Hello and welcome to the second Blender Car modelling workshop. I have slightly renamed this to a modelling jam and if my nerves should hold over the next eight weeks. I want to turn this into a recurring project with a new topic every month not just cars. I am thinking of something similar to conceptart.org’s CHOW. This first modelling jam will last for two months.
The theme for this modelling jam is Iconic Movie Car. You can model any car that you want provided it fits the following criteria. It must have appeared in a movie and it must be iconic. An iconic car will becomes the focal point of attention movie simply, by seeing the car you must be reminded of the movie or t.v series it appeared in. The are many cars that appear in movies the vast majority are not iconic so pick carefully.
The modelling jam starts on the 23 July and Ends on the 17 of September. Draw up a schedule of how much time you want to spend modelling, texturing and rendering. I would advise not spending less than three weeks modelling and another three or two on texturing. Don’t rush aim to produce high quality work.
The car must be modelled and textured. You can model the car realisticly or choose to stylise it in some manner. You must texture your car. Think of the kind of damage the car is likely to have suffered at the hands of its owner and try and show this with your texture. No cars in pristine conditions should be posted at the end, grime and damage.
Learning and improving in this thread occurs by you giving critiques and accepting critiques when the are given. Don’t take negative critiques personally remember that the are meant to help you improve and are usually more helpful than praiseful positive ones especially if you want to improve. No one is an expert here so help by critiquing and sharing working tips where ever you can.
Post wireframe shots. Simple wireframes shots done in edit model that are clear and easy to read make it easier for those who want to help you to do so. When you post wireframes keep it simple and straight forward, clear and simple to read wins over fancy.
