I started doing another batmobile and my brain was all like "gently caress this, i have a better idea" so here's some kind of weird zonda thing or something.



I was thinking of recording what state of mind i was in when i made some of these things, but unfortunately i think 90% would be some combination of drunk, painfully tired, and suicidally depressed.

Well, your timing was impeccable.

I love doing this stuff. I keep it all on it's own window and hammer one out when the thought hits me. The easier ones like the Jag "actual shooting brake and not just a wagon" or the corvair only take like 2-3 minutes. When i see the result it triggers the thought for the next one, and even my failures create new inspiration.

As far as taking a break, it was because i figured they wouldn't let me move my whole rig into the hospital. I figured right. I had it out with a doctor who made some pretty horrible assumptions that i had to squeeze out of him, but i met a bunch of really awesome people in there, so I'm doing much better in general. Thanks everybody for your caring.

The later models of that suburban, however, had stacked headlights, and the suburban has always been about big grilles and big headlights and would have more likely used design language from the eldorado. (I started with a really low res image with this one ).

I don't think you give yourself enough credit. Your quick Escalade is better than his published one. I like the stacked headlights and the smaller mirrors, it just needs... something... in the side to make it say Cadillac. Maybe running boards and flares, with fender skirts on the rear.

You should absolutely email him a link to this thread.

Yeah, I'm probably a little more critical of my work because i can see the mistakes as i make them. If i wanted to be a fancy instagram artist with a watermark or whatever i would probably spend a lot more time. Stupid things like this only take about 30 seconds.



But they lead to even dumber things that are more involved, but are gonna be sooooooooooo worth it.........

Instagram is kind of horrible in the way it puts all the numbers right in your face and stuff. I can see why kids lose their minds, as they can now put a firm number on their popularity . It's also a nice little dopamine hit when a talented artist likes something i made and i can see how that could become a need rather than a nice little surprise if i was doing this for anything but my own amusement. Still, with the way i half-assedly save all my files and the common failure of image hosting sites, it's good to have these all in one permanent place. Some day aliens are gonna find it and think we were cooler than we actually are.

For gifs, use one of the online gif editors and adjust the timing between frames until it feels right. They usually have a preview before you commit. Might be able to do a smoother fade transition on some of the fancier editors.
