    Very cool! Nice work keeping it readable; I see too many flashy pieces that look impressive but the message gets lost in a tangle of armour plate and flames. Every once in a while I churn out something like this, but local clients will not pay anywhere near what it costs to produce. I just donate the art and use it as a portfolio piece.

    Note: Everything but the lightbulbs. They don't look right on the more graphic background, and somehow detract from the exquisite dimensionality of the cars.

    Very nice work. Cars are one of the most fun things to draw in vector. What kind of time was involved in this? 16-20 hours would be my guess.

    Way better than I can do. You are a true artist.

    Are you using a Corel tool to make the 3D look on Lead East? Whenever I try using Bevel, I can get a 3D look, but cannot get pretty colors like that.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! To answer some questions...
    Signage - yes, all 100% vector
    RJSsigns - best way I've found is to draw the rear-most objects first and work your way to the front. Saves time in having to re-order elements.
    Uncle Bun - The 3D bevel in the Lead East logo was done using the contour tool. I did a small inside contour of the base text, broke it apart and copied to the clipboard. Then duplicated the inside contour and moved it slightly down and to the right, selected both copies and used back minus front in the shaping docker and set the color to white (as this was the highlight piece). Then I pasted the copy from the clipboard back in, duped it like last time but moved it slightly up and to the left and then did the back minus front again. This one was colored a little darker gradient than the base text colors and will be the shadows. Gives you more flexibility than just using the bevel tool, imo.
