Mustang Mach x1

Hoooweeee, this was a fun one. So I've been sketching here and there what a real Super 'Stang would look like. What I arrived on was essentially a delightful blend of 2010 GT, 1969 Mach 1, and SLS AMG. The "x1" was borrowed from Darth Vader's TIE Advance x1 prototype fighter, because I'm such a geek. (x serves well for concepts at any rate) I could've gone into more detail on the front and rear, but I feel like I nailed the overall look and I didn't want to detract from that with nitty gritties at either end. One of the details I may have failed to communicate was the pass-through vent in the hood. I suppose hood details would tend to get lost in a side view rendering, though. I spent a very casual Saturday on this, on and off. I'd like to do at least a rear rendering in addition. I'll incorporate it into my website tomorrow.

98 Minutes Later

I've finally figured out most of the funky pressure sensitivity driver attitudes on this newfangled technological masterpiece, and I shall post. Yes, this is my first speed painting on my new ASUS eeeSlate EP121! My first touch screen device, my first mobile computer, my first draw-on-screen device. Bear with me, as the last time I used a cintiq was back at CCS. From an impressionist standpoint, I'm happy with this sketch, it catches my eye as a thumbnail- something I need to work on with my more refined pieces. Lots of Juice, lots of Pop. ..Thirst quenching. This was drawn with reference- albeit visual only- no color sampling here! Also, I only used layers for the caddy logo and the background fade- everything else was painted together. Let's hope this is the beginning of a beautiful indentured servitude.
