I said to go further with the renault concept. This is what came up:


You're a bit uneven still. Some sketches are absolutely wonderful, and some are just "meh".

I've attached an image that particularly had me curious:

At first, I thought you were using a low-poly 3D model as underlay, because you made the same mistake in several different angles. But then I saw the angular edges and thought, "@#$@#$ he must be using the polygonal lasso tool"!

I'm still not 100% sure which technique you're using (though I'm betting it's the lasso), but if it is the first, it would be very interesting to see the 3D mock-up, and if it is the second one... please, please, please switch to the path tool instead. :D

The mistake, btw, is that the curvature in the C-pillar pinches together at one point close to the bod:

nah , path tool vs polygonal lasso ?

just make a few more iterations with the polygonal lasso and everythings fine IMO - if you consider these works being sketches thats accurate enough .

i'm with eobet, tho , if you want to make a final full detail rendering

regards, max

nice applications of colouring, you have elegant swaying of lines. I like the front of Range Rover and the rear of Lotus, yet you wave too much, try to limit amount of lines that go bonkers, try to limit amount of agressive curvatures,. design can be compared to music, the biggest curvatures are like refrain, yet the whole song is more moderate. This is what makes the refrain and chorus enjoyable, because we look forward it.

Thanks for the advice advancedboy. The thing is that basically now I'm just experimenting different tehniques of rendering and brushes,etc...once I'll define a personal style I'll be able to speak more about the design itself :)
some more tests:

You`re welcome. Maybe we could some time later join forces, and design something;) Anyway, have you ever seen Sarah Brightman sing? When she sings, the whole crowd holds the breath before she sings refrain, because she radiates such a peace, yet in a melody she explodes and curves and bends the notes. Good design is about peace, it must radiate calm sedate ocean right before a storm. Good design is a mixture of milk of mother`s breast and a notch of absynthe in it;))

While I try to keep mothers breast out of my designs your style is working nicely at communcating both the form and emotion. While talking with one of the chief designers at Ford the other day he said it best that "The auto industry is still the only place where nothing will replace the hot sketch"

Nice work.

Really like the sketches here! I was wondering, how do you achieve that pretty balance between soft spots and sharp lines? Is it just a matter of setting the brushes?

Greets,

Well I start putting the base colours all over the sketch-a multiply layer...and after I have more or less "the base" defined I just make another normal layer and get into the details with the polygonal tool as whell...That's all...
Cheers!

Tudoran - Im usually not a fan of really colorful, crazy sketches like this (its just not my style) but I really like them. They have a great sense of energy and emotion. Even though they are really complex you pull them together well. Really like the Range Rover and Maserati. Keep it up, would love to see a time lapse of a screen capture of you doing one of these.

Thanks very much for you explaination! I'm going to try out this technique, I think I will definately learn from this. My main point is that I need to loosen up in order to make my renders look more natural, like yours do. Thanks again!
