Hi folks. I decided to have a go at modelling a car. I chose the Fiat because it happened to be the picture I was looking at and I thought it looked fairly straightforward (I was very wrong about this, lol). It’s by no means perfect (my main problem was that I subdivided the body way too early, meaning that subsequent changes to the shape were a bit of a nightmare). I’m definately going to try another car and it should be a lot easier as I learnt a lot while doing this.
The model features a detailed interior and adjustable seats, as well as steering, etc.
The promo renders were done in DS3 advanced. I added a reflection map to the body, mirror and chrome surfaces which you will have to do manually if want to. You will also need to adjust the bumpmap settings (especially on the tyres). Colour changes were done by simply changing the diffuse colour for the body surface.
The registration number is from a friend’s car and I was given permission to use it so you shouldn’t have any legal problems (you can always make your own using the provided template).
Hope you find it useful.
