View Full Version : Merc SL500 --> The New reality

Greetings to all!!!!
My last work. Think, all have recognized a wheelbarrow, so it is not necessary to describe it. As always car was done in Rhino, rendered in Brazil.
In last picture tried myself in photons (Radiocity) + GI + Omny. So the scene is overflown.
Comments and other things like that......

what can i say........it's really good, the headlights are great viewed in detail, but a litle weard at the first pic

yeah, even I felt the first picture ( near the headlights ) was a little weird, but i think it may be the reflections of the sky i guess.
hm.... could u show the mesh / wire ? :D

Very nice work man. I love it. Respect :cool:
11-07-2003, 08:37 AM
i like i like! but there might be some scale issues with the texture under the rear headlights
Hmh... Oh my god... That is great... Excellent except the licence plate on the 4th picture. The plate's texture is stretched and it looks pixelated...
And how the hell did you do the car texture? What specs and etc...
11-07-2003, 07:35 PM
Hellow! Thank`s guys! Thank`s a lot!
You`re right about the plate. It looks aweful! But i have a big problem with textures, i mean i don`t have good textures. So i draw this plate by myself and mixed it with Mars map (ain`t it funny!?!?).
The carpaint was made in Brazil. There is a good shader for it!
PS/ Wires tomorrow:cool:
Hmh... But if you run into problems with textures, then model the whole licence plate. The letters and the other markings or whatever they are...
Also, is this welded incorrectly or what?

well mp, my first thought was that you had a really good camera.
then i thought that i should just put myself out my misery that developed from staring with my jaw down out your sweeeeeeeet car.
great job! make a short ani of it zooming down the road and stuff, like a commercial. it'd be cool to see that baby in action
okay well if i could rate it it'd be like a bazillion out of 10, so there :D

To Chan: ye, there are some "bugs" in body (damn).....
then model the whole licence plate
Man, thank`s, but.... but... i`m not creazy to model 500-1000 objects more. Thank`s a lot ;)
To [X]treme: Man, that`s my "dream" to make that baby in action, BUT as i sad, i got no good textures. I will need a good Road, you know - that`s the problem.
Any way, i`ll try.. Thank`s! Good luck!

You have great modeling skill. However, I think the renders are not done very well. I'm not sure if it's because of the materials or the lighting but it doesn't look real. It looks just like a CG car which is a bad sign because I imagine you wanted it to look like a real car. If you took it as it is now and composited it in a real environment, it would stick out like a sore thumb and be instantly recoginzable as a CG car. Unfortunately, I know nothing about making things look real so I couldn't help you fix it. Good modeling though.
12-07-2003, 01:45 PM
for a more reaslistic theme i suggest a better lighting setup, cause the first one looks damn near real but the second one doesnt.
12-07-2003, 03:25 PM
You`re right guys. But it`s realy hard to make it REALY REAL. The second scene is CG from A to Z. Maybe, if have used the photo for backgroung, the car would be much better.
I`m not a professional, maybe someday ;)
Many Thanks to all of Ya!!!!

now you just need about 380.000 € and you can drive it :D
14-07-2003, 06:50 AM
To nurbs: Man, just tell me, what you wanna know, i`ll try to help with pleasure! (you can mail me).
To ACantarel: Ye, Man, you damn right! If i had these 380000 h. i would drive it for sure!!! (but i would need 10 processors more and about 10Gb DDR :D)
But i realy plan to "drive" it!
Yeah, I have seen a couple of the SL500 driving around here in Estonia... Aaaah... Drooling... Ok... I found out that a firm sells the SL500 here in Estonia for 1.4 million EEK (Estonian money) but if my math is right then that car costs about 90000 Euros here... 1 Euro = 15.6 EEK. Weird... The car is used, but it looks great from the pictures...
14-07-2003, 06:33 PM
@Chan: 90000 Euros ? That´s not possible! When it´s on the market, the price from the SLR will be around 390.000 €
But hey, there´s also the Porsche Carrera GT which costs 400.000 € or the Bugatti Veyron for about 1.700.000 € . Ok a bit of money but then you can drive 400+ km/h ! :D If you want to cruise, buy the Maybach for 400.000 €
Damn, who is going to pay this :eek: :???:
I'm talking about Estonia... And 1.4 million Estonian kroons is a lot of money here, but since the rate here is that 1 Euro equals 15.6 Estonian kroons, then that means, that here in Estonia the SL500 costs 90000 Euros... And it is used but it looks great...

@Chan: Ah ok, you´re talking about the SL. Ok I misunderstood this. I thought you were talking about the SLR :roll:
