Hey all i kinda changed my mind and decided to do a chase scene where an f22 will be hunting down the nissan skyline gtr Firing missiles. I dont exactly have a very good camera so i got a backplate and hdri image from hdri locations so here are the images .

The f22 still needs alot of work so ill spend the night refining the model

i realize i dont have alot of vertical real estate but the focus is going to be more on the car than anything else

I highly recommend using a different photo background, one with alot more scope and better lighting to show off the action your going to give us.

Dude you have until tomorrow to tweak then I'll post up a finals thread. The missiles could do with a color correction I think

Cool! That's not going to end well (the scene, I mean). The missiles look pretty plasticky at the moment. Webster reassures me that plasticky is really a word. This is just personal preference, but I think it would make more sense to have the blur in the background more of a motion blur (so in line with the car?) rather than extending radially, if that makes sense.

Cheers muramb, thats looking pretty good! I have to agree about the missiles, they do need color correction.
