Cars2011 - Part 10 final

Boring small crisis-mobile. You must really hate cars to buy something like this. But hey, it is still better than public transportation. Volkswagen UP! model is one of few reincarnations of this product across VAG world. There will be also Skoda, Seat and others with changed names.

Cars2011 - Part 9 final

What a car ! Fisker Karma in black. Too bad it is some kind of a hybrid. Hey, add V8 and you have Panamera, CLS, Quadroporte killer. Anyway it was fun to model this thing. Even without blueprints.

Next : Volkswagen UP!

Cars2011 - Part 8 final

It was damn hard model. Many details, many unexpected turns. After four days I`m tired but final effect is good enough. I do not see what this car is set to be... some strange combination of small suv and hatchback ... btw, must have terrible rear mirror visability becouse rear windshield is very small. While modeling it I few times checked that windshield to be sure, that`s how it small is. Over all it is good looking car but still, why don`t buy regular suv or regular hatch ? Anyway, it is time for renderings :

Next model : Fisker Karma. Awesome exotic ! Too bad I have only few usable photos as a modeling reference. Maybe someone have blueprint in decent resolution ?

Cars2011 - Part 6 day1

Today I started Peugeot 508 model. I also decided to show You only finished models since it is just boring to put every day the same stages of model. First day it is almost ready body, then model with few missing parts and .... BORING ! So now every 3-4 days there will be few renderings of new model.
It will be ready on monday.

After few hours of rendering I came up with short animation of my last model. Just few camera moves and lame montage plus some music from one of my old synthesizers ... remember to swith to HD

Cars2011 - Part 5 day 3

Due to some meetings today I will not be able to finish CLS model in 3 days. I still have to do grill, headlights and cabin. Here You have few renderings :

Cars2011 - Part 5 day 2

CLS body is almost ready. There will be added chrome decorations and somthing what I call "under". It is a black element that cover space between wheels and wheel arches and places like grill, air intakes ... kind of simple fullfilment of every flat element to make sure that in rendering there will be no background visable thru grill or other "hole" in the car body. As You can imagine, there is no time and no sense to model radiator or suspension elements. They will be probably lost in rendering in too dark areas but I can`t leave it empty becouse it can make some strange shadows or some bright spots breaking thru in the rendering of such model. Since those models need to be easy to convert and ready to use in many different 3d apps I can`t use many features that I like. For the same reason many elements must be quite specific. For example while making glass elements I just can`t leave them as a flat polygons/sub-d`s becouse there seems to be some kind of error in some renderers when glass have no depth. It is fine in Lightwave so object can be much lighter poligon wise. Ok, it is time for todays results after 4 hours of work. More later.
ps. Please DO NOT ask me for models. I just can`t send You them becouse I DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS to do so. They are made for commercial company and YOU CAN BUY THEM at :
This project (cars2011) of cours is not ready yet but there are many that are ready. Go check them.
As You see I need 3-4 days to model one car so it will be 46-52 days to finish all 20 models (4 are ready ) plus week or more for DoschDesign to made them ready for clients.
Update :
Monotonic background helps me find errors and bad curves like this in the picture :

One of the most exciting cars on the market ... Mercedes Benz CLS is my five model in this project. Blueprints and materials for this car are excelent so work should be fun and easy.

Cars2011 - Part 3 day 1

Volkswagen Passat is one of the most boring cars. It is everywhere in Poland, in every village. I don`t say it is bad car but I don`t understand this cult like owners and endless flame wars on moto-forums.
Anyway, here is day one progress on 2012 Passat sedan :
