Nova SuperSport Illustration
I've decided to continue with this style. I really like it, and I haven't seen anybody else doing this. Automotive art only seems to have a few distinct styles, and I don't really care for any of them.
This was composed in Adobe Illustrator. It's all vector art, but I started from a photograph. There's still evidence of the auto trace feature in there, but a lot less than you may think. For those of you not "in the know," auto trace isn't a feature you draw autos with. It's a feature in Illustrator that turns a photo into vector art. It may sound a lot like cheating, but I'm not. It takes a lot of fine tuning and retracing to get the look you want. It is a great starting point however.
The plan right now is to start printing these directly onto stainless steel. I think they'll look amazing, and hopefully a few potential buyers will too. A new blog is on it's way, dedicated to selling automotive art. Check back soon!
