Came up with this in record time! Took me 16 hours on and off. I'm pleased with how this piece turned out!

Like the blurs. Gives the car an otherwordly glow. Give it a dark background (even a fill colour or gradient or just black) and the effect will be awesome

I cried after I saw this... It's too.. Beautiful...

Nice work there, chap. You really covered everything, from the details and outlines of the car up to the shadowing. Even the glare of the windshield was done with professional skill.

Goodness, I'd prepare a festival in honor of your work, good sir.

Your work is the best I have ever seen... n,n

LOL, surely you are exaggerating, for a simple search on deviantart will reveal artwork much more polished than this one, but thank you all the same! I'm really happy you like this first successful vexel of mine, comment much appreciated :D

Reminds me a lot of the devil-Z from Wangan Midnight (if you're familiar with the anime/manga), but in red instead of blue. Nice job, I love the blurred/fuzzy feel the image has to it, it reminds me of when there's a little moisture in the air in the early morning and the sun hits the car at just the right angle... if that makes any sense :D
Reply
:iconaesthari:
Aesthari Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
Hehe yea, they're kinda similar, although the Devil Z has standard ZG flares (which are narrower), and a more complex front air damn with foglamps!

This is my dream nostalgic car, so the blur effect was in there to communicate the vision of my dream, if that makes any sense to you, either :D

Aesthari Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2008
Thank you! Actually, the blur is a side-effect of the technique I'm using to soften some edges and cover up some mistakes, glad you like the blur as much as I do too! Thanks for the fave too!

How can i not like it... it gives that unique touch to vexels. I could recognize any of your works from now on in a second. That blur in combo with such sharp reflections... surely one of a kind style

hey how much do you know about the site in your link? There are some cars on there I'd like to know more about but dunno who to ask.

cityofthesouth Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2008
NIIIIICE. I think if you had put a little color in the surfaces pointing to the sky (like in the photo) it would have looked even shiny ..er? the drawing appears to be in some soft light. and maybe a little more detail in the wheels .... otherwise i got nothin. good stuff.
Reply
:iconaesthari:
Aesthari Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2008
Thanks! Putting colours in the surface will mean I need to do a background too, and I'm not feeling up to it :p Erm, the site, I'm not too sure, but most of the cars are named, so maybe you can look them up in the net, I'm just an avid fan of the site!

Hm, I think your best bet is to ask the webmaster himself, although replies might be slow, he's a very, very, busy man, working hard to bring us awesome coverage :)
