Mazda Turbochanged RX2 Drag Car Vector Design Wireframe Reveal

A recent drag car vector design, showing a little of what goes into making such an illustration.  It is all made of of shapes that have a graduation from one color to another or lines. All stacked on top of each other to get the desired effect.

Very different from the digitally painted comic book approach, that we also do, even though the starting sketch is the same.

Here is a video of other recent works, most of which were done in the digitally painted method. It also has one of our  original electronic soundtracks.

Digital Comic Car Caricature Cartoons

Another example of the way we do the digital comic style caricature cartoons, from a 13+ series of car icons done for a car forum website.

We start with our base template for the first car of the series, and draw the body in blue pencil.  I use 0.5mm blue leads, such as Staedtler Mars micro color,  in a mechanical pencil.

This pencil can be erased, but the coolest thing is that you just ink straight over it and don't have to erase it once inked.  That saves a step that damages the black ink and paper. Scanning in RGB allows you to drop out the blue channel and are left with just the black inked lines.

This is the same way we have done our Heavy Metal Garage Webcomic.

That is scanned and then colored in Photoshop, using a Wacom tablet to airbrush most of the colour.
