Good afternoon. At the suggestion of Falott when he saw the Haunted House I was doing he suggested I try Beveling and maybe SUB-D. I tried a tutorial, I am sorry to say from another company, and I am complete with the model except for a few minor things. I feel very satisfied with how it came out. I need to put it in a scene and to light it. Lighting and rendering are something I need to learn. Any suggestions on learning lighting would be appreciated.
I have also purchased the Car Modeling of a BMW done here by Kurt and I have always enjoyed his tutorials and learned so much.
this car is way better than my first car was. infact my first 5 cars where never finished at all. to have a nice rendering of your carpaint reflections is to set up the lightning properly. I have somewhere on my HD pictures of a studio lightning setup from industry photographers. over all its important to enlight the car indirectly with self illuminating planes or spotlights reflecting from surfaces. also the light shouldn´t have very intensive colors. gilberts had done really nice lightning setups for his superb cars.
wait a minute. I´ll have to search for my files.
everything starts and ends in the right place at the right time.
Well sunset from hell kind of does describe it. But I will correct that and that you for liking my model.
Falott many thanks for sending along the stuff on lighting. It was just 3 months ago when you saw my Haunted House that I started modeling. And I am VERY surprised how it came out. And you started me on this journey when you told me I needed to try Beveling and Sub-D. I will look over what you have sent about the lighting and I will give it a shot.
Thanks again for the responses. I truly do appreciate it!!!
