Oka 1st gen Eclipse

“1st gen. Eclipse”
At the time, super-realism was the rage in the art world, and I myself was fascinated by realistic expressions. It was my first time to paint a car, and I was a bit anxious, but being a car enthusiast by nature, I accepted the commission as a culmination of my love for cars. I used an airbrush to paint the export model based on the photo . Although the black body was shown in the brochure, I actually drew the red body with the same mechanisms and seats, and I remember that I proceeded to draw the two in parallel in order to increase the density of the finished work. I remember the painstaking effort I put into the overlapping parts in order to make the entire body look transparent. Sunao Oka
