Hey everyone. I finished up the car I;ve been working on, still texturing up the inside but not an issue for these outside shots. Let me know what you all think. I know the background is simple, but I want the focus to be on the car. If I could get XSI's depth fading to work right I'd blur the background out a bit. Oh well let me know what you think of the car. The 3d comic Im working on is still in the works for those of you keeping track, and ill be updating soon. Proubly within the next month ill have a major update for you all. Anyways critique away and keep creating......

I like the model, it seems too exaggerated in features but you never know what the future will hold.

Nice... I like everything apart from the end fin.
I think it should be more streamlined like the car body...

By the way Spirit2029, how long did you spend on the model?
How long on the design of the model?

Man... I want one! :bounce:

I thing you could use a better variation of color on the concrete, but ... Oh heck, who cares about the concrete anyway. The car is really nice. :thumbsup:

I would really like to know the structure of the car, can we see a wireframe or two?

Well I think that wasn't a bad suggestion at all. Would be nice to see it on an orage underground (u know, that color some gravel-tennescourts have).

Maybe add a bit depth of field to... :p :rolleyes:


Looks like it could be the next lotus elise (maybe should send the model to lotus...) :drool: :cool:

Great design, I like it alot..

But I agree with chepe297 about the fin.
"Nice... I like everything apart from the end fin.

Anyway, good work

looks like a great car...very nice original design!!

its just personal choice but I would like the top of the wheel arches to be rounded and cover the top of the tyre so you cant see it and maybe the front arch could be made smaller.


Looks great as it is...just my taste.:bounce:

So I guess I should have put this in the WIP forum seem as I decided to do a bunch more work on it. I decided to make two versions of the car, one race version and one street legal. The silver one is meant to be the race version, im thinking of doing it up with decals and a paint job later on. Anyways critique away on the update. I also attached the wire, and the car took a little over a week to build and texture. Im not sure what Im going to do with it in the future here, prolly just some nice stills. but ill see....

The new "rounded" fin rocks :buttrock:

pop
10-20-2002, 12:52 AM
Very cool design:thumbsup:

The only thing that I notice is that the front wheel wells look bigger than the back ones, Making the front wheels look under sized This may be due to the front wheels being turned at an angled.

I don't like ultra low profile tires on aggresive looking cars but that is more of a personal preference.
I would like to see a different wheel rim design and and a chunkier tire size on the car just to see what it looks like.

Anyway I think it's very cool, way better than that car from the SpyHunter Game!!

I really like the 2 version idea with the GT/street comparisson. Makes me less weary of starting a Poly car rather than using nurbs. Interior shots would be appreciated.

Excellent Job! :thumbsup:

Wow thanx for all the coments, ill get some interior shots up tonight for you all. The interior is fully modeled, textures are still in the works though. But I think im going to take a break from the car as its all Ive been working on for the last week and a half. Prolly just do up a couple more nice renders.

yeeehhha! you roxx! i prefer the rounded car or then for the first one, change Spoiler or add a "Spin" or "wing" on spoiler's Center with that car'll look more agressive, i found too soft and not really aerodynamic for the first.

About tire, increase it a bit more.
Anyway Great Great Great Design!!!
i hope see this in a short. :)

Okay as promised a new render, sliding out looks kewl..... I also added an interior shot and the orginal concept which when I roughed it out looked way too much like a van, so I made the angle alot more aggressive. Looking forward to some comments and maybey some suggestions as to how you would like to see the car posed. I think im just going to end up doing a bunch of stills for now, maybey ill animate it later, but im curently starting a new project. Doing a whole new demo reel. So stay tunned for that too I guess...

10-20-2002, 01:56 PM
Oh yah for those of you interested...
The car is a rear engine, proubly a turboed V6. Most likely around 350 hp, 300 pounds torque, and of course all wheel drive. It would be quite fast and handle very well I imagine with such a wde stance and low profile, and I imagine it being able to keep up with most exotic cars quite easily. Price tag would be most likely around $100,000 canadian, dont know what the is in U.S.

