Entry for the Lexus IS Design contest. The challenge was to create an exterior modification for the 2014 Lexus IS 250 Sport that would stick out at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, and be possible within a ten week period.
The basic idea was to accentuate the elegant design motifs the car already had, rather than try to work against them. The red accents are carefully applied to bring attention to the strongest lines and shapes on the car. The contrast of white and black was also a theme, as they are opposites and stand out against each other. The scale pattern adds a little texture, roughly mirroring the iconic mesh grill without overpowering the other elements.
The assets in the Lexus package were used as a base. Free licensed textures were used in the background, but all other modifications and textures were made from scratch by me.
Hope you enjoy!
