New BRUTE!/BMW Racing Helmet

James helmet James helmet3 James helmet2

New photos in from my mate on the BMW racing team showing the new BRUTE! design. Very bright and bold and a real bitch to do, apparently. Thanks to James Clay from Bimmerworld for the photos and kudos to Mike Savage at Savage Designs for the PJ.

More BRUTE! Helmet roughs

More rough helmet designs for Bimmerworld racing team.

I first built a basic helmet shape in 3D (Poser 4) and then textured them with the artwork, taking snaps of the front, back, sides and top plus a three-quarter profile. Finally, in Photoshop, I cut and pasted them over the helmet line-art and photos supplied by the company.

Keep posted to see the final design evolve.

BRUTE! Crash Helmet Designs!

One of the cool things about my job is the opportunities it throws up to make you see the work in a new light.

I was recently asked to do a series of helmet designs for a racing team and was intrigued by the way the shape of the helmet dictated the dynamics of the art.
Shortly after sending in these roughs, I began to build and texture the helmet in 3D, the results I will post later.
