Cars2011 - Part 19 final

I can see the finish line from here ! Only one model to go. Kia Rio is ready, modeled and rendered.
As always in full sub-d with only few triangles in non strategic places :-) As always under 60.000 polys. ( before subdivision ) . Rendering time for picture like this is under 4 minuts on my i5 2500k@4.5ghz.

NEXT : Lexus GS
If I have some free time after this project I will render some animation with this models. Too bad I do not have any private renderfarm :-(

Model no 19 - KIA

Second day of my work on KIA Rio concluded with this rendering :
It is time to slowly looking for another project. Only one model left so maybe I will have some time for private work. I must spend few days on learning new tricks. There are so much to learn and so little time for do it :-)

Cars2011 - Part 18 final

Honda Pilot is unknown here in Europe, only few are on the market. In Poland where I live I only saw it one time ! My 3d model is based on latest facelifting and fresh photos from autoblog.
Only two models left in this project. Next : New Kia RIO. Due to very bad reference materials I have for Lexus GS i will do it last hoping that smoe good photos or blueprint will emerge :-)

Cars2011 - Part 17 final

Opel Corsa model is ready. I did not go for OPC version after all. It`s more universal that way.  You always can add this few details yourself. In arch-viz works it is better to have cars that tell for who final product is targetet and nobody sell houses or flats to hooded users of crazy hot-hatches :-)

NEXT : Honda Pilot

Cars2011 - Part 16 final

Only four to go and it is pay day ;-) This Hyundai seams to be nice but I`m afraid that those lines can quick loose it`s appeal. Model is ready and was made quite fast. Even recording whole process and making movies about it did not have negative effect on modeling speed.  The only issue I have with Lightwave`s Modeler is that it crash alot. It is only my problem for some reason becouse on forums there is no word about it. But it is not a big problem for me since Lightwave starts on my rig in less than one second and to save model You just press "s".
I need to reinstall whole thing after finishing this project. Probably it is all caused by my graphics card ( gts250 ) but simple change of drivers have no effect. But we have here little chat and over there are new renderings ready:

Don`t judge my renderings, they are only for simple showing of a model, not to be photorealistic or anything.
NEXT : Opel Corsa OPC

Second part of time lapse modeling

So far time consumed by this model is 1.55 from part one and 2.45 in this session. So four hours and forty minutes ... not bad :-) In this mad tempo I will finish it in 8-9 hours :-) Of course there will be some cheating by using already modeled elements like tires, inside of a car, licenece plates and logo but it is still good tempo. I can`t maintain this speed across whole project coz it is too hard without feeling exhausted. It is simple experiment to know my skills if needed. Here You have new time lapsed video :

How it`s made

Inspired by one of the Newtek`s forum user I decided to try a time-lapse animation of modeling process.
Enjoy :

Cars2011 - Part 15 final

Hi. After four days of hard work I present to You a new model from Land Rover. Range Rover Evoque. Handsome car with styling that was placed first in line. Funcionality is probably quite bad same thing is rear visability thru this small back windows. Anyway, I like it :-) It cost me a lot of energy. It was most time consuming model in this project. Many small details, lame reference materials ... but here it is :

NEXT : Hyundai i40
ps. If You care about Fiat Uno model I have bad news. I decided to model B-class instead.
It seams that Fiat Uno is not in production right now so it will useless to model it in project with current sales target. Sorry.

Cars2011 - Part 13 final

Another popular yet boring small car. Toyota Yaris from model year 2012. Even if something looks off on this model I`m sure it is proper model. In case of Toyota styling ( or lack of it ) it is quite hard to render them to match promotional photos. This photos are highly retouched in photoshop to make those cars less ugly ;-)
But who buy Toyota for something more than weather protection while moving ? It has roof, it has place to sit ... what more You can ask ?

All Saints so no new car yet.

I don`t know how about You but I do not have any pagan halloween but good old All Saints. This fact can be main reason that my "car every 3 days" rule is broken. See ya friday when Fiat Uno will be ready.
