    Just a piece for my portfolio, needed a car image for this mock advertisement and I couldn't find a decent res pic for under $300 o_O So I drew it. Yell if anything comes off as wonky.

    It's good enough to recognize as a Civic Hybrid. And I detest Civics... so it must be pretty good.

    Thought I'd post a higher res version of the beast.

    Just as long as noone steals it ;) :p

    That's what I thought. Do the US civics look anything like what the Uk gets?

    Typically in car adverts, they use a bunch of lighting to get dramatic curvy highlights happening on the paint. They even apply different lustres of wax to specific areas to bring up or tone down the highlights.

    Anyway, try adding more highlight accents in a different layer, so you can turn them on and off..

    if i was bald, i would do that to my head

    but yeah, i like the car. is it a hybrid? I hope you would at least render a car that was environmentally considerate and gets at least 70 mpg... :D

    The rear of the car could use a little more depth (some roundness to the bumper maybe?) but that's a tiny nitpick. I think it's a great image, nicely done.

    I think our US ones look better:

    Then I remind myself they're just Civics, so who cares.

    The US civic looks like a normal, aggressively styled coupe.

    It's a Civic... they're all underpowered to me.

    EDIT: 142 pounds of torque LOL! Bring that to the United States and roundly get killed by Saturns and Chevys.

    I love how the OP asks for a critique on his drawing but instead, it turned into a what's wrong with the Civic thread. :D

    Yeah, and for £17,000ish I'd rather buy a Ford Focus ST. A lot more fun to drive apparently.

    Yeah, I like the drawing. I'm impressed by anyone who can use Illustrator well, because I suck at it!!!
