Nice job !
It's a Renault 4 "Savane" model, isn't it ?
I prefer the blue one ;)
Tell us about your modeling and lighting, how did you do ?
What about posting a wireframe ?

thanks for your reply guys !

unknown limit : I modeled the car with 3dsmax 4 and 5.0 and rendered with the Incredible Vray rendering engine

Da-Jackel : thanks for your comment .there is no texture on the car only hdri reflection...for the modeling I use the polymeshtools for 3dsmax4.2 (but they are integrated on max 5.0

I did an edge chamfer and extrude it (sorry for my english)

I put a close up wireframe view

Soljarag :I modeled the light like the real life with transparent refraction and a bump maps.

Krep Suzeth :hi krep how are you it s a pleasure to see you again!!!!

The tail lights kill it IMO.

Nice model tho!

Nice BeeeeMmmmmmmmmWwwwwww :)

The Model looks cool and finished. The only thing U have to fine tunne are the surfaces.

For example the taillights, U show a nice detail shot so I can see what's missing. It's first a litle gab between the body and the light. Some Taillights have a black outside border, I'm not sure with the X5.

And also try to find pics where U can read the litle nummbers and brands which are on the light. Or just make oyur own. So that there is just something. Right now it's to empty.
The same with the headlights. Click here ( to see a headlight test I made some month ago.

What's next, the tires. Hmmm, very dark!!! Fix that, use a dark grey, and also add glossines. Not much just a litle.

If you are using 3DMax 5. Why aren't you use the build in radiosity engine???

okay, finished and tired. ;)

Very nice model.

Only critique I can give would be to add more contrast between the tires and the body of the BMW. Other than that it looks great.

great model, the rims are very good too :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 02:29 PM
wow nice model...

why are all the non textured car models always in this blue?? is that some kind of rendering preset or something? :).... 3Dluvrs grid does it like that too ;)....
