Default October, 2011: Race Track

Hi all...

So the renowned vehicle designer Harald Belker is going to be releasing an awesome new DVD with us this month based on his killer new book 'Pulse'! So in that light I thought it would be great to see what you guys n gals can come up with. The context is totally up to you, be it ancient, modern or sci-fi. Of course, feel free to experiment with ideas other than the modern racetrack, be it an alien ice world, subterranean lava field, or deep sea canyon course.

Good Luck!

edit: winners announced!

Tarterus: That looks good, but you still have 24 days left so you have plenty of time to continue working on it

Default Participating this month. Requirements?

I've been watching the competitions for the last few months and I gotta say there are some really talented dudes out there.

Been hesitant to get involved for fear that I may be overwhelmed, but I've been practicing so I'm in this month. I love the theme too. I've never done a racetrack piece before, so this will force me to work outside of my comfort zone; that's probably one of the best "bi-products" of doing challenges like this. Forced mental capacity! Hahah.

Anyway, keep up the good work peeps. I'll be uploading in a couple days. I'm almost done.

Are there any specific requirements to submit an entry? Do I need to provide WIP's or a PSD file or something? I only ask because other forums require proof of inception and execution of concept; which I will be more than happy to provide.

Smile Psypher101' Sci Fi Race Track

My first ever entry to a Gnomon Workshop forum challenge. I had a lot of fun with this month's theme. I had never done a "racetrack" before. Great challenge.



About the image:

My goal was to create a futuristic Sci Fi race track. Too often I see Sci Fi illustrations as dystopian and quite frankly depressing. I wanted show a type of beautiful Sci Fi getaway; Can I get a little Fhloston Paradise up in here? I used various photographs of Thailand for reference and texture.

The track itself was inspired by Hot Wheels toy tracks I used to play with as a childe (Who am I kidding... I still play with them).

The vehicle was inspired by one of my favorite video games; Wipeout. I do, however, have to give credit to one of my favorite Sci Fi artist's; Alexander Iglecias, aka flyingdebris, as I used his design, Hover Racer Thingy, for reference. It's not a 100% replication of his design, but without it I think I would have had trouble finishing my piece.

That's it. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it!

Default Tim Anderson- Race Track Entry



This is a topic I've been meaning to tackle for some time now, so thanks for the motivation and inspiration! I learned a few things along the way on this one, which is one of the great side effects of forcing yourself to complete something for fun on the side.

Good luck, everyone!
