Art Deco - Study of Luke's X-34 Landspeeder

On Sunday morning, I finally sat down and back engineered the Art Deco design for Luke's X-34 landspeeder. The whole process took a few hours, with the main difficulty being finding good pictures of the vehicle. That was a challenge. Too much noise! But I did find a few good pics and really helped.

McQuarry was a fucking genius who knew his shit. I actually underestimated his design skills (which is saying something).

I'm still not satisfied with the engine. Getting a really clear look at them proved quite difficult, so I couldn't really tell how the curves went.

Return to: Art Deco 101

Douglas Milewski is a fantasy writer who liked drafting class too much. In his recent artistic struggles to produce art deco for his own covers, he found no internet sites dedicated to the technical underpinnings of the art. Seeing a niche that needed filling, he has documented his hard learned experiences. He doesn't claim that he's right, and would very much appreciate it if someone more competent would save him from his own folly.
