This is a 20x40" vellum rendering from 3rd term at Art Center. I had a pretty good photo that I scanned in and touched up in Photoshop for a little more dynamism.

Taper coupe


Taper coupe, originally uploaded by Xyling.

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...
