It is complete, at last! :happybounce: This is my entry for the Fiat contest and I sincerely hope you like it. :) I have worked on it for a month, 2-5 hours every day except for the 6 days I spent in Italy doing research. That is to say, this is the drawing I worked on longer than anything else, ever, in my life. Therefore, I'm very proud of it. The style is inspired by my idea of what Italy must look like, which was confirmed when I actually got there (it turned out to look EXACTLY the same as I thought it would!) You can see the influence of several beautiful Italian cities here, especially Venice, Florence, Padova, Sorrento and Rome.
Now you ask how I got the idea. Well, the answer is this: I love Fiat 500. It is a tiny car designed to roam the tiny streets of Italy and look stylish while doing so. Its design corresponds to the retro-looking Italian architecture and fits in perfectly. Fiat 500L is, on the other hand, a big version of the Fiat 500, which can, therefore, carry Italy in its boot. This idea came to me the morning after the contest was anounced so I set off to work immediately. I drew the whole perspective on a printed template which I then scanned and coloured on my tablet. The colouring took me longest, but I think I have learned a great deal from the whole experience. I have found Italy very inspiring and it actually encouraged me to consider studying architecture. :)
If this was to be put on an actual car (and that would be the dream of my dreams' dreams!), the car should be of some nice colour, preferably sky-blue, but yellow and orange would do, too. ;p
Again, I really hope you like it, and may you all have a great week! :heart:

My entry for the More FIAT - More Imagination contest.
Decided to make it looks like it would look like if it was mine, spraypainted on the back, and full of spraypaint,
getting a bigger car, it's to have more paint in it, no ?!
Now fingers crossed, it could be an awesome opportunity to start living doing my art.

And many others street art...

My entry into FIAT's contest; A good car can handle any terrain and any it urban or rural...From my limited knowledge of Miami, although it is one of America's greatest urban cities, it's known for its cleanliness and pro-nature outlook...despite being positioned in the wake of previous and potential hurricanes.

I made four separate final pieces for my windows (full pieces in links below) ;
- Clean Calm City (windows 1 and 4) -…
- Vortex (window 2) -…
- City vs Nature (Main/Rear window 3) -…
- Cataclysm (Window 5) -…

I produced them all with a series of physical mark making, followed by digital effects to combine them.

My main aim was to produce a busy design, that if made physically, the audience would have to peer at, and view in parts...too close and it becomes just the marks, too far and it loses focus, like a city itself...

-You can try and overview it, but in the end you only see a few parts of it.
But then again wouldn't it be so much easier in an awesome car hmmm? *coughs FIAT*


-I have a nasty feeling I'm going to have to reupload and produce a new version...the conversion between the incredibly large window template to the tiny submission template is not easy...the shapes aren't exact either ^^; But meh~
