Weekly Drills Weekly Drills 033 - #BikeHelmet by Andrew McDonald 15 days ago 3 min read This week we want you to create a bike helmet. Ideally you should be able to use it as a prop in a game, film, digital render, or even as a drawing for your portfolio. Then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #BikeHelmet.Bike helmets are incredible examples of engineering designed to protect our noggins. Once you take a closer look you begin to realise how impressive these really are and how much detail and complexity is behind their designs. This week I want to challenge you to find a helmet and build it. I want you to pay close attention to the compound curves and the different materials used. If you have time, add some stickers or rough up the appearance of the helmet with your surfacing layers.To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack.
