Car Design Feedback

Recommended Posts

Hey guys im 16 and hope to be a car designer. Iv been looking around a few different forums looking at others work and i really am impressed with what i see, and i hope to be getting as good as some of you. Im really just looking to see what people think of my designs, i know theyre not perfect but i am improving.

 

I don't really have much of a proper portfolio but iv made a really basic website just so people can have a look through at my designs. I love working with biro's and some pencil, but i have to say most of these are just done on a wacom tablet on sketchbook pro (its free it your a student :) ) but now im starting off my sketches on paper because i feel i can get proportions done a lot better.

 

Anyway id really appreciate a bit of feedback, and id love to hear some constructive criticism because i love car designing and getting help to improve is great! Here's the link to my website, be sure to check the 'Car Design' section, newer ones are nearer the top btw :)

For only being 16 your work is really quite good! I think you have a promising future ahead of you if you keep it up.

 

Some of your designs have some slight perspective issues but on a whole its pretty good, and your understanding of highlights and shadows is developing nicely from what I can see.

 

Keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing more!

Most important thing for an IDer is your end user.

Not entirely sure how that translates over to car design, you may opt for styling as your forte, but at the end of the day if you design your product around your user, based on sound user research you'll be quite successful.

 

For sixteen your drawings are great, I loved art at your age and would paint and draw people etc, and only got into doing product renderings during my course....that said I'd always be sketching products too, but never at a rendering level.

 

If you are looking for something to improve on, it'll always be line work and proportions.

 

Nice job and keep up the good work and the posting.

very nice indeed, you have it in you. Challenge yourself, work more on elements,, And I like your perspective. My perspective sucks.