Im actually going to enter it into the 2nd Peugeot design contest. If I win they are actually going to build the car as a concept for auto shows with the posability of actual production further down the line. So who knows maybey you'll see it on the road in a few years. I know I want one!!

Hey Spirit,

Great looking ride you've got there.
Like the design, wich looks original. :D
Maybe a bit too much holes for my liking, but still....

'The car is an all wheel drive ofcourse'.....
Euhm, I definetely don't agree with that comment.
Any great sportscar has rear wheel driving. That's almost a standard, because than you can go sideways through corners, with the back breaking out. Overstear, you see...
You get a much better feel with the car, than when the car will be all wheel drive. Just a thought. ;)

About the interior :
Like it, but I would definetely change the pedals... They're just boxes!, when you can give them a nice metal look or something.
The handles on the stearing wheel can also use some details.
I would two-tone the interior colors, you get a much better look and it looks more classy. The chairs look great by the way.

One final comment :
That pose you used for the render. That smoke is way off, even for an all wheel drive you can never get that sort of smoke on both the wheels. The back will always have more smoke, because the car moves sideways, swinging the car around. Then again, I would loose the all wheel drive thought.

Not to be a true critic, but these were just some opinions, and you did ask for them... :D

Keep it up and show us some poses.

Cheers.

Spirit2029
10-20-2002, 04:43 PM
hey thanx edge, if it was to be all wheel drive I think it would be setup with a 70/30 setup. Meaning 70%power to the rear, and 30%to the front, like they have in the rally cars. I will modify the smoke alittle bit too after you pointing that out. Like I said the interior is just to fill in, Im not sure if im going to detail and texture it outright yet. Thanx again for the comments

If you're going to enter that 2nd Peugeot design contest, I think it's best to do the interior as well...

But that's also a good excuse for me... Really want to see your skills creating a cool designed semi-futuristic interior. Also, I agree on the 2 color comment.

Cool power slide Pic!!

For the interior how about semi-polished aluminum racing pedals, the ones with the ridged holes drilled in them?

Can I see full shot of the car with the doors open and/or with the hood/trunk open?

I like the colour of the car, Classy!

Anway, Good luck in the competition!

Just wanted to drop a note to say that I love the street version with the new fin.

Perhaps the car paint could do with a new shader though? Other than that I think it's pretty cool, would love to see it animated in a fake car ad.

Okay guess im convinced now, going to have to put on another big pot of coffee and get this thing completely done. Im going to finish up the interior now, and do up the race version paint job, decals and all. Also that suggestion of a car add was good, and I think I may persue it. It would be a good showcase. So stay tunned I guess, ill keep the updates coming. Maybey I should get this thread moved to the WIP, hahhaha I thought it was done. Nothing is ever done when it comes to CG art. anyways thanks for all the coments, they have reinspired me to do some more with this car now....

10-21-2002, 01:26 AM
As mentioned before, the pedals should be re-worked. Make the gas pedal narrow at the top , the bottom fatter and overall the gas pedal closer to the brake pedal for easier heel-toe. I'm looking at it from merely a design perspective. Secondly, ditch the gauge pod underneath the steering wheel...staring down towards your crotch will generally get you nowhere except off the race track. Just mount them on the A-pillar.

The shifter is set too far back on the center console. Your elbows will literally be behind the seat back. Move it farther up along the console...basically where the lip of the indentation is.

But, hey, it looks very cool. Good luck in the competition! :beer:

Mangaka604
10-21-2002, 01:40 AM
Oh yea, don't ditch the AWD...I have a '95 Eagle Talon Turbo and a 2003 Impreza WRX...AWD rules. RWD generally have more oversteer than a AWD car. Besides, AWD is more practical in the real world...you can drive quicker on a greater variety of conditions compared to RWD. That's why Audi's with Quattro was banned from rallies.

Your car reminds me of the Toyota RSC concept car. Awesome work!

Hi! Good job...its really nice and smooth...
I got a comment on your design, and while I'm at it, a comment on the lighting:

I really dont like the rear spoiler, it looks like an add on from a third party company, and I don't think the rear bumper fits the design. Maybe a rear bumper molded right into the shell smoothly?

