Lotus Elan

Car art - drawing of my Plus 2

PostPost by: Steve S2 » Fri Jun 14, 2013 7:11 pm

Just for fun I've spent some time messing around with Adobe Illustrator and have drawn this picture of my Elan. I did one in a similar style some years ago of my Elise. The picture is made up of hundreds of objects that are individually coloured / shaded and layered on top of each other. I'm no whizz with Illustrator so it takes me a long time, but I'm chuffed with the end result and am having it printed onto a t-shirt :)

Nicely done, Steve. Never used Illustrator, but my playing around in Macromedia Freehand never looks quite that good on complex images. It will make a great T-shirt.

Looks really good. You should branch out and mention this under General Lotus Discussions. Feel like doing an Elan?

Yes that looks really good. Please do an S2.

Slightly confused by everything since the invention of the wheel.
