An 'Itasha' Impreza by NotoAyako An 'Itasha' Impreza by NotoAyako
A request by :iconkenblockfan123:

He actually asked me to work on an Impreza hatchback (GRB), but then we did a 'bargain' so finally he decided to request an artwork of an Impreza GDF, also known as 'hawk-eyes'. Well... it's not like I can't draw a GRB, it's more because I've had an artwork of an Impreza GDF in progress already, or more exactly it's an artwork made by using my husband's Impreza as a reference although there are still some differences if compared to the real car. :iconsighingplz:

Well... after all, sorry to 'trick' you out like this buddy, but I hope you like this Impreza. :iconarigatouplz:

This artwork is also intended for :iconpete7868:

I just wanted to show him how a 4 doors car will look like if it's turned into an itasha. Some may see it as cool and fancy, but maybe some other will consider it tacky and ricey.

K-ON pics used in this artwork are collected from various sources, I didn't draw them and I don't own them.

The version without stickers can be seen here.

Well... It should be cool, otherwise I would feel bad for the owner of the car that I use as reference here, my own husband. As I said earlier this car is based on my husband's car (except for the K-ON stickers), so perhaps most of the credits belong to him. :iconhappyhappyplz:

My car is an RX-8, equipped with Ings+1 body kits. It doubles as a drift car and daily driver, at least before my doctor prohibits me from driving. :iconshy--plz:

awww how sad... i got a impreza GC8 with a cwest body kit carbon fiber trunk and hood and a STI adjustable wing, with the differential adjusted to the rear and i use it for touge
Reply
:iconnotoayako:
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh... I don't know if touge is also popular in Chile. But I bet that must be nice. It's not an FR but at least it gets most of the power transmitted to the rear wheels. Perhaps with such option you can drift without having to worry that a spun out will happen. :icondragonnod2:

As I said in my deviation, here we have an Impreza, too. A GDF (hawk-eyes) with chargespeed body kits (just like in the deviation, but different interior and without stickers) converted into RWD. Seems like my husband took off the front propeller shaft and strengthen the rear axle so it can transmit all the power from the engine. I don't really know the detail, though since he tends to keep it secret from me. :iconderpyshrugplz:

Ahaha... I'm glad you think so... :iconeheheplz:

Well... in my opinion, JDM cars are the best car for itashas base. I would feel sorry if they turn those European or American cars into itashas. Too bad that's already happened, though... :icondontunderstandplz:

Thanks a lot, mate...! :iconawwplz:

I'm so glad you like it, I personally love itashas although I'm afraid to apply such stickers on my car, that's why I chose a kagutsuchi sticker for my car since it doesn't look flashy or tacky. :iconsweatplz:

Yeah I know, I rather have it a clean car and simple and nothing on there unless its for like a car show, then maybe ill put some stuff on there, hehehe.

Well... the original car used for reference is a clean car, with just some small aftermarket decals on the front doors. :iconahemplz:

I'd really like to participate in a car shows or modification contests, but then I know I wouldn't have any chance of winning since my car is all - performance with just a little portion for show. :iconeheheplz:

Yeah you should one day and bring your RX8 car to the carshow and let people look at it and stuff.

Oh hehehe, like stock car but all power under the hood of the engine! ^^

Oh... Street sleepers! I like that kind of cars, too. It deceives your eyes since you think it's stock, but it'd smoke you out once you mess up with them. :iconeyepopplz:

I've heard a rumor that police cars here in Indonesia are such cars, especially those Galant VR4's and Mazda6. News has it that they busted a speeding Lancer Evolution IX in highway once. :iconhmmplz:

Yep yep! I love those too as well and yeah I know! The Sleepers!

Oh wow! Yeah police got some faster and speeder cars nowadays and I seen them around too... like they drive a corvette, mustang, lambo, 300s and much more to catch speeders that have fast cars! Pretty crazy!

:iconnotoayako:
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Uh-huh... in order to catch wild speeders cops need to act wilder, that's the reason of them having fast cars as their patrol cars. Gallardo in Italy and South Africa, Caparo T1 in UK and I've heard lots of brawny muscle cars are used as patrol cars in US, like you mentioned, Vettes, Mustangs, Chargers also don't forget that manufacturer which specializes in cop cars, what is it named anyway? Carbon Motors? :iconconfusedplz:
