It is complete, at last!
This is my entry for the Fiat contest and I sincerely hope you like it.
I have worked on it for a month, 2-5 hours every day except for the 6 days I spent in Italy doing research. That is to say, this is the drawing I worked on longer than anything else, ever, in my life. Therefore, I'm very proud of it. The style is inspired by my idea of what Italy must look like, which was confirmed when I actually got there (it turned out to look EXACTLY the same as I thought it would!) You can see the influence of several beautiful Italian cities here, especially Venice, Florence, Padova, Sorrento and Rome.
Now you ask how I got the idea. Well, the answer is this: I love Fiat 500. It is a tiny car designed to roam the tiny streets of Italy and look stylish while doing so. Its design corresponds to the retro-looking Italian architecture and fits in perfectly. Fiat 500L is, on the other hand, a big version of the Fiat 500, which can, therefore, carry Italy in its boot. This idea came to me the morning after the contest was anounced so I set off to work immediately. I drew the whole perspective on a printed template which I then scanned and coloured on my tablet. The colouring took me longest, but I think I have learned a great deal from the whole experience. I have found Italy very inspiring and it actually encouraged me to consider studying architecture.
If this was to be put on an actual car (and that would be the dream of my dreams' dreams!), the car should be of some nice colour, preferably sky-blue, but yellow and orange would do, too.
Again, I really hope you like it, and may you all have a great week!
