Audi coupe by Nick Au

Trying his hand at describing surfaces with reflections, Nick has been quite successful on this Audi proposal. The cars wedge shape blends dramatically into the dark background and the rear lower reflects the green foreground. Bright lights in the environment are reflecting in the bodywork and running fluidly along the surface contours. The colour overlays added at later stages give an instant feeling of form and make the design that much easier to digest at first glance so credit to Nick for being bold, expressive and making it work.

Although mostly done well, the bright white reflections could be toned down away from the near corner of the car. It is generally best to save the highest-contrast for the area nearest the viewpoint. The highlight around the rear wheelarch flare is the most effective on this sketch, the others would benefit from slightly cleaner shapes. Great effort though.
