coming back to the blog after a long while, I realized that I had forgotten to post quite a few of my sketches here from last year! how silly of me! Well... here are the sketches I forgot to post last year! :) hope you guys like'em!
Oh wow, it's been 5 months! I've been swamped with work, and wasn't able to post anything on my blog :-P well... to start off this year's sketches (a little late I admit), here are a bunch of sketches I did emulating a sort of cartoon illustration style. no multicoloured shading, no block colours, just pure hatching and scribbles :)
Check out the all the pictures in the slideshow below :)
While travelling around in India, I've come to like the Tata Magic Iris. It's small, rear engined, cute, and pretty basic and pure. It is super cheap as it only has what it needs, some seats, 4 wheels, an engine and a steering wheel.
I've been having some visions on how this charming little car would look like as a modern interpretation of a VW bus. It does share some commonalities, but in a miniature form. Here's my rendition on how I think an Iris Bus would look like. Hopefully, when i save up enough money in the future to buy one, I would make it into an actual project car and try to convert it into a mini campervan :)
been ages since i sketched! here's something i've done for the LM sketchwall.... a group B tata nano! :-P
its a mid engined pocket rocket, with a radical engine producing over 250bhp in a car that weighs less than half a ton..... INSANITY!! :D
