Working on a car that I made using the boxmodeling technique. I used Lewis spline modeling technique in the past too, but find the boxmodeling method a bit faster to model a car.
It is a model I made up myself after some research I did on cars of the period ( years 1955-1958).
I modeled some other cars too, and I was planning to made a bigger shot with all of them together, but that is for later.
The HDRI image was put inside a dome for more control over the final look of the render, still not pleased with it, and the HDRI map is too grainy for my taste, but it give a vintage picture feel to it.
The lighting was done with 5 arealights in a box, with different colors and intensities to match the HDRImap. For once my reflections look decent :) Not perfect yet. I still need to add the gradients, cause I never seem to get those right, any help?
The reflections on the tire-rubber looks really odd, I think I need to tweak the rubber some more.
Any other comments on the car?
