If i get to it, ill draw something. Really interesting topic
Flip: no links or sketches in your post :/
Sweet!!!! my day has finally come, two days off work and this to keep me busy, thanks flip, you just made my day, this is going to be fun,
Is it means I must draw front view, left and top? Or just left will be fine?Originally Posted by Flip
If it's a bike you could get away with just a side view, because there's little the top or front view would show. At least 2 views would be nice - the idea being that someone should have all the information they need to model the vehicle. A top, front, back & side would be great, but side & top should be enough in most cases.Originally Posted by Sali
Nice... Thanks a lot!
As I understand after this IDW there'll be a 3D challenge or something like that? Is 3DS Max ok for this "next" challenge..? Just asking...
Em... for some reason I can't post my wip... Why? I have "You may not post attachments" in this thread.
As Final as I think im going to get it....Might post another if I get some time tommorow to work on it.

Yeah 3DS Max is fine, go check out the previous/current 3d challenges: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=78749Originally Posted by Sali
Yeah, it's not available in the activities forums, you'll have to use something like photobucket or imageshack.Originally Posted by Sali

Act.Appalled - I do not think that I am the best to give artistic critique but from a technical point-of-view you might want to consider:
*Checking the base line of the design - helpful when producing the other plan and body views.
*Make sure that technical details (engine etc) are clear as this will help modelling
*Increase the contrast between the bike and the background so the profile is more distinct
*Add a proportional person to check the ergonomics of the design - this need not show in the final version - this is especially helpful for small devices such as bikes
Believed to be developed from a highly modified Horton Ho 231 this prototype airframe was recovered from a research facility in the South German forests by Allied Special Forces in 1945.
Initial classification of the craft proved difficult and Air Force handed the vessel over to the B.P.R.D special organisation for study. Investigation into the vessel showed that the airframe served mainly as a support function to supplement unknown powers of levitation created by the stone at the centre of the vessel. It is believed that this stone was recovered by Axis Desert troopers in Western Egypt from an undisclosed location in the Hyrx dune-sea.
After careful trials understanding of the vessel grew and it was pronounce to be benign. In the Spring of 1951 the vessel was transfered to the B.P.R.D operations section to serve as an agent transport. Used by B.P.R.D teams on special assignment to support famous agents such as Hellboy and Liz Sherman the vessel served well. With vertical take-off and landing capabilities and a top speed greater than that of most conventional aircraft this craft is a transport without compare, able to swiftly carry a full team of agents to any location in the world.
Still in use today the vessel continues to serve well although budget constraints limit its supply of fuel. Through its service strange traits appeared in its operation, such as the fact it flies quicker North-South than East-West, the causes of which have never been satisfactorily explained.

Remember to include the name of your superhero/villain with your entry.
Sali > less is more when it comes to highlights, it would help your image if you just picked out a few highlights instead of putting them on every surface.
Final posted - decided to do a muscle car for Blade.
The 3D challenge should be starting Sunday or Monday, so try to get your entries finished by Sunday. And remember that someone should be able to model the vehicle from your image/s so try to include enough views (generally at least 2)
its finished! my first finished IDW entry!!!!!!
its all very well having a jet or a tank as your superherocar, but what happens if you want to arive in style, thus it was that the green lantern aproached a team of designers to come up with the ultimate in style and comfort, they came up with this, the lantern, a v12 brute of a car with all the refinement of a solid silver ballet dancer, what do you think?

D-Holme, PianoForte > How much longer do you need to finish them up?
Sogbad > Are we going to see an entry from you? Or are you going to put that entry back? Please...
Anyone else need a bit of time to finish it off?
Just need to get into work to host the image - next hour.
Update - finished design and blurb up.

If i knew that there'll be so much time else after a deadline....
Wanna that perspective drawed... And don't wanna draw it now.
Rule of thumb is: I'll try to post the new topic Friday or Saturday and if people need extra time (within reason) on the previous topic they can have it before I post the poll.
Besides which, the 3D challenge hasn't quite finished yet.
I just finished almost didn't since I thought you guys wouldn't give an extention and I found out late last night that it was soppose to be for saturaday anyways I worked on the design concepts for a few hours to figure out what would be the most effiecient superhero vehicle but not I don't know how to post it and the poll hasn't been added yet. but I know I'm running out of time someone help me please.
I'm still here wondering how do you post your images anyone?
ok thanks D-Holme
ok here it is my superhero/ villain vehicle design. I decided to go with a spherical shape (egg) because of its adventages as oppose to a dsign with joint surfaces. these advantages being that the egg is an aerodynamic shape that allows good airflow, made for those chases whether your trying to get the bad guy or your trying to get away. it also allows for even distribution of force throughout the entire structure since you can't afford to have your vehicle breaking on you in those harsh battles and chases when projectiles ae flying at you from everywhere. lastly the tank track so the vehicle is pretty much set for all terain,Superheroes/vilains of today aren't always in the city to they need a vehicle that can be brought to anylocation and driven over any surface. Note the holes and the vents there to allow heat to escape as with a heavy vehicle ad most of the engine inside it will tend to get hot, haven't drawn them in put there is a gps system on the inside and an lcd that transmits images to the driver, also used for night vision etc. that's all folks. keep the crits coming. thanks.
See link below contains image not sure how to insert it anyotherway sorry about that

Devere > I edited your post to fix it. You need to copy the address of the image in between the [ img ] tags. You'd copied the page addresses, next time just right click on the image and select properties, in there should be listed the address/location/url.
finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i finally made an IDW!
