Interesting midterm class. Presented my Racing Ferrari progress. I think it went well. This doodle started in class during entertaining discussion about how relative the green movement really is. Something that seems so good has bad side effects that people prefer to ignore when the could outweigh benefits. But the bottom line is that population of the world keeps growing so it is only going to get...better!
Having fun with my Racing Ferrari. Did more sketches: changed the way rear fender interacts with the intake and tweaked the front.

refining number one idea from previous post. Trying to blend it with the side and back surface language. Onle 4 days left. I will make it!

Not 100% satisfied so played some more with the hood and fascia trying to match it better to the side and rear surfaces. Like 2 and 1 better than what I had before. Feels more modern. Have a though about making grill out of glass could be cool but just a thought at this point...

Buick! redid earlier sketch front 3/4. Extended the wheelbase to a more realistic for a sedan added wheels ,changed little things like DLO, rear view mirrors. Rear  sketch is new. I still have time left until the end of the month so I wonder whether I should attempt to build a model or continue with the sketches...not sure. On one hand nice model would look awesome at the same time I could sketch more details like open the doors show some things inside...

Some more progress on the racing Ferrari. Finally moved to Alias. Happy with the proportions at this point but definitely needs a lot of work. I need to start making connection  between design and bio-algae-crazy racetrack  concept.

After yesterday class picked two favorite side views  from the last posted page and tried combine them into one...literally. Also shortened the wheelbase. Overall gesture is still there and this wheelbase seems more reasonable. Bottom sketch is my favorite. I like the cleanness of the side with a strong zigzag line and interesting opening by the back wheel...

More on Buick. Played with the front end looking for a simpler solution with surface and graphic. I am happy with overall direction. Feels Buick to me. Next work on the rear and I also would like to open the doors and show some interior

Simplifying, searching for hierarchy and fighting with the package  and the doors... those important things you know.

Started last night before going to bed. Just wanted to have some fun while researching race cars. Have to say I can not get the exposed frame idea out of my head. Maybe I should do it...

More on Buick. Fighting to make it real. Mostly package, bumper heights and things like that.

This is a new project I'm working on: race car. We were given a freedom to pick our own type of the race car and care concept. My idea revolves around algae where algae farm in the center of the track provides fuel and possibly resin for the exterior plastic. Brand for the race car I picked Ferrari. Seems like Ferrari could do something like that considering their size and presence.
