wow putting together all those logo's must have taken forever. Nice job on the model too. Looks sweet. I am amazed by people who do low poly, I have a hard time with it! My friend wanted me to do a go-cart for him, and it was like me thinking of creative ways to do stuff with basically nothing lol. Thank's for sharing.
bit more work done, switched to the body for a change of scenery.
Big thanks to dave3d, for the reference, filled in a couple of holes in my library.
Thanks for you comments guys!
Killer, I think you're refering to dave's image, I imagine he Uv unwrapped the whole thing to do the textures. Which I will be doing too at some point I will post some details of the unwrapping workflow when the time comes.
I only have 3 words for you "De" "light" "ful"..... no more to say
Please show us mortals some wires so we can smell excelence... well, kind of... Could you please update your profile with your machine settings???? I wonder how many Umpa Lumpas you've got there pedaling (if you know wnat I mean)
Keep updating please, this is so motivating :thumbsup:
Thankyou Namreg, you are too kind. And yes I keep forgetting to dig up that file for you! I will try to remember tonight. I enjoyed your reminder!
I will post some wires but there is nothing very exiting about them. Especially as I'm trying to keep this as a low poly high-poly model if that makes sense. To many polys and the renders take too long and I lose my workflow. right now it's still under a million.
The doughnut was originally called a "ragjoint" or Metalastik joint. To be correct ('60's vintage) this shaft would have only 2 joints, the doughnut at the trans and the U-joint at the wheel.
The doughnut allows for some telescoping (length) movement. When the suspension moves up and down the driveshaft has to change length. U-joints alone can't do this.
The doughnut was replaced by modern CV joints (which can change length) because they were hazardous due to breakage. If you want to model this car as a vintage/historic race car you could model CV axles because that's all they run now.
