View Full Version : Helmet and Wheel
03 March 2004, 04:00 PM
I have recently "finished" two models, that are part of my ongoing Williams Formula 1 project.
Here are Montoya's helmet and the steering wheel of a Williams FW25 from 2003.
As ever commenst are very welcome - in fact any response is welcome.

DogSter: I like almost everyone except Ferrari:scream:
Only kidding, My project is based around the 2003 Monaco Grand Prix which Montoya won so.
To be honest with you, I think F1 drivers in general are a bunch of overpaid egocentric babies. Whereas rally drivers are much more friendly and down to earth and human.

I couldn''t agree with you more...
And I think that rally is far more cooler and maybe also more difficult then F1.

Thats brutal stuff !
The game models I render will likely pale in comparison to how this is gonna turn out.
Please keep us posted of your progress.

Helmet is amazing, but not sure about the steering wheel..
I didn't see a real f1 wheel and I cant understand what is that black material... The place to hold the wheel is realistic but that black thing... Maybe it need bump.. I am not sure..
Texturing work on the helmet is amazing, I can never texture sth like that :))

NICE WORK MAN :applause:
Maya or Max?
Nice texturing ;)

redogre: thanks again for the feedback. The texturing on the helmet was done in Bodypaint 3d. The black thing on the wheel is carbon fibre, and does have a slight bump map on it, but the bump is minimal as the resin that the carbon is autoclaved with would make it completely smooth.
Thanks for the comments ASW_Design, I did this in Cinema 4D.
