This week we will go into the movie biz.
Imagine you have been contracted to work on REMAKES of a classic SCIFI TV show or movie.


“Knight Rider

Knight Rider was a popular US 1980s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980s) television (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television) show. It starred David Hasselhoff (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Hasselhoff) as Michael Knight, a kind of modern-day 'knight' who drove an advanced smart car (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_car) with artificial intelligence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_intelligence). Conceived and produced by Glen A. Larson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_A._Larson), the show was an instant hit and inspired a subgenre of high-tech crimefighter series.

Decided to switch from the Trans Am to the new Dodge Charger. Although to be perfectly honest, it's barely recognizable. The attempt at perspective threw me off.

About 30 minutes, Photoshop + Intuos.

Decided that car should have been redesigned to look more with the contemporary production:

<geekmode> It's K.I.T.T - Knight Industries Two Thousand </geekmode>
Loved the car way back when. And the intro theme... who can forget that classic?!
It has to be 1 of the best TV theme songs ever!
Unfortunately don't have the time to do this one.
Keep at it people! :)

Okay...I need to go out and get some fresh air a bit...but just to let you know...

"Knight Rider a shadowy figure...who does not exist..."(and there goes the usual background music in my head).

I don't like cars....but damn you guys bring back memories.

btw: Good one Vahn!

I watched that show all the time, but I thought I would go a different direction with this one.

OpenCanvas, 1 hour

Darn. Vahn totally stole my idea!
Seriously, nice stuff so far

csgirl: Another gold entry from you. :)
SurfGod: Nice job with the funky lighting. I like the rice look. :p Maybe Knight Industries' Japanese branch? :D
Vahn: Hilarious! You should make that into an animated GIF, though, just for kicks. :p

edit: Sorry, Vahn, couldn't resist. :D

My favorite line from Knightrider:
Kit: "Micheal, where are your pants?"
Hasslehoff: "Not now kit"
Any way thought I'd take it in a different direction. It always pissed me off that he didnt have a weapon too, so I threw that in.
PS/Wacom 2hrs. reference used for the motorcycle

When are we doing A-Team?

It's my first time; be gentle ;)

I'm fairly happy with this (David Hasselhoff approved!!) sketch, since I'm terrible at cars...I've maybe drawn, ummm, one, before. No reference, 35-40 mins (PS, Wacom), tried to capture the feel of the intro. Well, what I can remember from the intro. I was only born in '87 :D

Wow, haven't surfed these forums in ages and it just so happens that when I find the Daily Sketches here the topic is a Knight Rider redesign, I think it must have been calling to me.
Roughly an hour, predominantly PS:

Thanks Daniell.

Couldn't help myself, I did another one, not as happy with, so it's not nicely finished.

Now that I have stopped playing worlds of warcraft I should have time to do other things, like sketch :) What a cool topic to come back to. Almost an hour in Photoshop. I was thinking of some cool futuristic F-1 racer kind of car.

I tried to work a "pity" in there too, seeing as my knowledge of Mr. T is restricted to pity, fools, too much jewelry and general aintgettingonnoplane-ness. Damn you for getting that theme song stuck in my head :P ;)

1h in photoshop with wacom volito. It's so hard to draw with wacom. Wacom is for painting.

Good job guys! I know I'm late, but couldn't get to a computer last night. My take...

Edit> Oh yeah... 3 hrs Photoshop CS w/ wacom...

Also: I want to mention I based this off of the Audi used in IRobot... Not the best with mechanical or automotive stuff so I needed something to look from...
