Hey, I don't normally get excited for car renders, but I love the concept.

What even gets me going more is the detail of the ground.. Stunning.

Great job man. Well done.

10 October 2004, 06:52 AM
nice render..and concept! it looks so real...great you have interior designs for this baby yet?...i want a car like thi!:love:

10 October 2004, 06:58 AM
If i were a lady, I'd give my virginity to you!man, I like your car!great render!

10 October 2004, 07:46 AM
:) Nice Shapes.. I like it :P

10 October 2004, 07:56 AM

Fantastic work on this one. :D

10 October 2004, 10:19 AM
Yop,:bounce: It's a good work, it's superb, I like much his aggressive design, personally... Returned is super clean, lives V-ray!!! :buttrock:
Good continuation...

Schyssta grejer! :thumbsup:

I LOVE the rain drops! They add a bit of noise/chaos to the otherwise very smooth/clean shape of the car. Very nice rendering! The lighting is very realistic!

I think maybe the choice of camera angle is a little odd - I'd place it a bit higher. It feels like the view is from the eyes of a person who is sitting on the ground. Maybe tilt the camera upwards a bit, placing the car more of in the middle of the picture? Also, the parts of the car closest to the camera (in both pictures) I find a bit too dark - I can't see the details :( in my opinion it would be better to let the sunshine hit the parts of the car that are facing the camera ...

Anyway, these are my direct impressions... you might want to ignore them ;) Really nice work!!

Nice looking render and concept for racing car.

10 October 2004, 12:32 PM
DAAaaamn.. that's one hot car... I love the environment you put it in and the reflection of the car in the puddles of water, it looks like you even put little beads of water on the car.. superb!!

10 October 2004, 12:50 PM
mamamia thats a hot concept and a very cool rendering

10 October 2004, 12:53 PM
I agree with the others, amazing work, very beautiful.

And the asphalt is so real and nice with the water, could you give a couple of details on the asphalt, it looks really nice with the wet glossiness look you put up there.

Very good man!!

10 October 2004, 12:55 PM
very good consept. I like your design. and waterin land is cool. the car is real monster. I want drive it. :buttrock:

10 October 2004, 02:44 PM
Fantastic man!!

RENDER looks so REAL!!!

What's the car name (is it a Saab :) ) ?!?!?!

Show us a few WIRES!!

10 October 2004, 05:30 PM
nice render and design

10 October 2004, 12:03 AM
Awesome Car , one of the coolest "original" designs I've seen here for a long time.

Keep it up dude .

10 October 2004, 09:01 AM
wonder why thid didnt do frontpage

Mark Patterson
10 October 2004, 09:15 AM
nice render man!

I had a car from Prodrive once...

10 October 2004, 03:40 PM
Please open one door, so we car see the interiors. Very realistic render... It´s only me or the back view is a bit blured? (I mean the car)

10 October 2004, 06:20 PM

and a wire as someone asked for.

10 October 2004, 03:50 AM
Can I ask you,how did you get this great looking asphalt+water ???

10 October 2004, 10:40 AM
Grade A rendering - the use of the water gives it a boost over the usul renderings of vehicles. Def. front page material!

10 October 2004, 11:44 AM
Superb quality render, the water really adds to the realism!

10 October 2004, 09:55 PM
The asphalt part is quite a beautiful work. This looks to me like a nice composite map with finely adjusted bumps and masking for the water. Very nice!

10 October 2004, 05:04 AM
damn... impressive... nice job compositing and the reflection of the car....! son, do another 1 or 2 and you have this as a crazy part of your demoreel for the first 20 seconds blow them away.haha.

11 November 2004, 06:06 PM
Very impressive and inovative design, nice concept! The render is something else; simply
fantastic! Like others, how about a little "how to" info on the water puddles? Congratulations
on a job well done! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 06:27 PM
In my first post i wrote " the ground is made with vray displace"

So if you have vray it´s not that hard to make at all :)

11 November 2004, 12:39 AM
Good work!
I`m like Vray render,it`s exllent

11 November 2004, 06:36 AM
Awsome modeling but to tell the truth i'm more interested in the gound, wet pavement then the car.

11 November 2004, 03:50 AM
the front doesnt look like its very aerodynamic for a racecar, but the lighting and modeling is awsome.

11 November 2004, 10:20 PM
Hey Grid.

Whoaaa, nice car dude. :eek:

The only crit I can see, is that the frames in the front (Supporting the grills), looks a bit like plastic, try to make em' chrome (If you do, the front will almost look like the new Audi thoug :thumbsup: )The same thing goes for the wheels try puttin' some chrome on it.

Keep up the good work -
Karsten Sørensen

11 November 2004, 11:17 PM
Very Nice! In addition to the car looking good, excellent follow through with the background environment, nice touch with the wet ground.

