Subaru WRX - Vexel Hood Up

Vexel: Vector - Pixel Hybrid [link]

My obsession with Subarus continues! This time a hot blue WRX with a Chargespeed widebody kit and loads of details. Based pretty much on my favorite tuned Subaru (Ferdie Ang's Team Horoki WRX) this is my most detailed Vexel to-date. The engine, sadly, is inaccurate for Ang's modifications, but I had no decent references for what's under his hood. What a snake-pit of hoses and wires this beast was! I just about gave-up 3 or 4 times during the creation. The engine took several days effort alone. I feel the headlights came out pretty well on this onem though I'm pretty sick of painting late model Subaru headlights after this one. I'll have to do an older "round-eye" model next :)

Wheels are 3D - Modeled in 3D Studio MAX and "toon" rendered to suit the image. The rest is Photoshop work. The background is a filtered photo.

Holy shit thats amazing! I wish I could do that!
I ended up on your page because I wanted to see if deviant art had similar art to the stuff i've been creating recently. I really admire your work and attention to detail. I just started my venture into car illustration, and ill admit I am not as detailed. I hope to one day be at this level of skill. Keep doing what you are doing man, this is really good stuff. And I read your entry on your main page about every one asking you for advice. I went to school for graphic design, but in the 3 years that I was in school I learned maybe 2 things that I didn't already learn for my self by fooling around with the adobe suite. Anyways to end it short and sweet, I dig your stuff thanks for doing what you do.

I'll never learn to paint digitally
pretty epic. my only complaint is that the piping for the intercooler would be way pronounced were it a real WRX

I love the kind of Borderlands, stylized look of this car. I know this was made way before Borderlands but it just shows you're ahead of the times! This is beautiful, makes me wanna go out and buy a WRX.
