Sci-Fi/Vehicular: FUTURISTIC FIRETRUCK IS TOTALLY DECKED OUT IN CHUNKY TECH
Auuuuuggh! I'm dooomed! Doomed I say..... I want self portraits, or fluffy fairies or lanscapes nextweek...you are tormenting me!!!!!!
Just kidding, I'll get out my ruler.
Alrighty I present my futuristic firetruck (complete with the xbox 1billion for the off-hours).
Its a low riding vehicle with an open hatch like a helicopter for quick boarding. The two tanks at the back are water containers which, surprisingly, hold the water that feed the water canon.
I'm really tempted to do a 3/4 backview so you can see the engines.. and yes, the perspective is all wonky cuz I did it all freehand and cheated
Drawn in flash mx, coloured in PS (1hour total).
hard surface isn't my thing, I envy the likes of Robertson and Belkar...but here is a quick sketch I managed to sneak past my boss at the day job NINJA SKETCH AWAY!!!!!!
i went over budget on time, but didn't feel like stopping!
Hehe, looks more lika a firing squad than a fire brigade, ok not really, that pun didn't come out as good as i thought it would
really cool deisgn and lighting silliKONe.
There's no fires in the future so this truck features a whipped cream tube and friendly syrup hoses
nice execution silliKONe!
That's sick Silikone, really nice colors. Good stuff from everyone else too
5frames- simple, nice and look like it was only pleasure to draw that. I very like simple, quick sketches and I'm a bit tired of my detailed ones. The next one will be simple
thanks for the positive feedback, people. mr joe - i'd be happy to do a few screencaps along the way sometime. fyi, it's conte in painter ix.5. i find it's the easiest tool to work with. it's not the flashiest, but it's very predictable - yet still can yield some happy, chaotic accidents...which is one reason why painter is a cool app.
some good vehicle designs on this round.
mahsroh - i feel this has potential to be a really cool painting, if you felt like putting some xtra time into it. everything's there...perspective, composition, story. just needs some tightening. mabye the forground figure could be moved a little bit away from the edge.
my 2 cents worth.
I tried a new technique, didn't really worked out. Oh well, life's a learning experience
- silliKONe again outstanding you should realy join EOW and/or IDOW! You can handle it! The progress shots will be really cool!
- Inkfish Nice render! great colors!
- Lingmerth what's wrong with this technique? I think it's pritty cool..
...Well basically al I did was take a huge time-consuming detour wich resulted in me getting bored with it and finishing it up quickly. But thanks for the comment.
i did enter a COW once - motocentaur.
i might do the trasheater if i have time for it this week. i think the dsg is great though. it keeps the blood flowing, and the variety is good.
silliKONe, again nice execution and good use of detail, I this this adhered most to the "decked-out" parameter.
5 frames I like the chopper crew compartment idea. Wow concept from flash you are brave!
Inkfish, cool idea!!
Linkmerth, nice shape!
mahsroh the vehicle is a hard read, good outside thinking though.
good job artists!
Bit late.. sry.
Here is mine;
sfter developing a water gun using active promotťus, a gas only know by the developpers themselves, the super soaker company discovered that those water guns were way too powerfull. (the death of several test monkey still stand as a proof of the overpresurized firepower release.) To avoid bankrupt, the super soaker company modified their prototype to start the manifacturing of fire truck.
Lingmerth, I liked that arrow you drew in your sketch.. As for your final firetruck, the lines could be sharpened around the wheels to make it seem more realistic than comical. The lavender is well-placed and not overpowering. Maybe you could draw plumes of smoke or fire in the backround? Enjoy yourself.
Thanks Vulgar`, I tried to add som tyre-pattern at some stage, but felt It didn't really work with the simplicity of design. But I completly agree with you.
My very late entry--dry chem fire truck, looks like a Citröen
I had Metal Slug on my mind while making it!
