Subaru WRX - Vexel Hood Up by dangeruss Subaru WRX - Vexel Hood Up by dangeruss
Vexel: Vector - Pixel Hybrid [link]

My obsession with Subarus continues! This time a hot blue WRX with a Chargespeed widebody kit and loads of details. Based pretty much on my favorite tuned Subaru (Ferdie Ang's Team Horoki WRX) this is my most detailed Vexel to-date. The engine, sadly, is inaccurate for Ang's modifications, but I had no decent references for what's under his hood. What a snake-pit of hoses and wires this beast was! I just about gave-up 3 or 4 times during the creation. The engine took several days effort alone. I feel the headlights came out pretty well on this onem though I'm pretty sick of painting late model Subaru headlights after this one. I'll have to do an older "round-eye" model next :)

Wheels are 3D - Modeled in 3D Studio MAX and "toon" rendered to suit the image. The rest is Photoshop work. The background is a filtered photo.

I ended up on your page because I wanted to see if deviant art had similar art to the stuff i've been creating recently. I really admire your work and attention to detail. I just started my venture into car illustration, and ill admit I am not as detailed. I hope to one day be at this level of skill. Keep doing what you are doing man, this is really good stuff. And I read your entry on your main page about every one asking you for advice. I went to school for graphic design, but in the 3 years that I was in school I learned maybe 2 things that I didn't already learn for my self by fooling around with the adobe suite. Anyways to end it short and sweet, I dig your stuff thanks for doing what you do.

pretty epic. my only complaint is that the piping for the intercooler would be way pronounced were it a real WRX
