Project Mafia

Hey!
Zlatovous and I decided to make a little project together. He is going to make a vehicle, and i'm gonna make the guy who drives it. The theme is mafia, so both the car, and the man will be representing this style
We haven't talked about some details, like are we gonna make an environment for the car and the driver, but these things will be decided during work, so its gonna be interesting!
I hope i can bring the quality that Zlatovous can do, so the final piece will look nice, and harmonious.

All comments and crits are welcome!

edit: i'll cut the car, and the character together from time to time, so the progress will show up in the main thread section.

So let's get this rollin' mafia style :-)

Spent yesterday in technical museum of Tatra, looking for some good references. The company has 170 years of tradition so it has great variety of cars. I finally decided for one beauty I have found, called Tatra 57B. It's been here since 1939 and it was very popular and well-selling car even though it was an economy crisis. It's easy to handle, maintain and running costs are quite low. The main purpose was a limo but it had found a way to normal life aswell.

I want to make this car as close to original as possible, so I have taken about hundred pictures of all details. Well, as much as I could - the interior was locked and it was unable to get nice picture from there. But I asked at information and they said meeting can be arranged with the manager of the museum and he will unlock it for me (unfortunately he was out of town that day). So I will probably have another trip there :-)

Anyway, here is my ref plate with some details to get your idea. Sorry for the blurred images, my hand was shaky and camera is pretty low end as well ( don't have tripod either)

Awesome!
I'm gonna put together an inspiration sheet. Probably watch godfather just to get the feeling right
I'm thinking about a "gentleman" in a suit, which is blue, and has a "line pattern". Of course a hat, and a Tommy gun. Red tie, white shirt, and a cigar.

I'm aiming for the typical gangster look!

Are you planning on making the low poly version of the car?

really slow progress started on the Thompson. Pretty plain at the moment.. gonna change lots of things, i just wanted to show that i'm alive
most of the things look odd on the gun right now.. its maybe because i was half drunk when i started this that was fun...

Looks good.
Though you might wanna post your references, because as far as im aware only the M1a1 has the stock screw.
Especially not the M1928 model.

Thanks Krallis!

I wasn't happy with the model of the gun, since it has some plain big shapes all over it. Nothing much to look at :S so i decided to search for little alternatives from real life, so i can cheat some life in to it.
I'm not done with the high poly, but i'm gonna be tonight, so it could look better then

Im modelling this one.
http://www.superdrummy.com/thompson.JPG
The m1a1, which is a different model to the m1928, which is what youve done.
Maybe its just that the boltis only on one side and all the pics I found were taken of the other side.

Keep it up

Nice start on the Thompson. I see you are getting into drift of things before character itself. That's good :-)

Also, I struggled and I struggled hard with car body since I wasn't able to find blueprints for this car and my photos weren't good for using as guide within Max itself, so I mostly eyballed. It's bit narrower than it should be, but I will fix it in a second. Just realised it after rendering :-) Also I will redo the grill, it desn't fit exactly. But other than that, happy with result :-)

so i searched for some references, and these are some of it.
so he is gonna have a hat, a shirt without sleeves, a vest (or what its called on the middle left ) pants like on the bottom left guy, and shoes with those white tingy on it.
Probably a cigar, and scars.
I don't know which way to go: boss character (fat) or combat character (slim). what do you think?
