Looking pretty good Brian!
That piece of render is simply awsome. it is something i waish i made myself sniff but the first time i made a car, it looked like a space ship. lol. Maybe someone will make a tute for making such a complex car image someday hint.
Keep doing wonders and i’ll keep track of 'em.
BTW, i think you should enter this piece of work at the blender demoreel project under photorealism. IMHO. Now where’s that link…
Anyway. keep up the good work, and do what you want to do, don’t mind those people who has diffrent opinions on how you prefer to present things. Besides, we can’t make everyone happy now can we?
