Roberto here: This week we will be assisting the good folks at the FXWARS forum.
We will be doing some concept art for their next challenge (RACE CAR CRASH!)

Please feel free to draw images of ANY time period, time present or future. The race cars, can be from any sport league (nascar, f1, go kart, Vulcan desert league etc) The idea is for the good folks at the FX wars forum to try to make your drawings come to life.
Today's Note:

Imagine that you have been contacted by an FX studio to DESING race cars. They can be from ANY era, past present or future.

hehe once again the first reply :bounce:
at least i am paying attention ;)

04 April 2006, 03:07 PM
I made 2,
Alias sketchbook pro: 30 min
just noticed the perspective of the wheels is off... ah well... you got the idea i guess

and photoshop dont' know how long:

04 April 2006, 04:06 PM
I made a promise to myself that I would post whatever the outcome was if I decided to participate in a dsg topic. I kinda regret that promise with this one.

20-25 minutes

04 April 2006, 07:23 PM
My version of sweeping shapes, 25 min

04 April 2006, 07:28 PM
I couldnt bring myself to take part in todays challenge, i preferred drawing them crash:p Still, good work everyone!

04 April 2006, 07:37 PM
I'm very sorry Roberto but I've failed... This is 45 minutes. Not 25... I forgot to back up at 25 minutes and kept painting over it.

04 April 2006, 07:59 PM
Really inspiring to participate. Here my little cutie, 11 min ps

04 April 2006, 08:03 PM
Allright! Here you are: 20 minutes sharp. I used an egg timer this time :D

04 April 2006, 09:29 PM
20 minutes for a race car - I felt very tight , but it was neat to see the design choices I had to plan knowing I only had 20 min -

I decided to go with the old school race car look - I would like to spend more time and give it a modern look

jeroentje - Yeah ! I love the monster truck

04 April 2006, 10:37 PM
Here is my first sketch
(hand made picture - foto not scan)
some mouse (no tablet yet :( ) + Photoshop
hope you like it. (

04 April 2006, 10:42 PM
done in photoshop in 22 min.

04 April 2006, 10:49 PM
20 minutes in openCanvas err... I never draw cars o.O sorry if I hurt your eyes haha

04 April 2006, 11:42 PM
a tad over 30 mins. :X

fiddled with the background and screwd up a few times...

04 April 2006, 12:52 AM
26 mins, photoshop, bedtime!

Edit: Not very aerodynamic, is it? :D

Add on another 15 minutes:

04 April 2006, 01:23 AM
Well, I gave up on the time thing because I designed as I went, did alot of eraseing, etc.. so my paper was probably almost blank after 25 min. and I didn't time it after that. So yeah, no idea, but i did try to do it speedily. :D
Oh and it's equipped for night racing with neon lights :)

04 April 2006, 01:28 AM
Wow, you guys are fast! I didn't even get to color mine.

Painter 25min

04 April 2006, 02:35 AM
no colour time

04 April 2006, 02:45 AM
These are all good ones, especially jeroentje, twistercash, mybutterflyiris, Davey, smurph. I didn't spend much time on mine, because I figured I'd just ruin it if I went on... Well 10 mins, PSCS2.

04 April 2006, 03:01 AM
Sorry this guy is pretty large but I compressed it alot. I was too lazy to throw it into PS. Spent just under 30 on it. It didn't really turn out much like I wanted the hood to. I was trying to get more of a force perspective type of feel when I imagined it. I really should draw more.

04 April 2006, 03:07 AM
here is my crappy submission.. *sigh*

04 April 2006, 03:42 AM

FUULLLL SPEEDDDD!!! once again the car no.26 leads the other to the finish line.....BROOOOOOMM!!!

