Adaptation B - Idea refinement

In my tutorial today we discussed my previous ideas for my project. All but one were deemed to generic, the one that worked better was the idea of car or vehicular type modelling. A mixture of hard and soft modelling it will be a great exercise to do.

In terms of adaptation my idea is to adapt a person's characteristics into a car. So an athlete would be more like a sports car and a business man more like a luxury saloon.

My Ideas for people and type of car are as follows:
  • Muhammed Ali - Would be more like a super car, his strength would translate into a high horsepower, his speed and agility and physique into a sporting aesthetic.
  • Winston Churchill - Would be more like a a luxury saloon, like a Bentley or Rolls Royce. His sophistication and personality would translate into strong lines and a high quality look.
  • Al Capone - Would be more of an old luxury car with a modern twist. His criminal attributes could translate as hidden compartments or concealed guns/gadgets much like an old Bond car.
  • Scarlett Johansson - Would be more like a sleek sports car. Her physique can translate in to a sleek and fast bodywork, with her acting ability or her power would translate into a sporty powerful car under the bodywork.
  • Usain Bolt - Would be more like a muscle car. His speed would translate into the straight line speed of a muscle car as well as his defined physique translating into bold muscular lines.


  1. Hi Jamie

    Ok this is more interesting and along the right lines. However it might be better to find people that are more associated (as a group). For example, Al Capone and all the other gangsters and police (Elliot Ness etc). Or you find a group which are associated by theme... Like the League of Extrordinary Gentlemen for example...Alan Quatermain, the Invisible Man, etc (all from Victorian literature). Also, these may not all be cars...think about the other types of vehicles. It might be a collection of characters that are so different they become a set of vehicles. For example, 'Dad's Army' as Military Vehicles - A plane, a tank, a bike etc (Don't do this idea its just an example). FYI - Look at the cartoon 'Wacky Races'...each car is representative of each character. These are cartoon style but they represent the same type of project.

    1. Okay Alan, that sounds good. so for example could I do the avengers? say a bike for black widow or a techy looking car for iron man?
