The first skech...
Basically the scene will be an explosion in a road tunnel. I will try make the scene most dramatical and aggressive possible.
I wait crtcs
c ya

09-07-2005, 07:11 AM
Impressive - are you going to comp in real explosions or simulate them with a 3D package?

09-07-2005, 12:50 PM
This will be fairly sweet if you pull it off well! Good luck with the comp!

09-07-2005, 04:07 PM
Hey man.. niiiiice idea :)

dont give it up !

best luck.. c ya !

09-07-2005, 04:12 PM
Muiiitooooooooo massa !

Verryyy good work !

good luck

09-07-2005, 04:19 PM
Kick ass, I can just see this looking like a still from a move! Can't wait to see it finished.

09-07-2005, 04:57 PM
Awesome concept, lots of car models to make though.Cool:thumbsup:

Perfect Lion
09-07-2005, 06:39 PM

09-08-2005, 03:46 PM
hi Lauro,
great idea, the concept is very nice, good look:thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 04:02 PM
Hi Lauro,
Nice sketch. I hope to see more. :thumbsup:

09-09-2005, 04:56 AM (

Hey, thank u guys! thnx for the replies!

Magnemar - Maybe i use one 3d plugin... I don't know yet...

Just a small update of the tunel...
c ya

09-09-2005, 06:17 AM
Reminds me of a scene from Independence day. A great start on the tunnel. It is a bit different from your concept. The concept shows the tunnel as being more round. Not a big deal, just checking to see if you noted this.

09-09-2005, 04:19 PM
hey man.. nice start.. waiting to c more ups.. ;)

c ya ! best luck !

09-09-2005, 04:57 PM
Good start. Keep the updates comin!

09-09-2005, 07:25 PM (

thnx Guys!

Nichod - Yes, i got some inspiration on this movie... A will make the tunnel squared, i thinks is better... Thnx by the observation.

Rafa - é nois veio! valeu!

Another one uptade of the tunnel. I put some new details. hope u like.
c ya

09-09-2005, 07:30 PM
Oh man , IT`s a nice lighting for sketch without using any Global illumination .

09-09-2005, 07:57 PM
hey man really nice modeling.. keep it up.. c ya !

09-09-2005, 10:27 PM
hi Lauro, nice modeling, keep going...

09-10-2005, 05:28 AM
Make sure to add some drainage grates in the tunnel along the sides of the road. Its coming along nicely. I like the detail of the telephone. Maybe add a pipe from the telephone and the light? Many tunnels won't have the wiring into the walls but rather contained in a pipe that runs to the ceiling and then through the wall. Just an idea. Keep up the great work!

09-10-2005, 01:34 PM
This will be fairly sweet if you pull it off well!

My thoughts exactly.

09-10-2005, 07:42 PM
Very nice Lauro! :thumbsup: , good to see you !

Good Luck !

09-10-2005, 07:46 PM
This is great. You doing a good job so far.
I think the tunnel could be a little taller so you could make the explosion bigger and some cars flying higher, more like your initial concept. But this is just my vision, however you do it, it's your call.
Keep up the good job.

09-11-2005, 04:26 PM
hey great concept, what a crash you have. good start man:thumbsup:

09-13-2005, 01:45 AM
I passed for giving an incentive. I am always reading the topic, congratulations for the concept!!

09-13-2005, 02:45 AM (

Thnx a lot you guys! I'm glad you liked
The model of the tunnel has been finished, i put some new details, for exemple the drainage grates along the sides of the road (Thnx By the observation Nichod!) some news pipes an lights, bla bla bla..
i'm start the modeling of the truck too. I am making him in low poly because it's far from camera view and also becouse the number of polys will be very high.
I hope u like and best luck for all

09-13-2005, 02:50 AM (

Update of the truck...

09-13-2005, 02:55 AM
wow man.. amazing.. i love the tunel.. hope c more soon.. :)

c ya !

09-13-2005, 03:15 AM
its a good job growing in here, keep going !

09-13-2005, 03:29 AM
great Lauro! your models it's very nice!

09-13-2005, 08:36 AM
The tunnel looks good, the truck looks good - and the concept is very promising... this could be spectacular.

