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.
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
Here's some inspiration:
There's much more to find on Youtube and other sites (as well as a couple of games). Time to get dirty!
Nice one HFix. I hope you get to finish it.
Ok, here is my final:

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.

and without decals incase anyone was interested...
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.
Ok first time doing this.
Still not finshed but it all I got time for.
And I hate drawing cars.
@Hfix - thanks I was gonna add more damage, thats exactly what my GF said! but i thought that in a real race a black cab would kick ass coz they are so heavy duty!
Warbait - nice work man! Im not keen on drawing vehicles too...thats why its good to practice!
final burning going up soon Yoitisi?
this was more fun than i thought it would be...i just did it for practice but ended up having lots of fun! dont usually do this stuff so will definitely do more
Jread: Hm I am not yet used to that system it seems . I'll do it the old fashioned way this time.
This round is closed now, poll will be up in a minute.
Edit: Poll is up, please go there and vote: IDW #71: Demolition Derby Car - Voting
