Our Gallery: The Fantastic Art of 600v

09 Feb

“One of the most beloved artists in the world of dieselpunk” – wrote Tome Wilson about a Russian guy who calls himself 600v on DeviantArt or ixlrlxi in his LiveJournal. We can add that he was also one of the first artists to tag his works as ‘Dieselpunk’.
A short excerpt from his interview published on Dieselpunks.org (2009): “I love the solid feel, reliability and natural sleekness of cars and devices from the 50s. Obviously nobody tried to save on rough stuff, and the beauty of the object was much more important over its functionality. Today’s things are functional, but they suffer from dystrophy, economy standards and overall design simplicity killed the beauty. “
And a few lines (from the same interview) about 600v’s creative process: “Speaking of 3D, first I build the image in my mind. I put the earphones on, close my eyes and imagine the basics of a future object. Sometimes I wave my hands in the process, like a Chinese Wushu master. It must look very funny. When the framework is registered in my memory I take a pencil and draw some basic lines – though this step can be easily omitted. The next step is work with polygons. My conventional drawing until last year looked just by the book – A4 sheet, a pencil and an eraser. When the concept takes visual shape, I scan the picture and colorize it with the Painter program. “
600v’s manner is unique, every object combining familiar real-world features with sheer imagination. You see it once and you’ll never forget it, no matter if the object is a zombie car, a sci-fi hovercraft or a streamline kitchen device.
Five years of work, admired by dieselpunks all over the world. Thirty-two images, published by the author’s kind permission. You can see much more on DeviantArt.
