Working on a new car drawing after almost 2 years of no car drawings :wow: :la: Feels so great to hold a pencil again and doing a car drawing^^
Handheld mini drill/grinder 3D model by Laggtastic
Handheld mini drill/grinder 3D model
Renders of the 3D model I made as continuation of the marker drawing I did earlier. So first I disassembled everything as far as I could, followed by measuring the stuff and produce 3D models of them. Pretty fun stuff to do, hope ya like it^^

Handheld mini drill/grinder marker drawing
A drawing that I made based on a milling machine (handheld) that we got here @ home :) Was a good way to try doing some perspective drawing again, and practice rendering with markers as I'm new to this kind of artworks. Left you see the early sketch, to the right you see the final rendering :)
Desklight 3D model and animation by Laggtastic
Desklight 3D model and animation
This is a 3D model which I made of a little "simple" desklight I got on my desk.
I decided to model it and do an animation to assemble the parts it contains, and tried to model it as it is.
This allowed me to change parts to transparent elements to see how everything is connected, such as screws etc.

Here's a youtube link containing the little (LOWRES) animation, my system is not powerfull so that's why I made it lowres, as I have to move on with the next project without performance trouble because some other render is taking day after day... ;)

Hi everyone, lately I've been creating 3D models & animations based on Lego Technic to try some stuff with animation & simple rigs in 3Ds-Max. These short animations show a little bit of what I've been doing I guess :)

Note; I didn't include the Lego logo's and kept the forms simple and basic as the Lego (company) is the owner of the right to add the logo's (and certain details). For me, it was more importantly to play with the animations and rigs instead of 100% focus on ultra realistic copies of the parts.

Hey, I'm Maikel, better known as Laggtastic here.

Also, I'm the boyfriend of the sweetest girl I've ever met; :iconshelby-3000: We found eachother on this site after I uploaded an artwork, and the rest followed with result that we have a relationship now!:la:

Feel free to check her art, she is a car artist just like me but also makes some more various art aswell, sure to check her art aswell if you read this, you won't regret :D

14-02-2014 was the day we met in real life...and 2 days later my life turned upside down, inside out, and all of that in the positive way <3
Sheraine...You're the luvv of my life dear:tighthug:

Oh yea...back to me:P I'm currently 23 years old, living in Valkenswaard, The Netherlands.

I follow the education to become a game artist at the moment, which I started a year ago. Got 2 years remaining, hope to learn some cool stuff, on the field of 2D & 3D art.

When I don't work for school, I like to draw. Lately most of it are sketches and idea's for fictive game projects I work on. But during the holidays, when I got some more time, I like to draw cars aswell, as you might notice in my gallery:)

I work both traditional as digital, because I like to do both:) For traditional I use graphite pencils and Faber Castell Polychromos colorpencils.

For digital I use a mouse for 3D modeling, and a Wacom Bamboo (old one) for 2D art and 3D sculpting:)

However enough about me, have a look in my gallery to see what I make these days:) Enjoy and feel free to comment:)
Interests let me start with a little intro here=)

I've been...50/50 active since the moment my exam-stuff started for college, I am graduated as Game Artist now but I am still busy to work on my portfolio to get a job before I can actually go through all the messages and continue my actual projects that I have in mind for a long time. So yea, first my apologies that I reply late, or haven't commented or faved your works yet. I have over 1000 messages so they are still around there but I first have to work my ass off and get a job before I go sit back and go through everything...

Secondly, all these milestones are reached because of some effort of myself, but more importantly, thanks to you watchers and people passing by to check my gallery. Through these 6 years of being a Deviant, artist or whatever you like to call me, I've met a a lot of great, talented and funny people. I mean...I even met my girlfriend here thanks to Deviantart, something different than meeting each other in a night club right?=D So I'd like to thank you all for your interest in the stuff I do!:la:

So, no comes the part of the title; It appeared to be that I reached over 50k of pageviews...which is...what can I say? Wicked, epic, fantastic, awesome, insane, OMG and WTF as I didn't expect this at all that I would have reached it now already!:wow:

In addition to that, it seems my Assasins Creed drawing;
Assasins Creed drawing_FINISHED by Laggtastic
Has reached over 6k views, followed by the Celica drawing with 5,8k views which is like...:wow: Wow...that's insane XD
So yea thank ya all, I hope to do some traditional drawing one day again after I got a job; And yep...a half year ago I started a new car drawing but it's on-hold until all the other stuff is done XD :D

That's it for now, so thank ya all for the awesomeness, being around and I hope that I can be back (more actively) real soon:)

Maikel, just checking in on you - the last chat you and I had was around January 2013 (two years ago) when you were asking me questions about what makes for good engineering. I took a look at your recent work and well, it's looking good. Have you adopted a given style or philosophy since our discussion?

Best Wishes,
Jonathan Bluestone

Hey Mate!
How you doing these days? Your gallery is still awesome, i can see that.

In the past couple (more than a couple) months, i've been working on a mobile game with my brother. And on this week, it became available on the iOS App Store, Google Play and Amazon. Check it out if you like. ;) 
You can find pictures in my gallery. :)

And i just pass you the links:……

We wanted to do a unique and friendly visual style. :)
I'm looking forward to your feedback on it. :) 

And have a nice day all day long. ;)
