the colors are spectacular and I love the shading

the rims arent too bad, you just kept them too flat. Most of the times the spokes of the rim are a bit to the inside in the wheel, and not completely flat with the tire. Great pixel, and I love the way how you used the dithering without compromising the shine on the car...

Nah, I really love the colors still. Also on the hood, I suppose you could try enlargening the shine as it looks flat, or move it over a bit. Still loving it

No, I was originally intending to use more colors, so I just cooked up a couple of grays and blues to start blocking in the shading. But I liked the way it turned out, so I just left it at that. Admittedly though, most of the stuff I`ve been doing (including a lot of stuff thats not been posted) has this desaturated, brownish/gray look to it. Perhaps I should do a bright pink fluffy bunny next, just to break away a little. Yeah, the dithering on the doors doesn`t really work that well.

Did you use the colors from your portraits set? They look similar. Anyways still nice. I like everything execept the doors, don't dither them really.

I really like this.  Faved it but forgot to comment.  I agree with Hatch, looks very Amiga-ish.  Like it came from a car selection screen of a racing game.

Thanks for the comments:)

@Hatch:   Thank you:) (Sorry, no moustaches this time..I`ll try to throw one in on the next one) Glad you like it.

@Dogmeat : Yeah, youre totally right. I got too focused on drawing a car, and got caught up in trying to draw it realistically and didn`t "get" the energy and flair you often see in concept drawings with its often very bold lines and shapes.

Now this is hot. All of your stuff is so Amiga, I love it to bits. Really Nice colors, tinting. It's got my vote!

The rims don't seem that bad to me, maybe using the 2 shades up would blend them better :/
Great entry nonetheless.
