ABOUT Juergen RAU:

Juergen Rau (Austrian Jürgen Rau) is a generalist concept art designer focusing on strong 2D and 3D shape designs -  cars, yachts, sci fi vehicles, mechs, spaceships, buildings, fantasy creature shapes and so on. This supreme design language stages all customer-projects up to the best look ever possible. The full overall general knowledge is shown on the concept works page (including such topics as fantasy, character, props and interior). See the designer's portfolio works page (main expertise), the page concept art and abstract art to find out that makes the designer unique.  Feel free to make a contact for availability and rates.

 

This website was founded in 2008, years after Jürgen Rau began working on concept designs in industry companies, such as in the Predevelopment Concept Division (originally called in those days "Vorentwicklung Konzepte") of the car company MAGNA Steyr. The designer worked on designing industrial and mobile robots, conventional and unconventional flying aircrafts, speedboats, trains,  renewable energy machinery etc. - most of these project works are still classified as top secret. A small amount of the designer's concept works can be shown on this website (and could be also found in other design pages). In February 1997 during an international competition carried out in Vienna, the designer won the 1st price in the category "Digital Art".

Audio Technica ATH-M50X head phones => perhaps the best headphone on the market - if you use it with a good sound card on your PC/device, than it is as if you hear music the first time ever. It is very important to play loud music through the headphones for 1-3 days strait to make their sound membranes become flexible. Do this before using them and reduce the noise by putting them into a closed shelf. Only after this procedure, the sound becomes crisp and simply incredible.

Asus Xonar DX intern PCIe/PCI sound card 7.1 => The sound card that is much better than the on-board soundcard of a PC. With this card, you hear more details within the playing music song.
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND-1, ENGLAND-2, CANADA-1, CANADA-2, GERMANY-1, GERMANY-2, SPAIN-1, SPAIN-2, FRANCE-1, FRANCE-2, ITALY-1, ITALY-2).

Samsung intern SSD 1TB PC drive => If your PC has a SATA-3 (sata III) connection, than having your OS (Windows, MAC-OS, Linux etc.) on this SSD drive will normally really boost your PC so that you can work, play or design much faster.

Nikon D5300 Digital SLR photo camera => A good but not professional photo camera to shoot good photos. Professional cameras cost many times more - this camera is a good compromise. But careful: the new 140mm lens objective seems to have dark view spots - try to take the 105 lens to have no risk.

Lenovo ThinkPad YOGA Convertible i7 SSD drawing laptop => a tablet laptop PC with a touchscreen there you can draw/design on the monitor with a digital pen. The internal Sata SSD drive can be replaced later if needed (voltage 230V, maybe different). A "PL-900 Pen" (not included) makes the product pressure sensitive. This technology is a dream solution for digital artists.  P.S. Product not fully tested by the concept artist.
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND, GERMANY, SPAIN, FRANCE-1, FRANCE-2, ITALY-1, ITALY-2, ITALY-3).

Wacom PL-900 penabled pen => A pressure sensitive pen for Lenovo ThnikPad Yoga (requires driver installation).
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND, GERMANY, SPAIN, FRANCE, ITALY).

Wacom Cintiq 24HD, 24HD touch monitors => A massive drawing monitor. Maybe too heavy and large. The fan inside is also a bit loud. The good thing is though that is is very stable, enables a natural drawing hand position like on paper, has a huge drawing surface to make the drawing good for the wrist. The touch version has also AdobeRGB (caution: not in 100% brightness mode), but has also more RGB colors and higher brightness possible. Hearing music helps if the fan seems too loud.
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND-1, ENGLAND-2, CANADA, GERMANY-1, GERMANY-2, SPAIN-1, SPAIN-2, FRANCE-1, FRANCE-2, ITALY-1, ITALY-2).

Wacom Cintiq 22HD and 22HD touch monitors  => A good compromise for the designer. Not as heavy as the 24HD. However, the best is that you have more place for the keyboard near you. P.S. Product not fully tested by the concept artist. P.S. Product not fully tested by the concept artist.

Wacom Cintiq 27QHD and 27QHD touch monitor => A very interesting product because of the QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and 97% RGB colors. A great product but It is heavy. Not so good is that you still do not have much room for a keyboard near you. P.S. Product not fully tested by the concept artist.

Spyder4Elite calibration device -> a PC monitor calibration tool for the PC monitor to show the images in wright colors. If your monitor was not calibrated, then you are not viewing the images with the intended colors. For example, a white image could look blue or yellow.
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND, CANADA, GERMANY, SPAIN, FRANCE, ITALY).

Revoltec RE122 Fightmouse Elite PC mouse => A futuristic looking mouse that works perfect for years. The mouse can use weights inside and glows in different colors. Rarely the mouse requires a few seconds of simple cleaning of the laser hole (for example if you have a hairy cat in your house).
(product LINKS IN ENGLAND, CANADA, GERMANY, SPAIN, FRANCE, ITALY).

Artbook Prometheus The Art of the Film => A nice art book with a great cover (in artists opinion).
