3.) Display of Color: The renderings of the vehicles will be used to evaluate the sketches and select colors for the vehicles in the conceptual phase.

#9 Amani ATG concept demonstrator vehicle by Allwyn
Inspired from complex volumes and created by intersection of several meticulously sketched lines, the car exudes surface perfection deemed for any modern luxury car. All the requirements positioned by the client, Amani, are addressed with the good accuracy over sketches for easy implementation in Alias (or any other surface modelling software), Unique style with Amani exclusive Front Grill and with cool gray tones for the exterior to resonate a feel of sophistication.
Amani is advised to lock down the volumes in Alias and once it’s done, it can employ any realistic rendering software to choose the perfect color tones for production vehicle/Prototype as any decision over a particular body color during the concept development phase may or may not end up as good as expected when it comes out through fabrication. As a rule of thumb, ‘’Any car which looks good in Grey is designed good’’, and hence I’ve carried out the entire design process in gray as any professional would do.

#1 Electric Concept Car Layout by Decker
Sorry, don't have a lot of experience with surface modeling in my portfolio. I am use to component, manufacturing, and product design and there isn't a whole lot of car manufacturing where I am from to learn the art. I made an attempt but have a lot to learn in this area. I can bring my manufacturing experience and artistic talent to the table but it will take some time to come up to speed when it comes to surface modeling. This example is created using solid modeling techniques.

We have announced the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for the contest as of July 15, 2016. The entries were evaluated on the design criteria that was posted on the cadcrowd.com website with the original contest.

ATG will include the results and entries of the contest by including the galleries that were submitted in the documentation of the conceptual phase. The contests will be highlighted on our company website in the future.

ATG will encourage the designers that participated in the contest to continue to develop their ideas, skills and ability to sketch in 3-D an automotive concept. If you have more ideas involving your design, please forward any new sketches or gallery images to my e-mail address.

Thank you.

I feel that Amani group is pushing all the process from exterior to interior and with Surface model on a single designer. That is not efficient and is no surprise to me that it didn't work. I would strongly suggest Amani to pic a design based on its design substance and PAY the winner. Later Amani can post a separate design contest with prepaid prize to develop the interior and like wise, a surface model, separately. This would enable a constant growth in the development process and a confirmed delivery of the final design on a scheduled date.

What's going on with this contest it’s almost 4 months since you created this contest. Nice track record 2 design contest in 4 months and none of them is finished. Squeezing more and more the same contest to get more work is not the right thing to do. Is it going to finish this time or you will extend for next month also? Are you going to pay this time? I am a Professional designer with 10+ year experience and professional world doesn’t work this way. Shame on you Amani Technology Group.

We will be selecting a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entry based on the evaluation criteria and we will request that the designers continue to develop their ideas or images for the automotive concepts. If the entry submitted is an entry that shows a classic and futuristic luxury electric vehicle, we will review whether or not to request the designer's help with the conceptual phase.

As a designer, who would have an entry that placed, you would have an opportunity to work with ATG and we will at the end of the contest provide the next steps for the project and available jobs.

Is there a potential of working long term with the automotive firm if the design is selected or is it just a one time project?

Hi Moses, I’ve added an extra PNG containing the Vehicle dimensions you’ve asked for in addition to troubleshooting the corrupt files in this 2nd entry of mine. Please use Photoshop version 2015 or above while opening the files as using earlier version may result in corrupt file error message if the tools that I might have used in those renderings are not supported. I’ll also contact the support to remove my previous entry as it may be an unnecessary iteration of what I’ve now uploaded. Thank you!

We will be having another design contest in one week and you will be able to develop the previous entry.

The objective of the conceptual phase is to develop a vehicle that will represent quality, luxury and the name brand of Amani. The contest should help with having ideas that will help with the marketing strategy.

The new design contest should be posted within a week.

Thanks.

As requested, I did consider implementing the hood ornament. But as I did my usual background research for designs and inspirations for your car, I came to know the fact that any protruding object/ornament in front of the car either directly above or near any crumple zones (say, a Bumper) is legally banned as per the pedestrian safety laws enforced in western countries and in majority of Asian countries. Hence I decided go ahead designing the car without involving the ornament.
