Concept car

Very much a WIP. I change the design everytime I open it! Realise there's a lot of work still to do. Only a test render but here it is anyway.

If you are aiming to a more realistic look you probably should lower the hood to increase visibility from driver's seat. Also make sure you have all body parts separated by cuts. Like right now there's no way to tell where the front bumper ends and the front wing begins...
Love the headlights. :)

I think I need to rework the whole basic shape really. I tend to get lost pulling it this way and that! I was going to model it and cut it afterwards. D'you think I should do that as I go?? Thanks! the headlights are about the only bit I was "sort of" happy with. Everytime I tweak it it starts looking like an existing vehicle and I was trying (unsucessfully) to avoid that. If it ends up looking even half way as good as your guys models I'll be happy enough.

You might want to start with a sketch if you have drawing skills. Draw a body side view at least. When the body mesh is done it might be hard to brake it into parts without major changes to an overall design and pulling things this way and there again.

I said that. Designing a car is no mean feat. Lazmo67 you are bellatastic. :)

Looking forward to seeing more progress on this one and helping out where I can!

Lol Shafi! I actually thought it would probably be easier following my own design and no one could tell me "that bit doesn't appear on a 67 mustang" etc etc.. ( I know it looks nothing like a 67 mustang, who'd of thought! )

It does make some bits easier but also makes other bits an awful lot harder! Maybe I should of stuck to the blueprints I drew up but the temptation to change things was too big!

I'm looking at it now and cringing. Million things wrong with it. The cabin is way too low. Looks like a half top! as Sangre pointed out, visibility might be an issue! tyres, grill etc, etc etc!!

"Bellatastic" I like that! lol. think I prefer Pennytastic or Manuelatastic but horses for courses! Your help is, as always, gratefully received.

No progress to report. Afraid the PC was commandeered by Daughter #2 last night as I quote "my laptop can't run Sims properly!" Hopefully I can distract her, or lock her in the cupboard (that's a joke btw, I know some of you people don't understand the english sense of humour!) long enough to get something done tonight

Watch this space!

That's Manuelatastic!

Only thing... push the design to 11. No, 12. I want to be gob-smacked by all the innovations that I've never seen before. I want you to make that Minority Report car look like something from the 1920's. Hell, I want to make one myself.

my main issue is the proportions of the front wheel fairings and the bulge in the bonnet. the centre of gravity looks well off. you'd need a booster seat just to see forward through the windscreen :P

I'll settle for Manuelatastic!

Herfst1: I think the push to 11 (or 12) will have to wait for my inner sci fi geek to emerge!

Westcoast: Don't get Sims. My daughter seems to spend hours watching virtual people sleep! If you can't shoot it, drive it or blungeon it to death with a guitar what's the point of a game!

Strat, i'll model the booster seats and some blocks for the pedals! lol. I need to address the bulge in the bonnet but I kinda like it! think if I increase the height of the windscreen it'll sort it out maybe.
