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?
November 19th, 2006 #21

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.
November 19th, 2006 #23
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.
November 19th, 2006 #24
how do you post uour entry
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.
November 19th, 2006 #25

Devere's Super hero vehicle
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.
