BMW CS Transformer

Here is my latest work. I had some free time and experimented a little bit. A BMW CS Transformer concept set in a fiery and smokey battleground.

Done with Photoshop CS and a mouse ( I need a tablet desperately).

SCION xD – Shell Shocked

This was entered in the Skin a Scion competition held in DeviantArt.

This idea started with the factory red Scion xD. As the sporty stock shell/skin comes off and rises away from the car, it reveals a black xD with a snake skin paint job on a body kit inspired by the Desert Horned Viper Snakes with its distinctive horn behind its eyes.
I also integrated some carbon fiber parts with the snake skin paint job to create different textures but at the same time, still complimenting each other.
