You don’t need to be a good driver to love concept cars; in fact you don’t even need to be a driver at all to love them. They are all around us and from a young age we have been drawn to them. From small doodles sketched at the back of our school exercise books to great big paintings of cars as toddlers. It’s easy to see that we have always been inspired by the art of concept cars.
As the years have gone by modern technology has become more innovative allowing designers to create advanced car capabilities, consumer product developments and other features needed in concept car design. This process involves a suite of software, imaginative thinking and creativity.
Multiple designs are created to show all sides of the cars interior and exterior. Every angle must be illustrated; this is to avoid any bugs during the later rendering process. There are many programs out there used to create concept car sketches, creative professionals use tools from Autodesk Alias, Computer aided design (CAD) and Adobe Photoshop.
There is no guarantee of manufacturing a concept car design; most are usually deemed as not road worthy, but the creativity and skill exposed amplifies how talented car designers are. Their imaginative, futuristic concepts wow audiences all around the world and give us a glimpse in to the future.
