In this bonus episode of his first VRED series, DGDesign’s Senior Designer Mike Turner walks through how he created a “retro wave” aesthetic to show off a performance-ready DeLorean model. (Mike’s already talked us through getting into VRED for bespoke automotive design, importing data from Alias, working with backplates and other rendering approaches.)

Mike starts with some research on other DeLorean renderings, which all share a futuristic, racey, garishly-lit (ah, the ’80s!) look. He picks up on the geometric background and color palette to create a new way of showing off this iconic vehicle.

Yes, there will be more! We’ll have a second series of skill-building videos from Mike Turner over the coming months.
