View Full Version : Concept car

07-21-2008, 04:19 PM
I've been wanting to start something earlier. Circumstances and work kept me from starting until now. I started this on Saturday, I figured I'd do something I had experience in. So far my plan is somewhat fuzzy. I know the deadline is just around the corner. I just hope I have enough time to render.

Be careful you don't make it look too much like the Dodge Viper!

Looks like a Viper - Vette mix. But then again - it's hard to design cars that don't look at least "somewhat" similar to something else. It still looks good so far - keep up the good work.

The rear has a nice shape, but the front reminds me of Lightning McQueen. The air intake looks like a big smiley mouth.

I've been working on the rear end, The mor details I fill in the less it will look like other cars. The Grill I have planned should make it a lot less McQueenish.
I'm also taking the opportunity to play with color schemes.

I had some time today so I worked on the tires.
I made all the textures in lightwave.

I changed things around a little.

Doh, forgot the pic.

I really like your paint... mind sharing how you got it looking so nice?

I'm glad to share it.

No problem.

Well I continue to refine the details. The headlight are coming into focus.

More done on the front. I think I should be able to finish modeling the car by tomorrow.

Thought I'd try and kick the tires once.

Well I'm just about ready to start rendering. I got my set about finished. Still have to set camera angles, and tire rotation. maybe a few other things.

Since I'm about out of time, I started the final render last night. I wanted to do more but adding to the scene (DOF, particle FX) just made the software crash. And when I got past that, I just couldn't get what I wanted from it (at least not as quickly as I need it).

Well, I uploaded my entry, now just to wait. :yoda:
a pic from the final render.
