Aston Martin db5

The idea was to make something that is photo real. I hope you can give pointers and crits on the result so far, esp with composition:

Could you point out the problem areas?

Hi PsYcHZ

I think some deeper shadows underneath the car would help because I feel that overall there are a lot of mid and high tones...but not many dark areas to help bring the car into the environment. The chrome on the front is a bit on the blown-out side and could use some darker reflections to help define it's shape...i would say the same for the windows (specially on the passenger side) and headlights. Also i think the side of the car facing us should be a bit darker to help those darker tones i had mentioned. Not sure how to accomplish this technically, but just wanted to give my opinion. Really love the model and good choice on the car

Body shape is wrong, too long, wrong angle to windshield, missing wing mirrors. etc, etc...

How much reference had to used first of all, I agree with Numptus1 being to long but also looks too wide, the transition shape from the door to the back doesn't look as smooth, you have the door frame flat but it actually has a slight curvature comes down at an angle.

Something small I would add, the car doesn't appear to have any weight, it should be compressing the tires some. Also, where are all the Q Branch modifications? (just kidding)

Thanks for the comments

Here is an update. I've played with the render in photoshop to get these results.

For those who mentioned inaccuracies in the model, I followed the reference material I dug up as closely of possible. I got my hands on a top, side front back view image, but It was drawn up by an artist, so my human touch (aka inaccuracies) have followed that of the artists as well.

You sure about that? Most cars I see, including period 1960's cars dont seem to have any noticeable sag in them... '


That being said, I think a blown V8 is in order

Looking good! I still think the shadows could be a little darker...i did a quick photoshop adjustment to push the shadows and chrome a bit to hopefully try to illustrate what i said in my previous comment Still loving how this is turning out, keep it up man

Try changing the background image, i bet it would help with the presentation, in my opnion your main problems are lighting and composition.

The background isnt an image. Its the scene I put the car in. This is the reference I got for the whole idea:
