I detailed out the rough shapes I created with the Line tool using the Edit Poly option (Fig.04 - Fig.05). I then used the FFD modifier to achieve the desired bulges and curves.

After this stage I started building a library of parts and other important elements that helped to hold together the major elements of the bike. Rebuilding the bike helped with the scale and proportions (Fig.06 - 08).

I then started setting up the lights. I used a direct top-down light and a sky light to enhance the overall muscles of the Razper. I always think it's better to avoid long shadows for bikes and cars (Fig.09). I rendered the image it for 3000 res and this was the end of the first day's work.

I always take time to think about my designs because I personally feel we need some time to scan our design, reflect upon it and find mistakes that need to be fixed.
