Patrick: Like most I suppose, I have not viewed all of SM's clips and those interest me so I will have a searchski, thanks.
Here's one.......Woodward Dream Cruise 2018. At just before the 4 minute mark, this was the first time I'd heard any "official" mention of S650......Chris confirms he's working on it. He also discusses the Bullitt and other Mustangs parked up in Mustang Alley.I am also a fan of Chris's work. I know there is dislike for Stangmode, but Chris was featured in a few videos about the GT500 design process.... good content.
It's not easy. Been trying to get reacquainted with Maya now that I'm home. Haven't touched 3D in years. Fumbling my way through the program while attempting to model a GR Supra - figured it'd be a good challenge with all the strange/interesting curves the vehicle has. I think the most challenging part will be the texturing and rendering... as I don't remember much of that stuff. But I'll worry about that when I'm closer to finishing the model.See, that's the issue, Tob. I've been using Illustrator's main competitor, CorelDraw, for decades so I'm quite familiar with 2D illustrations.
The problem is two fold...3D and rendering, both are complex subjects and while you can do some 3D work in PS, it's not even close to the same.
Unfortunately, 2D illustration software such as Illustrator and CorelDraw, can't do either of the above two functions.
Thanks for the thought, though.
PS. Your Instagram Illustrator guy is VERY good and, very patient...those are incredibly complex drawings, especially the car.
So true. However, I think the irony is that the quy who played such a huge role in designing its appearance can't afford it...In the US a guy like him cannot afford a GT500 because of student debt. In Europe, where education in most countries is almost free, a guy like him cannot afford a GT500 because the car is taxed so high it costs double of what it costs in the US. Funny world.
Perhaps the choice is to pay down debt before incurring more debt. May simply be a disciplined young man. Many others would benefit from his example...My father once said to me "son, life is all about the choices you make."
I'm sure there are others that make less money than Chris that have managed to buy a 2020 GT500 while still living comfortably and paying their bills each month. If Chris really wanted one he'd have one.
Assuming that's the case, it's refreshing to see someone who doesn't compromise for the sake of "instant gratification." Still sad that college costs so much though--different story altogether.I suppose everyone makes their own financial decisions as they see fit. Being disciplined is a choice and if he is, he'll get what he wants.
