    Smile Vehicle design

    Here is one of the previous assignment that I did when I studied in college, hope u all like it.

    In concept design class, my lecturer showed a lot of references from The Art of Star Wars ( Episode I ) and briefed us using the same technic to design a futuristic vehicle. He also noted that the vehicle is an army transpotation and it looks huge.

    Vehicle design

    I came out with the first design (1) before end of the class. Of course lecturer didn't accepted but he liked the idea from the sea turtle, he asked me go home and develop another new version base on the same idea.

    I try to find some images about sea turtle as my references and I began to draw out with another three designs (2-4). I shown to the lecturer In the critic section, but he rejected again and asked me keep on to develop based on the design (4). He suggested me that I should need more study from the references of The Art of Star Wars ( Episode I ), especially the design from one of the famous concept artist (Doug Chiang). So I went home and keep on studied and refined.

    After came out a with the new design (5), I found out that the jet engine should changed to the aerofoil so the vechicle looked more combination, balancing and more organic. I experimented a new design (6) with two aerofoil and enlarged the overall size, the outcome looked good, then I tried to meet lecturer again for critique. Finally, he was content with my new design and allowed me to pass up in the comming lesson.

    Vehicle design

    Although lecturer was quite fond with the previous design, but I don't wanted the design of prow looked similar with the references that I rely, so I came out another design (7). I felt the vechicle size was too big and the overall looked hoariness, then I modified it (8) to be more high-tech and futuristic looked. At last, I felt satisfied with the final version and came out with some other views (8a) and details.

    Well. that's all. Comments, critiques, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Firstly, I love them all. The process is great and it was worthed. The last one came through.

    You are very dedicated, persistent and a perfectionist and you will go very far in your career. Please post more work.

    An honest critique though:
    -it's very "feng", which is great but I think there is too many followers and we're seeing a lot of that. Maybe it's a good idea to try something totally different, for originality sake. Dont get me wrong, Feng is one of the "kings" in my opinion and I've been a fan for years.

    -I assume the idea was not to make it "cartoonish" but I think the upper pair of "wings" is doing it on all of them(actually #4 and up). Personally, I would get rid of them and have just an aerodynamic surface or at least have only one in the middle.

    Still, the last version is great, it looks fast yet soundless. Could be a transport ship or a fighter.

    Great job, overall!

    what are you talking about, feng is a follower of this style, doug chiang came out doing this type of stuff before feng, syd mean before doug etc. this is a style taught by industrial designers.

    Great looking stuff. Love it.

    I like 4 a lot. And then the final two designs (7&8) are very good references to your inspiration (sea turtle). Nice concept.

    First of all; love the concepts, they're very visually attactive.

    I do have 2 gripes however.

    Like crazybrush pointed out, the enormous wings on the top seem to be there only to make the transport look more huge. Removing them would probably make more sense from a design point of view.

    Secondly, the doors, especially on design number 8 are tiny. If all the transport moves around are relatively small vehicals in relation to its own size it will probably make more sense to make a smaller transport and use 2(or more) to carry the same load this way you dont loose a lot of your military material if one of the transports gets shot down(not to mention that its size makes it an easy target).


    I hope this gave you some food for thought.

    Smile New Version

    First of all, I would like to thank to all guys for the feedbacks and comments! I'm really appreciated.

    Well, last night I seen had some free time, so I try to come out another new version base on some suggestions from this forum, especially from "Crazybrush" and " Nikos".

    Like what they mentioned, the upper pair of wings seen to be superfluos, so I took it out in my new design and retained the engine because I wanted the speed of the ship to be more powerful.Of course I've considered how the ship descended with more stable and stayed steady, so I add legs on it.

    Vehicle design

    Because this is an army conveyance, it just can convey an army group about 30-40 persons, so the exit no need too big. But, I agreed that the exit of previous design was too narrow, so I refined it a bit and came out with the a idea.

    That's all for my new version of design! I hope to get more suggestions form u all, so I still can improve more! Comments, critiques, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    wow, this last design is awesome!

    However, are you sure those legs would be strong enough to support the ship with the thrusters off? Also, what type of geography will this thing be landing on mostly? Is it rocky, mountainous all-terrain or flat, fields maybe? Perhaps the landing gear could be a little more flexible in that sense, and wider at the "feet". I'd think the back legs would snap under the weight.

    Also, does it have any weaponry of its own? Are those guns at the front? I've seen a lot of transport that either have just a few or no weapons in their design. Perhaps this ship is usually escorted by fighters or whatever, but a few extra guns (nothing too much, it's not a battleship) might help. Otherwise, even with that thick hull it could be very vulnerable in battle.

    Hope that helps. I really love the design though--do you have any others you could post?

    You will buy my book. End of topic.

    the refined design is very sreemlined- the upper intake vents are an awsome addition to it.
    i suppose the legs would only be used for docking onto a hard airstrip or bace- I would imagine it would be more of a hovering dropship or feild deploying unit.

    can't see it balancing in swampland or anything like that.
    awsome work bro-

    This last design is good. Didn't really like any of the previous ones. If it's a small transport, then adding guns will pretty much be a waste of money, I think. Does the chinook have guns?

    I second this. Seems a lot of people do follow that style and it's sorely finite. Personally, I'm not a fan of this sort of art simply because it does seem cliche.

    Smile New pose

    Well, as I promised, today I will show a new design to you all. So here is the new design that I developed on last night, hope u all like it!

    Vehicle design

    The overall shape seems similar with the previous design because I wanted to maintain the previous concept which was reminiscent of a sea turtle. I'm just trying to add on armament on it and modify the entry since I got some suggestion form this forum and some from my friends. Previously I didn't put any weapon on these vehicle because I'm thought it just a military transport shuttle and its main mission is to ferry troops, not a fighter. After pondered deeply, I agreed the vehicle should have some armament to protect itself when necessary. Because the armament is not for struggling, therefore I designed the weapon in miniature shape and it's garner when unused.

    Vehicle design

    Althought my firstly idea of this vehicle design was always hovering, but I'm also endorsed the the overall size was huge, so it need ed a landing gear when thrusters off. Infinitipo was right! I agreed that the back legs of previous design would snap under the weight, so I refined it to be more strong and flexible, hape that more make sense on it.

    That's all, comments, critiques, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. By the way I try to post another previous assignment that I did, hope u all like it too.
