A new collection of TKP-Deco Wallriders. Wallriders are a form of track bound vehicles native to the industrial and architectural planet Indus. Indus is a claustrophobic architectural environment so dense that these vehicles, more or less, evolved in response to that reality.
[Just to note, these are not flying cars, they're suspended on tracks between buildings. They may look like flying cars but are not, the wheels (like train wheels) are on the sides sticking out.]
Being the true age of Indus is unknown to it's inhabitants some of these vehicles can be very old and hobbled together. You can often see examples that are a mix of newer panels and rusted panels, etc. The doors on all these types of vehicles, generally, open up like a gull wing style or flip up due to the railing tracks obstructing them swinging outward. Occasionally some do have the more conventional type of doors but they have to be placed above the rail wall to clear it.
Most of the examples here do have clear windshields but many of these vehicles have the windscreen area completely covered with the interior either displaying the camera data from outside or displaying some form of diversionary entertainment. Due to the vehicles being suspended on tracks accidents are a rarity so minding the road, as it may be, is not required.
The various "fins" and antennae are sensors, communications gear, and, sometimes, enigmatic in purpose.
These were all rough pencil thumbnails I did some digital ink clean ups and added flat color in CS3. They're still what I consider roughs but considerably dolled up for presentation.
More to come...
