ARRGHHH... I can't find the final-color version of this design... but anyway, this gives you the idea... for Metropolis, I wanted it to still feel like the 50's/60's idyllic America... the cars all have Art Deco shapes and moldings, and look like they are made out of pure steel... heavy as hell, but still with elegant 'lines' ...basically, Metropolis has money to spare, so they can afford 'pretty' cars for their cops!
... the final color version was done so that the car had lots of chrome and the paint was all pretty and polished!
... and here's Gotham's version of a Riot-tank/personnel carrier..... I also wanted it to look like a 70's suv to match the 'cruiser'.... this thing is VERY VERY armored, so it needs to have a HUGE engine to move it.... This thing is probably LOOOOUD as hell, so you'd know the 'sh&ts hit the fan' somewhere if you hear it's engines from a mile away!
This one, I wanted it to be TOTALLY contrasting to Metropolis' squad car... in my mind, Gotham is so corrupt that it never has money to buy new equipment for it's Cops, so they have to make due and fix equipment and vehicles they've had for 20 years, BUT they've gotten REALLY good at it!
Instead of doing the typical 'Mobster' car we typically see in Gotham, I wanted to do muscle cars from the 70's instead... mean 'gas guzzlers' that came straight out of MadMax or any Dirty Harry or Charles Bronson movie.... these cars aren't meant to be pretty, BUT muscular and scary as they chase ur a$$!
