A little bit of spare time - whoo! I've wanted to paint a beetle for ages - such a striking little car. Anyway, this took about 100 mins or so, an old rusty car sitting in the rain at night. Photo ref for car of course.

Photoshop CS3
Wacom Intous 3 (A5)
Original res - about 3k wide.

Book out soon!

Poor little car, I'll take it!! <?xml:namespace prefix = da />don't leave - emoticon 

I always wanted one of these cars. Gorgeous work, I love how you did the rain, and how the headlights look like sad eyes. Aww Revamp-Kinda

Gorgeous atmosphere. I love the light from above, it looks very dramatic and glows beautifully on the top of the car. Also the rough brush strokes add a grungy feeling that is great, reminds me of a movie. Great work :D

This is amazing, the image feels not quite sad, but more mellow and humbling. Just that sort of "*sigh*, another rainy night...." feeling. :) Love it!

AMAZING! :heart:
Such a sorrowful feeling to it and such detail on the rain glossing over the car! :clap:
