Porsche 997 Turbo by CRWPitman Porsche 997 Turbo by CRWPitman
I think it's my most complex one yet. Maybe... Took quite a long time, and I'm surprised I didn't give up after the initial crash where I lost a couple hours of work. Again, no gradient meshes. I used blends opacity tricks to get the same effect.

I put a lot of detail into the lights and rims, so I may upload a wallpaper with some close up shots, in another colour. Prints are coming too, probably tomorrow.

Hmmm - probably 20 hours in total? I'll have to read what I put in my WIPs (in my scraps if you want to see them).

*EDIT* - darkened the shadow and tires so they blend better, and don't look so narrow.

Very nice work. One of my favourite Porsche is the model Carrera GT. It is one of the most beautiful Porsche ever built. This car also inspired me for a painting in Adobe Illustrator (2-D, using no mesh/no grid for gradients) from another interesting angle. See here: exotic-legends.deviantart.com/…

Im not a big fan of Porche.. but wow.

Can i ask how the colours are blended in so well?

Also, did you use Photoshop or Illustrator for this?

It's Illustrator. Some of the colours are blended by using two gradients on top of each with varying opacities/blending modes. It allows for a bit more complexity.

Amazing work. In my photography I will typically lower cars to make the appear more agressive... especially American Porsches because they sit to high from the factory.

Really great! Likely your best work to date. I love the headlights and all the detailing throughout. Faved for sure. Did you say 10 hours!?! Man that's blazingly fast. In Illustrator no less. That's pretty amazing. Anything I attempt in illustrator seems to take twice as long and comes out looking like ass. Sign me up for a class will ya?
