NOW I think I'm calling this one the final. I'm happier with the more exposed chassis and primitive surfacing. Should be lots of fun to detail up. Hope to illustrate it this weekend. Will probably scale the wheels down. I always have to pull back the toy-like/cartoony tendencies.

Gear up and taking flight. Did a couple pages of perspective sketches that were not nice at all (as is typical. I need to practice drawing planes a lot more), but liked the side view proportion and direction so I inked the lines in, scanned, and 'shopped in some color.

I wanted to submit something unique for the Tron Light Cycle illustration contest on Sidequesting.com, so my take is a chopper proportioned ride. Question: is there wind in Tron world?
