View Full Version : Vehicle: Jaguar XK180

There, got my Jag ready:) Software: C4D R8.2. Time to model - 1 week. render time: 7 minutes.

Your modelling is nicely done, but your reflectivity is waaayyyy too high on the body - it's totally killing the render because it's almost making the car look like it is celshaded.
The glass of your windscreen also looks too flat, like plastic wrap - it just has no depth. Try thickening that a little :)

Your orange reflectors look very dull, you should try and fix that too :)

Actually a lot of the stuff is looking a little too dull, it's from your GI settings. The entire interior of the car looks like it's been sculpted out of clay.

So nice model, but your surfaces need some tweaking :)

I'm not really familiar with this model Jaguar, but where are the door handles? Windshield wipers? Seems in the hood? Also, is the front end really one giant piece? Seems the "bumper" should be disconnected from the rest of the front.

here's an image of the real thing. and yes, the front end is one big piece, no door handles and no visible wind shieldwipers. that's what i like about this car is that it's so simple. and one thing i've forgotter are the grilles on the hood.

Its nice .... the wheels looks very well made. The body has some isses that should be fixed... And I know that you will fix them. ;)

Hmm, I started to wonder how you are supposed to open the door of that car (even on the real thing!)...Will you have to open it using the handle from inside? :p

The only problem I can see is that the edges around the doors are too much rounded up. The rest looks good IMO...

Good job!

well its not a production car. In fact they only built 3 of them and then realised that they would be so expensive that they could never sell them, hence no top, no door handles etc. One of the major things I think that is missing is that the rear lights were made to look like eyes, I'll try to find a pic of them, but I remember that being a mojor cosmetic detail.

MimikOctopus: i know about the rear lights, i even have a closeup pic of that, they're soooo difficult to build:) but they look "different", never seen such lights before.
