Today's topic is: Vehicle: Light armored speed (dune)buggy
Didn't have any reference for this one, so it's a bit of a thumb suck. Please forgive any obvious mistakes
Took about 5 minutes in openCanvas.
Despite what this drawing may lead you to believe, I've actually built these things while I was an engineering student. We participated in a national competition for off-road racing and did pretty well. The best part was building a bad-ass off-road buggy from scratch and then beating it to shreds joy riding after the competition's races were over.

I like the one by goran, im glad he didnt put a pulse rifle on the top, like everyone else does.
plain, simple, not so beautiful
Gotta practise this mechanical stuff some more... its fun
kraschtm: Heh nice perspective, I like the sky too
Baaaah: Love the sense of motion
Goran: Nicely done
ok im really late for this but i had something on hand that i just wanted to post
so here it is
hard topic to be cretive on.............
another quick one...not time for color
some nice designs!
I delayed posting as I'm not keen on being in the dsg contests, it ain't about that.
anyhoos, here one of my buggys, I did 2 in the day, the cat's playing with the other one:
if anyone has some good pointers for using prismacolor cool/warm gray markers, there's a newbie to them right here that would be greatful.
I can't really give you that many pointers as I'm fairly new to them myself, but you might want to have a look at one or two of the DVD's by Feng Shu, as he tends to use those markers quite a lot in his concept work and it's interesting to see how he uses them. I've got one on how he develops concept for environments and he uses prismacolor markers throughout. He generally works from light to dark however, broadly going over large areas with the lighter markers and then works back into the darker tones. Hope that's a bit of help anyway
Did you buy those markers in the UK? I haven't been able to get hold of them here.
thanks for the pointers, I'll check his site out.
btw - did you have any trouble getting hold of the dvd's from the states?
as for the markers, I got both full sets form the usa delivered to my house for less than it would have cost me to buy just one set in the uk!
I'll get the details and post them later - they were $25 per set - what's that? about £18?
the only place I've seen them, cool gray only - £50 for 12, was at Miller Graphics in scotland...
I buy a lot of my stuff, paper, pens, inks, pencils etc, from edinburgh college of art's shop, you don't have to be a student and it's much cheaper than the shops, might be worth checking out any colleges near you.
All his dvd's are sold through Gnomon Workshop so you might as well go straight to that site - it's where I got mine from anyway. Didn't have any trouble getting it, i think it arrived in around a week and i didn't get any import charges - though i think that may have been more down to luck perhaps .
Yeah, I'd be interested to know where you bought those pens from in the US, sounds like you got them for a good price.

This reminds me of Mel Gibson's Mad Max days...well done!

sorry for the delay Baaah!
Here it is: http://www.discountart.com/
When ordering from them, it's not immediately obvious how to place an order
from the UK. Basically, what you do is fill in the order form as normal and
ignore any shipping options (or use the default one), and when they see your
address is a UK one, they will email you with the estimated total cost,
including shipping. If you mail back and accept that, they will charge your
credit card and send the stuff. If in doubt, mail them; they seem to be
pretty helpful and friendly.
No probs . Cheers SF
