1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

Artwork for Round 2 and the re-issue of the MPC '79 Firebird T/A model car kit. It was my desire to make this look like sales brochure artwork. By '79 the famous Art Fitzpatrick had moved on and was no longer doing Pontiac art. I wanted this to look like his signature style. The tough part was the fact that in previous years the Pontiac illustrations featured lots of chrome bumpers and trim. There wasn't much on the '79 so I needed to use high lights and reflections to give the car more drama. I also turned on the park lights to brighten it up a bit. The hood decal was a little tricky. Most of the sky was cropped out of the final box but it did turn out very well. The folks at Round 2 provided the right graphics to go along with the art.

Even without the chrome on this Firebird, you did a great job with the coloring and shading. Excellent work all around with this one.
