This is a great start, the "Meadness" is sticking out all ready. The alien camel things are a nice touch, cant wait to see how this one turns out.

TMunro - Thanks! Although I'm not a vehicle designer like some of the entrants will be (I've never drawn a vehicle in my life!) I'm hoping I can inject sufficient Meadness to compensate

Anyhow, here's my colour rough

cgdigi - Thanks, good luck also!

serio - Glad you think so, the colours are the second biggest challenge, after the geometry of the thing - sometimes I wish I had a 3D app

You definitely have some "classic" Mead elements.
  • Exotic location
  • Parked funky vehicle
  • People standing and sitting around
  • strange animals
You might punch your color palette and contrast, in the foreground.

lunadude - Hey thanks, if I'm hitting all those then there's hope! And for sure, those colours will be buzzing soon, what's mostly down now is the underpainting which is lower contrast than the final colour. In theory

OK, an update. A bit of spot the difference really, hard to credit I spend 4 hours on those tailpipes and the rough detail on four of the wheels. I bet Syd could have done two full images in that time

The hatch is looking much better in the update.

It's looking great! I have a similar color scheme in my piece, more of a red-orange, chrome with cream accents. Your portfolio illustrations are very well done and I'm excited to see how you use your skill on the mechanical side! Also I sent you a network request, check your portfolio if you want to join.
