The Great Sketch Swap of 2017

  • "Got two swap ships that looked like they belong in the same this one is going to be a lot of fun to render up. Big thanks to Dwayne Vance for the slingshot dragster inspired space rod clanging stabilizers with Pete Norris's radical spaceship with some brilliant surfacing ideas." -JF
  • "This ship comes from the distinctive style of Vaughan Ling, who traded with me last year (see the Great Sketch Swap of 2016) Pete Norris has taken Vaughan's line drawing and added rich volume and amazing depth with his color and rendering. Love the collaboration in the engine design and exectution, just look at those pipes!" -JF
  • "Pete Norris caught my attention back in 2015 through his spectacular Honda motocycle design in 3D, featured here on Behance. Pete gets this tidy future rod with questionable ingress/egress and sketchy high speed stability."   -JF
  • "Love the color and finish on this one. Really neat with these swaps to see how someone else interprets the finish of a design. I love this graphically more that what I had imagined! Lines: Frye Color: Norris. Check out Pete's work on Behance, especially the Honda chopper!" -JF
  • "This sketchswap design comes from Del Swanson, who gave me a couple of designs to choose from, and this one piqued my interest because of the mysterious asymmetrical design and big 'D' shape, which my sources indicated is alien anti-grav tech which found its way into this experimental 1950s U.S. Air Force flier. I'm really enjoying doing these, as when I render them up, I'm studying the surfacing and detailing that is unique to each designer. Del definitely has some lines on this that might just relate to some 1950s GM Autorama cars." -JF
  • "And the next two, my lines with Del's color. He's added some drama with a police drone chase and finished the chrome color combo just right!" -JF

  • "Thanks to the magical mystery of lost inboxes, I discovered that Michal Kus requested a sketchswap like half a year ago! So we're getting it going's my linework for Michal do make into a brilliant color rendition!"  -JF
