You may recognize this piece- looks very similiar to Dangeruss's entry, right? Well this was the original he based his off of, we have worked out an agreement so no comments about similiarities, thanks. The car is done in photoshop mostly copy and paste with some brush work to make everything fit.
This is my concept that I feel evokes confidence in a thought of never blending in. The theme and title is "ISTANDOUT" that was designed to highlight the 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport exterior features while carefully choosing modifications that is executable within the 10-week build period.
Design Notes: - A Teal Blue with Gloss Black 2-tone paint scheme following the lines and accentuating the contours of the body. No Body Kit needed. - Custom Fender vents achieved with an IS-F -inspired cut in the Factory OEM fenders. - Lowered stance via an Air Suspension System that can adjust the ride height accordingly. - Blacked-out all the chrome parts and trims. - Big Brake kit with Calipers painted to match the Teal Blue body. - Split 5-spoke wheel designed finished in Gloss Black with Teal Blue pinstripe.
Additional Notes: - Created in Photoshop CS5 - Base Lexus IS 250 F Sport images from the provided asset were used and modified. - My own photograph of the wheels were used and modified. - Background elements were created 100% from scratch.
As someone who had attended SEMA since 1996, as well as designed cars for it, this was a challenge I couldn't pass up.
My work is inspired from the old Dodge Dart and mostly from the idea this new Dart to be making history in the racing championships,mostly in the touring car championships. The new Dodge have really inspiring shapes,really modern look,something that you don't espect seeing the old one. The car still looks very mean and aggressive,like it's "born" to be on the track.
I used mostly soft lines(side of the car,roof,front bumper) and sharp edges(mirrors,hood,front splitter,rear spoiler,wheels).I mixed those two styles looking for something different from my usual style and looking for art feeling of the image.
Body work is nothing special,no details,again for that art feeling. Background is mixture again from sharp edges and soft lines,fitting it to the main idea for the work and the car. Also we have part from a race track,just to hint the main idea for race car. Black/dark color(s) symbolize the mystery around this beast,the red color symbolize the aggression that this beast carries in it.
Original size of the work : 5266 x 3510 pix. 44,59 x 29,73 cm
There have been many One-Make or single marquee race series from other car companies but I thought why not have one for the SMART car. Imagine a bunch of these zipping around the track with fun liveries in a One-make racing series. Might just be a "smart" idea
Following the smooth and angular design theme that current Lexus concepts express today, my concept interprets this theme with custom body panels to create more dynamic, aggressive and artistic forms.
