Hey Guys,
This model is supplied from a little dark short im working on. Here are some images from the short. I will also Post it when im done. I originally built this for these lighting challenges because I thought it is a very fun platform for lighting. You can approach this in all kinds of ways.

Id love to see all kinds of moods, Morning and evening warm lighting, Rain and lightning, Tunnel dark looks, Get crazy with the ideas and have fun. No right and wrong here.

Here are 4 images to get the creativity flowing

thanks for the new challenge! I started to work on the models and layouts, the OBJ file have many problems(inverted normals, missed UVW maps and ...) .
I'll share my WIP as soon as possible

@armanpier shoot your right I just noticed the obj export might have been a little off. I didn't UV Texture for the export because I figure everyone uses there own methods for UV unwrapping. Ill fix up those normal issues and give the update to Giorgio. Thanks!

Hello the deadline will be SOON just joking. I think two months should be enough to unleash our creativity
I've imported the model in max and it worked quite good. What are exactly the issue ?

Giorgio It was just some flipped normals. I resent my file and I tested the normals. they seem to be all good now.

Thanks!

Hi at all!

I am very interested in these challenges!

Here my work in progress of the scene.

There are not a lot of textures used right now. I am using mostly MILA shader. A good way to test them

@dwu67 Keep going the texturing is looking good. Id copy the model and display it past the window so you can see into the next car.
