American vs Australian, or maybe this is just an old battle between Ford and GM, or Holden to be more exact, depends to how everyone sees it.
I gotta admit that the Mustang the most difficult car I've ever worked on so far. No wonder it takes me months to finish, despite of my recent vacation to Kediri, of course.
This artwork is mainly designed for my dear friend
and that's the 2D version of her behind the wheel. She actually wanted a Dodge Challenger but since the Mustang is all I get, I decided to just proceed with this car. As for the modification, it's done based on ~jmig3
's design, of course with several changes to lower the level of difficulties. Perhaps the most notable change is the conversion of the Mustang to RHD. Yup, this mustang is actually based on Performax International's GT500 so credit mainly goes to them.
As everyone has known, Performax International is one of several garages licensed to perform RHD conversion in Aussie. The only unfortunate thing about the conversion is, it increases the price of the cars to about three times their original prices.
The artwork itself is supposed to depict a tandem battle in Formula D Asia Series, Jakarta Round. That's why the two cars have Indonesian license plate; The Mustang has Jakarta license plate -on it's windshield- while the Monaro has Bogor license plate. The license plate on the Mustang can be read as "BEASTY", it is possible to get readable license plate in Indonesia as long as you don't mind the extra fees.
Anyway, I think I still need some improvements on this artwork so constructive critics and suggestions are highly appreciated.
