Part of my homework is recreate 2 cars in illustrator and photoshop. Because of both cars are vintage, so it was difficult to find professional reference photo. I took sometime to figure out the colour correction.
Ferrari Dino 246: it was hard to create such a complex image in Ai. I used a lot of vector, mesh and point to pick up the color from the original photo. Used gradient to create metal, shiny, texture like a car.
MX-5: it was much easier to use brush and paint tool to build up the colour in Ps. Especially the wheels look more realistic.