09-13-2005, 01:33 PM
good idea for the tunnel ! We understand that people are prisoners of the explosion...perhaps you can make one or two people opening their doors's car looking at the explosion ?

good luck ! :thumbsup:

09-13-2005, 01:36 PM
Ver nice start

keep going

09-13-2005, 02:14 PM
Looking very good at this early stage, love that tunnel!!

09-13-2005, 03:09 PM
Nice start dude:)
It will be impressive am sure!
The truck model is good and so the tunnel.
What about some pillars in the tunnel, vertical(on each sides) and horizontal, with some exploding at the same time the explosion progress? Just an idea;)
Keep going Good work


09-13-2005, 08:10 PM
That`s ok and I like it , but dont U think about any more detailes ?

09-14-2005, 08:06 AM

I got now crits for now, but I can sujest you a literatural illustration for your consept:

Woman calls her husband who is driving a car and tell's him:
"Darling, the radio just said that some crazy idiot is driving a wrong side of the road"
Husbad replyes:
"Honey, you won't believe, there hundreds of these idiots here..."

Sorry for bad english, hope you'll udrestand what I mean.

09-28-2005, 10:37 PM

infinita - Thnx man! grande abraço

Madlight_1988 - Hey man! thnx a lot!

Weel this is my new idea...
A great sea monster that leaves the water and it crosses a bridge causing a lot of damage! hehe
I decided to change of idea because it thought the tunnel was bad, I think it was lacking some creativity
that is just a small skech
I need their opinions

09-30-2005, 03:50 AM
Now this will be spectacular, great idea. :buttrock:

09-30-2005, 06:04 AM
Sheeiiiit - that black car looks badass! Ive never seen one of those big, kick arse american sedans modeled before, and youve pulled it off superbly. I liked your idea a lot to start with, and your latest change in direction looks great too, just be careful you dont make it too cheesy or anything.

Best o' luck!

Love your avatar by the way - so simple and abstract, yet obviously a pirate!

09-30-2005, 08:21 AM
Hi. nice work. and realy cinematic.good luck man :thumbsup:

09-30-2005, 09:21 AM
fantastic car .... guess u must hate car modeling too man!:D
the new idea is promising and like the angle in the concept sketch looks great

09-30-2005, 03:44 PM
Car is rocking dude:buttrock: No crits:) The new concept looks promising to me, waiting to see the next step, All the best dude:thumbsup:

09-30-2005, 04:09 PM
Hi Lauro, nice concept and original. You already have idea of the monster? I'll be waiting to see him. Good luck :thumbsup:

09-30-2005, 07:21 PM
Hello all!

Banzato - Thnx man!:thumbsup:

Andy - Hey, i'm a fan of your works! i glad you like my job!
thnx for all and I hope you continues looking for here:)
and as for the avatar, fortunately you said that is a pirate... all confuse with a robot or something... ehawuehuhawa thnx again!

ali_rahimi_3d - Thank you!

yunisirees - thnx a loto man! i glad you like!
ps: i hate modeling cars... :wip: (only a joke, cars and inorganic are my favorite ones :) )

madshooter - Tank you a lot! thnx by your atention in my work!

denverbz - Hello man! Yes, I already have a idea of the monster in my mind... he will be something as the one that I did in the sketch, a monster with big tentacles...
thnx by attention!

09-30-2005, 07:25 PM (

Just a small coloring and composition test...


09-30-2005, 07:40 PM
Lookin good. Im getting a half life 2 vibe about it. Must be the lighting and the tentacles!
Be careful with the car positioning - you dont want it to look like the motorists are just driving to their doom - you cant miss a monster like that on the horizon!
Are they on a bridge or a motorway? The road kinda looks suspended in space.
Maybe have the cars going in the opposite direction, escaping from it? Maybe have some people abandoning their car and are running away?

