WOW

That's a really nice looking car. The only thing i have to crit, and this is just being picky, is that the tyres should be a bit muddy if they have been down that dirty road, by the way how did you do the road or is it just a pic

Excellent work

Ah yes, that's a good point.
I tried to make the tires dirty, but somehow the shadow made them dark again.

Here's a wireframe shot:

(cut and paste URL into new window as host doesn't allow direct links)


The road is just a bunch of textures that I merged together in Photoshop.

Ahh, come on, admit it, it's a photo.
That's is sooo damn real looking, aside from the textures on the tires, there's no way to tell it's 3d.

Thanks greekdish!
Unfortunately I don't speak a word Greek, although my name is very Greek for being Swedish.

Holy Sheeit! That's the most photoreal car scene I've seen (scene I've seen?) Amazing work. Without the wireframe, I'd have thought you were jerking our chains.

you seriously rock dude!

Omg, Wow! It made me do a low, muffled "wowwww" in awe, when I saw it on the front page PhotoReal!!! wowwe! wowwe! wowwe!

The mossy green rock towards the bottom-right seems to have edges too sharp against the road, though... but I only noticed that cuz everything else looked absolutely photoreal++!!

That's the most realistic 3d car ever!!!!
