My Car by Vectortrance My Car by Vectortrance
I've always thought that those crazy pictures of cars with big wheels were cool, but could never seem to find any pictures of MY car.
I decided to give it a shot. I was going to fabricate a bodykit, but decided to keep the vehicle as stock as possible, as the car is already really purrdy...


Took me about 6 hours to do. I used Flash and Photoshop.


I started out by opening a new document in Flash MX. (This is my tool of choice for line drawing, as the vector lines are so easy to manipulate) I imported a few reference pictures from various online sources. I then proceeded to lay down vector lines and bend them into the desired shape. Once this was achieved, the image was exported as a jpg and brought into photoshop for coloration.
I used a slightly modified version of Hussein Al-Attar's tutorial on digitally painting a car: [link]. Once the colors were laid down, it was time to add the lens flares to give the headlights some brightness. Voila. Finito!!!

Let me know what you think. Any guesses as to what make and model this car is?

Sweet!
Mine's got blue neons under the dash. Its hawt!
My real car is actually gold. I was thinking about getting it repainted to blue when I made this picture... and then I found out how much it cost to paint a car, and decided gold was a nice color after all. :)

that sounds pretty cool - blue (and red) is illegal here, though cause it's the police/fire depts. colors. too bad i sold that one :C i had the green under it, green foot pedals, a system (two 12s), the neon flashing license plate frame, a muffler...but now i gotta switch all that stuff over to my new car (a 2000 saturn LS1). i miss my old car but my new is more convienient for college (4 doors lol).

There's all sorts of car-icatures online. They're popular in the tuner crowd... I've even got a poster with about 20 of them. Everything from a honda civic to a bentley continental gt. Technichally, yes, I did copy the idea. However I have yet to see another car-icature created for my make and model, so in that regard its 100% unique. Thanks for the comment!

Very cute. I might suggest a little bit more roundness on the bottom of the front tire that we can see, but other than that, it's terrific. I like how you got the lights to glow.

Very funky, I love how this turned out :D.

No idea on the make of car though.. Any hints? I thought Ford too, but you've already said it isn't..

It looks to me like a Ford... Meaning that the back end and wheels kind of look like they would on a Mustang. I am fairly familiar with cars, seeing as how my dad collects them... Mainly Camaros and Firebirds, however... but I am not familiar with what this is.

Oh! I know what kind of car it is!

It's YOU kind of car!! Hehe :D

Nice job, btw!
