Car
« on: May 21, 2021, 11:49:30 AM »
I was trying to make a quick car for line work, not been too successful at the moment......

I made this shape and liked, maybe I should just add wheels and see what it looks like.
This was the car I made a while back with 5 balloons so was looking for something quicker and easier but still captured the essence of the car.

Just added the wheels to the design to see what it looked like.

So trying just two balloons and that shape. It needed the triangle shape for the look of the front of the car.
Otherwise he would have crashed as unable to see the road  ;D ;D

We then went to Three balloons. I liked the pinch twist above the wheels as it gives the impression of the wheel arch.
So the rear wheel looked fine but the front wheel stuck out too far for me really. So I tried it under the other pinch twist
and the wheel is really a little to far back in the car design I feel?

Not sure why I made like this as the car body definitely needs double bubbles for the sides on this size car.
Different wheels, I might re-visit this and add an extra bubble all around the body of the car.

Then it was trying with a 350 body for a chunkier look and feel.
Wheels need to be a little larger.

Adding 160 so it looks like a wheel arch so the tyre blends in more with the body.
BUT, its another balloon and we are trying to make this a quicker design.
This is a five balloon design.

I added the extra layer of bubbles to this design but I don't like the look really.
With different style wheels.

It was then back to the 350 balloons, the Red car I was trying to make to look like a Mini perhaps with the White top.
A friend said it looked like one of those children's plastic car with the high top, I can see what they mean.
It did when they mentioned it to me, he he

Its just the front part of the car I'm attempting to get more car like and proportioned to the rest of the design.
Pinch twists, no pinch twists, decisions....decisions. With pinch twists it would be easy to add lights but I was
looking for a quicker line work design so no lights is the way to go for the time being.
Plus trying different style of wheels.

Cars all together, the Golden Rod car with the 160 over the top started me off on a different idea.
