Hover Truck dannyn72

The Hover Truck combines modern technology with the classic styling of a bygone era. The truck rides on a magnetic cushion using opposing electromagnets located in the four corners of the truck. This allows the truck to go over any terrain without hesitation.

I like your idea of a hover craft that looks like 1950's pick up truck. This sounds very interesting to me but could be very challenging as well. Your sketches shows you attempt to do a retro truckish hover craft but I would encourage you to push your boundaries beyond what we have seen as far as form is concerned. Stay away from putting detail like wing mirrors and door handles for the time being and challenge yourself to think of a retro hover craft that looks modern enough for 2030 (How it is going to effect the proportions? What are the cues from the past you want to keep so that it is a new avatar of the older one? ). You can Refer the history of (VW Beetle, Porsche 911, Chevrolet Camaro) and draw inspiration to build something futuristic going from 1950's to the 2030. Try and work on a story that helps fitting into the brief provided. What scenario, how and who is going to use ? Hope this helps,
Very much keen to see your next set of sketches. All the best !
