This B&W mess was more of an experiment than anything.
These are sketches and renders for my senior thesis last year. My project was to develope a giant solar-powered cruise machine that glides across the ice of Anarctica. I wanted something fantasy based but still feasable. It is powered by sterling engines so as to not burn fossile fuels. So what I've done is showed my finalized ideas and then below that, a progression of sketches until I got what I wanted. Then I consctructed the final model out of clay. We had two 10 week quarters to work on our thesis so the sketching was 10 weeks and model making 10. Hope you like!
Since this vehicle is roughly 160 feet long (in real life), doing fifth scale was impossible. So, this model is 75th scale with it being about 55" in length and about 19" high. Dimensions changed as I got into the clay process.

Cool stuff man. the perspective is pretty solid.
That last pic though really needs more research behind. The figures are wayy to simple and some out of perspective. I would review the lighting too, cause there's wayy to much highlight. Keep in mind the hierarchy of your values, and also your light source. Also, a last thing i'dd add is alot more saturated colors.
I think this could be helpful
Keep working man !
Yea thanks dude! I I'm actually just gonna take that out and replace it because I've wanted to redo that one for a bit. I TRIED not using reference....buuuuuuut...that can bite you in the ass lol.
