Watch an AMG designer render a CLS 63 in time lapse [video]

From hand drawn sketch to digital render

Creating a design sketch from plain paper to digital rendering takes a long time, but AMG has condensed the process for us to show what's involved.

In this time-lapse video an AMG designer starts with a hand drawn sketch which is scanned and loaded into photo editing software - in this case Photoshop CS5. From here, the artist uses a digital sketch pad to add color and the finishing touches.

Just a quick note: At 0:26 in the video don't be fooled when the artist holds the paper sketch up to the monitor and it magically appears on screen. This isn't some secret technology but most likely shown this way for editing purposes.

i have to say that for all the techno gizmo rendering wizardry , the final outcome doesn't quite match that of Mark Stehrenberger's purely hand drawn automobile illustration masterpieces .

What's with designers sketch their cars with big ass wheels with no rubber?

...but you thought it was really cool, right? What difference does it make if it's a slow news day or not?
