Lamborghini Countach by Aesthari Lamborghini Countach by Aesthari
Lamborgini Countach, one of my all-time favorite raging bull!

This piece took way way longer than I expected (about 20 hours on and off), and the lighting at the front end was kinda tough to figure out, but I managed after many exasperating tries :D This one's been fun to do, though I don't think I'll attempt another Lambo anytime soon :p

Original photo taken by Mike Garrett of Auto-Otaku fame.

Masterful drawing. The Countach set the approximate basis for how the modern Lambos look.

I think it isnt a real lambo. It's a kit car made to look like the real thing. U see all countachs had pop up headlights in the front and that one dosent. those vents on the roof are also suspicious. You can learn everything about the countach here: [link]

Oh, that! LOL, it's definitely a real Countach; the pop-up headlights are a common mod to cars with pop up headlights, a lot of RX7, MR2, and NA series Miata owners do that, even the Ferrari F40 LM has this mod! And about the scoops, they're only logical because this particular Countach is a tuned one and it's necessary to keep feeding air to the mid-mounted engine and cool it.

Dunno. well if someone did those mods to a real countach than they should be ashamed.

this is the original right? [link]

Yes, that's the original pic. And there's nothing to be ashamed at doing that to a real Countach; they just took something awesome and made it greater. A lot of these machines, especially the old ones, have lots of potential which are left untapped due to reliability or technology limitations during the era it was made in, however, do the right things to it and it'll be way better.

very nice, don't like how the dash just suddenly stops and that large air vent has a bit of a fuzzy/sharp line, keeps destracting me away from this stunning piece of work :D

Which air vent? Too many vents on this car! Haha, anyway, must be a side-effect of the technique I'm using; I'm still trying to improve it :D

The dashboard is like that on the actual car in that the instrument cluster protrudes abrubtly while everything else is sunken, you can see it here:

left airvent behind the side window, the biggest one, right a long the top, yea, its a common problem, still trying to figure out how to get rid of mine, usually feather does the trick. ah cool, didn't know the dashboards were like that. keep it up :D

Hm, still couldn't spot the problem, I might have spent too many hours looking at it to be able to notice anything at all now :p I'm trying to fix that blurry/sharp line appearance too, we'll see how it goes with my next work, wanna try backgrounds too, but I'll concentrate on the cars for now :D Thanks for the input!
