great model...
but you need to put a reflection in the window of the building;).....looks awesome though!!!

..Check the "nose". It's more round on the real one.

Hmmm about the roof, I would say the glas they use for the roof should be darker. Otherwise it would be strange if the sun is up :P

U know!?

Why did U changed the COLOR? I only seen it in RED...Lets say Alfa Red ;)

Oh and the taillights should be a litle bit red'der. Just a litle.

Regards, Daniel.

Great! I have the Car Design Yearbook here beside me, and your model looks just like the concept car!

Very nice!

NICE MODEL :thumbsup:

reflection still not right.... too clean and glass need some thickness, maybe u could also put the reflection of the car on the glass door of the building, that should make the car looks more nature in the enviroment

La versione rossa è molto migliore, il problema della tua immagine secondo me, a parte qualche dettaglio in modellazione, sono vetri e illuminazione, troppo piatta, quelle riflessioni fanno sembrare la macchina di plastica, non metallizzata. A parte questo lavoro ottimo, complimenti :bounce:

excellent model, but you need to tweak the reflections a bit, as well as making the glas a bit thicker. give the surface of the car some grime, oh and the metal looks a bit plastic to me....:shrug:


12 December 2002, 03:08 PM
oh, and what software did you use? i appologise if im not paying attention and you already answered this one...:rolleyes:

Very nice model and renders. The very first one is still the best I think. Don't like the red - too saturated and makes it look... not right.
Widen/darken the door front panel gap a tiny bit, so it still appear in the (first) render.
The things that stand out most are the tires and lack of reflection on the background. Also the shadow is a bit too sharp.
Overall very impressive work! Cool car too :)

Sick model dude! I love that car, but the wheels look a bit big, Personaly I would give it smaller tires that are more low profile.

Tis a bit grainy as well, would like to see one with higher sample rate on the lighting.

you have one really nice model started, I like the scene Idea, gives the sense of realism, but some things are a little off, Mainly the reflections are way to strong, and maybe add some shadows or something dark in the upper sky area to add some more contrast in the surfaces,, just tossing out some Ideas I play with.

12 December 2002, 04:32 PM
thx u to all guys for the comments and suggestions! i agree with yours opinions.

ill try to fix reflections (car paint and environment) and the shadows (too dark).

The grain its not an render effect...i added it later in Photoshop.


PS: ThirdEYE_01: meno male che non capiscono l'italiano qui la maggior aprte; il tuo molto migliore devo dire mi ha scioccato un pò :p :D

very nice overall. The red paint could use some tweaks to make it look less CG, but it does make it stand out a lot better in the environment that it is in.

I am glad to see a car in an environment as opposed to a boring white backdrop.

12 December 2002, 07:45 PM
whooO! :bounce: all these beutifull cars :) :thumbsup:

12 December 2002, 04:08 AM
very nice good job

12 December 2002, 02:06 PM
Bravo, la tua auto è veramente bella. Cerca però di diminuire la saturazione della carrozzeria per amalgamarla maglio con l'ambiente. I vetri sembrano molto sottili e troppo bianchi, devi darli uno shader più cupo e riflettente.

Great job. Your model is cool. Try to decrease the level of saturation of the red shader to blend more with the environment.
Change the shader for the glasses, because they look thiny and too bright.

thx again for the comments and suggestions guys!

i make some changes about reflection and shadows...and lower the saturation in red version. Hope looks better now. :hmm:

Very well done!!!

Hey, nice, this is one of my favourite car designs!
Did you have some blueprints for modeling?
If yes, please tell me where I can find them.
