Half Vision, Half Reality – Completed Toons

Just wanted to share some completed projects over the last few days that I’ve been grinding out. Trying to fit these in between everything has been a challenge, but I’m enjoying working on all the cars! Lots of detail in them and it’s nice to work on cars other than mine.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the guys that have been submitting! Once I start completing more, I’ll keep posting! I’ve got a bunch more in the queue so I gotta find some time to bang those ones out shortly too. Thanks for the support!

Half Vision, Half Reality Toon

Decided to play around a little bit with some illustrations and came up with a half vision, half reality concept. It mixes a little bit of both worlds to give a cool vibe.

If anyone is interested, I’m opening up commissions to creating them right now. $40/ half toon and $60/full toon.

You just have to give me your favourite picture and I’ll do the rest! Email me if you’re interested!

Just a shameless plug post – some good visual/art porn for you though.

As you know, I tried my hand at vector art for weeks only to fail pretty badly. I personally think I did decent through YouTube tutorials and DeviantART write ups. I never got as far as the outline and one shade of colour before I got frustrated and gave up. I think I spent more time cursing at the screen than doing actual work.

Those of you that may have tried self-teaching may or may not know my pains. If you do, then you’ll surely appreciate the below. If not, I envy you. I’m personally not one to give up on stuff like this, but I just couldn’t devote the time and resources to it to be successful at it. ALL I wanted was to make a vector of my own car and then that’s it LOL.

Anyway, Ricky has gone the extra mile and did what I couldn’t do and it’s amazing how fast he’s progressed over the last few weeks. He went from spending a few days to complete a project to now churning them out in less than a day. With only a few pieces under his belt, it’ll only be a matter of time before he’s creating masterpieces. Don’t get me wrong, these are amazing already but just seeing the progression with these pieces alone means there’s lots more to come.

He’s currently accepting commissions to do more work. I encourage you to hit him up and get him to do a render for you. When you support artists, it helps them become better artists. A year from now, you’re gonna want him to do another and another and another! I heard from a little birdy that there’s plans for more than just a file with your car art… *cough*merchandise*cough*. Behold!

My FRS. Attention to detail and really his first completed piece. I’m honoured to have had my car be one of the first and to be the stepping stone to other great pieces…

Shortly after, he did a very cool progression render of Don’s ex Golf R in its’ various stages.

Next, he started playing around with more popular cars that we’ve surely seen over the interweb. LibertyWalk Ferrari. You can already see the progression of detail.ย  Print

Not too long after, an RWB Porsche. Again, more detail in the wheels and reflection. Absolutely beautiful colour.

And his latest piece – a LB Audi R8. This time with some background to give it some more pop.

Hit him up and get some work done!

Vector Art: First One Completed!

Boom. Was able to stay on the simple route and actually drew the bumper out from scratch versus tracing over another image. Not too shabby… The line work is a little messy especially on the mirrors since that was from scratch as well and getting the shape of them is not the easiest task. I find doing little projects like this really helps fine tune the basic skills like lines and details before trying to tackle anything more complicated.

Still gotta work on the other FRS image when I get some time… In the meantime… I’m a bit more satisfied. ๐Ÿ™‚
