Effective Vehicle Design Assignments



  • Here is my first completed assignment for the class. I've separated it into three images; as the assignment is divided into three parts 🙂

    I'll continue to post to this thread as I complete the assignments. Feel free to give me feedback, and critique me if there are any glaring mistakes. It would be much appreciated! 😃

    Part 1: Caricature

    Part 2: Stance

    Part 3: Angle (Kept at the rough sketch phase)

  • Alright, 2nd assignment finished! I designed these vehicles with Betelgeuse in mind. One of my favorite movies.

    I had to incorporate humorous/ridiculous elements because Betelgeuse is humorous, haha.

  • Okay, third assignment done! The assignment was to create an original boat design at a unique angle. I took elements of a submarine, and mixed it with a bumper boat. I wanted it to be a cute design for an imaginary theme park, so I turned it into a narwhal boat! His name is Stabby 🙂 Complete with a bubble launcher, haha.

  • Next assignment finished! This assignment was about getting creative with vehicle design. Essentially, drawing lots of different thumbnails for our next vehicle design (an aircraft). I chose to design a spaceship. Most of these are really rough and sketchy.

    First, is a set of silhouettes. This is the page I'm most happy with, and will most likely be the set of thumbnails I'll be choosing from for my final aircraft design.

    Second, a set of gesture thumbnails. (sketches that started from a quick gestural line or two) This was a real challenge for me.

    Next, a set of asymmetrical designs. To get yourself away from doing too many completely balanced designs 🙂

    Finally, a set of designs inspired by non-vehicle items. I will say that most of these(if not all of them) are hard to tell what objects I was referencing. I kept the inspiration from the objects to a minimum.

  • Alrighty then, I created a spaceship! 🙂 On to the last section of the course.

  • @Jacy13 These are so funny - pure Betelgeuse!



  • @Leah-Boulet Haha, I'm glad you like them! 😃



  • Here is my last assignment for the course. Admittedly, I tweaked the assignment a little bit 😉 It was supposed to be a car or truck design, but my mind went to something a little tougher than that. A tank! This vehicle is a Jack O' Lantern tank, and it's sole purpose is to fire out candy for Halloween!

    I made two versions.
    One in greyscale:

    One in flat color:

    This course ended up being a real learning experience. I was a little intimidated by the idea of vehicle design, but now I no longer have the fear. It was fun! Thank you Shane Hunt and SVSlearn for another great course! Now, onto the next course 🙂



  • @Jacy13 your sub-bumper boat is great! Love the narwhal angle!



  • @Jacy13 That is one inventive tank! I wish all tanks in the world threw candy. Congrats on finishing the course! I am with you on the feeling about drawings vehicles. I have had lots of fun with this course even though it is way outside my box. I still have the final assignment to finish. I was sidelined by an small accident in the family so had to slow down on the course work for a while. Looking forward to seeing you in the next course!



  • @Leah-Boulet Thank you so much! 😃



  • @Leah-Boulet Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it. Yeah, this course definitely pushes you outside of your comfort zone, but in a good way 🙂

    I'm sorry to hear about an accident that took place. I hope that all is well now with you and your family.

    I'm glad that you're back and starting to wrap up on the course. I can't wait to see your final vehicle design! 😃
