hi, are you going to make the interior?
If you wont i think this should be in the finished stuff forum because there is nothing to crit! It is just so cool!
see you around!
keep it updated!

Hmmmm...very nice. I love it dude. But I do have a crit. muahaha...lol...jk My crit has to do with the back end of your car...I dont know what they are called but its the things that are over your wheels that makes em look like the whell is in half?
Well I think that piece needs to be more flush with the body. right now it looks like it is going to fall off and that it really isnt connected to anything...Unless it "is" supposed to look that way, then forget what I all just said..lol...great work dude.
Thanks for the replies.

Btw Mystikos, how's the Miura going?
I'll produce render shots of the interior as soon as i model the seats, floor and door fittings.
by brighter blue do you mean the Chevrolet bowtie? Maybe i'll increase the bump rate for it to stand out.
i used the VRay map on the reflection slot. No MAX raytrace.
the interior is being slowly accomplished, as usual i am doing this between my daily ordinary work. Seats come next.
this is the fender skirt. The whole area around it needs attention. Thanks for noticing.
I'll be posting updates along the week.

Love your old cars.
Well, here's what I mean.... Hope you don't mind me destroying your image
16-03-2004, 10:09 AM
well what can I say, you've done it again. Nice work!

I put the Miura on hold: I've just started modelling a Porsche 356 Speedster
Can't wait to see more
Here's the interior.
Tire & hubcap:
Skirt corrected, mirrors added, minor tweaking. Rendered with 4 prepasses to reduce artifacting.

nice, very nice. not really a wip though...
18-03-2004, 03:29 AM
I've always loved those cars; such elegant form. Looks incredible to me, but I don't know enough about cars to nitpick details.
Thanks keescopyright and Marcia.
Definitely a WIP, by all means. Not far from finishd but not quite there yet.
Textured the hood emblem.

Nice work as usual Dan.
How many of these classic cars do you have now?
I think it's time for a book :D
have you tried looking for a publisher?
18-03-2004, 09:32 AM
when i see your amazing work i want to deinstall my max......
it looks really great
18-03-2004, 09:54 AM
Looks great your car! Thx for posting a rendershot of the interior, which is also really good! ;)
I don't know what else you'll do on this car, but keep up the good work!
Another small thing. I'm still trying to modell a car, it would be nice if you post a wireframe of that car. :roll:
Thanks Mark. There are eight now. I'm not sure about a book but i guess it's about time to dedicate them a site...
Goose: don't give up, just join the fun.
Zortech, here's the wire, prior to a truckload of tweaking.
amazing, the mesh is so clean :) great work
Actually the mesh had a few glitches most of it i fixed.
Here's the final render.
the mesh is damn neat too!
i love the way you modeled it! :D
specially the interior...
will there be shots of interior in the final image which you'll post?
just wondering, did you use image of a headlight as a texture?
Thanks. I'm thinking of rendering some closeups and yes, it's an image available in http://www.danielbuck.net/

Awesome...I love how you fixed the skirt. looks really nice now, flows along side the body real good. Now theres one more thing thats bugging me but I dont know if its because of the view of your last render but it involves the red stripe on the side of the car. if you look to where the door starts off just a little bit to the right it looks as if the metal isnt connected to the body and that there is a gap there. If you dont mind I can circle the area Im talking about with your permission.

Really good work! I had a look at your webiste, you are a very skillfull...
Thx for posting the wireframe...which is really clean! Very intresting...
i know what you mean, still tweaking around will get to it as well.
sorry for the misunderstanding, this is Daniel Buck's website where i got the headlight image. Mine is still under construction;)
