Maserati GT-R Prototype

Vexel: Vector - Pixel hybrid - [link]

Yet another collaborative work with Maurizio Mancin. This time Maurizio took the pretty mundane Maserati 3200 GT [link] and turned it into a "real" GT car. Working off of his pencil sketch, I did my usual "Vexel" treatment.

Wheels done in 3D Studio (the weakest part of the piece) and the Painting done in Photoshop CS2. Logos were created in CorelDRAW and placed / modified in Photoshop.

I struggled with the color on this one. I think it was at one time or another, every color in the spectrum. I wanted to do it in blue and white like the MC12 Corsa Maserati, but I could never make myself happy with it. Ultimately the "white" paint layer looked the best, so it stayed.

When I was a student there were notebooks with this very picture on the cover! (hope guys who made'em paid you for it)
And not that I needed a notebook but I was like “Oh, my!!! Give me this!”
Now I met this piece on DA and since many years it still looks great

I'll bet you live in Central America - perhaps Honduras.  I did a version for a publisher there that makes notebooks. I do a series of cars for them every year.

Nice guess, but I'm from Russia actually)

Funny, when I saw your pseudonym for the first, I thought you're from Russia too :) (because of the end part)

Nice job, it's really good. Is it just me or is the car on a slight twist, perspective isn't perfect. Still awesome work though...gj.

nice, but it looks like you cut the side view in half, looks really really narrow. but other then that, fantastic work. just an issue with perspective. awesome job.
