Caddy Five-Nine

Initial renderings for a client's custom 1959 Cadillac.

Exploring colors and finishes for a client's 1959 Cadillac project...
A peek behind the scenes at the process. Starting with the tried-and-true box method to nail perspective and proportions, I sketch the essential shapes and components (taking time to design a wheel, too!), and then scan the sketch, and begin the heavy lifting in Illustrator. Around forty-nine layers in total, this one is relatively straightforward, with only minor custom changes, allowing for a little more time to play in the details.
No presets, meshes or brushes, just paths and pen tool.
