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.
I've been breaking in my Surface and trying to develop a mobile character targeting process. This guy started out as a quick Sculptris sketch (which works SUPER WELL with the tablet interface) then bounced back and forth between Sketchbook and Photoshop.
The Comet was a streamlined interurban train set manufactured by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Company in 1935 for the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. The train featured three cars and was double-ended so it could operate in both directions without having to turn the train at each destination. It initially went into service on a route between Boston, MA and Providence, RI. The train covered the route in 44 minutes and was advertised as "44 miles in 44 minutes". It was very fast regularly operating at speeds of 90 MPH. The train was clocked at over 110 MPH in an early test. The train was withdrawn from service in 1951 and scrapped. This print is a tribute to the New Haven Railroad's beautiful Comet.
