I was perusing #buickriviera postings on Google and ran across this artists Riviera renderings using CAD I believe.

The link is to his Riviera images on Deviantart.com. Check out his other drawings as well. They are very well executed!

(I have no association with this artist. I am just sharing his work with the forum)

FWIW, they're commercially available 3D models. He's most likely using 3DSMax to edit them. Not an easy task, pretty difficult.

Thats right, and wait until it gets animated (sooo many params to handle)!!! :wacko:  ...you can do a lot with the integrated presets or even load more renderings from extern libraries and once you have the model done, you can turn it the way you want, put multiples sceneries, clouds and shades, backgrounds and so on and render it again. But I agree, still an art to get the model the way it should look! B)-_-

 

 

I love more real drawings from artists.... They are unique and not "rerenderable" in 1000+1 ways ;):P

I've wanted to get into 3D modeling to do renders like that, and try out custom ideas that can be viewed from any angle. I used to be really involved in photo editing trying out custom ideas.

Sounds great Steve! For trying out and planing custom ideas, and being able to watch your ideas from every angle, this is one of the best way! And as you mentioned, definitely not an easy task! (I worked many years as AD in a multi media company and photo editing is still one of my passions! But for 3D, I didn't had the patience to handle all these polygons, complex textures and thousands of params, so my skills in this particular discipline are not that much developed! :D)

Are you still working in photo editing and 3D today?

I first tried using Blender and programs like that, but like you, had a problem with polygons. Solid modeling is very interesting, it's more like shaping clay. Much easier to deal with, and understand the shapes. Although trying to view a 3d shape on a 2d screen still messes with my head!

I sometimes still work in photoshop, but not like I used to. I've kinda been there, done that with it. I've been photo editing cars since the late 90's. Here's a personal favorite I did probably 10 years ago. The Willys coupe is one of my favorite cars, and I wanted to hone my skills at the time.

Wow, that's a very cool design!!! Very, very nice work Steve! When I see that, I get the desire to re-design cars in Photoshop :wub::D (what I never have done that way...). This is very cool and I like how you transformed that Willys! (A great and beloved car to use as basis for a hotrod and I love it too!) Did you then build it in real?
I think (as soon as I have more time) I will try to transform and design some classic cars - you inspire me :lol:;)!
 

Yesterday evening, I edited a photo of the Riv of Kenny... I was in the mood to try something... 

 

Totally different, here my last project I did last month for a swiss rapper who produced a new CD... He wanted human opposites (poor/rich, beautiful/unsightly, old/young, ill/healthy, etc.) and wanted to express, that on the bottom of the heart, everyone is equal. It had to be some kind in a shocking way... That wasn't easy to find the right puzzle pieces in the right perspectives, but at the end, it was exactly what he wanted ^_^ 

Keep on doing such cool car designs, Steve, and have a lot of fun!
