First off, I love the render. By FAR the best CG car I've ever seen. And, I should point out that I was sure you just edited the render onto a photograph before I sw that wireframe. Seriously, great work. One thing I noticed - and I point this out for future reference - the weather looks somewhat overcast, and dull, yet the shine on the leather seats is too intense for the mood set by the environment. I dunno... just something I picked up after 5 minutes of staring and DROOLING. Insanely good job, man.

it's amazing artwork man!

I'm not sure about one thing though. The seats are bouncing off light from a side, while the rest of the car is bouncing light coming from above. Is this lighting originally inspired by a reference photo? Also, the light on those seats is quite perfectly uniform in color and intensity, I mean, it looks kinda flat.
I just mention that, because it immediately called my attention, and maybe I'm not seeing things correctly, what do you think?

pretty good work


is it possible that the wheels edges (or so ) are a bit too sharp?

Yes, I also think that the lightning is a bit strange at some places. If you just look at the front you get the Impression the whole thing was photographed in a 60ies style studio light (Like in those Disney real-world movies). It's not that kind of light you would expect outside. I think it is too uniform.

But man, it looks soooooooo amazing

I was thinking "that looks like quite good compositing", heh. Madness.

Good job! I love it, although of course being a girl i would prefer it in shock pink. *grin*

Hi guys,
Thanks for your comments. Yes, you are definitely right about the "incorrect" lighting in the image!

The scene was lit with one of those free HDRI probes (+ one key light) that are lying around the net. Inititally the image on the probe was a vast landscape with the occasional tree in the distance.

As work progressed I ended up adding more and more trees into the background, as I felt it needed it, and by that time my scene had become _quite_ different to the one on the probe. And those of you with a sharp eye noticed the flaws immediately. You can even see that the reflection on the chrome surface is reflecting a bare landscape and not a forrest...

Anyway, I looked into some other probes that contained forrests, but never managed to get the render looking as nice as with the one I already had. So I decided to keep it as it was hoping that noone would notice.

Consider it "Photosurrealism".

Holy GOD! You modelled the background too!? Awesome! I looked at this earlier and thought, wow, thats great, the car looks almost perfect and its a beautiful comp job. But the background isn't a comp! That is utterly fantastically done. The car itself could use a little more blemishing perhaps and it would be perfect, what's keeping it from being perfect is its perfection, actually! =) Amazing work.