11 November 2004, 05:49 AM
Karsten: i do not want totaly crome parts on this car, it´s not supposed to
be a blingbling crapy car ;)

traptinmyself113: if you would put a, lets say DTM racingcar beside this one,
you will see that the front on my car is lower than the DTMcar,
so i think it would work to race with this one also :)

11 November 2004, 11:05 PM
Perfect!! Very beautifull:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 10:22 AM
Wow. That's some great work :thumbsup:
Only thing I can notice is that the rims look a little... Pale... Or something. They just seem a little off.

Karsten Sørensen
11 November 2004, 07:27 PM
Well, you don't have to make em' all chrome, just a bit more shiny then, plz? :wavey:

11 November 2004, 12:43 PM
fantastic. i love the ground. i wonder if i can do the same with cinema4d...

11 November 2004, 01:43 PM

Check out the following thread:

11 November 2004, 06:54 AM
very nice model! The ground is so real!
if you increace more highlight,the feeling of metal must be more real...

11 November 2004, 07:43 PM

11 November 2004, 05:55 PM
Really nice, like the overal shape,curious to see what the driver's view would be from a forward visibility standpoint. The virtual ground efx color (red) and redwall tires work really well.
The render is beautiful.

11 November 2004, 09:09 PM
I like the hyperpaint look. Not quite a painting, not quite a 3D rendering. The ground looks amazing, with the puddles and all. So what is that, a Volvo? :)

11 November 2004, 03:53 AM
...and the winner is Grid with his high profile low profiles.

Totally stunning job. What method did you use for the wet ground?

11 November 2004, 11:57 PM
Well I guess I don't need to give praise as all those before have already done so...
A bit of feedback would be good, eg. render time, modelling style & environment setup.

Love the super low profile tires & the ground. How many concept cars have you modelled??

11 November 2004, 12:04 PM
rendertime was about 1hour, (2h on the one with DOF) on a 3,2 ghz
ground is made with vray displace, so i guess it´s using a few 100k polys for the asfalt.
I´ve done a few conceptcars now, and some real ones to.

11 November 2004, 04:43 PM
You have done a great job !! :thumbsup:

Good materials, good light, very good idea to use a wet floor and rain drop on the car. :applause:

Waiting for you next project !!! :p

lucky man
11 November 2004, 12:55 PM
Here in Nairobi we would call it ,"Ndai ya nguvu", meaning a superb car.I like its environment it makes tha whole master piece realistic.i need tips from you coz its so futuristic that i feel like am in tha next century.keep on keepin' on.

11 November 2004, 01:16 PM
That thing is sweet. Better design than any i have seen in video games and such.

11 November 2004, 03:38 PM
Very nice concept and design....the ground texture is amazing btw~ Great job

11 November 2004, 03:45 PM
i like the concept of the car but reminds me of an old video game on the old playstation called S.C.A.R.S i love it

11 November 2004, 03:05 PM
great job on the car i love but in you new renders it seems that the tires are dry and the floor is wet. just thought you should know.:scream: :twisted:

12 December 2004, 09:06 PM
You've won my desktop wallpaper selection!

12 December 2004, 02:54 PM
Nice work.

The water and asphalt, is really good,...
gives the car a very realistic feel. :)

12 December 2004, 12:02 AM
I want that car... =T... just so believable. blew me away:thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 12:23 AM

:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

Fantastic textures


12 December 2004, 01:13 PM
wow, looks really cool, love the reflections


12 December 2004, 11:55 AM
Nice with some swedish in the top... snygg bil

12 December 2004, 07:44 PM
Ouch ! You strike hard : it's a stunning rendering !
Maybe It could have been nice to see better the reflection of the car in the water...

12 December 2004, 07:30 PM
You have the honor of recieving my first post :)

I just wanted to say that people like you will be the ones that create the future of cars to come.

01 January 2005, 02:06 AM
greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat concept

02 February 2005, 01:04 AM
AMAZING ART WORK so realistic just wanna get in and drive off.

02 February 2005, 01:23 AM
I cant believe that this is a model and not a real pic. Excellent job. How did you do the lighting in the scene?

03 March 2005, 05:56 PM
Really cool, like maximizing on wheelbase.

03 March 2005, 07:35 PM
Hi, i really love this render and i think that's a fabulous work !
But can you give our some details about making this sort of ground ....

i've the same just front of my house !

Good job and thank you for your answer.

03 March 2005, 04:00 PM
It looks very animated I like the style

04 April 2005, 07:25 PM
Looks ace, but the grey bits on the front and back give the impression they're not textured. Chrome them up baby > like the rims!

05 May 2005, 03:25 AM

06 June 2005, 11:50 AM

08 August 2006, 03:45 PM
Fantastic design, I love the geometry of the car and the possibility of this car ever being developed seems believable. The render's great too, it has a very 80's marker-feel to it. Great piece of work well -done!