04 April 2006, 04:38 AM
here's another car, more mad max than racing I suppose, the final one is about 35

04 April 2006, 05:25 AM
Totally awesome smurf. Mind if try to make a model of that?

04 April 2006, 05:35 AM
thanks allot methodicalj, absolutely, be my guest.

04 April 2006, 06:00 AM
Great for 25 Minutes Smurf,just great in general.
Here's mine:

04 April 2006, 06:15 AM
I'm not very good at mechanical/architectural objects, but I thought I'd give it a shot and just make it really organic. Looked up some shiny horses and this is what I got:

30 mins (whoops - should have been 25, eh? Sorry.):
Plus about 30 mins:

04 April 2006, 06:57 AM
Painter IX 25 minutes

04 April 2006, 07:25 AM
soory i exceeded the time it took me almost an hour for the sketch' im just tooo exited to put some details


04 April 2006, 07:41 AM
JCGA: i really like your choice of colors
paperclip: actually that's very aerodynamic in shape.. if you had more time to detail it, i think it'd be awesome :)
mybutterflyiris: very expressive strokes, cool concept
smurph: awesome design!
nards26: vibrant colors :D

this is my sewer-racing hovercar thingie from yesterday's crash sketch (before it crashed).. the surface under it is supposed to be sewer water, i ran out of time lol (
30mins (lol), photoshop7

04 April 2006, 08:17 AM
thanks Michele ur design are cool':thumbsup: its like a f-16 falcon jet customized to a car

04 April 2006, 09:36 AM ( forgot to time it, but i'm cheating nonetheless, it may be 30 min's.
Alias Sketchbook 2, Wacom Graphire 3. I don't know, it probably resembles it, but i couldn't take the image of a yellow Saleen SR7 off my head :)

04 April 2006, 09:59 AM
Went over a bit, about 30 mins for the lot +scanning/ps-ing time. The times are written next to each. Design suffered from the time limit, should've done fewer drawings with a better design.

04 April 2006, 12:04 PM
way to go people!

jeroentje, Davey, smurph - great work!

PS/wacom about 20 min...

good work everybody!

04 April 2006, 07:12 PM
I made this one for the new thread " Race Track" But I focal too much on the car and did this one.
I use 45 min as in the " Race Track " thread. So, I have no screen of what it was at 25 min. Sorry ! I'm disqualified for this day :shrug:

Great work to all !

04 April 2006, 09:33 PM
Well been a while since I posted in the DSG but I've been looking for an excuse to do a car sketch. The initial sketch was done in 20 minutes in Painter but it took 120 minutes to render in Photoshop, so I guess Im a bit over.

04 April 2006, 09:39 PM
man! thats awesome!!! - no Maya? hehe...

nice to see you around!

04 April 2006, 10:29 PM
Wow Andrewley, that's really nice!

04 April 2006, 05:53 AM
Lets Race Andrew hehehe :bounce:

04 April 2006, 09:13 AM
Andrewley; nards: any chance of a few tips on how to do that type of rendering? :)

04 April 2006, 11:49 AM
I was going for a semi-futuristic club racer like a Cobra or Elise which, of course, were my inspirations for this drawing.

PS7/ Intuous3/ 25 minutes to 3+ hours

04 April 2006, 07:59 PM
andrewley: nice design friend :D

here is mine:
18min - pen, markers
5min - photoshop

04 April 2006, 08:04 PM
rawwad, yours is my favorite. Great design!

04 April 2006, 10:36 PM
andrewley : cool design & good to see you here :D

rawwad: n1 i like it :applause:

04 April 2006, 10:54 PM
rawwad > :applause:

04 April 2006, 02:35 AM
another sketch pencil only with pilot

04 April 2006, 10:58 AM
25 minutes, Artrage2 + photoshop to add the '24'
No time left to do the wheels, so it's a hover racecar :)

Cool cars guys, especially Rawwads.

04 April 2006, 12:02 PM
Another 25 minutes i Artrage2 and another racecar... :)

25 minutes is shorter than you think ... and the driver is a bit too small :shrug:

04 April 2006, 12:09 PM
or it's just a big car.. hehe

04 April 2006, 12:32 PM
or it's just a big car.. hehe

Thanks for the save :D !

04 April 2006, 12:35 PM
were both from the netherlands, we should stick up for eachother ;)

04 April 2006, 02:20 AM
Hi, exactly 25min!, Photoshop, Wacom Cintiq

Btw, it's inspired on a bull. I'm developing the driver, the car, the track and the crash around this concept.


04 April 2006, 10:27 AM
damit....that was my cup of tea. :cry:

04 April 2006, 10:47 PM
Wow! So many had very interesting ideas, but rawwad and andrewley are my favorites.
