wow!!
one of the best cars i've seen! what modeling method did you use ? any good tutorial explaining this method ? thanx !!
 
Old 02 February 2003   #33
That is the maddest quality.

I too was thinking it was a cool car on a composited background. Damn. Very nice.

I ponder one thing: Why is everything triangulated? The wireframe doesn't have a single quad, and I.. I don't know why one would want to end up with tri's?

fantastic.

i'd love to see a muddy version of it

In reply to hog:
No, everything you see in the image was modelled...
The ground was a highly subdived mesh that I displaced with a big texture map that I made in Photoshop. The source footage for the texture was taken from Jeremy Engleman's free texture library. The trees are also pure geometry.

In reply to sebek27:
Thanks! The car was modelled with the good old subdivision method. I didn't use any spline patching teqhniques because I find them too slow. I basically just modelled everything poly-by-poly, and used KO_PlainBeltOptimiser and EdgeTools to speed up the work.

In reply to gaggle:
Well, that is just the way LightWave subdivides the object. The initial object is quite low poly, but then I subdivided everything before it was rendered.

Absolutely amazingly awesome!!

Even the rock in the foreground is fantastic! Was that done with procedurals? It's even got the moss on it...

Hi, no everything is just texture maps...

I HIGHLY recommend people to check out the public texture library of Jeremy Engleman. All the textures in my scene were taken from his library. This guy rocks!

sorry i'm a LW newbie... you add points then hit "p" to make polygon ? thanx

sebek27:
Yepp, simple as that. Although I usually use Extender to drag out two existing points. That way your points will be more easily aligned with the existing geometry.
