Dodge Dart - Living City by ARTCADEV Dodge Dart - Living City by ARTCADEV
Hello everyone!!!

I like to thank the Deviant Community for letting me participate on this Art Contest. I will express some of my ideas behind the design of this image.

When I started to create this image I wanted to recreate the living city of Dodge within the environment, so I took some of the elements in the Dart car and rearrange them to create things like Bridge Dodge. So the actual design of the bridge is inspired by the overal design of car.

Having those elements I wanted to make it feel fast and strong within the city, but making sure that Dart was the principal and focus of this image.

The total time was 24 hours of painting, done in Photoshop, I used some photo references for the car, and from there I took my imagination and skills let the rest of it make it happen.

I hope you guys enjoy and plz if you have any comments leave it in the comment box below.


Andre

Oh no, I definitely agree that the judging was a little... off. Oh well, it was fun to give it a shot. :)

Simplemente de Puta madre André!
Solo unas observaciones...
La curva del camino se pega un poco con el techo del auto, tanto rojo en la estructura de fondo como que empasta con el rojo del auto, si entrecerramos los ojos vas a ver que se te pierde un poco, pero es por la clave tonal de color que elejiste... y resaltando el comentario de Mely-Val... el atardeces llama mucho la atencion hacia ese punto...

Espero que te sirva de algo la observacion... vos sabes que sos un artista de los grosos!

Te deceo mucha, pero mucha suerte en este concurso!

Exitos!

Design is like a speaking another language!!! You might don't know all the words but if you know the basics you can communicate, hence get something that probably isn't the best of you but still gives you the tools to proper communicate :)!!! I hope this make sense...Cheers

Get a good computer with tons of RAM and a good Process Intel 7 or above!!! Try to get your hands on a Wacom tablet and Digital Licence for Students like Photoshop or Corel Painter...And the most important thing try to get some classes of foundations, those are the key for any artist to succeed...The rest is just practice, practice and more practice. The more you practice the better you will get. Remember whatever you want do in your life, just go for it and grab it. :) Cheers
