KITT Scanner by valaryc KITT Scanner by valaryc
I completely reworked the front end of this piece after looking at several references of KITT's bumper because something just looked really off to me for the longest time and I finally figured out it was my angles on the sides were way off.

After 3 hours of modifications, I am proud to finally say this is the way KITT's bumper should have been in the first place and my perfectionist itch is scratched for the time being.

If you look real close you will also see I put in the light panels for the fog lights which in all of my reference pics has them heavily obscured by grills in the front.

I made this entirely from scratch in photoshop with airbrushing and gradients and also using what references I could find of KITT's front scanner/bumper. None of which were as head on as this shot here.

Please DO NOT use this image without my permission, it is exclusively for a book cover and protected under copyright.

Feel free to share it as long as you give me proper credit.

EDIT - Due to some printing issues, I had to rework the front bumper a bit, I also added more detail to the hood and a bit more shine to the right side.

I cannot reveal the exact title at this time but it is a guidebook to the original series of Knight Rider. It will be the first time a guidebook has featured Q&A with the cast and crew, unreleased press shots, and rare behind the scenes photos and promotional materials all in the same book. It will be hands down the definative guide to the original four season series and will also briefly touch on the making of Knight Rider 2000.

It will be released this summer. I will post more information about it as well as the title closer to the release date.
