Well first of all welcome back to my blog if you haven’t been here in a while. Time to start posting stuff again. If it is your first time welcome and please browse around.  I offer several free tutorial videos and prints, books and t-shirts in the store.

I was honored to get to teach at the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena recently for the vehicle design class taught by John Frye. I showed a few of my techniques in Photoshop, Painter and talked about working in the design industry. I do really enjoy teaching and I think I learn a lot myself when I do that. This concept is based on a series of flying motorcycles I had been drawing in my sketchbook. Then I used a robot to pilot the cycle because I have been doing an Instagram challenge another artist had set. His name is Dacosta Bayley and he is promoting his book called March of Robots on kickstarter. So I thought why not I love robots too, you can flip through my Instagram @dwaynevance account and see all the robots I have been drawing. So I thought I would share my new image and get my blog fired back up. Go through the gallery section of this post and you will see all my thumbnail sketches and several steps leading up to the final piece.  Thanks for stopping by.
