The above piece is a design I did on one of the days (we each had 3 hours a day, for five days), and it turned out pretty good. I wanted to demo my process for creating images based on photos, and it seemed to go down well, I had lots of positive feedback from the people in the crowd.
It's a 6 wheeled post-apocalyptic type survivalist vehicle. I like to imagine a post apocalyptic scenario where the scant remnants of humanity that survive some earth wide future cataclysm are the product of prior widespread genetic engineering, so are super smart and capable. Humanity isn't ready to come together into large communities yet, and instead highly independent solitary types roam the depleted landscape like tigers stalking prey in their territory. Their vehicles, while being cobbled together from scavenged materials, aren't the usual matte black rusty cars with spikes, but instead well engineered and capable things, with crane arms, articulated suspension, armoured v-hulls, and non-pneumatic tires. Makes for an interesting vehicle design anyways!
I'll post more work from the workshop over the next little while...
