Here's a drawing of my version of the post-apocalyptic vehicle. It's the new Beetle for 2068! Made from radiation resistant mutated insect exoskeleton and powered by...mutant hamsters! Great mpg... :P

Well, now the hard part...actually modeling the thing. Hope I can get something relatively finished by the end of the month. :)

Heh, I knew I would appeal to that niche mutant hamster faction out there! :D

Anyway, here is an update. I've been modeling away in Max 4.

If the render looks a bit off, I apologize...I've been waiting anxiously for my new monitor to arrive. My current one is screwed up.

nice. Is the vehicle small, or are the hamsters large mutants?

Thanks for the comments guys. It's slow going for me, but the model is slowly getting hashed out.

sono: The car is human sized, albeit only fit for one. Shaq probably couldn't use it. The hamsters are fairly big, but completely tame.

The car best be light, too. As big as those hamsters are, it will probably take them a lot to get the thing's more of a tongue in cheek project, but I think that's been coming across. (Like my "head" light?):D

OK, here's yet another WIP of the car. The major pieces are in place. For some reason, the rear of the car came out smaller than I thought. Should be no big deal to fix. Otherwise, the next step should be finishing up the cockpit and adding smaller details. Any other comments/thoughts/suggestions?
Thanks in advance. :)

Well, I unfortunately I didn't get a chance to model the hamsters, but the vehicle is fairly close. The pics that follow will be my final renders for the challenge. Since I'll still be working on it, any and all comments will still definitely be helpful. Thanks!
