New Migraine shot

Second month of the year and a second Migraine shot. Hurrah! Although truth is, I started this shot over a year ago as well. There were a lot of passes for this shot, and I've found a couple to post. One of the first was the CGI car pass, which was rendered out of XSI in wire frame images. The aura, which sqews out of the exhust, was generated as particles in XSI. However each triangle is hand drawn animation, attached to the particles as an animated texture.

Basic shaded passes of the car and aura were rendered as a base layer, which I added detail to by hand in Photoshop, one frame at a time, to simulate the look from the original arwork. I took some libeties with the artwork, by keeping eveything black and white exept the aura, to give it tha a bigger punch.
