a friend of mine has one of these and it is absolutly beautiful, so i decided to make one, but couldn’t find bp’s, so i made my own the car will be black, its only red so i can see the flaws. <<<use newest URL>>>
Great work !
Specially for re-creating the BP’s !! I think it would be a good idea the you’ll share them once you’ve finished the model …
i do plan on sharing the bp’s, ill probably put them on www.suurland.com but unless u really know the curves of a 67 gto, it will be very hard to make
Really nice clean work!
I am at about the same stage with a Toyata Supra and I am just starting to discover how much time and effort goes into something like this. :-?
Are you using subsurfs?
Can you show us a wire-frame view of this?
i added a wire frame rendering, with a subsurf with subdiv at 1, i rendered the solid with subdiv at 4, the model is a pretty simple low poly, i just start with the door creating the profile curve and extrude
here is an updated view with the roof and some of the chorme moldings added http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/pontiac/gtowip_2.html and the molding do not have a chrome texture applied yet, just so you know.
oh fer the love of pete! compress those pictures! sheesh… whew…just went threw 8 full minuites of loading…8 minutes of my life gone! and i want them back now!
its looking beautiful your car model… im anxious to see it done and please…please please please please make a full scene for it =) alot of people like to quit after making a hard car and just add a floor…but a scene makes the car look so many times better just a suggestion… im seeing no flaws(except file size and type) so far on your model, great job =D
That is absolutley beautiful work scrappy! I love the GTO. One of my all time fave cars, (for being a GM product no less ).
As imgranpaboy said, definitely put it into a scene. I am still trying to get my textures done on my jag, but I will be making a track and doing the grass, etc. Just gives it that extra touch that makes a good image into a great image.
Keep us updated.
the body contours are excellent,this is going to be a beautifull model.
keep it coming,and definately add a scene,i cant wait to see this finished.
Very nice work. I like you modeling skills. I really have no crits, just wanted to make you feel good about yourself! Your blueprints look excellent and I can’t wait to see it finished with windows and that nice asphalt texture you pointed me to.
my ideas as far as the background goes, will be an old style gas station, or a barn
ok, the body (sheet metal) is done, now im working on all of the chrome. once the chrome is done ill do the windows and interior http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/pontiac/gtowip_4.html and i actually got a decent looking shine to the car, its just a sky image with the mapping set to “ref”. i believe imagrandpaboy showed me that trick
wow, this thing feels like it’ll never get done, i worked on it for hours today, and the only thing i got done was the chrome pieces http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/pontiac/gtowip_5.html it will have clear windows when the interior is finished, but for now im being lazy and i just realized that i didn’t put the emblem on the rear quarter panels yet…oops!!
wow, this thing feels like it’ll never get done
Welcome to the world of modeling a car I have been painting textures for my Jaguar GT car for 2 weeks now. No where near being done. So I know the feeling.
Anyway, this is coming along great. It’s even better than your coupe. Just keep on pluggin along and you will get there. One thing that I have learned, don’t worry about texturing anything until you get the model done. That might make things a little easier for you.
very tight modelling!!texturing once in a while is a good thing actually,
it helps show flaws and dents that dont show up until later.
i feel your pain cars can be very frustrating,try getting the headlight
of a 66 jag to come out right with the body curves,aaaaarrrrgh.
excellent job,looks like your gonna keep me on my toes :o
Hohoho, really nice!
/me too loves starting to make materials and textures befor having finished the model…
Scrappy, All I got to say is WOW! Super great modeling, very clean lines.
The chrome looks great too! It all looks Awsome. I continually am awe struck by alot of you artists and your work. I hope you are feeling proud of that, as well you should, that is one Fine piece of metal. I am really impressed (and a bit envious). May I ask one question?
- Approximately how many hours so far have you put in on your car?
NDNChief, still a NOOB, UGH!!!
P.S. Viewing Art like yours really inspires and motivates me to keep on trying to tame this beast we all know as Blender3D…
i would say i have about 20 hours so far, and i just can’t help myself, i have to start texturing before the model is done
DAMN SCRAPPY IS THAT YOURS!? MMMMMMMM
ITS A BEAUTIFUL RIDE!
ok this is a quick “unfinished project” render that i made just so i can get a nice print of the car, it took about 45 miniuts to render at 1600 x 1200, its because i used the GI tutorial by Tommy5 to get some decent lighting if anyone has a better way of lighting that cuts down the render time, please share , i then took the image in photoshop and made it smaller 800x600 and 150 ppi. backgrounds are not my thing, personaly i thing this background sucks, its the second picture down on this page, if you have a slower connection you are warned http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/pontiac/gtowip_6.html
