  • Thanks guys for your kind comments, it has just taken me a lot of practice, practice, practice.... it seems there is always something to learn.

  • i really love old cars......do you have any tutorial of 3d modeling of them?

    12 years ago

  • Unfortunately i don't have any tutorials. I always just start with a polygon box, moving the vertices to the rough shape of the car, then keep cutting more detail and moving the vertices. These cars were tricky as i had no blueprints, i only had photos which takes a lot longer to then get the shape accurate

  • Thats possibly the most realistic 3D computer generated model ive ever seen. Stunning.

  • Thanks for your comments everyone. Only the front Engine is CG. Not too much time was spent doing post processing. Some people prefer to render everything in layers, Diffuse, Refelctions etc then composite them later, i like to get it right in one go in the render. Post processing involved tweaking in photoshop so that the train looked part of the photograph, ie making sure the edges of the train were not too sharp etc against the backround. Lighting is key, making sure it matches the photo.

  • The lighting in the photo that i used for the front view was also different from the other one, the sun has disappeared behind clouds and therefore the shadows are very soft and diffuse, so i had to change the file lighting to match.

  • Super rendering!

  • Wow, this had me fooled at first sight. Amazing work.

    11 years ago

  • Your work is some of the best I've ever seen. Cool subject matter too.

  • Mike, they are super military tyres, they are made out of concrete! Great job David, the work with shadows and lights is too good to be real!

    11 years ago

  • Mike, thanks for your comments, you're spot on, the tyres should be squashed somewhat, i did the truck a couple of years ago, sometimes you concentrate on all the other details and forget one or two... i always squash my tyres now :-)

    11 years ago

  • Thanks everyone for your comments. The composition is helped by having the bush in front of the truck, it makes it more believable i think.

  • wowwwww amazing

  • Thats mental doing this without blueprints! Very skilled. Beautiful modelling.

    11 years ago

  • err no.. just made up :-), my next character was to be more realistic, ie not a perfect looking model type, it's funny how when you make a character you gravitate towards something that is perferct looking, an old granny or something should be next
