    Pretty much ended up as I was imaging when I had the idea; wish I'd managed better blood though.

    The rendering and presentation let down this excellent, excellent modeling job. I hope when you say finished you mean, for now

    Must have somewhere, but most show the cars without.

    Please explain.

    Oh, and deltray, yes that is Christine's latest victim. For those not familiar with the book or the film, Christine is the car from a Stephen King novel; in the book she was possessed and in the film she came straight from hell.

    Thank you for all comments.

    First image on the left is okay. Model is great, but the car is off to the right of the screen, placed on top of a hard-edged cylinder. If this is for a portfolio, you want to showcase it for a client. The image on the right at the store or warehouse or whatever it is, is too dark, well, the background is too dark, but the car is lit up. Makes no sense. Showcase your model in an appealing way, like this: http://www.templates.com/blog/wp-con...blacksmall.jpg

    OR

    Showcase your model in a composition, like this: http://www.templates.com/blog/wp-con...blacksmall.jpg

    The bottom two pictures are fine to show the details. Hope all of that makes sense.

    Yes, it does, thank you.

    It's funny I've been playing with the main composition as it wasn't feeling right; I left it for a day before posting, but a good night's sleep made me less happy with it.

    I think this tells the story better; I'm not sure if I've got it right even now. I hate knowing what I want to convey, but can't quite get it across . It wasn't for a portfolio, although the studio renders were potentially going to become that.

    Appreciate the comments.

    Currently working on a reworking of the first studio render.

    It should be.

    The new render is much better, but I hate to mention the monochrome textures in the BG. While it does give more interest to the car, the background just doesn't seem right in both color and lighting. In all honesty, the hand inside with that black yellow thing, whatever that is, doesn't fit right. It actually detracts from an otherwise professional job here. Interior is modeled extremely well, and the hand thing looks fake, rushed and out of position. Although I do get the story here..

    Having worked for awhile in this "industry" (and I hate saying that), I just want to make sure you see the potential you have here for something great, and I don't want it dumbed down by a bad background, lighting and composition.

    Well, that's going to spur me on. I guess I need to rethink the composition then; I'll keep the new one as a completed render for that particular story, but look at a new composition. Think I'll work a little more on the left building - I like it's look; it's somewhat modern that should hopefully contrast well with the 1950's car. What do you think? I will rethink its brick texture though.

    I think that's a good idea. Rethink the textures period, and make them fit in with that decade. A well-modeled realistic background trumps an image composition any day.

    the car looks pretty good but the scene kind of feels rushed. It would be nice to see the car dirted up as well it looks too pristine at the moment. But the scene is the big thing that needs the most work.

    I have 500 bad drawings in me before the good ones. And I have 319 to go, here they are.

    Not planning on dirtying the car up. But, yes, redoing the scene; it wasn't rushed, probably just lack of experience at doing one.

    Cheers.

    This is the image I decided to base 'Christine' off.

    It's not exactly a belvedere or a fury, but something of a hybrid. I don't think there is a difference, shape-wise; it seems to be what decorations get added to the basic body shape - bumpers might be different too. The images, I was using, however, were of various years.

    Will Darnell garage? No clue on that.

    Latest studio render, I've been working on; I like this, although I can't decide if I want the background slightly lighter or darker.

    No problem and it's a long time since I've seen it - my copy was on vhs and it vanished long before the player did; I switched to dvd in 1999, so it has been a while.

    Well, if you were in the States, you'd see this damn movie on TV all the time That and a million commercials! Oh, and the blue background.... not so much. Distracting.

    *by distracting, I mean it's too bold. Go contrast with the color of the car, or go greyscale. That's your best bet.
