Lexus IS Design Contest

Fri Jul 12, 2013, 6:47 PM

Submission Due In

00:00:00

Submission Deadline: August 12, 2013

At 11:59 PM, PT - Los Angeles Time.

Show us your vision of the ultimate 2014 Lexus IS. You could see it come to life in the form of an actual modified IS, and be there in Las Vegas for the unveiling.

The all-new IS is built to stand apart. The SEMA Show is where automobile manufacturers and accessory makers create attention-grabbing vehicles to show off their latest products.

Your challenge is to make the all-new IS steal the show.

Use your favorite digital tools. Use pencil and paper. Use anything in between to show us how you would customize the exterior of the 2014 IS to make it the center of attention.

Watch the video above and explore the asset pack of 2014 Lexus IS images for inspiration.
Create your vision using your favorite drawing tool with or without the assets provided. Show us how you would make an actual 2014 IS stand out. (It's not a wrap. It's not a poster. Lexus and VIP AutoSalon will modify an actual IS based on the winning entry.)
Read the official rules and ensure your entry includes a minimum of two views and a maximum of four views of the exterior of the vehicle on a single JPG or PNG file no longer than 8,000 pixels in its longest dimension.
*Read eligibility requirements here. No substitute prize for the lease will be available.

You may use the materials provided in the Asset pack but may not use as a basis of the Entry photographs of the Lexus IS taken by others. No third party stock permitted. Licensed brushes and textures are permitted.

To create a level base for entries, no licensed 3rd Party wire frames may be used as the basis for an Entry.

Your Entry must be your own original work and may not include logo, trademarks, characters or any other copyrighted materials owned by third parties.

You may submit more than one entry.

Other restrictions and requirements apply. Please Read the Official Rules carefully and by submitting to the Contest you will confirm your agreement to be bound by them.

25 Semi-Finalists will be chosen by full-time deviantART staff.

The three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes representatives from Lexus North America, MotorTrend, VIP Auto Salon and Calty Design Research, Inc.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

True to the essence of the design for the 2014 IS
Consistent with the image of the Lexus brand
Originality
Potential as a actual executable design (10-week build time, no changes to engine, transmission or vehicle frame. Vehicle must be drivable.)

Qualification for the lease is not a condition for winning the contest. If first place prize winner doesn't qualify for the lease, no substitute for this prize will be provided.




DeviantART and Lexus are challenging you to show us your vision of the ultimate 2014 Lexus IS.  You could see it come to life in the form of an actual modified IS, and be there in Las Vegas for the unveiling! Get your tools ready and design a Lexus IS that will steal the show!

that would be weird of them to feel threatened if they flagged it for being too bad in their opinion
I saw a few that were on par, you should be in.

I do not think you qualify to make that call on my art or anything anybody draws,

your comment is not helpful at all in any way  shape form or fashion,

there are other colorless entries if you bothered to look at them,

I am not responding to anything else you say,

Good day

This is why you will remain in the stagnant position you are in and being oblivious to it will not help your lack of understanding, don't post silly drawings again.

But that could have meant online tools within a program or programs themselves as tools.
It didn't mention which medium. So it could have meant anything.

I only noticed this, yesterday, giving me only four more days.  Will anyone actually win this, if drawing it, by hand?  Seems "photoshopped" always wins.

Hi Moonbeam13, I've never entered into a contest before, as I'm pretty new to deviantArt. I just want to know, how do I modify the Lexus in the Asset Pack?  Do I print it out and trace it, or do I draw my own?  Please HELP!

however you want, but it should fit the base car asset that they give you.

The only thing I would add would be a protective strip on the side to shield the car against shopping carts and people like me who inevitably chip the paint of cars in adjoining spaces because the spaces are too small to clear the doors when they open.  I would not buy any car without such a strip, and because the function of the strip is so well known, I consider modern car companies negligent for not including them.  If some day I ding your paint because you don't have a strip and you parked too close to the edge of the space, IT'S YOUR FAULT!  Sue your car company for product defect, not me.
