Car Design Concept Sketches 02 by Popgrafix Car Design Concept Sketches 02 by Popgrafix
And again for something COMPLETELY different...
When I was just a little boy... :blahblah: ...I dreamt of becoming a car designer. So after high school (voortgezet onderwijs in het Nederlands...) I went to the Delft University of Technology to study Industrial Design Engineering and become an automotive engineer! Wow, how's that for a boy's dream? :psychotic:
Well aniways, when i was in my second year I got the opportunity to participate in a Car Design Workshop. We were learning all kinds technical stuff, methods for creative problem solving and of course how to draw cars. We worked our asses of for two weeks and were busy with cars for about 14 hours a day...
That was a total overdose for me. I hardly ever drew a car after that, lost my motivation for my academic carreer and ended up where all academic outcasts ended up inthose days: the internet business

But anyways, it resulted in some nice pictures of car designs. I will post the best in my regular gallery, the rest goes in scraps. O, and these are from 1992, when there was no Photoshop or 3D max or whatever; these are old school marker illustrations!

Materials:
Bleed proof marker paper (Schoelershammer), markers (Letraset Pantone), pastel chalks (Conté), color pencils (Derwent Studio) and white gouache (Talens)

If i show you a concept, can you "polish" it and make it look cool ?

Of course I can! But I won't. I'm to busy. Sorry.

looks like your own iteration of what the 1989 Pontiac Stinger looked like when it's sketches were released 3 years before yours.

I noticed something. You made it like you suck at coloring if you look hard, but if you look at it in general, it's like you spent 3hours on it.

Talk about overdose i think that would turn anybody off, but it's a shame because this is very good i saw alot of car designs like this recently at the motor show here they had a competition for students to submit cars they designed in artwork or sculpture was pretty interesting. Cars are hard to draw i find you have to think alot before you draw it doesn't come out as natural because you have to think alot where every line goes and use maths and measurements to make it turn out right so it can be frustrating >_< What are the rims? :P 20's? haha

Thanks for the compliments. It is tricky to draw cars well indeed. But as with everything... practice makes perfect!

wow!!! thats sweet looking.
but for some reason i feel like the curve would fuck things up. haha. youd be facing the ground moreso than way ahead of you...
so in order to look ahead of you, youd have to tilt your neck up.
all of a sudden, people would be getting neck cramps ;)
hahaha
or maaaaaaaaybe its just im overthinking this and TRYING to find a problem with it
because its just so damn fucking cool

No, you're very right. This one's for the looks only, not for practical use.

Well, for starters: it's about twenty centimeters long, made of paper and entirely flat...
