Dilemma#1,2,3 and 4
« on: July 08, 2012, 12:06:11 am »
This whole rendering contest and this fantastic model by Javier, http://grabcad.com/library/engine-ford-427, got me thinking about my good old van and how I always wanted to stuff a big old V-8 in it.  The scenes depict my vantage point, sitting in my plastic patio chair staring endlessly at them trying to figure out how to put the two together.  Especially how to get that shifter to connect to the steering column!

I pulled in the files into Rhino as a .stp file, meshed them to get the sizes down and layered the whole thing.  I did quite a bit of post processing in Photoshop putting in labels, adding fake suspension bits, background elements, and desaturating  the Keyshot outputs that came out a little bit too hot.

Hope you enjoy! You are all doing some really great stuff!

Just thought I'd add a couple more Engine only shots. I discovered the golf ball texture and thought I'd use it for a flooring material.  I was going for the jewelry store-like lighting at the Blackhawk Auto Museum.  Except for the oil filter labeling, these are straight out of Keyshot.
