Update: you can find the model here: http://www.blendswap.com/blends/user/624861
Ignore the flashy presentation of the pictures. Having a really difficult time convincing myself this is “real”. I need help but i dont know what it is yet. The white background picture is my first render attempt. The black “glossy” picture is my more recent attempt. Things I’ve learned or realized so far:
Tires where too glossy
Rim metallic texture could be more real.
The panel lines where cut too thick.
The headlights needed better detail or a different approach
Trying to figure out how to get that “sparkle” finish under the red paint coat like in real cars.
Beyond that, I dont know what I’m doing wrong. Something seems off. I know it’s a concept design but still. Is it the compositing? Is it the model itself? The PBR texturing?
Or am I on the right track?