I think the lighting needs a bit of work, a lot more contrast so your reflection really packs a punch....have you considered HDRI?

take it easy

Can we see a closer shot of the interior it look like some nice detailing.

Well this obviously isn't fair, since this guy is a demi-god come down upon us, but take a look at his shaders anyway: http://www.cgchannel.com/news/showfeature.jsp?newsid=531

Hey thanx for all the replies again. I've noticed a few people mention the fact it isnt photoreal. Well truth is I wasn't trying to make it photoreal. I like my art work to have a little bit of a cg look to it and a little of my own style. This isnt a cop out of doing the hard work of making stuff look photoreal, I just like this look better. Anyways ill have some more updates up in a few days most likely, im actually waiting on a job possiblilty right now.

Exactly ! That's what you want in a sportscar. You want to be able to go sideways through corners, wich is way more difficult with AWD. :D I still agree with my comment that it should be RWD instead of AWD. Fighting the car with oversteer is what it is all about...

Originally posted by Mangaka604

Sure, but who needs a practical sportscar? :curious: Sportscars need to take you to the edge, to drive to the limit.
The Subaru 2003 Impreza WRX is a great car, but it is built for rally sports.
Those rally cars need to drive different conditions like gravel, stone, grass etc. AWD fits the needs of these drivers.
Why are all the great sportscars such as : Ferrari's, Lamborghini's and ofcourse Porsche's RWD? They are built for speed on ordinary roads. The feel of the car is much more important.
This weekend I drove a Maza MX-5 again with RWD (okay, not a typical sportscar like a Porsche, but it will leave some track marks...) and it is some much fun.

Just an opinion.

Cheers.

10-21-2002, 04:03 PM
oh yea, that's more logical futuristic design, it is like a lotus race car future design.

Oh yea, XSI (ah, i should blame mental ray instead of XSI) depth fading and depth of field is bad. i suggest you to render out a separate pass as z-depth. and use that as an alpha channel to do the thing you want. like fade out or blur it manually.

EighthDecay
10-21-2002, 06:30 PM
Wow look what I was missing out on, Really great design, I like all the mixtures of edges and roundness, Also I like how the seams all tie the car together in an odd way, and that interiror is way impressive.

Good luck on the Peugeot contest, I also entered, but still trying to nail down an idea for it.

rondo
10-21-2002, 06:54 PM
First let me say that this car is really cool. I like the style and the look. It's a realistic view of a futuristic car.

now the critique .... The only thing that bugs me are the seams in the body panels, they look too far apart and rounded. It gives it a "scale-model" look. Like it's not full size.

Just an observation.

Now - like many people have said, I couldn't even get close to modelling something this good. VERY good job. Looking forward to seeing you finish this one!

Spirit2029
10-21-2002, 07:17 PM
still working away on an update, proubly tomorrow. Anyways wanted to thank everyone for their comments. Also I have noticed a few people say they could never model something to this detail. Well dont say never, this is my first car, and really its just alot of hard work. There isnt really anything challenging about it, just coming up with the idea for the design. The actual modeling part was easy. The main tip I can give anyone is rough out the model to begin with. Decide where you want the seems to be, then just start from the front and work to the back. Make sure all your points line up at your seems, and dont be afraid to use a fair amount of geometry. Anyways ill have more soon. Thanx again.

Spirit2029 this is a great design :thumbsup:
Looks really hot and where can I get one (with the small tailfin ;) )!?

Just one little thing: this is 3D so it should be easy to put the camera on the place of the driver's eyes. It will probably show that the bars between the front and the side windows are a bit thick and it's a little hard to look outside. Maybe make the side windows a bit bigger.

Anyhow... 5 stars from me :)

Lovely, only a few things that I think that I should point out. On the last render you presented upon us (the one with the powerslide) the car looks like it is floating a bit, maybe a repostioning of the light? Other than that the car is great. The interior needs a little texture. Other than that it is GREAT!:buttrock:

11-05-2002, 12:17 AM
Wooohooo! That car is just awesome!!!

