We're back with another entry in our weekly community project, where we post a render or animation created by a member of the Cgtuts+ community, and ask you to provide feedback and constructive criticism on their work. It’s a great way to learn more about the intricacies of computer graphics, express your viewpoint, and have your own content critiqued by your fellow artists!

Quick Ground Rules

  • Be nice! We’ve deliberately chosen work that isn’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
  • Feel free to offer any type of advice on – Modeling, Texturing, Materials, Lighting, Rendering, Composition, etc.
  • You can also link to another render that you feel offers a great example of this type of content done exceptionally well.

So let's get to it, here's this week's entry created by Paul Wright!

A Little Background

Here is a render of a 1957 Chevy Black Widow that I created as part of a larger work in the final year of my degree. I was also featured in the January 2013 edition of Animation Carnival Magazine. Its the first time I have really modeled a vehicle and there are a couple of little issues with it, but I'd like to hear what others think about it, and what could have been done better.

I originally modeled the tire tread which looked really nice but added about 100,000 polys to the model which really slowed down the scene and added little to the render, so I switched to a bump map instead.

Also be sure to check out more of Paul's work on his Website!
