    Topic: Demolition Derby Car

    Background: With DEEP already a week behind us, it is time to return to normality again. I thought it would be nice to blow off some steam with a destructive topic.

    For those who don't know what a Demolition Derby is: It is a 'fight' in an arena between a number of modified old cars, last on still driving wins. It's that simple

    The cars are often radically modified, not only to keep the drivers save in all the chaos and mayhem of the game but also to stand out amongst the crowd. Pink, bright yellow, fluorescent green, huge exhausts..go wild. Most are old cars modified to fit, but you might also opt for a completely new build one from scratch if you like. Mind though, Monster Trucks are a different class and will not count as a Derby car.

    There is a league specially for schoolbuses though...

    One more thing: to make it a bit more interesting I want you to come up with two drawings for the car. One is an image of the car before the game, the other is the image from after the game, when it is beat up and barely -if at all- driveable.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a Demolition Derby Car!
    2. Show both the before and after states of the car
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Wednesday July 16

    There's much more to find on Youtube and other sites (as well as a couple of games). Time to get dirty!

    Hmm, so does it have to be car shaped? Or can it be highly modified and 'beasty' looking?

    I didn't go too crazy on it. I suck at drawing cars in general, and this took a while...

    Might get a chance to finish with the crushed version tomorrow.

    Saturns Gate: hm there is some room for playing around with this topic, but I'd advise to keep it so it could actually compete in a real race without sticking out like a sore thumb (like..adding cannons and stuff ).

    updated mine!

    Xezor1324- i really like old paper texture background, and the car feels a little boxy but overall i like it. it feels kinda like a toy though...

    prepsage- love th colors, your peice had a old poster feel to it. nice...the damaged version would have been neat to

    jread- i like it, i think that it could have used more damage...but i like some of the little details like the red dripping down the wheel and the scrapping effect down the side.
