This is an example project I did some moths ago for the students at Digital Arts and Entertainment following the Preproduction course.
Doing these example projects help to asses how much time is needed for the students to make a similar project and gives them a good overview of what we expect. For their project, the students had to design a hovering, single-person vehicle that is able to travel long distances through desert landscapes. We always start from real life references and mix those together with specified design style characteristics.
