Reventon - Low Poly Principled BSDF This model (not of my making) is only 15,000 faces. I textured using the Principled BSDF of Blender 2.79 and an undercoat simulating carbon fibre . Clearly there appear to be some differences between the Blender version and the Disney model. It would seem that there are a possible 10Bn tones...
Aventador At SimonsTown Naval Base RSA - Rear View Is dit nou goed genoeg ?. Simonstown HDRI. Using branched path tracing in cycles picked up the 'glow' from the vehicles paintwork. Cycles is a quality rendering engine which challenges VRay in my opinion.
Aventador At SimonsTown Naval Base RSA Is dit nou goed genoeg ?. Simonstown HDRI. The render looks good with some nice colour scattering. Used BPT. It is a backplate but I made a special shadow catcher to merge in and get the reflections.
Lamborghini Countach LP500 Quatrovalvolle This is the third of the three vehicles I am working on modelling. It has been the hardest. Like the other two I am continuing to work on it as there are obvious areas that need tweaking. This is 100% modelled from scratch based on a drawing. Simonstown HDRI.
C1 1957 Corvette This is being modelled from drawings and some very helpful reference images. Its 100% original modelling. No kit bashing here. The paint job looks particularly good and is a variation on the KT original nodes. A work in progress. Simonstown HDRI.
Corvette C3 1979 Custom First attempt at modelling the Corvette from some drawings. It can only get better !. Really this helped me to better understand the need for a well thought out topology and how the control points in the mesh with just a little alteration can drastically alter a body shape. Used branched path tracing for rendering. Simonstown HDRI.
Lady Arabella Stuart Daughter of Elizabeth Cavendish and Charles Stuart. Cousin to James VI of Scotland and niece to Mary Queen Of Scots. Grandmother was Bess of Hardwick Hall.

Harley Davidson Centennial Knight Lot of fun making this image. Good practice in creating smooth/hard edges. The glossy textures and a 10K HDRI makes plenty of noise and even at 5000 samples it's still noisy. More to do on this. Different Knights and bikes to build next.
