Notes:
Since the invention of space travel Humans have slowly ventured out amongst the stars colonising planets as they go. This scene is set on Orion 5, a fairly large planet mostly made up of desert landscapes.
Orion 5 Rapid Response units were set up to be first on the scene for people in need of help. These large cruisers are equipped to carry medical supplies and equipment at high speeds across the desert plains.
I decided that I wanted to keep my vehicle 'human' in design and hopefully create something fairly grounded in reality that might been seen in the not too distant future.
Created using Blender 2.49 and Photoshop. There's bit of a wip thread here if anyone is interested

Ha ha ha! Thanks for clearing that up Dave.I normally do quite a bit of PP as my 3d skills are great, slowly getting better though.

PP=PostProductionas in photoshopping. Sorry my bad, I have a habit of shortening phrases.I really like the style! It shows a nice flare to it!

Hi Dave, thanks for the comments.I'm probably being stupid but what do you mean by the PP? HotWheels are cool, was probably inspired by them somewhere amongst other things. The main inspiration came from the work of Syd Mead, his work was the theme for the competition.Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the comments guys!@ DrGonzo - Yeah the competition I created this for was judged by Syd Mead and part of the competition was titled 'in the style of Syd Mead'. That's one of the reasons why I kept bit of an old school feel to it.

Hi Robert, thanks for the comments. Yeah the plan was to give it more of an illustrative feel. I rendered out different passes from Blender (toon, ao, line etc) and comped them together in photoshop using different layer styles.

I like the flow of the vehicle, and LOVE the post-processing. I'm not that much of a photoshopper myself. It gives the whole image a comic-feeling.
