    In this lesson, you will explore the logic behind designing various vehicle types, including passenger cars, spacecraft, and flying vehicles. Instructor John Frye delves into the historical evolution of vehicle volumes, emphasizing the human aspect in design dimensions. John introduces a design methodology structured around the ‘letter P’ – Person or Passenger, Purpose, Power, and Propulsion, guiding the design based on these elements. The lesson also includes practical exercises in sketching different vehicles, focusing on their essential attributes and design parameters, and enhancing understanding of vehicle silhouettes and shapes. John’s approach combines a historical perspective with practical design elements, allowing you to understand vehicle design logic thoroughly.

    This lesson belongs to the course, Vehicle Design and Sketching. In this 5-week course, join instructor John Frye to learn the art of hard-surface vehicle design and sketching. Discover the fundamental differences between hard surface and organic sketching, focusing on creating designs that feel solid and manufactured. John will guide you through aesthetic development, aiming for universally appealing designs while considering the narrative context. Explore symmetry, movement, and perfecting your line work for manufactured objects. This course will sharpen your skills in both conceptual thinking and practical execution, making it ideal for artists who aspire to bring unique, story-driven vehicle designs to life in film, gaming, or personal creative projects.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
