I don't know how I could chose anything other than my vector drawing of the 1928 Ford Model A to demonstrate my proficiency in Illustrator. This was the most time consuming project this semester and it was definitely worth it. Since this project, I have been very comfortable with the pen tool. I did attempt to use the gradient mesh tool, but I was already more than half-way finished and it didn't look very good with the work that I had already done. And I don't think it looked any better than the way I was originally doing it just with layers and the blur effect.
There are so many little details about this car; I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to make it look like a photograph... but i did!
