Drifting Escort mkII Toon by nailgungfx Drifting Escort mkII Toon by nailgungfx
Last week was a total nightmare, full scale work load on my day job and some freelancing in the evenings.

So that weekend I had to do my own thing; what is better than a toon of a drifting Ford Escort mkII RS2000? I wanted to draw an Escort mkII for sooo long! :)

Sketched from scratch (2-3 weeks ago), scanned, pen-tooled (inked) and colored in Photoshop within... hmmm.... 14-18 hours.

Everything was done by me except the logos, which I found them from here: [link]

Enjoy!

That shit is funky man !! the car looks very elastic and cartoonish I love it (makes me think of the movie CARS by Disney).
Great job, great car too.

Thank you! Although I love Pixar's CARS it was not what I had in mind. It's a real challenge to make a successful caricature of a car or anything/anyone really

Go the mighty 'scort!
Nice style and I'm loving the action filled pose.
I wonder how one of these would go in a modern drift competion?
Great job!

thank you!
to be realistic the escorts don't have a chance against the Supras and the GTRs, but with still they are great crowd pleasers. It's their unique style that wins the crowds. Also they are relatively cheaper to prepare and maintain than a Supra or a GTR, offering the same driving excitement, only a little less slower :)

Go the mighty 'scort!

That's one sweet piece of work! Love the graphics effect in the background too. That's something I really need help with (my creativity for backgrounds is terrible.)

Very NICE! I remember you sent me the line work to look at (before we both got TOO busy!) a few weeks ago... I love it!

I especially like your treatment of the headlights (reflection and gloss) and the logos! My "Lotus" logos were an experiment and not as readable as yours here. :)

Well - if I did it in Vector it would've been clearer - but THANKS :)....

It was ridiculously simple once I figured it out, btw - what you don't get to see is all the monstrosities that came before;)
