My first completed car model. This was my first SERIOUS attmept at a car....I made this quite a while ago in C4D.

Hmmm...Not sure what happened to the "Pro Shop" logo there, and those wierd reflections in the window. I think I used some shaders when I made it, but didn't have them installed when I rendered this.....

good work for a first it was completed a while ago I guess you wouldnt want to add more to it.

I just feel you need to add some geometry to the underside of the car...

I think that for a first attempt this is very good. But the rendering and some of the modeling make it look very plastic. If you had called this a model of a model of his car, you would be right on. But for a realistic car there need to be more done with the lighting and texturing. And some modeled parts look more "stuck on" versus integrated in to the car. But you did well, and the more times you try to bulid something, the easier it gets, and faster too.

i think its a bit hard to tell, since all the stickers are somehow distracting too much.. maybe you should post a version without them, and then try to work on the shaders and stuff, to get a nice dark car paint, and then later on slap them on again.......

but as far as i can see, the model does look quite nice...

how much of the interior did you model, since in that picture it all looks a bit... black. maybe work on the lighting a bit

Your model looks pretty good. If you're looking for some feedback I made a collage of different Monte Carlo pics. Because of the file limit here it's not going to be big enough to see. If you're interested, I could email it to you...just need your email address.

Here's the interior minus the seat.....And no, I sure as hell don't want to play with this one anymore. :)
