Apparently, at the designer night drawing competition at this year's LA Auto Show (couldn't make it, business trip with bad timing), the three way final challenge was to draw a Lotus 49. None of the bonehead designers knew what kind of car it was. You only have a few minutes to pull it off, so that's tough, but you'd better know that the 49 wasn't a passenger car. Good grief, kids. Here's my off the top of my head quickie in less than five minutes.

The underwater vehicle genre is a new thing for me to draw, so I'm having fun exploring the freedoms of not needing to ground these, but be less concerned with aero clean-ness as this thing putters around at a pretty slow speed in the inky depths. Mechanical pencil on Tria marker paper.

Pressurized-Hull Bulldozer Sketch Part 3
I did my first attempt at doing some video of my analog sketch process. I tried a couple of other camera angles, this one is upside down, but has the least hand obstruction. Hope it is useful or interesting. If you have the patience to actually sit down and watch it, make sure you try the full size HD version (change the quality settings.) Thanks!
In the search for top speed in the early days of hot rods, modders took all sorts of extreme steps to streamline their production bodies. A typical period coupe was not very aerodynamically efficient and more than one person flipped the body around to try to get more speed- not the best aesthetic solution. I was wondering if anyone ever tried to take a pie section out of the middle to taper the rear. Maybe even have a modified narrow rear axle. I want to render this one up-not sure if I'll go wide with the wheels in back or not...
