I really like this. pretty simple. but your renders really look nice. the 3rd one has alot of personallity. I would love to see the 3rd one in an enviroment, or mabye with just a "real" floor texture (carpet or something). 4 out of 5 from me.

Good job. Lets see some wires.

Great stuff, really has the look and feel nailed, especially the clear pieces, those are really kicking ass. The micro gaps between the bricks add a heck of a lot to the realism as well. :thumbsup:

I too like the third pic with the little guy..maybe add some tools?

I'd say the only thing you're missing is the lego mark on top of each bump, and on the wheel hubs and tyres..unless they're getting washed out by the lighting or jpeg compression.

Also an area light type shadow falloff might be nice, though as much light as is hitting it, can buy the hard shadows locally.

yeah! the last image reminds me of when i used to play at my friend's house. he had a huge lego city with roads. I really like the octane guys!

Those are great renders! Your plastic shading is superb (especially the windscreen) - I have to admit that until I scrolled down and saw the wires, I also wondered if they were perhaps photos :blush:

Very cool work, I loved Lego as a kid :)

Thanks for putting that last image in a enviroment. the caustic's shadow has a bit of a dithering problem, or it could be the jpeg compresstion. superb work. If i could put the bounce ball here i would.

wow! thats cool man ! good lighting but i think u should add decorate the enviornment a bit(just an idea!)

keep the good work going!:thumbsup:

WWOOWWW! nice :thumbsup: How did you create that wonderfull and realistic reflection on the windscreen? you used Max and Vray right?

I created a legotruck too a while ago.. One of those technical ones. Guess it needs a little bit improvement! :p :)

wow, so many replies with a dull model.. :)
about the renders i have to say that vray does most of the work. i tweaked a bit with the plastics though, otherwise i just set up some black and some overbright cards + i'm useing the uffizi hdri and an omni light. too bad i only have the demo :)

Really cool renders! Did you model the car with Leo CAD?

Edit: Maybe stupid question but... How'd you make those wireframe pictures? Vary cool! :p

hi ! i added some dirt but i don't know if it its done any good..

http://www.freeweb.hu/danielboros/cgtalk/2.jpg

Pttr, what is LeoCAD ?
i made the pics with the vray wire material. (the only way with vray)

Hmm, personally I don't think the dirt adds realism or anything... I mean, it's lego, so it's not going to leak oil or something :P

Some more people or other cars would be nice though... Or maybe a pit crew changing tyres or refuelling the car

I don't like the dirty version... If think it's because you made the dirt too big, and not to the good places... and the oil thing it's not appropriate (like bobvork already said)

I prefer the version without the "octane" things...

The transparent pieces are really really nice, no crits !

IMO the colored pieces need i little spec and it's almost perfect :thumbsup:

The lego text is a bit strange, in some places i have the impression that the bump is like this (sorry i don't find the words in english)

--__--

They should be like this

__---__

I think you did it right, it's maybe due to the compression or the size of the image :shrug: .

HA HA

What we should do now is everyone interested should make their own lego car and pit crew and make a full staged lap and audience and make a lego animation showdown. Who has the best lego car in 3D lol. And Race them to death like crashes where all the parts just blows into pieces. That would be sweet and fun.


Great scene by the way, tough I dont mind the dirt for me my lego was more old chewing gum that couldnt be scraped off. Of maybe a bugger (its been a long time since I played with them hahaha)

Good job! :thumbsup:

this is excellent, looks so real. i thought it was a photo too until you posted the wire image. to obtain such a realistic effect did you use specific types of textures, lighting or envirnment ?

well done.

that is really really good.. it's so simple but you did such a good job with it..

wish that you would spend a bit more time and make an awesome animation!

needed, this is amazingly real stuff. Id never say it's CG, but u know, nowadays you cant even tell if it's real or CG. Have you tried to show it to the LEGO company? This is a great piece of work; it deserves to be shown everywhere.
Yo, it would kick more ass if you modeled their technics stuff, Or at least more complex Lego systems, because that car, even thought it's good, is not that interesting. But i think if u modeled something that realistic, you now have no limitations man.

i think the dirt's hilarious...and please do stick with simple LEGOs, that's the fun of it. In fact i'm going to try to make my own.

I could use some help with your explanation of the HDRI rendering process which you used.