09-30-2005, 08:01 PM
Really you are right..
the position of the black car and of the green car it is incorrect... seems that they are going in direction of the own death...:surprised
Maybe I make the black car brake abruptly and the green car turning around...
As the people escaping... it is a good idea!
it can be that I do yes.
And the place, probably be a bridge... but i can change this, i realy dont know yet..
thank you very much for the observations :thumbsup:

Cheers :beer:

10-01-2005, 03:08 AM
I have to make a Ford Taurus... I have never modeled a car; I hope it turns out as good as these. Very nice work. I'm looking forward to what you come up for the rest of the image.

What are you doing for the background?

10-06-2005, 06:02 PM (

Hello all!
I finished the modelling of one more car...
I am posting some wires and one render of Land Rover LR3, the next cars will be much less detailed because they will be far away from the camera
I am already thinking about a new composition for the monster, soon I go put him here.

10-06-2005, 06:05 PM (

... render

10-06-2005, 06:08 PM

Well guys...
as i said before, i will change the scene composition again. The ideia will be the same, but the place, i think will do in a street... after a search for references found a very cool place
tell me what you find :bounce: :thumbsup:


And the new composition

10-07-2005, 05:08 PM
nice going on the composition ...looks good to me!:thumbsup: and the land-rover rockx!

Hi Lauro-MX,

you have some great stuff here, amazing car modeling and rendering:thumbsup: . And you are going to make a sea monster!!!:bounce: If I need some inspiration I now know where to look:) . And I really like your new environment concept!


10-07-2005, 07:47 PM
Hi Lauro. This Place is Porto Alegre/RS?? hehehe. Is very similar. :D

I like your work. Sucess!

10-07-2005, 07:55 PM
Fala lauro, vai em portuga memo! Essa Land Rover está com uma qualidade animalesca, tanto na modelagem, shading e render, tudo muito limpo! Vc está usando Vray? se for::buttrock: haha

Parabéns e abraços

10-07-2005, 08:13 PM
Very nice! I prefer the new image a lot more now. I was kinda sceptical about the bridge (partly because jamesMK's entry involved a bridge and some chaos!) and it seems a bit of a cheap way out of making all the detail in the background.
If you make this look like the reference images, it will kick arse. Were not used to seeing monsters laying waste to average european cities rather than the usual sprawling metropolis like L.A. or NY.

Keep up the good work. Nice job on the land rover, though im not too keen on that bright blue colour.

10-08-2005, 02:15 PM
very good modeling,I like your Land rover and the idea is seem very spectacular keep going.:thumbsup:

10-08-2005, 02:17 PM
Hahaaa!! =P
More brazilian guys
It's very cool so far!
Good luck my friend ;P
Vou acompanhar seu entry =]

10-08-2005, 02:30 PM
Muito legal a land rover...

mas quanto ao Skecth da cena eu gostei mais do primeiro, me parece mais dramático, o unico problema é que lembra um filme que não lembro o nome agora... =D


10-08-2005, 06:46 PM
Hey Lauro, excellent land rover... you are a great car modeler:thumbsup:
nice render

10-08-2005, 07:07 PM
Wow, excellent job on this vehicle!

10-09-2005, 03:57 AM
Hi, Lauro. Congrats man, it´s getting great. I liked a lot your last sketch. I really think the city is better to this kind of scene. My only question is... where the monster is coming from? The ground?
BTW, the cars are great too.
Besty luck, dude!

10-09-2005, 05:42 PM
Nice shader work. But your car looks a litle bit plastic.

10-10-2005, 09:03 PM
Hey LAura! damn nice! i missed ur thread for a while! but am back here,again and im faced to some damn cool models,that car is really good,shaders are nice too! the new composition is great too! everything is good! keepetup!:thumbsup:

01-20-2006, 10:25 AM
Hey Lauro , i´m gonna post it in english for everyone to understand. It´s very nice to see such a great 3d production showing up from brazilian lands. I was wondering where did you took that pictures . You´re not from Sao Paulo, am i right?
You´re a great modeller, wonderful car models, the concept is getting much better and complex as time goes by. Keep it up!
Congratulations on everything, and thanks for being so polite and answering everyone´s posts.
And at last but not the least, Enjoy the summer! leave the computer for a while and go to the beach! ehhehehe

02-14-2006, 12:28 PM
very good work . but i guess the gears need to be more darker .
