I'm not too big into just drawing up large renders lately, just packing a whole bunch of sketches on a page... So this isn't really the most recent, but I hope you like it

This is my bid, I like it because it is different and I have shown a complete design.

So this is the biggest project I worked on this year. It is the car I did during my internship at Mercedes-Benz'.

Although I don't really like the final design I'm quite happy with the concept. As you can see it is about a compact van (I very much believe Europe's still waiting for a trendy micro bus la VW T1). There are two hollow benches/ seat rows in the car where you can stuff in long objects. When you start the car they get fixed by belts.

Furthermore the car features "Friendtronic". When activated, not used seats are illuminated green so people on the street looking for a ride can recognize free capacities in your vehicle and join, increasing efficiency of the car.

I didn't do much this year, was busy with other stuff. Hopefully next year I'll be more in the game!

Definitely my best design this year, the one I spent the most time on by far. As for the sketch I wouldn't say it's much better than my 'Dot' city car from March but I'm satisfied with it.

Iota is a brand I recently made up myself. I was choosing between this one and another, but I guess this one looked better. Iota Iggi, a sporty mini truck with many futuristic innovative features.

completely forgot this was done this year, definitely one of my favorites to work on.

Wow AXIS that is a great design man! I haven't seen that one before.

You can imagine my shock when i realized I had only posted three Quimera renders in 2009...for some reason I think this one's my favorite. The signature says '08 but I posted it in January.
