Road Reaper by gt1750 Road Reaper by gt1750
This was my entry to a recent Czech design contest. It's designed for an existing chassis (Gordon roadster, a Czech made replica resembling Aero 30), that's why it's so narrow and why the driver sits so high. Note that he is only 170cm tall like he was in the chassis template.

Oh, and I finished 4th of 36 in my category.

Technique: pencil, thin black marker, Photoshop

Road Reaper by ~gt1750 sort of reminds me of the batmobile which is cool, however, this design is much more doable. I love the sketches which shows thought process. Great design. ( Featured by depthskins )

What if you designed for Hot Wheels ? If you did you would be very successful. Do you want to work for an auto company like GM or Dodge or maybe Chrysler?

Not really sure, I'll try a few companies once I finish my MSc studies.

Congratulations! I can see this as a new BMW Z4 roadster, at least that's my first impression of the car. Not sure how I feel about the low windshield/windows.... but designwise it's sweet!

Thanks but I'm afraid this can't ever be badged as BMW as it's too far from any of their styling directions and cues. This is just a hot rod thingy with no ambition to wear a famous badge.

I dunno.... It's a nice design, but I understand what you mean. Shame really though how car manufacturers are so limited because of expectations placed on them by people who are looking at the pricetag.

Well, this is not exactly a chop as it's not photo-based. I prefer to call it "CG enchanced sketch" :)

Thanks anyway :D

seems to me like the KTM X-BOW

I'm afraid the only similarities between this and the X-Bow are the orange/black colour sheme and the fact it has four wheels and no roof :)

Thanks. What do you mean by modeling? This is just 2D artwork.

jonsibal Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
I did mean the "modeling" in 2D terms as it has great use of shadows and highlights and depth to it.

No, I haven't. CS is sufficient for all my needs. I used 4.0 and 6.0 a lot before CS.

As a 3D model - When I decide to learn 3D modelling or when someone with enough talent asks me for blueprints.

In reality: most probably never.
