I am Rahul, a concept artist from India [Here's some of my work: http://www.rahulphilip.com
]. Have been a huge Rollcage fan for years and now I am super excited for GRIP [very inspired by concepts from Joe Sutton!] Got a really bad machine right now that barely plays Grip at its lowest setting, so at least I can do some fun concepts of cars that I would really like to see in GRIP
Pls let me know your picks, why you like them, and any feedback you might have; these are just sketches at this point, just exploring different options: design language, arrangement of tyres, exhausts, etc.. Thanks to Chris for the really cool idea for [R-4]! Any type of constructive feedback is highly welcome, both in terms of aesthetics and function. Feel free to be completely honest, I'll try to incorporate your suggestions into these and maybe come up with at least one decent car.
And if you have any other crazy concept ideas for cars [specially to make them feel alien] and you want me to give those a try, it'd be awesome! For instance, these can be : some crazy tyres you saw or thought of, cool rim ideas, some kind of abstract shape that would work great as windows up top, or simply ideas for different tyre arrangements that would work in-game. I would credit you for those ideas of course
Thanks! Here we go, some prelim designs. Most of these have vertical symmetry for the flips, while a few features are unique to one major side. The human scale is approximate at this point.
