Notes:
Winners not always finished in the 1st place =( but their passion will always beat the difficulties. It will make them start from scratch as many times as is required, till they get to cross the finish line!
Several views of a regular motor racing scene, cockpit and exterior shots trying to transmit all the struggle, rush and drama involved in automotive sports

[COLOR="Navy"]Thanks a lot guys, I'm glad you like it. I still find this character a great asset to enhance my lighting, shading and rendering techniques. I hope we don't get tired of it, cause I'm going to include him in a new scene I'm working in.See you guys soon with more... Cheers![/COLOR]

I dont want to be rude, your work is almost perfect, but i think it is so clean, the tires needs to look used and the car needs alittle bit of oil in the glasses and in the sides, sorry, great work anyway

Modeling is fantastic Sir! But one thing that should be done is to recolor your GT40 so that it matches your drivers suit and change your gas decals also to shell like on his suit, I do know what u r going for here in your render " Drama" and STRUGGLE, like I said your models are top row!

thx Lou

Renders are really great but those tyres for one have certainly not been used on a race track, far to perfect, also the underneath of the back hatch looks too clean too.
Amazing otherwise, well done :)
