    Default Mercedes SL

    Here´s my first car done in Xtreme some time ago. A rendering of the previous SL model by Mercedes Benz.

    Thumbs up Re: Mercedes SL

    Looks pretty slick to me.

    I assume you worked from an existing image. How much did you changed or did you pretty much render what was in the original image?

    I am always amazed at you guys who have the patience and the skill to draw an entire car, motorcycle, or an entire anything. And then to color it so well blows me away.

    Nice view, clean lines, realistic highlights and reflection, Miguel. I even like the color. Is that a personal project or a commissioned graphic. I'm thinkin' that it would make a real nice poster.

    I look forward to many more from you,
    Harry

    I really like one ... I don't really like the cars posted up on here most of the time because everyone goes for the photo-realistic look. But this i really really like because it's done a style of your own ... a sort of cell-shaded vibe - like that borderland computer game.

    Kudos to you for doing something different and doing it well.

    Keep it up.

    I love the render style of this! My art preference is not realistic (though I'm awed by those who can create realism)....I like illustrative or painterly looking images and I feel that this fits in perfectly with my 'likes'

    Beautiful car and a great render, Miguel. I am knocked out by the ground reflections, too.
    Saludos,

    Thanks all for your comments. I really appreciate it. I didn´t post much in the last couple of months, hopefully this will change now that i have some more time.

    Gary: Yes, i´ve used an image as reference. The original car in the image was parked on a street and the car´s color was black.
    I´ve changed the composition, colored it with a deep washed blue, "clean it up" and created the ground and background.

    Harry: This was a personal project for learning purposes. I always liked cars, from american classics to tuned japanese models, but never have drawn one in Xara.
    This was a first experiment to see how i would solve certain problems and to try some techniques. I´m pleased with the result but now seems there´s certain things i could do in other ways and some more ideas have come up since then. I already started my second... who knows maybe i can do some commissioned work in the future

    Best regards,
    Miguel
