This is, by far, my greatest piece yet. Started working on this December 21rst. This is my all-time favourite vehicle ^_^ so I gave it 110% and I am very proud with the end result!
My primary goal for this piece was to see how far I could go with the detail using my skills in Illustrator. I am 97% satisfied with the end result after two months of work. The hardest part was the headlights and the inside of the car. Looking at what I had to work with, I think it turned out pretty good.
The original was a little bit bigger and I didn't want to lose any detail resizing it to fit on the screen so I apoligize for the big image (and as a jpeg, it lost a bit of its crispness). Later, I will post a wallpaper version.
All in all, even I am suprised how well this turned out. It was well worth the time and effort and I hope you all see that. After a long project like this, I would love to read all your comments so if you want, comment/fav! Thank you all and Enjoy!
