looks good man!
will throw out my two cents tho.
First.. no dents or dings needeth be added. It's a restored beauty.
I like your last render.
the layer over it seems tries to give the impression of a vintage poster? if ya want, try to fade it just a little <the car not the top layer> or fade the background to a darker grey instead of black.
also the red in the front rim between the top right spokes doesn't look right as well as the the red under the bumper in the darkness
Side view, my favorite. that background light does the trick. and is kinda what Im talking about in the 3/4 view. maybe make the light bigger on the background? to cover from the front of the car to the read so total detail of the car is shown and not blacked out?
one more thing. that poor car has a bad owner with those horrible disc brakes. he needs to take them down ASAP and have them resurfaced. Hehe I totally understand the look ur going for there but smooth the surface out some. they look like they have been grinding for a while now.
as I said my two cents.. dump it if u want
but dude! excellent work man, am loving it, one of the best looking cars ever made and you got it spot on. been following this since you first showed signs of progress! way to follow through and thanks for sharing!! are you planning on rendering a eye level view with finished interior?
hope to see that one soon!
