Note: The reflections may look more prominent if you have a lower resolution monitor.
I’ll post the sketch later when I have time. But for now I’d appreciate it if you guys could help me make the render better before this guy makes the rounds at the many other forums I frequent. Thanks!
It’s not abut tearing anyone a new one, it’s about getting better. To do that you need to hear what is goo, and what needs work. I love when people post their work. Just having the guts to post work in a public forum is huge and I commend that!
It’s for sure a very nice rendering job. The colors and reflections are very good.
I question the design and surfaces a bit though.
1 > Grille, looks fussy and out of place
2 > Surfaces on the lower part of the DRG (down road graphic) what is really going on down there… It looks like the sheet metal is floating?
3 > horizon line on the body side contradicts the odd kick up sculpt. (looks much better in the rear view sketch)
4 > Headlights… getting a little bored of seeing everyone render headlights this way…
5 > Design looks very evolutionary… this looks like it could have been an alternate design to the current CTS instead of the NEXT CTS… show us the future!
Overall I like the rear view sketch a lot more, it is a more descriptive perspective, and I think it pushes the current design more. Maybe explore in this view further…
I comprehend what you’re saying. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve noticed over on PDF that some members over there can be rough on anyone. I agree it takes guts to post your work. I would love to see Core77 have just as much action if not more over here, its time for me to ante up. I’ll get busy.
