Car Render Challenge 2019: a gorgeous Italian in Texas
I've not being sitting still in the meantime and I've got to say, I have this idea to try to draw as easy as possible and I thought I found the solution, I fell down really hard. I also kinda lost a lot of time trying, but that is okay. This way, I learned to know my weaknesses. So this is what I learned so far in my journey to try drawing spot on.
Before I clarify myself to my problem, I've to emphasize that I'v got an immense problem with cars manufactured estimated between the 50's and the 70's, that have perfectly round head and tail lights, with actual designer blueprints of that time that are not quite accurate on all sides. They were hand drawn and with our 3D methods, it leaves a lot to be desired. I found prove in duplicating this car in 3D that eventually the production of the car were quite different.
But that is okay, cause the designer did an amazing job manufacturing this one of the most beautiful cars in the world. To note, she was handcrafted.
So I thought, I figured everything out, scaling, moving and rotating the bold fenders around the head and tail lights, I thought I had the solution and I came up with this.
Thank you so much. I'm not interested to win this contest, because I know the prices will not allow me to use the prices amazing software given, because of insufficient hardware at the moment, I could have chosen differently of my tactics. I've had already investigated new, modern cars with true accurate blueprints, I have decided to go for cars that were not already duplicated in 3D.
I'm particularly in 60's and 70's cars and I thought they were doable for me to recreate, but during my journey, I discovered, I lack a lot of experience to accurately, in an easy way to draw those cars, because most of them have perfectly round lights and I failed to duplicate it in my own easy way to challenge this issue. I did a huge amount of research into this, I see the lines of the original hand drawn designs of the original designers, I just lack to recreate those cars in my own way. And I'm sure, I will fall numerous times before I will conquer my flaws, I agree with you, I might be halfway to solve all this issues I try to achieve in minimum effort, I learned so much so far, this challenge is making me to try to get the best out of me and I'm going for it.
I know where my flaws are and I'm trying to conquer these. To be short, I could have already designed a current time car, with perfectly computer made blueprints, they are so much easier then the older cars I try to duplicate in 3D, I fall, I renegotiate with myself what the problem is and till now, I figured for myself, to make progress, I needed to step down and go further to develop myself. And I'm sure I will get there.
All my progress no previous attempts are saved. I have quite various cars in my agenda I'd like to finish and by the time I know the trick trying in my way, I will continue. And this is the goal for me. I'll keep posting after the challenge, I estimate now not being in time, I'll keep trying to get more experienced.
This all being said, I again have issues, accordingly the true hand draw blueprint, to go forward in my journey. And this is what it is all about for me and this challenge triggered me to try a little harder.
I hope to figure out my problem with hand drawn blueprints in a few days and I'd love to upload my progress.
Thank you so much and I wish every contestant really the best. What I've seen so far, consider me toast. You all have done amazing jobs, (laughing) I can't compete, you have all created amazing designs, don't mind me, me feeling toast, you all have done an amazing job.
And now I'm on t again to try to figure out my problem I see in the original handcrafted blueprint of this car. Not if, but when I have solved this, the rest is a piece of cake. And this is where I'm going for, a perfect design of a momentarily 70's car. Make you feel surprised, I'm eager to finish this car within 22 days as a beginner 3D artist, knowing for myself, I was this accurate to the original model.
An amazing job to all the contestants, you have all done an astonishing job, I love to see your end results. Good luck to all of you.
I've got the rest of the evening free to spent my time trying to make progress. I've been playing around with my drawing and I have not made a lot of profress so far, I've to say, I think I captured the model spot on. And I came to realize a few things.
First, I spotted a flaw in my design that is kinda giving me figuratively headaches. I noticed when smoothing out the squares of my model, I see a huge flaw and knowing every step I did to avoid this, it is now there and to my believe, this should not have happened. I;m giving away the problem I see so far, first the unsmoothed design followed by the smoothed design with a red circle around the area that is not making sense to me.
So far, I'm really satisfied and although I've not yet went beyond my knowledge in 3D drawing with Blender, I feel close to the solution of my problem with 3D modeling. This contest is making me try to get the most out of it and I'll try to insert myself as a candidate, I'm having major issues, my result so far for me is unbelievable, I can't find the right words, I've been triggered, not my goal, but I got tempted to explore myself to make me better.
I've been working on the car again and I encountered a few issues that stood in my way to achieve my goal too overcome my flaws in designing this car. I always save my progress and to let you know, I've been deleting 3 files, I came to the idea that I had one edge of the bonnet to much to extrude the lines according to the sides. And although I spent a few hours on this, I learned again a great deal.
I've already deleted the files without making a screenshot, because I thought it was not adding new information, I believe that skipping one line will make the difference in my approach designing this car. You just have to take my word in it.
In the meantime, I started to develop the gas station, which location lies on the old route 66 in Texas, so I thought, I'll give you a quick preview.
