SLR McLaren Mercedes by taw SLR McLaren Mercedes by taw
:w00t!: I've finished it. My first vectorized car with more than just solid colors. Actually the first vector I did with gadients. Ah well...just a new expierience for me. I'm still not satisfied how it turned out, but I guess it works for training.

100% Flash MX
Optical Mouse
15hrs of time

The Ride:
Top Speed: 334 km/h
Torque: 780 Nm
Power: 460 KW
Price: ~540.000

The SLR McLaren is the F1-Racer for "everybody" (who can afford it ;)). Mercedes style, F1 technology and AMG performance make this supersportscar possible. It is supposed to bring the McLaren race-history to the streets (and perhaps it should show Ferrari and their Enzo Ferrari what performance and style should look like). Anyway...if I had 540000 I would invest it into this car.

Oh my. This is sleek as hell! You rawk.
theredcrayondesigns Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009
Fantastic! I've spent the entire day working on one of my own, which is no where near finished. Just looking at this you've done a very good job especially for using Flash. There's no gradient meshes in there is there its all gradient tool?

Its awesome either way.

I really like it!!! I love your use of gradients. I have just recently started using Illustrator... I was wondering if Flash MX is any better for vehicles/mechanical illustrations. Any suggestions?
pyppo Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2005
hey, you have indeed one of the best vectorized cars i've ever seen. an excelente job really. congratulations!
by the way, i've managed to see one of those little 'beasts' when i was in vacations, and i took some photos of it. if you like, visit my gallery and tell if you like it ;)
