A.P.C. by JamesLedgerConcepts A.P.C. by JamesLedgerConcepts
Finally finished this piece. Took me many evenings to create something half decent. My first real attempt at a vehicle and it was bloody hard to do. This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. The full license for this image is 50 ($85).
The full size image is 1.5 meters (60 inches) wide which will feature at my gallery display in Bristol, UK throughout August.
All painted in Photoshop CS5 from scratch. I used the vanishing point tool as usual but actually ended up 'guessing' the perspective for most of the image. I really must learn to use a 3d application to speed up designs at some point.
After getting it printed (3 copies) I realized there was a small but annoying blob in the center of the sky - so I had to get it printed again after clearing it up with the clone stamp tool. Expensive error! It's just impossible to tell what a professional printer will pick up!

A similar image would take about 4 days to complete (including revisions). The cost would be 400 ($640).

Amazing, I love vehicles as I used to draw cars during my free time, now I hope to catch that with me during the game-artist education by designing my own vehicles. And works like this are definitely part of my interest and inspiration cause I love futuristic & sci-fi objects aswell^^ Lovely work man, you got my biggest respect for your works:)

Excellent - thanks again Lag!. Like with characters I haven't spent much time on vehicles - this is another area that I need to work on. I am spending too much time on exterior environments.
Make sure to draw plenty of different designs and look into how real vehicles work - I actually realized that the men in the back of the APC would probably have to parachute out as there is no ladders etc. I guess an electric ladder could be concealed somewhere...

Most welcome mate:)
Well I think your works so far look pretty good I mean...even though you haven't spended much time on these subject matters, you can draw them realy good! And your environments are realy good, that's also how I found you^^

But yea I totally agree with you there, we need to know how things work in reality and need to find a way to restyle it to something different, futuristic look etc. I know those kind of things, but usually they don't turn out so well, because I still need to train my fundamental things. Ah well...matter of practice I guess:)

the point of view is interesting, in the middle of the grass, and the vehicle looks great! It would work very well in a Ridley Scott movie !

Thanks Ludo - yes, the angle was a real problem, especially the wheels. I was thinking of Aliens at the time.
