Arts of the Oni: Kindy Shine Silvia

- September 2, 2013 - 3

Nissan Silvia s14

This S14 is a good reminder of why so many scenes still take their cues from Japan. It might not be to everybody’s tastes, but you cant argue with the sheer amount of innovation going on. Aside from the pearlescent teal body contrasting with the red interior, the wheels have been highlighted in 3 separate colours to create the illusion of even greater depth in the wheel, with a gold rim outline to accentuate the tyre stretch. Airbrushing has also been used to create artificial shadow and emphasise detail on the front bumper. It’s a technique often seen in Japanese hobbycraft, and looks like it translates rather well to full scale vehicles. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details, quite literally in the case of this demon cambered Silvia.
