A kid's drawing
The idea came up to my mind when I saw a little kid of 10 years old drawing a car on a piece of paper. I asked myself what was going on inside his head, what was he visualizing with his eyes that was not visible to the eyes of a grownup.
THE CHALLENGE WAS TO TAKE THAT BEAUTIFUL AND INNOCENT DRAWING AND TRANSLATE IT INTO SOMETHING MORE REALISTIC.
HOPEFULLY, I IMAGINED EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO DRAW BUT PROBABLY THAT IS NOT THE CASE BECAUSE THE EYES OF A KID ARE A WONDER OF IMAGINATION, IN BOTH CASES I HAD A LOT OF FUN, AND I HOPE YOU WILL TOO.
The first thing I did was to identify some key features around the car, and redrawing the same car being faithful to the first design.
THE PRONOUNCED WEELARCHES, THE OVERLAPPING FRONT FINS, A SINGLE ROOFLINE AND A DIAGONAL LINE ON THE WINDSCREEN ARE THE MAINS FEATURES OF THIS DESIGN.
NOT BEING ABLE TO DECIDE WHAT WAS THE CORRECT VISION OF THE KID I FINALLY DECIDED TO CREATE TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS. THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF DRAWING, ANYONE CAN SEE WHAT HE WANTS.
Compared to the first version, the second version looks for different design solutions and interpretations for some elements.
A BIG QUESTION I ASKED MYSELF WAS ABOUT THE DIMENSIONS OF THE WHEELS, SINCE IN THE ORIGINAL KID'S DRAWING THE REAR WHEEL WAS MUCH BIGGER THAN THE FRONT ONE.
FINALLY, I DECIDED TO KEEP THEM WITH THE SAME DIMENSION.
