anti gravity  thing by flaketom anti gravity  thing by flaketom
Well it should have become an anti gravity racer for the googlesketchup group community project... I meant it to be totally harmless, without any guns or whatever, but then someone talked about huge big weapons and all of a sudden this happend.
Think I will have to throw all the weapons out and give it a new paint job....
hmmmm.

This reminds me MLRS from C&C, Tiberiun Sun 2. There it was hover with rockets. This one is awesome.

It may be a bit green and militaristic... and a bit DAKKA... But which race car would I put my money on? Well... THE ONE WITH GUNS! :P

It does look a bit militaristic, more like a C22nd version of a LRDG jeep! Maybe it's the colour scheme as much as the weaponry tho.
That said, it's absolutely awesome, and the Wipeout vehicles were fairly heavily armed, too.

Thank you very much! Yeah it's definitely to militaristic, but I just did the race car version of it...

Remove - guns.
Add + Blue paint and Shelby Cobra Racing badges.
Equals = Awesome. :P

All in all though, reminds me of a really awesome version of Wipeout. ;)

WOW. Seems tragic that you'd be caught up in requirements for a project when what you have going here is so damn cool so far! Must salute you for following your muse! :salute:

My initial response to shape is that it almost looks like it could be an aquatic submersible craft, but that's obviously way off the mark given the weapon systems. Apparently, the weapons aren't supposed to be there, but, but.... they look so good! :eager:

The bonus new is that you're designing an anti-grav racer, which is such a great genre, and so much fun to play with! [link] :P

Kind of agree w/ Newton above; that you should finish your racer, but continue to allow this militarized version to grow on its own as well. Hate to think of either idea not getting a fair shake.

Plenty of anti-grav racing games where ships carry weapons anyway. And besides, I love thinking about racing vehicles converted into a military role -like a Dakar rally 4x4 tweaked out by mercenaries or something. :D Definitely have pondered that very subject w/ an anti-grav racer in mind.

No matter what, the exercise has taken you to some cool places already. Whatever happens, I'll be looking forward to the results.

Thanks for the note, BTW. Will get back to you on that later. :wave:

Thanks and especially thanks for your patience with the mecha, but I definitely was somehow stuck with it (not because of your sketches as they are worked out really great, but because of some mental stupidity of mine:P ).
Seen your racers and really like them, aslo like your style of presentation, as that's a part I'm really bad with, as my photoshop skills are none existent and I'll have to do everything with Illustrator...)
Already thought about elaborating the militarized version but there really isn't a thing I can add/change, at least what I can think of right now. Maybe later. but first I'll try to get my muse to work on the mecha, as it is definitely time for that.:D.
Ok so see ya around.

You know, since you mention it, I think the military version is fine as is. :nod: Doesn't need anything new really. Altho, if you like, I can think of an easy way to put a cool camo pattern on it for you. :D Maybe a nice thank you for your work on the WWII mech. ;)

Also, hope you find this site interesting: [link]

You can click on different teams and check out their craft (language should be set to Deutsch for you). Love the graphic style and presentation here. Wipeout series= always my favorite anti-grav racing inspiration.

Thanks and ooooooh yes I'd love to have a nice camo pattern on it. Take my soul for it! But wait (if you have the time and never ever feel under any constraint to do it) till I'm done with the mech!

Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010
No problemo, Tom. And no need to wait till the mech is done either. It's just something that would be very fun and easy for me to do.

All I need is for you to is 1) pick an ideal pose you like 2) send me a hirez image of this vehicle in Black and White Line WITH shading, rather like these: [link] From there, it is a fairly simple thing to drop in color w/ photoshop. Ultimately, I plan on doing a similar thing w/ the finished WWII mech art, so it could be good practice. The finish might look something like this: [link] But the camo color could be anything really. Not just green or brown: [link]

Thanks, looks everything great!
here are the black and white images, I think the lower is better one! Hope they're alright if not tell me.

Also played around with some camo schemes but they're all not that good.

Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010
I agree that the lower one is a better option. Is there any way you can create a higher resolution image of just that one? The lines are a tiny bit pixelated and show some 'stepping' when I zoom in close. Just would like to make it the best quality possible. ;)

The camo schemes you did so far aren't bad at all. I could play around and come up w/ something similar. Or just tune the colors on some of my old custom camo textures and pop those in. Also I should come up w/ some simple background that would fit w/ the colors (cuz I need lots of practice in that area).

*Been sick for almost a week now * zonks into a brief coma* Catch ya later, Tom!

First of all I hope your gonna be better soon!
Will try to get a better pic (don't know if .png or .tif is a better file format?).
I rather have you do one of your own, as I like them more. The ones I took were just the easiest way. I added some textures and took the digital/edgy patterns as they work best on sketchup models (at least that's what I think).
And there's gonna be a background? GREAT!
Again! Get well soon!:)

Only issue with the firearms is their location with regards to the maneuver/thruster array wings. They need to hang below them or stick out above them.

Awesome design. A good racer, and a decent replacement for the military light attack vehicles (which gives them some air cover like a small helicopter)

Yeah you right with the gun in the front,I had in on the upper side, so it would be able to move freely, but it looked awkward, so I thought what the heck and put it beneath the fuselage. And putting it further down would look even more...hmmm. stupid.
