Sketch Competition #20 - Kappa Deux, Part I

Welcome to Sketch Competition #20!

Sexy. Fast. Exciting. Old? All terms that can adequately describe the current crop of Kappa roadsters, the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn SKY. And though certainly not old to the public, to us they may seem a bit - well - been there, done that. After all, we have been witnessing the Solstice's gestation for the years leading up to its debut and that goes for SKY as well. By the time any car reaches the showrooms, we've already become used to it and are looking ahead to the next big thing. Even more relevant to the current Kappas is the fact that they were, frankly, cobbled together from exisitng leftover componants and do have some deficiancies - limited trunk space, an altogether goofy-looking ragtop, and no factory coupe variant of either. The latter is especially disappointing to those who loved the idea of the hot Pontiac hatch that the original Solstice concept promised.

Well, its time for you to correct that for the next time around.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to design the next generation Pontiac Solstice and Saturn SKY. Any design work you do is completely up to you, keeping in mind the size of these cars are meant to be kept as tight as possible - these are roadsters amongst roadsters and should not grow in size beyond their current dimensions. Aside from that, you're free to do whatever you want. Bodystyles also are limited to convertible, coupe, or hatch. Your choice. Again, we highly encourage you to design interiors along with multiple exterior views to really give a complete feel to your design. In these cars especially, interior design is paramount and we'd love to see awesome interiors with awesome exteriors. The last constraint is that this must be a Pontiac or Saturn vehicle. You may even change the name if you so choose, but this must be either a Pontiac or Saturn. If you're wondering about why there's a restriction...well...it says 'Part I' for a reason. :AH-HA_wink:

Please include at minimum 2 (two) of the following:
-3/4 Front View
-3/4 Rear View
-Interior View

**Entries without two perspectives will still be accepted, but will incur a 1-point penalty at the end of voting**


Remember, people will be voting based on the overall presentation of your entry, so the more views, the better, including ones not specifically listed above.

Aside from 800x600 size guidelines, remember this must be a Pontiac or Saturn vehicle.

The winner will recieve a GM-related prize!

Deadline is Monday, August 13th@ 11:59PM your local time.

Good luck! :CG_all:

I love the Sky. Looks like a mini Corvette. But I was dissapointed in the design of the Solstice and, you're right Brian, those ragtops look sloppy. This will be fun.

:thumbsup:

Is this way too big for a kappa car (truck) GMC version

Um, that's a Pickup truck. The Kappa Platform is a Roadster/Sports Car type deal.

An interesting concept, but keep working on it for Kappa Deux, Part II. This specific competition is for the next-generation Solstice and SKY only. ;)

I haven't sat down and sketched anything in a long time...very unhappy with not being able to finish it but I can't get certain angles right and pretty much gave up lol, I started coloring it in photoshop then just merged the sketch and the colored picture later...I'll try harder next time.

Sorry guys, no entry from me this time, I'm swamped in work. But once I'm free again, I'm going to design and render two cars: a new Cadillac BLS, and a new Honda CRX, so look for them soon!

WAY too big for a Sky. Besides, the Sky only fits 2, this looks like the size of a Camaro!

And who says it has to be a skY? If you read you can change the name to whatever you wish, the car is smaller on paper than the posted pictures. Looks about the size of a Cobalt on paper, which I believe is pretty close.

Got the idea from this car and they are about the same size on paper, so there's no possible way it is too big. Thank you, that is my entry regardless.

Mine is a Solstice Coupe concept. I wanted to work on a more traditonal roadster as well, but I'm travelling today and ran out of time. My FTP setup is out of whack as well, so this one is uploaded to photobucket. Hope it works....
