Default Subtle tweaks and such

However, I also have enough experience to know that subtle little tweaks and seeing things up close and personal can give one a totally different impression than a 1D render.

Thus, I'm in "wait and see" mode and have no need to waste my time critiquing pictures, which are likely to not fully capture the finished product. I find those who do like you running a fools errand and just plain silly.

The C7 is a good example. I really didn't like it in the period leading up to, and for some period of time after, the reveal. As a result, I purchased a Jaguar F-Type. Over time, it really grew on me, and I now really like the design. I went through the same process with the 911 over a couple of decades. I used to absolutely hate them, but now I appreciate the the styling.
I don't believe in "subtle tweaks" as game changers. I do believe that fundamental proportions and design direction are the true determinants of a sports car's aesthetic appeal.

I see little change in the basic proportions and none in the design direction. It's an extremely busy design. And if you like that, you'll like the car.

This is my first Photoshop car-swap. I'll bet someone can find the original.



I would give credit to the original photographer if I knew who it was.

Yeah. That's what it really needed--to get narrower and higher proportionally.

Great.

Super.

Nice, I was hoping you'd do a render in Sebring orange at some point. I love that color and it looks like it works well on that car.

Yup I'm sold on the Sebring Orange, thanks for this render, looks pretty exotic with the lighting effects.

I shouldn't make big changes rashly without double checking again and when I am punch drunk. The orange render won't show it but I recalibrated my horizontal rescale from 90% to 95%. So, a little wider than my first OMG resize. I have a lot of panel cutting to do today.

I have a feeling this car is going to be less bulky than many of the renders.

Undoubtably. My modeler doesn't have a "De-bulk-ify" plug-in.

In the camo pic of the rear window are we looking at the glass or some type camo covering over the glass?




It looks as if it may be elevated. Also looks like there three spots that look like bolt holes. The one on the upper left looks like there may be a bend or crease leading from it to the side.

We are definitively looking at the rear glass with a significant camo hiding its actual details. Really nice suurprise is ahead at the reveal.

Black beauty.

I cut all the panel lines, which I learned is very difficult and risky to the integrity of the model, but the results are well worth it. No more bump maps or faked highlight shadow lines in Photoshop.

That is terrific looking Chazcron. I might have to eat my words that “no more black Corvettes.”

STUNNING!

What program are you using to create these models and renders? That's looking really nice.

Good lord, that's a great piece of work.

That bad news it depicts an extremely unattractive car.
