Holy shit I just realized I never posted this!

I had EJ over at clctve.us do a commissioned piece for me to help me envision what will be coming together over the long winter months. I’ve been kind of keeping it under wraps because I really wanted it to be a surprise, but once he finished the rendering, I couldn’t help but share. A big part of me loves Rocket Bunny and despite every one else having it, I still love it. However, I really wanted to venture off the beaten path as I have tried with my previous builds. Don’t get me wrong, all the hype around GT wings and wide bodies is hype that I love so so so much (if you know me, you know I’d put a GT wing on anything within reason). I think that it’s just so hot right now that everybody just picks up the same pieces.

I tried creating a render myself through photoshop but it’s particularly more difficult when the kit barely exists anywhere other than on Ben’s car from AJ-R and of course the demo car in Japan. With such limited shots and angles, there isn’t much I can do in terms of chopping it up and molding it to fit with photoshop skills. Instead, I go to individuals with skills to create photo-realistic renderings which is the next best thing.

EJ and his work, along with many others have been the reason for my inspiration to learn vector illustrations and be a little more creative. I wanted to do it myself but I couldn’t – and I hate that. In the meantime, I will live vicariously through the works of clctve.us and the like until I can create works of art like this.

So what do you think? I’m actually super stoked with how this is all going to come together. It was exactly as I envisioned!

Now all that’s left is to wait for the wing and kit to arrive and find some way to acquire the rear diffuser without getting raped too bad… Almost there!
