Composition

I decided to take the Mustang out of the studio and get him on the road - after all, that's where such a beauty should be! First of all, I rendered the image with the same settings as before - which did not work too well, as you can see (Fig.22). So I created an Ambient Occlusion pass (AO) to reinforce the corners and the spaces between elements (Fig.23). I took these two images into Photoshop, and with some adjustments of the brightness, contrast, layer blending mode and so on, I finally got a pleasing result (Fig.24).

Conclusion

I hope that with this simple "making of" I have been able to answer some questions about this type of render. It's up to each individual artist to figure out how to tweak the V-Ray settings to their liking - it is a powerful tool that is completely in the hands of willing and talented artists to get the best use out of it.

I would like to thank 3DCreative magazine for this opportunity to discuss a little about my work and experience with 3D. Please feel free to send any questions and/or comments to by email, or through my blog. Thanks for reading!

Really excellent work. I have been a graphic and industrial designer for 40 years and know how much talent it took to do this. Excellent!

there are a few issues with the shapes and curves here and there.. like the wheel arches.
