My new project. Not quite sure where I'm going with this one. Im just going to design it and see where it goes!


Modifications: Hopefully most of it will be brushed apart from the wheels and maybe an intercooler and other shiz.

Well I've changed the bg slighlty and done a bit more to the car. The barrier is gona be a slight problem now as it looks too clean this side :S

What do you think so far? Anything there that you think desperately needs changing?

Looking really good...Any chance of pm'in me the donor for the wheels?? No prob if not. :) Its pretty jagged at the top of the windscreen, are you doing the highlights last? its looking really flat on the roof.

Update for today. Refs are a bit, 'meh' atm but its slowly coming on. Im thinking about adding a sat nav or a couple of gauges on the dash soon ish too.

Internets still dead but here's an update. The side of the car looks crap on this screen compared to my laptops. Darn.

Any suggestions on what to improve?

Damn bro it's looking very cool.
I never liked the speedometer (or is that an rpm) on the windshield.
Other than that great atmosphere and all. Keep at it.

Yeah I'm not sure on that either tbh. I might bin it, I'll have a ponder!


Quicky update. Brightened up the side a tad as some people said they couldn't see much down there. Any better? Gonna try and add more highlights down the side and the front soon too.

It's still very dark. Compare it to the BG. The ground and what not isn't so dark on the BG. Also the wheels are too bright. It looks as though they are under direct sunlight.

Brightened it again a tad but not too much and darkened the wheels ever so slighlty!

I think I'm gonna keep it as it is now unless I do find something amazing. I like the led style futuristic thingy I've done ;) Thinking about doing it in some more chops in the future.



Update! Not a lot done but more cleaning, highlighting, refs etc. I think its nearing its end now.

Comments?

Gotta give you some credit bro, you have stuck with this and made some really good progress.
For me, I simply wont do WIP's but its definitely good for others to see just how difficult these things are and the amount of time and effort thats involved.
I also think you have recieved some pretty good feedback that has helped you along.
Heres a couple things I see.
I know you are reluctant to do so but you have to darken the wheels. I mean REALLY darken them.
Also your ground shadow with the sun at this angle should be alot larger on this side of the car.
Get the head lights in there and get something in those dark spaces in the bumper, IC and some piping maybe. Even if you reduce the opacity to where you can barely see it, it will look a whole lot better than just a black void.
Keep at it and good luck.

Thanks guys, especially you, PSDavinci! Here's another update, done some of the things you've said.

Intercooler and piping added, added a small mesh in upper bumper vent bit, darkened the wheels and added more shadow.

The IC is so dark that if you didn't tell us that it's there I wouldn't notice it, so I think it should be a bit lighter. What do you think about puting windshield wiper in the midle of the windshield. (I always like that detail on cars). And definitely make new head lights, and maybe some shadow to the wheels.

I agree with Igor, I wouldnt of notice the intercooler if you hadnt said

Update for today.

Made the intercooler a bit brighter, more refs/brigthened up a few areas a tad and enlarged the shadow underneath the car. And added some lights/brushed around them, which you've probabaly noticed :P I'm not 100% keen on them but they are the best I could find + they are growing on me (I searched ages). I'm getting sick of looking at this now lol, it needs to be finished asap.

I think with a little more work on the black area around the lights those lights could look pretty cool! It's looking really good! IMO it needs a little more detail but that's probably still coming right?

Headlamps are a bit funky though.

It looks a lot better! But I still can't help thinking that it's too dark on the one side.

I dont know whether you did some of the lights but but they look a lot clearer on my screen now lol :D

Brightened it up a bit and have the whole car especially the bonnet.

Ah yeah I did do more to the lights ;)


Another update - done quite a bit more highlighting, brightened the bonnet and so on. I might have a quick look again at college today if I get time but this could be about the final update unless anyone sees anything that needs improving...

Nah fair point, I'd rather you say what you think I could do to improve so cheers :)


I've slighlty brightened up the interior and added a couple more refs inside it/darkened the refs on the windows/added a slighlt reflection on the skirt and lip but they aren't that visible. I think its done lol.

Right, another time for an update. Darkened the rims a tad, added a mirror bit on the right as someone else pointed that I missed that out and added few more refs.
