No, but Robertson's :(

If you're familiar with the field of concept design, you'll probably have heard of a guy named Scott Robertson (website drawthrough.com). He has produced an excellent set of tutorial dvd's for The Gnomon Workshop, one of which shows the process of rendering a futuristic bicycle.
My tutorial uses the same techniques, though perhaps my approach will differ here and there. Anyways, Scott gave me his permission to publish this tutorial, for which I'm grateful.

I think the quality of redering on your bike looks awesome.

I am really excited about this tutorial and cant wait till I have time to try it out.

But I was wincing about how to render the chrome.

Even the small brake lever on renzu's was worrying me.


Look at all that chrome work on yours! and it looks superb!

think choppers look gay though :D

Hey really good tutorial thanks :D

im trying to teach myself rendering on photoshop as it is new to me and also another skill which no doubt will be useful when I leave uni. I know the basics of photoshop already, but I have never used paths before.

Just one thing though, im having trouble with all my paths and layers, I managed to draw my first path on a new layer and fill that fine, but when I try to do the next one on a new layer photoshop doesnt like it. Am I doing this wrong?

In your tutorial you have drawn all the paths first, but did you put each shape onto its own layer? I was trying to do one at a time and colouring them as I go.

the photoshop error box pops up after I choose to 'make selection' and I cant rememebr what it says of the top of my head but it does say something about pixels and 50%.

sorry this is not really clear - I am not at home right now, I may be able to explain a bit better later if know one understands.

thanks for your time

Heya Grubb, I don't really know what you mean unfortunately, but yeah, I made all my paths (not shapes!, they are different :D ) in one paths layer. It doesn't really matter on which photoshop layer you are when you make your paths, but when you start drawing a new path, make sure you go to the paths panel and have the paths layer selected, otherwise you basically wipe out all your previously made paths.. photoshop can be very annoying in that respect!
