train

Postby Ranger S2H » Tue Oct 20, 2009 1:47 pm

I've started at the university of twente this year, industrial design. its going pretty good, except at concept drawing and sketching due to my disability to get straight lines on paper.
in a recent assignment we were told to sketch a train, and I decided to stretch the defination of train to the point where rails arent an essential part.
as usual, it looked like crap. after several tries, I decided to screw it and make one in 3d on my laptop.

behold! the result:

- I refuse to be stopped by something as irrelevant as logic, the laws of physics, or common sense -

if 20 chickens can fit in a brick, how many pingpongballs does a crocodile have to eat so it can swim faster than a washing machine?

Reminds me of Amtrak Wars, not a bad book. Love the fight against the Mutants. Very Post Apoc on a grand scale.

C'mon, you've been asked to sketch, it's a learning process. Get the lead out (ah-haha) and do some crazy fast sketch ideas.

That looks like a good book.
this thread is now about post-apoc.

Ranger S2H train looks just like the one on the book cover. Which is cool.

The book is good, get it. The second one is the best where there is a pitched battle between one of the Amtrak's (see the train on the cover) and the a Mutant Tribe numbering in the tens of thousands. Be warned however, it continues to be great throughout the series but stops dead after number 5, without a concluding book. :?

For something based solely on a few geometric lines you shouldn't sketch the lines. Go for long, continuous, contour lines.

Also, if you're doing industrial design why do they not let you use a ruler?
