The modeling/texturing looks good. However they appear to be very tiny, the scale is off.

nice work :) my only suggestions would be to do a render from a lower camera angle, which would probably fix the problem of them looking small/toy-like. and other then that, maybe a less glossy material for the tires...as right now they look like they are fresh out of the mold and still kinda greasy...seems like they could due to be dulled down a bit, if nothing else, at least on the tread

capn : i think that might be why it does look small [if you think it does ;)]

chot: oh yeah i played with it in photoshop a bit after the render of course ;)

Very nice model and ditto textures. Just the windscreen doesn't seem steep enought to me.

Could you explain us your material settings. The gloss and reflections and all look really sweet! :)

Wow, it looks really nice. THe "fuzz" adds a nice effect to it. I cant think of anything negative to say about it, great job.

here is the render with no work in ps


it is rendered with hdri, the material for the main car body is just the usual brazil material with a fresnel falloff map [pretty much]

Very nice.. but i think the wheels look really really tiny.. but perhaps thay are supposed to be that small?

Hmmm... what is it reflecting then? Some people put large white planes above their model, but then their reflections just look like... well... like they're reflecting large white planes. Often with horrible aliasing going on as well. How do you get it this smooth?


Also two things I noticed...
1) the material is single-sided and here and there it's showing gaps (especially with the orange Mini)
2) the top edge of the windscreen seems a bit messy, both modelling and texturing. What's going on there? :)

Other than that, they're just lovely :)


Last question... what did you do with the glass? You seem to use shadowmaps, and that normally makes anything behind semi-transparent objects really dark.
A trick I recently discovered to prevent this, is to turn off shadowcasting of the glass objects. Did you do this too or did you find another workaround?

Cheers!

i think the hdri image in the environment slot, was slightly blurred [as a few are] which would give it a softer finish - but one could also use glossy reflections and would produce simliar reflections i think

the flamed version is a bit older so i think i havre fixed where some of the parts a bit dodgy, like above the window, and down below the main headlight

the window do have 'cast shadows' turned off ,yes :)

here is a wireframe

Good job!
I like the lighting and reflection, looks like rendered by cinema4d.
But I don't know why, just a little feel that is a toy. maybe the image's size. Keep your post :)
