Inspirational Art : José Campoy

This drawing of a Dodge Viper car has to be one of the most photorealistic drawings ever created using Xara. It's been created by José Campoy and was discussed on the Xara Gallery forum, where Jose has graciously posted the file.

In order to create cars of different colors it's necessary to use the linked color system which Jose had not done. But another contributor, Ron Duke, who does some seriously good car drawings himself, updated the file to use named and linked colours. So now you can alter the named color 'viper base color' and all the highlighting and shading change automatically and instantly. Any color Viper you like.

You can download the original .xar file and the one Ron updated from the above link.
