thx for comments guys. done with rear lights.....tough job again....
its coming along beautifully
and just some photoshop for fun tonite....what it could look like in the end. Remember i'm doing 3er stock version right now because I have a scanned mesh. Then M3 version. Then why not an M3 Touring to create something unique (like the RS5 sportback was...)
dang, you are making fast progress. can you share some CVs? I think this is more complex then your Audi, do you spend a lot of time playing with curves before you start surfacing?
I'm curious about modeling after scan data, where's the fun in it? It's just like retopologizing in polys, it's more or less copying, I cerntainly don't enjoy doing it at work.
radu, it's just something i never did seriously for a whole vehicule. And i'm trying to complete my skills. I find it in the end harder than modelling without scan because you want to stick to it as a class A job and it's not easy. Even if it really help getting the right volumes and reflections.
ps : give my greetings to Xavier L.
Touring ftw! I have no idea what you are doing but it looks awesome!
Thank you for the answer!
I guess someone's pain is another man's pleasure.
I was under the impression you also do it at work that's why I was courious as to why you would spend your personal time doing the same thing at home, I didn't know where the fun was but I understand now, thnaks for the explanation.
I'll say hello to Xavier, also, me and some collagues are going to TCR next week, maybe we can stumble upon eachother although the place is very big.
Moved to Advanced, looking forward to see it finished!
thx radu !
some progress on the hood and windshield. easy parts for tonite !
perfection, all your projects should be in advanced!
when I see how many patches (surfaces) are necessary to reach required shapes of this car, I'm little bit afraid of modeling a bmw as my next car, when will be my current audi project finished. How do you able to keep everything so clean and smooth with that number of different surfaces? Anyway great work and I wish to have your skills one day
thx neutron, this is why I wanted to try a BMW, because it looked a lot more complex than the Audi....and indeed it is !! about the number of surfaces (especially on the side), actually I began with big slabs but i had to split them after to get the right reflexions.....
mesh scan helped a lot for this obviously....
fender and A pillar/windshied finisher....
wow the a-pillar really tied it together. That's so beastly! Do they cheat on the shutlines like you found out audi did on your RS5?
for now this is stock version so no cheating. I've seen though that they do it on the M3, which has stock version door but widened fenders (the "cheating" or at least the break in continuity is visible mostly on the rear door shut line)
Sounds like a common thing car companies do then. Sometimes i wish i could cheat lol
front bumper started....not an easy area either....
should be easy with the worlds biggest shutline
