Hello everyone,

How much do you charge for a custom one with custom colors and a different track?

Is this a digital or hand drawn digital hybrid? Is the finished product tangible or sent electronically?

Talking

To answer your question is that it is drawn on a cintiq screen. Basically a tablet/monitor which is the same thing we use at work..... See the photo below

The final image will be printed on 15x33 inch luster photo paper.
In addition I will email you your image if you want to use it for a desktop background or even your avatar.

I also have the same image in the Elise I can do and will soon be doing a front 3/4 view of both cars.
I also can do original pencil drawing/water color for 100.00 per sketch in your interested in more traditional media.

Check my blog www.cincyslim.blogspot.com



Regards,

Zach

Wow, this is REALLY cool.

Do you have other examples - say side or front aspect?

I'd really like one but my creativity is lacking right now - maybe you have some other examples to show?

What exactly do you need from me to do it?

Can you PM me?

FWIW... Zach was absolutely awesome to work with. I gave him a few pics and a list of mods visible from the rear, including wheels that aren't even on the car yet. He pretty much nailed it. Hell... he even got the heat wrap on my U-bend pipe. Can't wait to frame and hang this sucker, then have him do a front view to go with it.

To me, 65 bucks for a custom 1 off piece of art specific to your car is an epic deal. I got to choose my favorite track, and even the verbage that goes under the pic.

Thanks Zach!

Brad thanks man for the compliments it was a pleasure working with u too...

Low key sorry man can't do that.....there are some limitations.

I can put any mods, tracks custom paint ect. As well as if you want me to design new wheels, graphics for your vehicle if you are building a race car.

These are very cool! Not to nitpick, but I think you have the tread pattern on the tires inverted. Now I have to decide which Exige I'd want done!

Zach - just paypal'd you. Gonna do front and rear views.

REALLY impressive stuff.

I'd bet you can get lots of guys on various forums to do this - I'm imagine the Lambo and Ferrari guys would love this too.

I want this! What tracks can you put in the background? I might do a new print for each track I have been on. Looking for Portland International Raceway.

I will send pics once I get my license plates. I want people to see it's custom LOL
