F1 2000 - Michael Schumacher at Variante Alta

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all doing ok.

I just wanna share with you my latest work.
Reproduction of a photography taken in 2000 during Imola GP.
Cloths were made in Marvelous designer (suit and gloves), shaders in Quixel and Substance Designer with some tweaks in cycles node system.

Hope you like it!


@bartv what do you think? (Hope everything is alright for you during this crazy moment)

Haha yes I discussed it with Alban. I want to do it. Maybe the scene and then Michael as a separate file.
The only thing I need to figure out is how I can bake all the in-blender modification I did to the textures and shaders.

But yes I want to!

I love it. From the pebbles on the track to Michael’s shoelaces - everything’s just as it should be. Also, the dynamism of the scene is very well captured, with perfect cropping and just the right amount of blur. Really great work.

Thank you guys :pray:t2:

@MDR43Arch You could go all the way up to 18000 rpm during this era :sweat_smile:

I don’t quite go back to Tazio Nuvolari, but my last time watching a race, Mark Donahue was driving a Ferrari at Watkins Glen. Briefly owned a 1959 Ferrari California Prototype, kept it to 6200 rpm. Pretty much a NASCAR fan since those days. Cheers.

Following some comments on shared post, I reworked the tires roughness to have it more worse (more rough).

It appears to be wayyy better

Hope you like it!
Cheers guys

I featured you on BlenderNation. Stay safe, and have a great weekend!

As long I am a “tifoso”, I really love your projects.
How did you create the film effect on the helmet’s glass?

I mixed a transparent Shader with the Principled one.
Using a procedural noise as a Factor for the mix node.
