Alfa Romeo 159 And Brera, Edenlab (3D)



Title: Alfa Romeo 159 And Brera
Name: Edenlab
Country: Italy
Software: Maya, mental ray

These are a few frames out of the video we created for the world premiere presentation of the new Alfa Romeo 159 and Brera Coupe models during the 2005 Geneve motor show. Car styiling and modeling by Italdesign Giugiaro. The purpose of this video was to show the cars in the most neutral environment, where their body lines would be put most in evidence. We also created a video for the presentation of the concept SUV Mitsubishi Nessie: both will shortly be available on our website www.edenlab.com .
The total time to complete both projects is has been around 3 weeks.
Ciao
Stefano

Brera looks nice one! Is that just a concept or will it be reality?

I'm going to google now...

Regards

Very good modelling but I think the softness of the shadows and reflections on the cars give them a plastic rather than metallic look. Of course they could be fiberglass cars. It's most noticeable on the grey car and particularly when you see the glass headlamps.

The wheels look a bit odd to me too - perhaps too light or shiny. They have highlights where I wouldn't expect them.

One other thing about the grey car is that the rear wheel arches seem to continue into the back doors. I've never seen that on a car before. Lastly, the bottom image shows the mirror reflecting what appears to be a blue sky but the model looks like it's in a studio.

Most of what I've said is minor though. Overall, it's a nice piece of work.

Great work, I think the only part that doesn't look realistic is the tires and the overall softness of the image. Great modeling, couldn't ask for better!

Amazing hard-surface modeling, and deluxe texture & lights!

Great images! And great cars from Alfa Romeo!
I have an Alfa Romeo 145 and it's a very nice car, funny to drive!

Bye
Compliments!

Very Nice! Can you tell us how you achieved that nice silver look? What mental ray shader did you use? (or is it Maya's anisotropic?) Thanks.
 
Old 03 March 2005   #13
Hi
first of all, thank you for your compliments. Yes, some things like the tires might definitely use some refinement, but we were in such a hurry... The shaders are all built upon mentalray-specific nodes plus some custom shaders we created: this gives us the ability to get consistent results under different lighting conditions and to keep low the rendering times.
Both cars are actually production cars: they have been presented one week ago in geneve and will be soon on the market.
Here we have a couple more frames:

Ciao

Lovely work and I like the soft look it's got a nice ad feel to it. Did you moel the cars? The only reason I ask is because I know some car companies will supply a detailed mesh for clients.

I agree with the blue reflection though that does stand out a bit, but this is top work.

I believe he already said in his first post that the models were provided.

They're too perfect to be modeled from blueprints. :lol:
