Today I managed to finish my line work! It was not as bad as I thought, so I decided to Export my image into Photoshop. Sounds easy right? Well, it wasn’t! First it didn’t want to take my resolution, then it tried to merge my layers. I finally got what I wanted and started to set it up in ‘shop.

Once I had it there, I decided to clone the “detail” layer (ctrl J) then merge it with the line work layer. I also decided to add a color background in order to make sure no gaps appeared in my colors. I chose gray.

Having combined the layers allowed me to make selections that I could color anyway necessary. I chose a black and dark gray layers to add those colors in appropriately.

That’s it for tonight. Not only will I finish this soon, my muse for next month has already said yes! It’s so good to be me…

After going to the Motor Trend International Auto Show, I decided that a new mustang GT was definitely in my future! I took lots of pictures and learned something really important; this car sucks at taking photos! I’ve always been a Ford guy, but the new European mustang is going to need an American front end at some point. Still, I’m in.

I know the modifications I need to make, so that kinda stuff comes easy. However, having a drawing of the vehicle makes it a little easier to know what parts look good on her. Yes her. AmyLee to be precise.

So after getting this far in Photoshop, I realized my line work just wasn’t clean enough to get the look I wanted. I was bummed until I remembered I had Illustrator! So I switched programs and used my anchor points to clean up the lines. Voila!

AmyLeeI was so happy with it that I decided to save it as a template. With a little more detail, it should make a great start for people to customize! What do you think guys? Should I?…
