Ok sorry for scrapping the swift so early on but you guys were right so better base image and hopefully my first propper chop in a while not much done so far but still persuing the matte paint finish with minimal brush would like to achieve a nato green color spent about an hour or so up to now thoughts on the color....

on a new background do you guys think this will effectivly pull off the matte effect?

Hmm depends on what type of background your going for...although its a matt color you still have to take into consideration the highlight areas from where the light is hitting it and it will also have areas with more hue/tonal color than others. i wont comment too much yet though untill i see it in its new home :P

Ok background changed somewhat still needs lots of work but unfortunatly thats where im heading work lol

changed background
added reflections in windows
worked on under car shadow although this may be reworked not 100% happy
obviously the wheels will go and will be lowered
get rid of the ugly us spec bumper
brush simple skirt
possibly a small viynl or something along the lines of
and the hardest part to figure out the lighting situation and add subtle refs / adjust highlights / lowlights

anyways here where im at so far

gonna need some serious ref work on the windows and bodywork (even though its matte) it fits the bg well but obviousley u need to sort shadows and bits, keep at it ;)

majorly peeved atm when i open my psd it says "this document contains adobe photoshop data which appears to be damaged. continue and ignore this" then all i get is a black window :@ anyways to recover this id just spent about 3 hours tweaking adding a roofbox alloys and doing the undercar shadows properly i have a .jpg from a while ago i could work with but :@:@:@

wheels have very bad highlights on the black section and the front wheel has to much positive camber so take that in at the top, roof box kinda works but the rack needs some work to blend in right....and what did we tell you about refs and lighting? BAD BOY!!! go away and work!!!! now!!!! NOW DAMN YOU!!!!! :D
