Vehicle: Porsche 356B



Hi. This is my 3 Porsche 356Bs. Done with Lightwave and Photoshop.

I modelled it mostly with nurbs, and some parts polygonally (such as the tires and the windscreen wiper).
I didn't use HDRI. I've taken some shots from the street, then I edited and mapped them on primitives.
I've rendered separately the reflections (fresnel and normal), the diffuse, and the shades for the environment, so it was fun to composite it, that's why I have so many versions.

Couldn't decide about the color.

Here's a white,





a black,





a red one





and finally the pure model.





Thank you for your attention, C&C are welcome.

I was Andrew from Budapest, Hungary

Great work, I like the model a lot. You did a great job recreating it. I like the way you can see the weight of the car on the tyres.

would prefer the red one by the way.

I also like the way you edited it in the picture. One thing though. You could a very little Depth of Field effect to make it blend in more with the picture.

Good stuff!!

Where is the inside by the way? I dont see any chairs!

Excellent work, superb modelling I like the top one the best (the white one), that colour is always great on classic cars.

Don't you mean subdivision patches? LightWave doesn't have NURBS.

God job with the compositing, it looks great. Only gripe is that their seems to be no interior modelled (seats, etc).

I've plugged this one on the front page, really cool work

From what little I let load of those pics, the renders are amazing. Nice model. But man, I got tired of waiting for these things to load and I'm on a highspeed DSL connection.

wow, very photorealistic, I could easily mistake this as a photograph. Great job, I didn't notice the lack of an interior at first, I was marveling over the exterior

I used "subdivided polygons / metaform" to be exact.

The car doesn't really have a full interieur (only driving wheel+rear view mirror+upper body of the seats). But the parts that you could see from the view of the camera are there.

I've created this model at least a year ago, and I haven't finish it. Then one day walking around the city, while taking photos of some buildings for school (i'm learning to be an architect), I found this nice little wall in this nice little street, and I thought it would be a great place for my porsche. So I took the photos, created the environmet, and finished the model (only the parts that are visible from the view of the camera). Of course the car has a back and a basic interieur, but I wouldn't be proud of it.

The whole picture from finishing the model to compositing was done for this very scene.

This looks very nice. Blending with bg is almost perfect... except the car is tad too crisp. Not that it's very important, everything looks nice.

yeh they are slow to load...but worth it...only crits without looking at the reference is they seem almost too reflective and a bit too sharp compared to the bg photo, perhaps a little noise and a tiny amount of blur would cure that, but they look good all the same, especially the reflections which work well, they look as good as hdri. Perhaps the tyres seem a little too grey as well.

red one is my fave

ever heard of jpeg compression? that image took about as long to load as it probablt took to render! (on DSL too!)

aside from that, its a little too sharp to look real. very nice all the same, I know a lot of work goes into this sort of thing

Red, then white then black though they are all extremely nice renders.
They look very realistic as they are but if you wanted to go that little bit further, here's what I would 'try' and do.

The tyre rubber colour seems a bit too 'grey' especially when you compare it to the albeit modern day tyres on the van behind.

Ferdinand himself would be proud of the build quality of that car. Maybe you could subtly shift some of the parts around to add imperfections in the fit. The hood/bonnet is perfectly fitting when in real life getting a large panel to fit into a void that size, perfectly is very, very hard.

Add some wear or grime into the recesses of the chrome wheels. Even if they were perfectly polished everyday a build up of dirty polish would occur in the extreme recesses.

Add some stickers in the corner of the windscreen. In the UK we have a tax disk, maybe you have something equivilent?

And finally, consider adding a slightly battered number plate to the front of the car. I suppose this is a taste issue as it's not a legal requirement in all countries for vehicles to have a front numberplate.

All in all though - excellent work
