Here's an illustration I created for Road & Track Magazine. The article was on the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year, the Acura NSX. It's a fun article, too. Read it here
Below are the proposed sketches I sent to the design team. The article put emphasis that this was a car that was meant to be driven. The first two sketches reflect this, the others reference other ideas in the article.
Going with the second sketch, I was really excited to draw the background using shapes and squiggly lines. Here are the parts and pieces I used to compose this illustration.
Drawing most of the shapes by hand made coloring this illustration a breeze. And because the background was so colorful and textural, the stood out without much rendering or detail. Here's the final again.
