Great Tutorial Renzsu.

I have seen the Scott Robertson DVD and this just helps out even more in understanding the process as I am only trying to start using the program for renderings. Thanks for the tutorial!

Thanks guy, a buddy of mine recently used the tutorial just to learn how to use paths and then made some line drawing for a newspaper ad :) So just to show you don't necessarily need to use this to create bikes ;)

Great tutorial! Followed it almost to the letter, and this was my result:

I used the same blue as you did because I liked the color, and as a tribute. ;)

I'm very pleased with the results these techniques give me.

However, the chrome part took ages to get somewhat right, but I still ain't 100% happy with them. C&C appreciated.

Hi Splash, glad that you enjoyed it, and that's a pretty result! To make the render more convincing, I would try and add some kind of seat inside the cockpit, but keep it relatively simple (just dark grey with some weak highlights on top). Also there is something funny going on with your shadows. Looking at the engine, it almost seems it is touching the ground when I look at its location and the location of the shadow underneath the nose.. So, try and keep the shadow edge underneath the engine closer to the edge of the engine.. also make the black of the shadow under the nose weaker, there is more room between the nose and the ground, so the shadow is not so strong as if it would be directly above the ground.

About the chrome, you could add a solid black line running across the upper halve, which would mean that your aircraft is illuminated by two light panels with a gap between them (Which gives that black reflected line). You then of course also have to erase that same line from the highlights in your cockpit and blue body panels as they reflect the same lights.

Last point, maybe you can slightly erase a bit of the top of the reflection on the cockpit, so that it becomes more of a gradient instead of a solid area of white.. might make the cockpit a bit less flat.

Nice work, good to see some result at last :) !
