882 - Iterative Lotus 7

It's been a powerfully busy week.  My blood pressure has been so high, I think I could shoot plasma from my fingertip like a gun.  The perfect time for some art therapy. 
I've got this tremendous public domain snapshot of a 1962 Lotus 7 courtesy of Wikipedia user Bull-Doser.  I rotoscoped it in Painter so that I could quickly block in the shape.  I fixed the colours in Photoshop to make the car more festive, i.e. Christmas red and green instead of the traditional black and yellow.  Then I painted over nearly everything to get the basic details and metallic shine.  It still needs a number of details and a holiday background. 
Since this is iterative, I will show progress as I am making it.
