WOW all nice work.

As the commented it is very nice to see the drawing develop. Many can lern from watching a video like in the 1h Car Challenge.

Its a bit harder to get the setup right but would love to see more drawing videos like that.

Keep it in for the next time?

It'll be like the unofficial Honorable Mentions (unless you name them officially Honorable Mentions).

Inquiring minds would like to know...
I will throw you this bone....you will need to hunt their entry down yourself. The top seven were in no particular order:

osuthar
bennybtl
kakapoopie
paul kirley
backass2
michael tintsman
svenson

Considering I do this 100% volunteer and my time is already limited, I am not going to dive into reviews of each one. Discussions here can provide that. Suffice it to say that if you didn't make the list and/or you're not getting much love from the boards, you have some improving to do. Improvement is both a subjective observation as well as a technical observation.

You_will_THROW? me this bone?

Okay, I have it....sharpened it.

Now, throwing it back.

By my calculations, at least 42 people, including myself, also volunteered 100% + a little extra in some cases. Correct me, if I'm wrong. No, wait, I don't want you to do any more work than you've volunteered for.

I don't need love from here. I'm like Al Bundy, married with children. I've got plenty of love which I feel you lack. It's now fairly obvious how you might treat someone trying to get love from you.

If you don't want to give you reviews, you don't have to. And you certainly don't have to be a poo poo head about it. Yeah, I said it.

If you're seriously going to treat me this way, you've obviously given up more free time than you can handle. I would recommend taking some time for yourself. Go attack someone's Vampire on Facebook.

I was more than appreciative of your work and of this website, so I can't see how you would think I would need more improvement. Count how many times you read "Core77". Did I not plug it enough? Let's see what YOU can do in an hour?

No, wait, I did it again, I asked for more than you can give.

As a multi-disciplinarian, I'd suggest you improve your manners.

congrats to the winners, I guess I have more work to do! This was a particularly fun challenge with the video, I agree with B-art that it would be great to have this required for the next one (or extra credit) as it really adds a great dimension to the 1hdc.

dbpuyo, take it how you want. Call it a power trip, whatever, no skin off my nose and I respect the fact that you're calling me out on the fact that I came off as condescending. I do appreciate everyone putting in the time for this little thing that was nothing more than a whim about a year ago. Its gone far beyond anything I expected it to. I hope the little bit of exposure it garners everyone helps out. Listening to Jerry's pedantic rants is not worth my time and I am not going to sugar coat it any other way. A diplomat I am not.


Jerry, I simply don't have time to go into why I don't think everyone didn't make the final 7. Beyond that, if you look at the work provided there are a few that were a tough call, but for the most part I would guess anyone can look at the work and make a pretty educated guess as to why it didn't make the cut.

congrats to the winners!!!

I will sum up why you didn't make it, judging by the 3 winners (congrats btw, I guess)

1. Use cool colors. This will hide an absolutely horrible sketch. Use really dramatic lighting, and pick contrasting colors. Then shade it so you can't see the awful linework.

2. Ignore perspective for more drama. Twist the front ends, make things lopsided, and don't worry about a sketch being clear about form...just make sure it has emotion.

3. Keep sketch as loose as possible. Don't refine it. Don't erase any of the draw through lines. Avoid anything tight in the linework or the marker/rendering section

Congrats to everyone, once again, and I don't mean this to offend anyone, it is just my observation based on the winners. Hopefully next time it will be a real actual contest, instead of an admin selecting which ones he likes best for judging. That kinda pisses me off actually.

I won!! yeah.
a few words to cash68, all your 3 points refer to my work obviously.
What was the theme for this competition again? something like sick ass car rendering. In 1 hour you can hardly put together a decent package, do Ideation sketches, draw trough all the views. So it all comes down to how effective the process and final drawing looks. I had a cintiq on my table as well, I knew if i use real media I had a real chance to win this, because it just looks more fun.

Kudos to Sven, i loved your sketch in the first place so very well done. I also say well done to those that got short listed.

Ip, wouldnt worry about having to justify yourself those who are aware that anything on core is done outside of working hours( which it seems some people do forget - you do have a job ) we are grateful for anything you provide. This 1HDC in particular was fantastic, simple to see pro designers draw sick ass car renderings... cant get much better than that so thanks. And the power tripping comment? pfff everyone should be grateful that the 1HDC even exists so far as im concerned power trip away.

Let's be honest here in regards to this shortlisting nonsense. it was quite obvious who the top 6-8 were. Compare them to your own work they were sick! I could of never of competed with them. They had the following attritubtes:

1) so much life and emotion
2) colours were dramatic
3) designs were either very conceptual, modern old school, or simply partly left to the imagination
4) perspective was tight
5) line quality and weight spot on
6) they were sick<- as the competition name suggested.

Benny mate i did think you were unlucky your interior sketch was awesome!

Anyway that all said well done IP, well done the top 3, and huge congrats to Sven, oh and well done to you.... i couldnt of even done that type of vehicle sketch in 20mins let alone 6min!

Something I just noticed is that nice blur that Vaughn used in their sketch. It gives a nice DOF effect, making it pop a little more. I have to try that.

This is definitely the 1 hr challenge that inspires me the most!

Here's what *I* defined as sick for my motivation:

Image
Take a real good look at this image. How much gasoline is being wasted from idling in traffic? How much time is going to waste idling in traffic? I can make an educated guess that most people would like to see some solutions to this problem.

Anyone can make sick-ass renderings so don't sell yourself short. The judge here obviously chose style over substance.

You know, not to sugar coat what is happening in the real world.

I *am* a diplomat for change whatever it may look like.

There are real problems taking place in the transportation industry. Whether its with energy, highway infrastructure, or the demand for fuel-efficient cars when the Big 3 have overspecialized in SUV's. Dealerships who have been in the business of selling cars which started as sick-ass renderings are now shuttering their doors.

I think Industrial Designers with a talent for making sick-ass renderings can also be a part of positive improvements in our society which are needed now more than ever.

Jerry,

While I don't disagree with you - you need to realize that this was a quick sketching competition for the purposes of fun - not solving the transportation industrys energy crisis.

You can go into an entire rant on the politics of design but thats not what this is about. A professional designer took a few minutes out of their time to review some different sketches and pick which ones he liked the best. There wasn't a panel of officials, a $1 million dollar prize, and weeks of preparation that would be needed for ANY project with substance. If you really were capable of creating an environmentally responsible design that wasn't anything more then putting some callouts that said "hybrid magic fuel cell that runs on salt water" in an hour you'd deserve a nobel prize.

It's very easy to get pissed at the motivation and criteria in any form of competition, especially one you put work into. But in the end you're just wasting energy to accomplish nothing - you either stay bitter or you pick up your markers, smile, and move on to the next competition.
