Vexel: Vector-Pixel Hybrid

This is the first results of a new "partnership" between myself and Michael Cheung who is the Chief Project Manager at [link] Michael is a writer and photographer for this on-line tuning e-zine. He has extended his permission and supplied exlusive high-res photos to work from. This is based on a similar street car featured by azines.com.

Wheels, wing and intercooler details were modeled and toon rendered in 3D studio MAX, The remainder is Photoshop "tooning" accomplished with the pen tool, hundreds of selection sets and typical paint and editing tools. Sharp eyed gamers might recognize the Tsukuba pits from Gran Turismo 4. :)

Is this the M3 GTR, or just a 325i? I don't see the small grill behind the front wheels, yet I know regular M3's are rarely raced. Or am I wrong?

It is a heavily customized 325i. It has a GTR carbon hood, a Flossman Initial GTR widebody kit, which is what the BMW M3-GTRs wear when they compete in DTM. In addition, the rear fenders have been widened 4 inches, and the front 1 inch, to accommodate the stupidly wide wheels.

awesome as always...

is there any way you could make some dual monitor wallpapers sometime? I'd love to have one of these with the car on one side and the background the spans across both sides...
