Custom SLK by dangeruss Custom SLK by dangeruss
Vexel: Vector - Pixel hybrid. [link]

I've wanted to do this vexel ever since I saw dr phoenix's rendition of the same car. [link] I've recreated his side ducting, since it looked so hot. The wheels were modeled and "toon" rendered in 3D studio MAX. The rest is all Photoshop CS2 work. Custom headlights, skirts and front airdam have been added. I was especially keen to do a dark car at twilight and play with lighting effects. While I think phoenix's "photochop" looks prettier, I will admit I like this look too.

My dads got the AMG slk and it is beautiful and anyone would think you were a fool to mess about with it... however you have done a very good job and it looks better than usual. The wider front air dam and side skirts are amazing!

#2: Is that a photo of s city, or is it all modeled/drawn?
#3: Where would be a good place to start learning how to do 'toon shading on redners (is it even possible with blender?)?

1: Thanks
2: Photo
3: This work is mostl;y Photoshop. Only the wheels are 3D. You'd need a Blender rendering plug-in more than likely.

Wow man, I really like this one!
The way you've done the scene lighting is great, I especially like the glow from the rear taillights. The one thing I'll say, is the headlights and foglights don't look really 'lit up' (although the light beams are very effective). I don't know if I'd do a lens flare or something, I guess it is hard to achieve that effect.
Nice as always!
