Seen a bit of american hotrod and have had a need to design a hotrod based on a Ford 32 for a while...so while Cain gets detailed and rendered...
So - Quick form blockout - boom!
Creased the cab on the shut line. Cut the windows in. Refined the mesh.
Do you ever stop? :O
Cant wait to see more!

Lols - Course not Andy! Pullin triangles like Alan Partridge on toblarone!
So added some cuts and refined the wheel arch shape. (The mesh is broken for smoothiing atm so thats why it looks a bit mental round the door).
Great start man XDThis is going to be an awesome piece, I can just feel it!
Floating grill. :0 !
In goes a bit of a chassis. Got to fix the door and its definiately not going to smooth properly until the end (after the loops n ting). I was watching american hotrod last night, and who would have thunk it but they built a ford 32 hotrod. Bit tame for what I have planned for this though http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYJWOT5Hu5E
Onyl had 20 mins for lunch today so blocked out the wheels - sans treads. FYI - white walled with red trims!
Now with tyres.... Gone for the proper old school white walls with 5 stripes. Absoloutly lethal for racing - totally outdated - usually recuts if you get them these days...... and absoloutly georgeous!
going to be something cool keep up the good work
Great Job! I love the way this is coming out
So I have been fooling you in all the previous renders! That catchy interior for the body was nothing more than a shell modifier for render purposes! I just can't do it any more so here is a refined body - now with an interior modelled in. Just for you.....yes you!
So this is what you're doing at lunch time ... nice work my friend.
nice work, i like the way you block it,can you post some wires
Thankz - Doors (they might end up as suicide doors).
Great job I think suicide would look awesome on this!
Agreed! Moved the hinges for the ime being - And added a bench seat.
Refined the bench seat - added steering rods, refined axel, ate cheese sandwich.
bit of front suspension lovin. Added a brake disk and compression lever.
Sizing up that engine....can't wait to get modelling it
Oh man that is going to be one beast machine!
Right - beginnings of my exhaust - there is going to be a lot of chrome!
more chrome lovin -
Great model,and the car is very cute.
All beautiful things begin with a render farm !
Thanks Jeremy and Angelia -
More detail on the exhaust (inner muffler), anding caps to join it to the main body of the engine and refactored the air intake.
I really love the way you mix this wonderfull car with such amazing parts from cartoonish ones.
I can't wait to see how this badboy will look like at the end!!
more engin lovin!
I was kind of 'duah' when I first saw the engine base, its huge. Now it taking its shape and I really like what i see, specially the exhaust pipes.
Engine support ribs, sparks, connecting cables...blah blah
Numerous body tweaks, rear fueltank, fuelcap, drivebelt and cogs
Right - Venting pipes to the fuel manafold - in - cogs and drive belt with guides in place. Nuts and bolt next!
AWESOME!! keep it up man
Nuts bots, wires and ribs.....yeah....shes going to go fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks awesome, man. That's quite a beefy engine o..0
The only question is.....it it beefy enough.This project seems to be a visual representation of my new high protein training diet!
More engine - Sparks - pull clips - fuel tank and boot clips - door handle - bit of cable stuff -
Quite a productive 40 mins today - rear lights with fresnel glass and lighting element, number plates , door hinges, boot handle - have a nice weekend folks
Dude, this looks fantastic
The only thing I noticed is that the drive belt looks kinked at the point where it leaves the drive shaft. It's only a small thing though
Awesome work, man!
Hey man - Thanks - Appreciate that Yeah - the drive belt - I was kind of trying to imply the stretch from the cog - but duly noted - If it is sticking out I might play around with softening it or remioving it all together - Nice one - thanks
Couple of basic renders just for fun - back to the modelling tomorrow
I love those first renders!Are they made with mental ray or v ray?
Are you planning to texture it too or you will make a clean car at the end?
I can't wait to see more of this one!!!
oops - forgot to upload yesterday lunchtime! Just for those of you who are worried you cant see out! Oh - and I added two massive NOS bottles in a V config at the back of the engine - cos it doesn't go fast enough yet
more interior work and a few exterior details -
More interior work -
Added wingmirrors, window trim, window glass (sorry you can't see in the AO override makes it all solid of course). Just got to make the windscreen wipers, add a pipe to the fueltank, a grill on the rear boot and some final nuts and bolts - AND A MONKEY! Going to do a special TimeSplitters 4 edition for this campane ALMOST FINISHED! Sign up everyone who likes games! https://www.facebook.com/Timesplitters4PLZ
I don't know what's it gonna end like, but the model itself is pretty awesome mate!
You really did that motor but... will the driver ever be able to see where he is going with the actual size of the motor?
Where we are going.....we don't need to be able to see where we are going! Na...cheers mate:p. in all seriousness I spend all day every day modelling photorealistic stuffclosely adhering to real world reference and the like. You should once in a while just go mental.... Characterise something, invent something, redesign something or blow something up. The games industry is awesome byou quite often you have little direct design influence over what you are working on.... Liberate yourself people. Do something crazy at lunchtime!
Hahahaha, I got your point bro! I even felt a little ashamed before asking about that, actually xDI just didn't get atm what was your real goal about this lunchtime project, now it's pretty clear... but, if you don't mind:
1) How will it look like if you extend those side exhausts (those that are twisted aside the doors) along and below the doors, passing above the back wheels and turning them into plus-3 exhausts (for you to get the main idea http://www.aspecperformance.com/images/hks%20legamax.jpg) - like welded exhausts that turns into 3 only in the end.
2) What would happen to this model if you mix this current design with a little bit reference of steampunk? Like, adding some steampunk design to it, but taking off the rusty part, just having that cleaned up new-car-alike?
I don't know... just "something crazy at lunchtime" xD I know that when somethings are done, we just don't feel like renewing them so soon... but in my humble opinion, it's nice to just try new things than those which comes through your mind (: But I wouldn't be bothered if you just don't like them.
