Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 Edition by CRWPitman Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 Edition by CRWPitman
It's more of a superfast touring car than an exotic, but for some reason I like the extravagance of the SLR. Sometimes it looks a bit too much for my tastes, with all the fancy doo-dads on the exterior and interior. But in some colours (like the Pagani Zonda or Spyker cars) it looks perfect. The new 722 edition is my favourite, with the genmetal rims and carbon fibre splitter up front. I loved it when I saw it, so I did a vector version.

All the fancy "filler" on the outside made this one take a long time - so many detailled scoops and vents. At least the rims weren't too bad, but it still took about 30 hours I think. My second moving car - the background is stole from the SVX I finished last.

Again, no gradient meshes. But there are a few blend effects, as well as multiple overlaid gradients with transparency effects applied.

I like the spinning effect of wheels and the disk brakes visible beyond them! amazing job!

Although being artist or a designer my self, I dont like aggressive designs like this, which represent more, what the designers want, than that of its engineers.

Now that is awesome, im continually amazed by you, every time i see something new submitted it blows me away.
You choose the best pictures to work from, you have the skill to make each one unique, to stand out and look effortlessly beautiful.
To me you are among the very best vector artists on Deviantart, even threatening Dangeruss' level of detail.
Very much a :+fav: and much love :) :glomp:

Excellent vector work! Just curious, is there any reason you opted not to use the gradient mesh tool?

I just find the gradient mesh tool difficult to work with. Almost as if it has a mind of it's own. I suppose I should use it more to get used to it, on a simpler object.

Try this. When you have the shape drawn, fill it with a simple gradient. Use the gradient tool to expand the gradient past the edges of the shape. Under your object pull-down menu, select "Expand..." and in the pop-up menu, it has "Expand Gradient to..." and from there select gradient mesh. This will then give you a simple box gradient mesh while using the shape as a mask. Use the gradient mesh tool to add lines to the grid, and the open select tool to manipulate the position of the points and the bezier curves. Select each point to give it a fill color or color percentage. It's really time consuming, but actually rather simple with a little practice.

You've captured the glossyness very well, I must say. I also especially like the exhaust pipes.
