launched their site! There are a lot of awesome and talented artists and friends working on this project, and it would mean a lot to me if you dropped by and checked it out.
Hit the photo for the linkage! And make sure to drop by later for more updates!
