    A personal project.

    100% CGI environment.
    Particles used for splashes by wheels
    Scatter used for raindrops on the car
    Motion blur is 100% rendered.
    AfterEffects used to lens flare.
    Road texture from SM-Cars library (thanks! It is brilliant!)

    I will be doing a full breakdown on this image here: Dav3design's Blog | Dave's 3D Blog

    It's so great to see you back in business, and this looks like a huge leap forward compared to your older renders. Very very artistic, so many thought through elements everywhere. Looks just like a professional advertisement picture!

    Excellent render! The overall looking, cam angle, motion feeling and so on feels really brilliant! That's how it should be.

    pro:
    - Wheels are top notch (shading, blur, steering, camber)
    - cam angle
    - composition
    - road, top notch wet shader

    contra:
    - paint looks like blue chrome
    - windows could use some gradient (fake polar filtering)

    Fair comments Duron.

    I totally agree with you on the windshield. About the paint, I made it a little more glossy as if it was wet. It has just been raining after all ;)

    Thanks for the comment man, nice of you to stop by. I spent a fair amount of time getting the samples right for the motion blur, both camera and geometry. :)

    Glad you like it man, means a lot!
