Land Rover Defender, Dennis Frick (3D)

Title: Land Rover Defender
Name: Dennis Frick
Country: Germany
Software: CINEMA 4D

Hi there,
here is a rendering / compositing of one of my recent projects, a Land Rover Defender.
A previous lowpoly model was used to design the zebra pattern for one of my customers.
After this project I reconstruct the Defender and made this compositing with the hires version.
Hope you like it.

This came out great Dennis. The lighting and color correction are spot-on. The only thing that gives it away are the edges/sampling on the geometry. On some of the straight pieces you can see the jagged edges. Still, that's just getting picky 4*

uber cool!

hey that's really good work,,top quality,,just one crit from me tho, the second window ,,that is the behind one seems too reflective,can see a lot of foliage on it,or is it the bush behind the car?..

Great render/composit! Yea i agree with the edges being a little aliased, maybe soften them a tiny bit. I wonder if you could use zdepth to control the amount of blur the further back even too, but only on a minute scale. Dont want it to look like you used an edge detect or blurred the edges to much. I only really noticed it around the edge of the car itself.

Great Job!

That environment is soo fake, the car is waay too square and the tires are not round.

***comment inspired by the "worst comments" thread***

To be serious, that integration is almost flawless (there's always something wrong, but I can't see it). I dont think anybody could tell for sure its not a photo without knowing it.

excellent work!

edit: mm I have to admit that the edges of the car could be better, but it doesnt change by any means the overall feel of a splendid work.

An excellent job, finally a car that isn't sitting in the middle of nowhere.

Lol looks like the middle of nowhere to me!

Anyways, lovely render - the shading and lights really make the comosite work! Nice work man.

- My thoughts are my own and should not be confused with anyone else's.

Nice work Dennis
It reminds me of some renderings Peter Buchholz (Bookwood) did featuring a Landrover. You both show similar love to detail.

What gave it away for me is the shadow underneath the car, it's a bit inconsistent. Other than that it's a photo as far as I'm concerned.
Check out my pretties!

Great render, my only crit would be the shadowed areas, particularly those above and to the right of the land rover, they really leap forward and need to be knocked back some. Infact the rocky area in the bg 'above' the LR doesnt work at all for me, I'd just stick with scrub there if I were you.
