Surface by timsilva Surface by timsilva
I started this in late March and then worked on it occasionally for short periods of time. It is my first "car manipulation" based interface. In retrospect, I can look at the final product and confidently say that 99% of the work was done by myself, which is cool because it means that car manips are a fruitful genre within interface design that I am not closed off to now. I always thought of it as cheating, but in many ways its harder than brushing or using the pen tool.

Background pattern uses a pattern from Axertion's Ultimate Carbon Patterns Pack: [link] (It's the top left one.)

Original car: Lotus Evora

+favs & comments are great appreciated. :)

It is manipulated from a car. Pretty simple. I guess English isn't your first language. :P

I haven't found any tutorials on it, but basically, I took a car photo that I liked, and cropped sections of it and converted the basic shapes into a template design. It took a long time, since I did it all manually with the brush tool, the selection tool, the pen tool, and so on. It can be tedious, but the outcome is worth it since it looks so cool. :)

Oh nice! I have actually seen some of his works before I think, his style looks familiar.

Yes, I have had a few of those moments. My four favorite designers of all time have all complimented my works before. Cade, Jeff, Jimmy, and Lance. It's nice to be "approved" by those who have inspired you so much...

By the way, I want to submit this interface to Area01's gallery. Should I send in a submit thing or can ya just handle it for me? (That is, if it's acceptable. :D)

This was a new genre for me, I've never done a manipulation before. I actually like it a lot tbh, this metal looks cleaner.

Ya huh? I could have rounded it on the sides too. I made it vertical and straight to align with the content better tho.
