On to the next one.

Ok a few minor tweaks were made to the GTR to stop the jpeg artifacts. I am calling it done. I am putting it to bed.

A friend asked to see the lighting setup for this. Now, I don’t normally share lighting setups as I am a firm believer that you can pretty much workout the lighting for a car just by looking at the reflections. Well he guessed right so I guess there is no harm in sharing it then. So, for those of you that are interested, here it is:

Pretty basic to be honest, there is no real trickery going on here, just nice soft, consistent reflections highlighting subtly the curves of the car.


I enjoyed working on this image. It’s probably one of my favourite renders that I have ever made. I have to thank my mate over at http://www.distortedimagery.co.uk/ for his help. He showed me the light. (sorry for the bad joke) So I guess it is time to move onto the next image. I am going do a car in a white studio as it is something that I haven’t done before. The choices for the cars are:

  • Ferrari 458 Italia
  • Ferrari California
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Lamborghini Reventon
  • Mercedes SLS AMG

Right now I am leaning towards the Merc – I think it will suit the white studio.


Let me know what you think…
