Buggy Series is one of my bigger personal projects. I started work on it in January 2008. It was shortly after I'd seen the Mad Max trilogy, again. I love those fallout vehicles in the movie and I remember I loved them when I was just a kid, so I decided to make at least my own one. I spent parts of my free time on it - about two to three weeks over 4 months.
Well, let's be honest and say that there is no big, deep point in just the creation of a heavy, high-detailed buggy in a desert environment. I didn't want to end up this project just like a car on the plane though, so I tried to push myself a bit and made it a little more interesting. I decided to build up several different environments to make this project some kind of skills presentation for fancy car renderings, but using an old, rusty, mad fallout buggy.
I started with the desert environment, then I played with forest river, then the snowfield, and the rocky field with the shipwreck was the last one. Final renders are 6.000 pixels wide and my plan is to print them out on A2 and put them on the wall in my son's room when he grows up a little. So it is also kind of a present for my 10-month old son, Adam. If you like just one of them, it's my pleasure!
