Olivier Gamiette is a self-taught designer from Paris, France. With the main interest of bringing new exciting ideas to life Olivier today works for Peugeot as Senior Designer in Paris. In this project he showed us how he rendered children's sketches into incredible car designs. It's awesome to see the evolution of the basic sketches to the final result and how much of the basic concept kept unchanged. Oliview brought six children's car sketches to life by rendering them as a prize for the 'Draw Me The Car of 2020' design competition, launched in collaboration with the french children's magazine Okapi.The six 9-14 year old winners – Clement, Thomas, Tom, Lena, Leo and Gaspard – were able to see their dream cars realized with my personal photoshop rendering method. I presented the first placed winner, Clément, with a 270mm by 140mm model of his design at an awards ceremony held at the cPeugeot's design center in Velizy, France. I shared with the young winners my thoughts and inspiration behind their designs. . It was totally amazing and so magical for them to discover their sketch reinterpreted in a realistic rendering drawing. They were very proud and some of them already know they would like to become car designers .. Details For more information visit: http://www.behance.net/gamiette

Escape Artist took the good old Formula 1 liveries and implemented them on the new cars that were being used this 2013 season. The result is a mix of retro x new. As we all can agree the retro liveries had so much character and bring such good memories. Enjoy! For more visit Escape Artist. We've been spending our evenings transplanting some of the best liveries from the last couple of decades of F1 onto a 2013 car... Maybe the McLaren would go a bit faster with this old livery!
Today I was reading about HDR and decided to get some inspiration on the subject. I am a super fan of HDR photos and we've been posting about it since the very first year of the blog. It's incredible to see how popular HDR has become and I'm still amazed by the visual style this technique can give to photos. Atomicpixal demonstrates this beautifully with some HDR photos of cars that look like legit illustrations of hot rods. I have been a Freelance Photographer for a very long time. I enjoy post processing images as well as taking them. I moved to Menifee two years ago from Oceanside and I love the area. I also collect antique cameras. I am an old darkroom photographer that has been converted to the digital world. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
If you are fan of nice cars and good movies, chances are you have seen these cars on the movies before. But now they are completely illustrated by Spanish graphic designer Jesús Prudencio. Enjoy! For more from Jesús Prudencio visit behance.net/jesusprudencio.
I was reading my news in the end of the day today then I saw this beautiful photo of a batmobile and the titled saying "Cars we love". It turned out it was a series of digital photography of cars that we really love, from the Batmobile of the 1989 Batman movie to the iconic DeLorean from The Back to the Future movie. If yo like cars, and photography you will love this collection. This is the first two of an ongoing series I called 'Cars we love'. I intend to photograph the cars or 'mobiles' that made an impact on our lives through movies. I wanted to begin with my two favorites, more to come soon These photos were take by Cihan Ünalan, a photographer and digital artist from Istanbul, Turkey.

I grew up watching F-1 races on the weekends, my favorite driver was Ayrton Senna and he used to be part of the McLaren team back in the day. I remember that one of my favorite things to do in school was to draw his F1 racing cars. I also remember when McLaren announced their first car and since then they've been pushing the limits of card design. The new McLaren MP4-12C is a proof of that. This post tries to show not the car only but the work of Thomas Moeller who took this amazing photos. For the launch of the new website cars.mclaren.com we got the opportunity to spend 4 full days shooting the MP4-12C at the McLaren Product Centre in Woking, England. We also spent time across the McLaren Technology Centre, shots the new McLaren P1, and long quiet evenings exploring and experiencing the amazing space that these cars are produced in. We aimed to bring a much more luxurious, artistic, and elegant feeling to the shoot and get creative within the constraints and limitations of the space. Thomas Moeller is a London-based Creative Director with over 15 years experience across US, UK, European and other international markets - currently Creative Director at SapientNitro London, the world’s largest integrated marketing & technology firm.

