BMW M3 Custom by dangeruss BMW M3 Custom by dangeruss
This render showcases a custom BMW M3 modeled by, and commercially available at [link]. I've constructed the background elements and composed the scene in 3D Studio MAX 5.1 As part of the texturing process I created a complex multi-layer, raytraced paint material that IMHO really captures the metalic silver well. I had a lot of fun with the puddles, even though the added significantly to the render time. This was rendered in several passes (one taking over 7.5 hours on a dual 2.0GHz Xeon box!) and composited in Photoshop.

UPDATED -- OK, the hole in the hood is now covered by a rear induction cowl. I also fiddled with the reflections to make them less mirror like. Better?

Oh, they're cool to have around. I rarely go back and redo stuff. I like to see my progression and (hopefully) improvement. Compared to today's techniques, this is pretty poor.

Looks great although the side mirrors are rediculously small and the grille has too big of a gap between the kidneys...

But I love this car man, you did an awesome job...
And even 6 years ago, your work was awesome :D

Gonna have to fav this one

the puddles are horrible and the textures are very low res, but other than that it's very good

i like it for being created with 3DS 5.1.
have you thought about recreating it or re-rendering it in 3DS 2008. perhaps fiddling around with the textures.

Mirrors are a bit small, and the mirroring in the water should be mroe clear (hard to explain), but as you said it's one of your first cars...

I think it looks great anyway :D

Everything is beautiful - but the seats. They're bloody artificial and disgusting.

How I hate stoopid comments like this. Learn some manners punk!

Wouldn't have this said the same thing?: "Everything is beautiful - but the seats. They lack realism and detract from the piece". And my reply might have been, "Yeah, it's a really old work of mine, my first 3D car, actually. There's loads of stuff that could be better"

However, yours reads much like: "Everything is beautiful - but the seats." They're shite and your work disgusts me". So instead, my inital reply is "Sod off you wanker!"
