Convertible Render
#1
Started on the 'vert the other night. Here's what I've got so far. It wasn't too bad, I basically cut the roof off the coupe, moved some stuff around, and made a boot for the top. Next is the hard part...detailed interior!
For those of you who have cared enough to follow my CG rendering threads, my ultimate plan is to make all the parts for each model in one file, spoilers, grilles, hoods, etc... so that any time I want I can recreate any model from '71-'73. I also have to make details like door handles, drip rails, side parking lights, etc... which were left off of my original on purpose because I plan to shave all that stuff on my real car, which I'm going out in the garage to work on as soon as I'm done typing Big Grin

Aaaawwww! Thank you!

That is really cool. I never understood how that rendering stuff works but you seem to know what you are doing. The last rendering of Obsidian looked really good!

Thanks guys! There are definitely some minor flaws in it, but I'm getting the hang of it more every time I play with it and I keep tweaking little stuff to help the flaws look less noticeable. I started the interior and I'll try to post some pics tonight of what I have so far.

Reference shots are always helpful. I have a few already, and for the moment I think I can work with why I've got, but if I need any specifics I'll let ya know Smile
Thanks!
