Car Render Challenge 2017 - TVR Spitfire
Hey Everyone! This is Sunil here.
So! Total disclosure, i did not start this project with the intend of participating in this challenge. It just so happened that the recent news of the iconic TVR re-launch as the new griffin made me a bit anxious. Not because of my over bearing affinity towards the brand but with all due respect, i thought the new model was a tad under whelming. Not to say that i can do better, but i wanted to express myself. I started a series of not so serious rough scribbles in my notebook and got somewhere i could cure my anxiousness a bit.
To top all of this, i have also been a bit out of focus from all my peers and the design world as most of my projects have been confidential. And BAM! the Rendering challenge by HUM3d came across. Now i know the vast-immense talent pool that dwells on the internet and also in this Forum. So needless to say i was nervous whether to participate and make a fool of myself as this is a rendering challenge rather than a car design challenge. But as the days passed by, all the gorgeous renders here only made me inspired. Hence i decided to take part. I worked most evenings for an hour to two on the rendering project. I finally finished it. So this is my version of the new era of TVR.
Following are a series of images that shows my progress on my version on the relaunched TVR rendering. This design has nothing to do with the griffin, Hence i named it as the TVR Spitfire. The nomenclature comes from none other than the Super-marine Spitfire, which used to in a way remind me a lot about the old TVRs. Raw, Agile and Unapologetic about their appearance. I tried to blend the organic and mechanical together in the design. The following is the result.
The model is made in Rhinoceros and the renderings are done in Keyshot. And for the rendering i thought, as its inspiration comes from the Spitfire, why not include that too in the rendering. Some detail shots of the car :
I know i bored you with the montage , So henceforth its all about the design! I wish everyone the best of luck! I will add a few more progress images before the final render Submission. 🙂
Now for final rendering scenes. I was fascinated with the idea of a chrome wrapped car as i used the material to study my model surface. Also the spitfire had a cool aluminum finished image on the internet. So i though of using the desert or a salt flat for the photo shoot set up.
