doesnt look very finished to me ,

IE: there are no doorhandles. :)

I agree with Sheep Factory. Just the details of the car should finish it.
You've so far done a great job, but go on. I would take another look at the edge of the hood and the side-skirts.
And the roof part of the door. It could be just the render, but it looks like it doesn't add up.
Just a thought.

Cheers. :D

A couple of things though:

You should really look into creating some new shaders. Take a look at a real impreza (take a photo) and you'll see what kind
of reflections and specularity the car's surface recieves.

The model seems pretty solid :) But like Sheep Factory said... needs more detail.

There are some really good examples of car surfacing and detailing on this board so check it out.

Other than that, nice one!

Thank you all for the constructive comments!

How do I creating new shaders? I only know about textures.

I also tryed to make a HDRI render, but it doesnīt look good. What should I do to make it look better?

Or is it because my sphere is all white?

Hmm, I think you should really start doing some raytracing tests for the reflections. Remember, specular highlights are reflections.

Play around with some different reflection maps and send in some test renders. You're model has good shape and definition so you should really take advantage of that and go crazy with the surfacing :)

As for the HDRI, you said the sphere was completely white? Try using an image with a bit of detail, eg: a cityscape or forest.

Keep it up!

hey, it looks great. do you have any other views? you don' have to turn on GI, it looks great.

Thanks! :)

I have one more view. More are comming...

Looking pretty good, so far. Only thing I see that's kind of off is the door. Stock imprezas have a thinner door than that, the body flares out a bit around the wheels. Check out this pic ( to see what I mean. Mind you, that's a 22b which has bigger fender flares than a normal Impreza.

After looking at that site I also noticed that the front bumper sticks out a bit too much, these pics ( show how thick the bumper is.

Thak you for the info but I actualy created the rally car without the texture (donīt think it looks good). I think the doors are just right, or what do you say? Do you have any other view of the Impreza rally car? I only have this picturte.

Check out this site ( it has a good number of pics of the Impreza WRC. The door doesn't have that ledge to it, but I can see how the image you are working from makes it look like that should be there.


Oh by the way, if you ever want to model the new Impreza WRC check out the Subaru rally team ( site. They have some very high resolution images of their new prototype car there :)
