Porsche Carrera GT Vector by lxmcc Porsche Carrera GT Vector by lxmcc
This took me quite a while, not sure how long exactly, but it was a while. It's 100% Illustrator and my first attempt at using the gradient mesh tool. C/C welcome.

*edit - uploaded a more reasonable size*

One of the most beautiful supercars to date.

Very nice work. For me the Carrera GT is one of the most beautiful cars ever built. This car also inspired me for a painting in Adobe Illustrator (using no mesh/grid) from another interesting angle. See here:…

How do you begin??
Starting out from a square or do you draw the shape with pentool?

Fantastic job for first mesh!!
lxmcc Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006   Interface Designer
I'm sure all the other vector guys follow the same kind of process but I started with the pen tool tracing the major parts of the car. I then blocked in the major colours and from there proceeded from section to section turning the block colours into meshes and tweaking them until I got the effect that I wanted.

Thanks for all the new comments!

As for the comment by Taw, I agree there are some bits that look a little off. A less than ideal reference and impatience caused me to overlook a few things ;)

hm...flawless was the first thing that came to my mind.
what bothers me, tho...are the spots which look kinda...smudged and the jagged line on the top of the roof and on the bottom of the hood.

other than that...solid work. kudos!

I fucking hate Illustrator. Nice job sticking with it, 'cause by the time I get done drawing a circle in it I pretty much never want to use it ever again. Ever.

Thats as realistic as it gets if you ask me!

Thank you :)

Holy crap.

Although, I think you need to work on your presentation. The border, background, and size, etc. of the piece don't fit the illustration itself. The other elements of the piece are not worthy of the illustration. :)

Thanks for the input, I'll try to keep this sort of thing in mind more for future uploads

Holy fuck... You really know how to use that mesh tool. I really love the way you have done the lighting on this picture. The headlights look extra sweet :)
lxmcc Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005   Interface Designer
Thank you, I had to take some liberties with a lot of the car as my reference had a lot of reflections going on that I didn't want in the image. The headlights were a challenge but I'm glad they are well received!

Awesome job, it's cool how this pic looks real and drawn at the same time
lxmcc Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005   Interface Designer
Thanks! I was really pleased with how it came out looking almost airbrushed because I wasn't sure how it would look when I started it.
Lankun Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005
this amazes me exponetially. i was literally stunned when i saw that this was a vector peice. the level of detail you have here, along with the crisp lines and teriffic shadows blows my mind. this is really great

Thank you for the very kind words, they're always appreciated :)
