View Full Version : Vehicle: Old Batmobile

09 September 2002, 11:55 PM
Hi! This is my first post here, but you don't have to spare me, I prepared myself mentally for weeks before I finally hit the new thread button.

I did that for a 15 second animation at school (you can see it in the movie gallery section of I did the animation with Simon Des Rosiers, but this part, the batmobile, I did completely. It was modelled and textured in Soft 3D (3.9.2) but I juste recently rendered this pic in XSI, by importing the old Soft 3D scene. In the animation, we had to composite that over a camera projection from a photo, so it still has the same lighting setup that we used for that.

Tell me what you think!

Tumerboy: Thanks! Nice Gir icon, by the way, did you cut out eachframe one by one?

Big D: Thanks!

PureFire: Thanks. But actually it's not skidding backwards, it was just parked in reverse.

Sweet stuff :p

Got to love that old Batman stuff ... Looks like you caught Batman's eh ... "Homer Simpson physique" like he hade in the old TV-series.

Great work !

Great job on the Batmobile !
He looks really good, and you used a special rendering system to my opnion, because when you look at it swiftly it almost looks painted. :D

Really great to see somebody who is original enough to model an old school kick ass ride like the Batmobile.
Can you post some more views?
Oh, and not to be a critic but : the parking in reverse?..... hmmm.
I would change that part. I know Batman is fast with his ride, but I've never seen him park somewehere backwards :)

Keep it up, cheers.

Sweet vehicle. Nice job all 'round. Brings back memories. I used to have a stainless steel toy (around 12 or 14 inches long) of the TV show Batmobile. The little pipes in the back shot out little red darts. Too cool.

Again, nice job!

Oh, hey! What's with the skid mark in front of the tires like that?

Now let's see Batgirl's motorcycle next!

I only Have a Question....

I really like the model and also the render...But it is only Render?

I mean...Did you introduce any kind of Postproduction? Photoshop?

60's batman is the best batman :)

Ok, no more skid marks!

Edge: I'll try to render some more views and see if they're any good. The interior is not detailed since we didn't see it in the animation. The rendering system was quite normal but maybe it's the lighting? I used a light dome for that one.

ACFred : Thanks! As for Batgirl's motorcycle, hmm maybe. Wonder if I can find as many reference pictures as I found for the Batmobile though.

navalguijo: Well, the onlything I did in Photoshop was to put the batmobile and the shadow layer together, and correct a weird specular.

RobinOberg: Kaplang!
