Autemo: virtual tuning and car art

Autemo is an online ‘chopping’ community of digital artists who create renderings and illustrations of tuned cars based on clients’ projects and requests.

Australia-based company Autemo was founded in 2009 by Mark Farrington (MK211) and now the website counts nearly 85,000 posts and 5,000 members.

Autemo falls into the virtual tuning – also called “chopping” – category, which indicates the 2D modification of car pictures using raster graphics editing software such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

Modifications such as aerodynamic bodykits, wheels and carbon-fiber body panels are super-imposed and integrated on a stock image to increase its aesthetic appeal.

Artworks include both realistic and pictures and more visionary images, where choppers and virtual tuners can experiment with extreme modifications that could not be easily produced in real life.

The website also hosts a yearly competition titled “World Team Battle”, where artists are grouped in teams competing for their country – an idea originated on Photoshopedup.com in 2008 and Photochopworld.com in 2009.

Autemo’s services are targeted to car workshops, tuning companies and also car enthusiasts who’d like to have an artistic rendering of their car – or dream car.
