semi futuristic car design



Hey everyone. I finished up the car I;ve been working on, still texturing up the inside but not an issue for these outside shots. Let me know what you all think. I know the background is simple, but I want the focus to be on the car. If I could get XSI's depth fading to work right I'd blur the background out a bit. Oh well let me know what you think of the car. The 3d comic Im working on is still in the works for those of you keeping track, and ill be updating soon. Proubly within the next month ill have a major update for you all. Anyways critique away and keep creating......

I like the model, it seems too exaggerated in features but you never know what the future will hold.

Nice... I like everything apart from the end fin.
I think it should be more streamlined like the car body...

By the way Spirit2029, how long did you spend on the model?
How long on the design of the model?

Man... I want one!

I thing you could use a better variation of color on the concrete, but ... Oh heck, who cares about the concrete anyway. The car is really nice.

I would really like to know the structure of the car, can we see a wireframe or two?

Well I think that wasn't a bad suggestion at all. Would be nice to see it on an orage underground (u know, that color some gravel-tennescourts have).

Maybe add a bit depth of field to...


Looks like it could be the next lotus elise (maybe should send the model to lotus...)

Great design, I like it alot..

But I agree with chepe297 about the fin.
"Nice... I like everything apart from the end fin.

Anyway, good work

looks like a great car...very nice original design!!

its just personal choice but I would like the top of the wheel arches to be rounded and cover the top of the tyre so you cant see it and maybe the front arch could be made smaller.


Looks great as it is...just my taste.

update








So I guess I should have put this in the WIP forum seem as I decided to do a bunch more work on it. I decided to make two versions of the car, one race version and one street legal. The silver one is meant to be the race version, im thinking of doing it up with decals and a paint job later on. Anyways critique away on the update. I also attached the wire, and the car took a little over a week to build and texture. Im not sure what Im going to do with it in the future here, prolly just some nice stills. but ill see....

Very cool design

The only thing that I notice is that the front wheel wells look bigger than the back ones, Making the front wheels look under sized This may be due to the front wheels being turned at an angled.

I don't like ultra low profile tires on aggresive looking cars but that is more of a personal preference.
I would like to see a different wheel rim design and and a chunkier tire size on the car just to see what it looks like.

Anyway I think it's very cool, way better than that car from the SpyHunter Game!!
