Concept Art - Scout 02
So here's the scout bike. Pretty much. Those wheels are a little wonky, I realize. I wanted this angle, and usually I draw the angle with what I have for ellipse templates...but not this time. The magic of digital will help me fix those in the next step.
I wanted something to evoke the light cycles from TRON, so I threw a pair of rollbars connecting the back to the fairing to create the arc in profile. Further stealing automotive design concepts from Syd Mead, I used no axle wheels, as I will with the APC. It's just cool. And I saw they used that concept for Kirk's moto in the new Star Trek movie. Because it's cool!
All right, on to the marker comp...