Icons embody certain qualities that represent something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning, from a bottle of Coca Cola, the red tab on a pair of Levi's to the smooth lines and timeless headlights of a Porsche. Today on Abduzeedo we bring you a stunning gallery featuring a vintage 3D render of a Porsche 550 Spider. This beautiful icon has maintained its longevity and design integrity over the years, evolving ever so slightly to deliver each new generation the Porsche it dreamed. I grew up in Brazil driving around in my dad's VW Beetle born from the same designer, Ferdinand Porsche, and have always had an obsession with the design of this car. One day I'll own one but for now I can only post about my dream car and channel my inner Hank Moody. - "If you analyse the function of an object, its form often becomes obvious." - Ferdinand Alexander Porsche When you spend all that time creating one really detailed 3d model, it only seemed logical to create a series. This time we wanted to explore closeups and use depth of field and bokeh effects - additive studios About Additive Studios Additive is a post-production studio based in London, Comprising two talented CG artists / retouchers (Matt and Pete) with over 20 years’ experience between them (Saddington & Baynes, Um CGI and Solid), you benefit from tightly costed estimates (no flashy offices or leggy secretaries, sorry) and the undivided attention of the two key people.

When I was a kid I used to love to draw cars, from the iconic VW Beetle to Formula 1. I had so much fun, especially in school, where apparently, was the most inspiring and creative moment for me to zone out of the day's lesson and sketch. Nowadays we have a bevy of tools right at our fingertips and with computer and 3D software we can go that extra step and make really amazing car renderings in one fell swoop. The idea of this post is to feature some really cool 3D cars created by Jan Mokrzecki, an extremely talented digital artist from Poland with a great portfolio of beautiful car renderings. Bentley Mulsanne Jaguar D-Type Longnose 1954 Shelby Cobra 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-500 Eleanor Plymouth GTX 1970 Dodge Charger 1971 Hummer H1 2004 For more information about Jan Mokrzecki visit http://www.behance.net/janmokrzecki

Today I decided to make a change and make a review instead of a feature post. This amazing opportunity came to me from car designer Arvind Ramkrishna from Driven Mavens, he gladly sent me one copy of his DVD now in sale "How to Draw Cars Now". I really had a fun time going through his DVD and this is my review. What started as a Kickstarter Project hugely became into a successful story about Arvind getting his knowledge out for aspiring designers and drawing hobbyists to automotive design and illustration using markers, pencils, gouache paints and of course Photoshop. A great mix of modern and old school styling into your work. To find out more about Arvind Ramkrishna and Driven Maven, you can check out his website / blog at DrivenMavens.com, also check out their website HowToDrawCarsNow.com or just like them on Facebook. Review With more than 4 hours of video content with 4 ebooks, Arvind really takes you on a ride of instructional content and you clearly see the focus is on How to Draw Cars and with a complete workshop on the matter. With loads of training exercises and reference, what strikes me more is that Arvind kept the old good ways of drawing with pencils and markers. Since with all the technology around us, I am in agreement that the best way to learn. One thing I really enjoyed was how easy Arvind took us along the way in the videos. He has a way of explaining things with such a educational and inspiring to work more on your drawings. Of course, it will take a lot of practice but I truly think you can produce some amazing sketches and renderings in the automotive design.

When we have successfully got our steady lives, what will be the next target? To be more comfortable. That is to get a larger apartment and to buy a better automobile. So it is understandable that why the competition among auto distributors becomes fiercer and fiercer. In order to promote the brand culture and unique advantages, auto distributors conduct all kinds of campaigns as price cut, auto-expo, and of course advertising. All aspects of auto, including energy saving, stable performance and enhanced power can always be shown by advertisers in clever and impressive ways. We have to admit that making the inanimate body---auto to be the leading role of each piece really brings romantic atmosphere into the bitter selling contest. Here are several good examples, enjoy it and if we miss any other good ones, please feel free to let me know.

This is not the first time Abduzeedo is giving space to some concept cars images and for sure this won"t be the last post about this around here. Concept cars are always evolving and designers keep working with this evolution to present us new projects and prospects from time to time. These cars I"ve putted here are futurist, great shaped and pretty attractive. Designing this kind of vehicle demands talent and a bit of visionary perspective from the designer and this is what I admire most about this type of work. So let"s check out some of these cars ... enjoy.
