Ultima GTR based concept exterior design sketch

Nerdy Sketch

My hands have been idle for a very very long time. Not good!
Although the project is entering into the next stage – 3D modelling, I’ll keep bombarding this place with hand drawn sketches.

More cool stuff on the way soon…

red inspiration

It’s time to get serious with this project. Themes for the Racing Version are pretty much there, but it all needs a lot more work. Starting with detailing on the rear end and real Racing featues used in Formula 1 racing it all starts to look more believable and mature. More to come!

still got the blue`s…

Posting some more stuff on the Ultima based project. There will be two versions/designs on the subject: a road going version and a track based one. Overall volumes & themes are pretty much there, but fronts and rears still need more work & refinement before going into 3D development.

some like it soft

Ultima GTR Based Sports Car, Rear End Sketch

A friend of mine (Roman Skokov) suggested I should try one of these rear themes (Theme B) with softer shapes so it works better with the original car.
So I gave it a little try and here is a small sketch as a study. Couldn’t be asked to put any colour though….

ABC, one, two, three, baby, you and me girl! ….🎵 🎶

Just like the Jacksons 5, the question we have here is ABC or 1, 2, 3….
Did this little page of thumbnail sketches for myself a few months back while having the morning coffee just to summerise some of the themes on the concept so far, but I guess there are cool features in each of them.
As much as I hate doing rendirings, I guess I have to colour some of these sketches to see which ones are worth developing further…

I hardly had any time to post recently, but here is another small batch of sketches based around the Ultima One-Off vechile. Indeed some of them were done on the plane on the way to Italy.

I still can’t quite decide whether this “thing” should be more racy witn wings…ducts, dive planes etc, or it should be more clean and simple…. Hmmm….meditate on this I will!

keep them rolling

Ultima GTR pen sketchAs you’ve probably noticed lately, sketching racy custom made Ultimas could be quite intriguing. A few nice themes are starting to emerge..
For now though, here is a pen sketch, which I am planning to colour up and give it some “bling” when time allows..
Really keen on the rear by the way….

smells like markers..

I forgot how good it feels to get High on markers! Good old Chartpak Markers! I have a few more sketches to upload soon.
