We’re back with another entry in our weekly community project, where we post a render or animation created by a member of the Cgtuts+ community, and ask you to provide feedback and constructive criticism on their work. It’s a great way to learn more about the intricacies of computer graphics, express your viewpoint, and have your own content critiqued by your fellow artists!
Quick Ground Rules
- Be nice! We’ve deliberately chosen work that isn’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
- Feel free to offer any type of advice on – Modeling, Texturing, Materials, Lighting, Rendering, Composition, etc.
- You can also link to another render that you feel offers a great example of this type of content done exceptionally well.
So let’s get to it, here’s this week’s entry created by Will Roos!
A Little Background
I used a model that I downloaded from the net, still a bit new to 3d Modeling and busy creating my first model now. Anyway here is my first car render using 3ds Max and Mental ray. I really love old school muscle cars, so I thought I would start by rendering out a pre-made model. I like the reflections and lighting of the scene, although I know it could still use a lot of work. I would like to know how to make the models I create in the future look as realistic as possible. Please any info to improve my work would be appreciated.
