Driver for the Vehicle and Driver project!
This is one of the first women I have ever drawn, so felt the need to get it right.
Reference-wise, it was difficult to find an image when searching for "female mechanic" that wasn't hyper sexualised. She's a biker and racer - the character was hardly going to be a voluptious damsel in distress.
I am hopeful that I nailed the correct tone for the image, even though a lot of the anatomy (hands especially) is incorrect.
Second attempt at the Vehicle Design project.
Learning from mistakes, I went into this one with a solid plan in mind. I wanted to create a vehicle capable of traversing a desert wasteland and on being souped up for races. They would be used by a "mad max" like tribal road gang.
I chose sandy colours and big chunky tires for this reason, and included lots of spikes because road gangs love spikes.
The lineart could use work - I hadn't used my tablet for a while and as such it was very shaky.
The seat is also wrong, the perspective is off.
