Automotive illustration > It is all in the details. Knowing what the difference is between a 1957 and 1958 Chevrolet is so important. Also key is to create a design that appeals to a wide range of Chevrolet buffs. Thus is the task of delivering a piece of automotive artwork.

Make it POP! Color choice is just as important as the line art. The goal is for a rich, vibrant design.
It always starts > with a sketch. Great illustration has to start somewhere. A sketch conveys what the customer desires and how I am interpreting it. Once down on paper- it is straight into building the illustration as vector artwork.
Only 5 spot colors. But with halftone blends it looks like 8.

Eventually it becomes a finished artwork. I prefer to build my designs as mechanical pieces, that is to build colour separations as it develops. It really saves time later when running films.

Every line art project is authored in Adobe Illustrator/FreeHand for absolute precision output in any medium.
