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*

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: exotic-legends.deviantart.com/…

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

Fantastic job for first mesh!!

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.

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. :)
