Hello all,

I am currently working on a concept of what the Nissan 180sx would look like if it where to be brought back. All is brushed execpt for rims and badges. A total of 4 hours work so far and am planning on putting much more into it.

If a skilled choper could please help explain how to do reflections please send me a P.M.

Thanks so much,

D.C.C.

Let me know all the flaws, as I want this one to be one of my best.

Update #1:



Update # 2:



Update # 3: (Reflections)



Update # 4:



Update # 5: (top door lines)

^^Thanks.

I am still trying to figure out how to do the side reflections; so it will flow with the body lines of the car. I cant find anything on how to do reflections. Can any one help explain how that can be acomplished?

Thanks,

D.C.C.

i like it! as you know we are both doin a similar thing with a totaly rebrush and itve found that the reflections are the hardest part so far! but its looking gd! maybe bring the opacity up a little on the reflections? as the bg is quite dark and the car is very white!

Reflections are kind of flat as they are....you should use the same pictures you have used for the reflections but put them through a filter, I think liquify is probably the best for doing curves and stuff all in the same reflection on one part of the car. Also, figure in perspectives on the reflections, they should get smaller going towards the rear of the car...

It just doesn't look right, the reflections are just straight pictures, go out and look at a shiny car, no reflection you'll see will be an exact mirror image of anything that is at a distance, things get warped/squished/twisted/mangled when they are looked at in a shiny, curved piece of painted metal.....look to the real world for your help in what you need to do to make your reflections look right...

EDIT: Imagine your eyes are guns, 'shoot' the piece of metal you are trying to reflect, the 'bullet' will hit the metal and glance off and hit something.....that something is what should be reflected into that piece of metal.

The side of your car looks like it has one piece of metal facing kinda up and one facing kinda down, the one facing down should reflect the ground and not much above the ground, the piece facing up shoud be reflecting more of the tops of buildings and sky.....just use your imagination and think about it before just cutting out one picture and placing it on the side and turning down the opacity, it just doesn't work like that in real life....


Sorry for the long post but I've been trying to think of a way to explain reflections, this is everything I've thought of that can be put into words...I'll try to make a sort of tutorial on what I'm trying to say, not so much HOW to do reflections, but how reflections work in real life...

EDIT AGAIN: Just put this together real quick to try to help, let me know if you get it...... http://www.photoshopchop.com/forum/s...860#post169860

^^Sure, I will P.M. you with a much higher res.


Oh joemomma95,

Thank you so much for the help. That is some great information about reflections and where they should go. You have inspired me to redo all of the side reflections and get it as good as I can.

Again thank you so much,

D.C.C.

I might take you up on using this car to make a tutorial....we'll see....

As far as changing the bg to find more reflections, don't do it....see my latest response in the reflection thread I made, you should find some interesting ideas on where to find reflection sources...
