Hey Luis! Thanks for sending the links to the WIP, I actually found one thing I don't like.

I know many people call the car too small, but they are dead wrong, it's smaller than a camaro actually, a size it's generally confused with due to masculinity, the car is infact surprisingly femenine.

Now, that wasn't what I disliked actually, I mean, Las Vegas might have shrinked which leaves the car looking big.

But the reflection on your metal on the back part is off, not only is the edges looking abit bad on the antialising (left part, two dots) but the metal material itself looks pixelated. Now that wouldn't make it unrealistic, but it's reflecting alot of colors which I can't see on any of the other metal parts on the car in the back which leaves me to think it has been scaled so the proportions in x and y isn't what they appear to be.


But man I wish I were you.


Ur amazing br0.