I'm not that keen on the rounded shapes though, especially not the back of the car. I would like more of that aggressive look. The front wheel well is absolutely ka-schwing. But I guess it would just be too much work to make these changes, and unnecessary since the car looks fine the way it does.
But mainly I would reconsider the wind-shield (maybe too round at the top) and the back. It looks kind of cool as it is though.
The powerslide picture is really cool too, what I would like is for the wheels to steer the other way to pick up the slide (or whatever you call it). And I would like to see some kind of motion blur on the wheels to make them seem to spin.

But it really is a great model and I could do almost anything to be as good as you! :applause:
Good luck in the Peugeot contest!

IMO you might have a good change in the peugeot contest cause peugeot's concept cars are really weird already (not in the bad way) just look at this link (http://home01.wxs.nl/~west3308/eng_concept.htm) and scroll down.
maybe you should just make the front lights litle more like peugeotish, you know :cool:

Somehow i can't help it that this car looks a lot like the McLaren F1. It looks as if this car was modelled to be a McLaren F1, then after you finish it, you extruded some parts, increased some sizes here and there, added some additional mesh smooters and got this car.

This is by no means a negative thing :) It surely is a cool car, but i just can't help seeing resemblence with the McLaren... :) But i love the car! Keep up the good work.

awesome modeling!! (it seems a lot out of lightwave..)
and also some awesome renderings... (great materials.)

i'd just love to animate so powerslides of this car... (must eb why im modeling my 350z right now...:buttrock: :buttrock: )

taking about that... some other comments the turbo v6 of 350 hp (with i guess a 6 speed transmission) is almost the same as a reel 350z (nissan). my comment would be that for your car this isnt really enough. :surprised maybe id put something like a 426hemi... thats a motor!! :buttrock: but maybe not ...:scream: get it to 400-450 hp ...and that would be a bomb!

hehehe. anyway great car.

now that's a car I'd wanna drive!!!!
personal taste: I'd get rid of the spoiler completely for 2 reasons:

1)the car looks fantastic without it. The roundness in the back is very cool.
2) It looks too much like the spoilers people have been putting on their cars lately. The car looks too futuristic for the spoiler.

my 0.02!
:buttrock: :buttrock:

Bring it on!

yeha !
the rule of life is hard
some people love cars
some people love speed
some people love girls

some people love pictures

your model is pretty well done
nice design.
But it would have been nice to see more attention to
the rendering and the lightning...
just one picture with a great composition
:]) like a finished work.

looks awesome Spirit2029
The interior work is just to cool.
What kinda engine does it have?
looks pretty compact. like now room for one
I would do something with the rear diffuser it looks kinda funny to me, maybe add one or two slots down there, I think it would clean up lower rear, but it kinda reminds me of a Honda for some reason. Just a few ideas to think of, other than that it just Kicks.

Buying tires in the future will be expensive (for what looks like 32" rims). :D

I'd say, give this car a nice twin turbo inline 6cyl.

I'm very very impressed! I'f I was a car manufacturer I would hire you instantly :cool:

This Car can have only one name:

Have you presentet your idea´s to manufactures yet? Try Lotus or TWA! I't looks like something they would like. If not Try out AlfaRomeo....

Good Luck

the car does look really nice but how about some flying doors that open up like the diablos or the old mercedes 300 that would give a nice feature

i really like the tyre details the rubber looks like real and at all how about if u put the whole car in a real environment a street or so ?

something at last some of your links from the first threads are broken here maybe u can fix them

Someone said earlier that it looks like a McLaren F1, but I think it looks more like a highly stylized Lotus Exige.

http://home.cfl.rr.com/digitalskunkwork/exige.jpg

Not that I think this is any less of an original idea, it is definitely a clear vision of some styles that will most likely be seen in the near future. (especially for supercompact hybrid sports cars- which will probably need to be extrememly light and small to be able to go fast on super-efficient engines/electric motors.) And it is enough of a style departure from both the McLaren and the Exige, with great orginal elements (the doors, etc.)


Overall it's and awesome model. I love the modeling style, and I wish it luck in the concept car contest (if it hasn't ended already! ):thumbsup:
