This post focuses of the Design Ideas for the Their Pride and Joy.
The first image is the first set of the design ideas that have been created for the Their Pride and Joy Narrative. The first few ideas were based on basic modes of water transport due to the fact that I believed starting from origins of water transport. So the first three drawings within this image are boats and rafts, I did this to help me get started on the water based transportation ideas and later their development. These forms of transportation may seem really old and not very effective but they actual work a lot better than modern means, not in a sens of speed but in a sense of keeping the user dry and making it hard to sink. The next two drawings at the bottom of the image are that of a Submarine and a Surf Board, now a chose a submarine due to the fact that in may not be a boat per say but the idea focuses on means of underwater and above water transportation that can easily be stored.
The next image is another idea for the water based transportation, this time I have focused more on the combination of the ability to travel on both the water and the underneath it. This is displayed on all the sketches within the second image, I tried a wide range of variation of known water transportation to inspire my creations for the boat section of the narrative. The first sketch on this image is supposed to be a jet pack/raft of sorts that can skim over the waters surface and when desired to go underwater connect it to a the back and flick a switch and the device will flip over and convert into a underwater jet pack. The next image is based on the design of modern submarine and a torpedo, This is specifically designed to travel above and under water but it focuses mainly on the under part. The next sketch is one of my favorites due to the fact that it is a miniature sub that travels very quickly again both above and under the water, I designed this based on a old WW2 Sub and some modern scuber gear I saw, the purpose of this boat is that similar to a water ski except it can be all purpose in water.
The next image is that of boats think that I should maybe go back to the original concept of boats, so at first I tried a more modern appearance with the appearance all though my favorite one which is the biggest boat came out looking quite futuristic. The first two sketches which are smallest out of the three where originally based on a small dingy or fishing boat that could be considered a cheap and easy to keep compared to other forms of boats that involve a lot of external features that a boat doesn’t necessarily need. The Futuristic boat is a combination of a speedboat and a sports boat from the Olympics. The reason why I combined the two into this design is that I fought that combining the two would create a unique form that all for filled the purpose that it was created for really well.
The next image is moving onto the land based transportation, the first sketch is based on the idea of a Go Kart but the original design has been used for this sketch. The reason why I based the first sketch on this design is because I though it might be a good Idea for the pride and joy mainly due to the fact that it may seem like a father is building the go kart for his son or daughter and it has taken them a very long time that is why it is their pride and joy. The next image is based on the original racing car and car designs, I chose this design due to the fact that the old fashion cars both Racing and Standard all had unique designs back in the past due to the fact that back then people didn’t understand the aerodynamics so the appearance of all their cars were that of been unique. The actual sketch is very interesting in a sense it does appear aerodynamic which I wasn’t in particularly aiming for but at the same time it still appears like a old fashion car which was my main aim when drawing it. The car is supposed to work like a standard car fill it with it’s preference of fuel and it can run all through when I drew it the aimed time period changed for some reason I can see this car in the 1930’s and most people that I have shown this too can agree.
The next image is again based on land vehicle based transport, the first sketch is again based on the go kart but this time the idea is slightly different. What I mean by this is that the design is that of a custom built original Go Kart but it isn’t powered that way in fact the power source of this go kart is that of a standard petrol engine found in the Modern Go Kart Design. So the aim of the first sketch is that of a hybrid of the vintage and modern to create something unique. The reason why I did this was not only to see what would happen if you combined the new and old but to see how well the how built box like go kart would come out and it certain draws the attention of the target audience according to the actual target audience due to the fact that it appearance is just a box but for some reason it catches the attention. The next sketch is based of that of a modern car and I will agree that it wasn’t my most creative design but I fought I might go back to the original designs to see what would happen if I drew it, I might take this to development and see what can be done to make it more appealing.
The Next image is my sketches attempting more futuristic based land travel, my first sketch within this was a attempt at doing a modern car but with a more futuristic appearance now it worked to some extent and what I mean by this is that the car still appeared to be some what modern and the design wasn’t very creative I will admit but it gave me the chance to work on vehicles and at least have some form of Idea if I chose to develop it later on. The final land based sketch is my favorite and the reason for this is that it may not be a car pair say, but the focus of this design is a fast means of getting around the open road and in cities which is why it is aerodynamic and small in shape because it allows the bike/scooter hybrid to weaving through traffic very quickly and allows it to travel fast on the open road. The Design also appears quite futuristic which is what I was aiming for with this section of sketches, the reason it looks futuristic is due to the fact that the design of it such as the roof that goes over it and where the wheels are placed don’t appear like they would in a past or modern bike design and this helps make the bike feel more futuristic.
Next I focused on air transport now I did this by looking up various planes mainly modern jet fighters, which influences the designs here all though not exactly. This can be seen in the first sketch which has the shape of combination of both modern and old fashion planes such as the Spit Fire and a Modern fighter jet. The idea just occurred while I was working all though I have never drawn a plane before so it was mainly a attempt to draw one. The purpose of this design was that the back engine could provide a speed of mach 1 and the wings helped like all planes keep stability during flight all though in this case the engines on thew wings helps control the speed as well during turns. The next Image was a more aerodynamic approach by attempting to streamline most for the modern fighter jet design even more making ti appear some what more futuristic but at the making it look like a giant bird, which was unintentionally so this design will be dropped from the development.
The next sketches are based of the pelicans from the Halo Franchise, both ships are designed to carry massive content be that of supplies or that of humans the ship is designed to carry many times it’s own weight. The first sketch is designed to move quickly as well that why It’s wings are the way that they are in the design and the front of the ship is designed to give a wide view of what is front of the ship. The next design very similar to the one above although this one is based on that of the one above but it is also designed to submerge as well allowing underwater rescues as well that is why it has no wings on the side but has a giant one on the top.
By looking at this design you can see some similarities between the pelican design and that of my rescue and carrier designs but at the same time the designs vary hugely in difference such as the pelican is a lot bigger and has weapons and huge get engines attached to it. While my own carriers designs are based only on rescue as they have small jet engines that can also sustain water travel like a biplane or allow underwater exploration. The carriers I also designed do not military applications to them unlike the original Pelicans and have windows designed to allow a clear birds eye view of the terrain that the carrier is flying above unlike the pelicans windows which are incredibly hard to look out of.
The bike that I have of my design research is the one that inspired my futuristic Bike/Scooter Design, now it may look like I got no evidence of my design from this image but I in fact did, due to the fact that I used the bikes aerodynamic design for my own bikes design, I did this because the image of the bike is focused soley on speed and due to this it gave me the futuristic idea as well as the use the bike of the future could have with such a small size and shape similar to that here.
