Along came a Spyder by dangeruss Along came a Spyder by dangeruss
Another "vexel" (vector - pixel hybrid) creation. This time a Toyota MR2 (MR-S in other locales). I seem to be somewhat obsessed with this car, it's my third deviation based on this particular body style. Either that, or I'm in a rut.

Some interesting details about this one - The interior and wheels were done in 3D and composited with a line-art render, for a detailed, yet still tooned look that merges well with the pure illustrative elements. Matching the camera angle to the illustration was somewhat of a challenge and ultimately required some careful manipulation in Photoshop to make it all work together.

you did some serious detailing on the interior, looks great. Like the title too, very clever!

i have to say i love your stuff

and yeah, i think the MR-S is a pretty bitchin car, too bad i'm a Nissan freak and i can't bring myself to support Toyota :p if only they offered that car with a better engine. I still may get one eventually though.

Little critique, the gas cap feels like its not following the contours of the body, it doesn't look like it sits there on the surface at all.

Your works are amazing. But I can't find your signature anywhere on the image -- aren't you afraid people will steal it?

Yeah - I forgot it. Not that a signature will stop anyone. They'd just paint it out anyway.

Mostly Photoshop. Lines and shaped are created with teh Pen tool and saved for later use as selection sets. Colors are filled in on many seperate layers and details are painted in as I go. This one used some 3D rendered elements (wheels and interior) that were rendered with a specific line rendering plug-in (Illustrate by David Gould), and then composited in Photoshop and made to look more like painted elements. Most of my "vexel" work is strictly done in Photoshop using a reference photo as a base layer to keep the basic geomety accurate.

Great as always, Dangeruss. I love the interior detail especially. Not a massive fan of Japanese cars but I love this piece. Mate, you probably get requests all the time, but I'm hanging out for a blinging Hummer or a lowered Cadillac or something. Maybe a Chrysler 300c. You know with massive chrome wheels. Just a thought. Love you work mate, keep it up.

Your best chance is with the 300C. The other two "rolling refrigerators" aren't my thing. I know lots of people love 'em, but I just don't get the appeal.
