Painter. 1,5hr

"Flying car", maybe 1 hour in Photoshop. Half digital drawing, half matte painting, to calm you artistic alertness guys ;-) I used some resources to create this image, but I cannot see anything against rules, so I guess its fine. BTW, much quiker way to create concepts then doing everything by hand.

There was no reference or resources used for these drawings but opposite to usual practice, I started with using 3D and then turned it into illustration like drawings. I modeled a rough 3D car shape without any details and checked if the engines can be positioned and moved the way I imagine. Then I used the 3D rendering as a start and painted over the details and the backgrounds. Finally I used the poster edges effect in PS to make it look like this illustrative style. I spent most of the last Sunday and a couple of hours today for everyting including the 3D work.
