THREE D


Hello, I created this image as a means to show traditional car photographers the power of 3D computer graphics. It was meant to prove that it would be very hard to produce with photography and/or photoshop.

I used Maya's deformers in order to twist the shape. Unfortunately the polygon mesh broke up quite a bit during this process and so I used photoshop in order to clean up some of the car body where it twists.

I enjoyed creating it and found it quite therapeutic to create a 'twisted' form of reality.

Thumbs up brilliant...........!!!

I have been quite facinated by the rendered image...
How do you achieve such a realistic look of render?!
I meant, you use HDRI? or what kind of techniques?
It will be a happiest day if you tell the world how you do such a good job

Hi Bryan, yes it does use HDRI for lighting and reflections. I used a physically accurate unbiased renderer called ART, which has physically accurate materials such as car paint and glass. There is not much to it to be honest. The mistake I made was not to white balance the HDRI and so the car looks very beige when in fact it was supposed to be silver!
oh well.

Thanks for the comments,
lee
