HI Miseka,

Nice modeling start and good concept. Makes me think of the early racing cars... matter of fact, I was just watching the beginning of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang this morning with my daughter before bringing her to daycare. Granted it has a lot to do with the past, but makes me wonder what environments people will find to challenge themselves in the future.

I look forward to seeing the final model.



04 April 2008, 04:31 PM
Well here is my car, only a few detail and cockpit then i model the startgrid...


04 April 2008, 04:33 PM
There are little changes of original concept, because i dont make good concept and in the process of modeling i saw that this form i like more.

Bye !

04 April 2008, 06:54 PM
Very nice Miguel! I'm having difficulties modeling mine but it's developing...
Any ideas about color and materials?

04 April 2008, 06:51 AM
Well, my idea is make a grid with various cars with distints color, i am not if plain colors or any silk-screen printing. Too, i like put it clinches in any part of de body.

Ah, i want put it seems fluorescents ...

I think that is best flat color for that years ago...i do a probe and upload here...



04 April 2008, 03:29 PM

Well, here is my little contribution, ...


Nice model and final image Miguel. You did a lot in the short time we had.

Thank you for all your help, I look forward to seeing your future work.


05 May 2008, 07:07 AM
Very nice design Miguel, it looks gerat. :)

06 June 2008, 03:25 AM
Wow, I guess I messed the final on my last comment. Great Image. I like the story and the scenery. I think the Light bars on the street is very important. They can only be street lights or energy source to help propel the vehicle. In other words, they could be part of the design themselves. Excellent texture detail on the roads and even more so details on the body. The textures look controlled and well placed. The form of the body is a bit blocky to me. I would have like to see the organic forms of the jets in the back moved into the front rectangle design more. Love the material in the interior and the overall tone of the render. Great Job. Good stuff.

06 June 2008, 07:21 AM
No problem, i agree with you, the final model is not good, its very block but i dont have very time for reshape all, and my idea original was put in the car light bars but i dont have very practic in mount the shapes and shaders... i have more practice in modeling... ;)

Thks for comment and critics, are very importants...



06 June 2008, 11:52 AM
You did far better than did in this contest )

Please read through my comment again. I didn't say it wasn't good. I said it's very good in many ways and explain how by stating what I got from it. I am only making critiques from my frame of view bases on the criteria of the contest. Your work is great. Very creative.

I'm also using my critiquing skills which is a very important in helping me be a better artist.
Thanks for letting my be a part of your creative process by using my critiquing techniques.

06 June 2008, 01:35 PM
Alonzo i say to you that are welcomes all critiques, true.

Is a way to be better in my stuff... i am not angered , jajaja.

bye friend...
