hi guys. im new to this forum. and i thought i can maybe find some help on this forum. i am researching on ways to develop a certain method of strategy to draw more "futuristic" looking things for a research class.
my main question is what really defines a futuristic concept?
My thesis and opinion i guess would be that... concept is very important. concept is what defines the future. like, a flying car. since a flying car doesnt exist in our world, that concept would ultimately be seen as futuristic. However, this is when the aesthetic part of the concept comes in. As the concept is very vital to a futuristic drawing, I believe that the aesthetic qualities almost sets the time period or the believability of a futuristic concept. For example, if we looked at The Jetson's cars and houses, we would see it as futuristic. But since everything seems so retro-futuristic, so to me, it would only seem as cheesy, outdated, and highly unbelievable.
Anyways. those are just some ideas of what i beleive make up a futuristic concept. So, that is why i created this thread to hear other people's views and ideas on futuristic concept.
Is it the dynamic shape and form that make it look more futuristic?
Is it the recurrent round shape in space vehicles?
Is it the details of mechanical lines that run across the wing of a space ship?
I really dont know. hahaha. thats why i came to conceptart.org to find some opinions on what types of methods or reoccurring strategies futuristic concept artists use in their pieces to really define for the viewer that someone is looking at something that takes place in the future.
i'd appreciate a lot of good comments and feedback. thanks!
There are two things to contend with in trying to establish "guidelines" (for want of a better term) for "Futuristic" imagery...
A. Attempting to gauge the interaction of future designers/scientists/manufacturers establishing minimalist standards for efficiency in both operation and use of materials, and the average consumer's need to decorate up the wazoo to their own perceived knowledge/opinion of what it should look like.
B. Exactly how much do I want (as a designer of the future) to embarrass my descendents?
