Nissan GT-R W.I.P. by paulobecker Nissan GT-R W.I.P. by paulobecker
My first attempt at a vector car, following ~me-myself's excellent tutorial ([link]).

I'm pissed at Nissan for not making the new Skyline available in Bayside Blue, so I'd like my vector to look good enough to show how much that color would rock on the new GT-R.

Update 1 (2007/12/08): windows are kinda done, can't figure out how to make the window outlines in a comprehensible way though.
Update 2 (2007/12/09): ok, I'm done with the windows for now. Also started doing the body highlights, and I can tell those are going to be a major pain.
Update 3 (2007/12/13): as I expected, the body is a pain. I'm about to call it done, but it still seems to be missing something. Dunno if it's a little more smoothening or highlights or what. I guess the next logical step are the wheels, and I'm terrified by those.
Update 4 (2007/12/15): Aaannnd it's done! Well, either that or I'm too annoyed to keep improving it. Yeah I know the headlights suck, but give me a break, it's my first try :)

Here's the finished deviation: [link]

Is this going to be the final size of the whole thing or are these just little teaser pics to keep us wanting more? ;)

i tell you what though, it look great in that blue, bodywork looks relatively simple, but thats not a bad thing, most of the best vectors/vexels are kept simple. I just like insane amounts of detail to blow peoples minds =P

Keep it up. :)

No, this preview is a little smaller, but not too much. I like how it looks in blue too :) I think the body's not gonna get much more complicated than that, I'm just trying to smoothen it a bit more. What's killing me now are the rims, and next killer's gonna be the headlights. After that I'm pretty much home free.
Thanks for keeping me encouraged :)

No problem buddy, it helps to have someone backing you, it kinda spurs you on to do better, trust me, i know! =P

I really should get back into the whole vexel scene, but im busy with work, christmas, college, mates and my girlfriend (in no particular order) I might try to squeeze one in before my 'controlled test' at college in march. We shall see :)

Looks great so far Paulo, i like how you've made the linework a little thinner on the 2nd update, looks more defined that way.

If you finish it to the quality that you've started at this'll end up being a very nice vector/vexel indeed. Keep up the good work mate. :)

Thanks dude! If I manage to even get close to the quality of your vexels, I'll be a happy man :D

So I guess you're liking the new R35 body style uh?
(To me, it is very close to the 350Z chassis, and I must confess that I hated that car... They should base it on the new Altima coupe chasis)
Well, this work looks promising. And yeah, ure right, blue hues are a staple for Skylines, heck the sky itself is BLU! I'm sure they'll eventually make it avalable...
I'll be on the lookout for updates yup yup.

I'm not really *liking* it so much as "learning to live with it"... I'd also prefer it if they based the car on something a little more sedan-ish. I also think it's too close to the 350, but heck, at least they're not re-badging Infinitis this time.
Thanks for the kind words, I'll do my best to keep up with your expectations. Just don't set them too high kthx ^^;

Infinity G37... That's a car I wouldn't mind calling a skyline if they made some styling tweaks to the body. And yikes! What's that? same architecture as the the altima coupe? I dun think it's a coincidence. Those car look mean, they're just begging to get modified!!!
