This is, by far, my greatest piece yet. Started working on this December 21rst. This is my all-time favourite vehicle ^_^ so I gave it 110% and I am very proud with the end result!

My primary goal for this piece was to see how far I could go with the detail using my skills in Illustrator. I am 97% satisfied with the end result after two months of work. The hardest part was the headlights and the inside of the car. Looking at what I had to work with, I think it turned out pretty good.

The original was a little bit bigger and I didn't want to lose any detail resizing it to fit on the screen so I apoligize for the big image (and as a jpeg, it lost a bit of its crispness). Later, I will post a wallpaper version.

All in all, even I am suprised how well this turned out. It was well worth the time and effort and I hope you all see that. After a long project like this, I would love to read all your comments so if you want, comment/fav! Thank you all and Enjoy!

Very nice work. One of my personal favorite cars is the Porsche Carrera GT which is one of the most beautiful cars ever built. This car also inspired me for a painting in Adobe Illustrator (2-D, using no mesh/no grid for gradients) from another interesting angle. See here: exotic-legends.deviantart.com/…
Also see the detail-links in the attachment of the picture-description.
