Car rendering by Mike Kim

This car rendering is made by Mike Kim, I decided to publish it here because it has all ingredients to make an excellent car design illustration so for us it is a good example to study to learn and remember few rules to make a good illustration or rendering for our final presentation.

So the strong points here are:

Composition on paper is very dynamic, the perspective is slightly tilted just few degrees is ok. The tunnel is a great environment to express speed and the exit placed on a forced left vanishing point is just right to accellerate the eyes viewer.
High contrast and good balance of cold and warm lights and colors.
Car is placed very well like is passing in front of a camera infact its linework is a bit distorted (lens of a camera almost a fish eye perspective), this element helps the dynamic effect of the composition.
Great deatailing on the car that is the real subject so good detailing with strong focal point ( around Malboro type graphic) this is the first reading subject.
-The  small far car on the right gives sense of speed but also reinforces the story of the composition. This is a race and that car is there to give us the perception of racing and passing. This is the second redaing subject.
