racing miku 2015
At the time of this writing, this is my most recent Itasha and also my most ambitious!
While the last three also had an idea of how they wanted their finished cars to look like, we had to work on background elements by suggestion. For this one, I was expressively told that this Itasha was to be a full body wrap. Characters would be overlaid on top of area filling backgrounds and adorned with logos and other things race-car style.
After months of work, three character images were finished along with backgrounds, totaling well over 100 layers, logos that had to be redone by hand, a disclaimer of fan-work due to the amount of logos requested, and a large multipage instruction booklet to the printers. The design was finalized early March 2017 and is currently in the process of having all wraps applied.
