Hi ppl,

I am posting this 3d modelation exercise, and I would really appreciate some critics about it.

Many thnks

well, I really thought that some critics would come, but is the model so bad ( or so good)?!
I guess I will have to wait a bit more.

i like the concept of it...

modelling is also good...not amazing obviously..but better than

add some things to looks a bit too plain...

the concept itself is fun to work it tho...

i should start on one too:beer:

i took a better look at it...

bring down the mirrors a bit (driver isnt looking for airplanes or

and also in the fron you can do some air intakes...possibly a hood opening if the motor is in the front.

Many thanks ppl,

Buggy166: you are right, well the car isn´t finished yet. I want to make it to run the next "24h Le Mans", so almost everything is missing, but I am pleased that you like the general shape.

Scienide: thanks.

I hope soon to send some of the new samples.

Once again Thanks,

You have the wrong reflection/environment map in the last image. Its a city background and the car is reflecting trees.

Hey, I'd say you should give a bit more detail to the front, cause you can see that it has too little polys there after meshsmooth but otherwise it's a good concept.

Keep up the good work !

Hi, I didn`t like the last variation. It looked a bit kiddy, by the way.. Give your car a cool colour, or try to make it look like painted with perlascent paint..

that would make her look better!

the model`s not bad, but try to change environment...

Keep up the good work!

I like the concept and style of the vehicle, at the moment I think that the level of detail is making it look more like a model than a full sized vehicle, the environment certainly helps a lot in the final image though. I like the wheel rims but I think it is these that are adding the most to the small feel of the car, perhaps a more detailed and more traditional style here would also help.

Very nice work.

Hi ppl,

Tautas: you are right, I will try to change it next time.

Scienide: yes, I have to add more details. Still need a lot of work.

"make it look like painted with perlascent paint.." I am not sure if I understand that Scienide, could you be more especific ?

Frank Dodd: well, as everyone said before, the car looks a toy. Need work I know...

The problem is that I am still learning to use some of the technics to model, for example, I would like to separate the body of the car just above the wheels, but everytime i try to do it i lose the rounded shape. I guess I will have to work harder.

Anyway, many thanks for your comments, because you are really helping me to do it better.

So if you would be so kind to comment on these next
renders, I'd appreciate!

Não tem como ficar "Calado" - ficou muito bom.

I like very much the last two pics. I love the concept as well
