In this image I wanted to represent the beauty that, in my opinion, all classic cars have. I have always been attracted by the cars of the early 20th century because of their beauty and the simplicity of their design - they are definitely the jewels of the automotive industry! This is why I decided to create a 3D image of the Mercedes GP 1908. This particular model is one of the first models of the motor world, and also one of the best cars ever made!
When designing, I like to look at every detail, and I aim to give my images a unique and professional quality. The phase of collecting information about the model is very important to me – reference photos, blueprints, history and anything relevant is necessary in order to make a good, deserving image and to get the correct measurements and proportions. Having said that, I also always take some artistic licence when creating my artwork, to create my own style and make the image as interesting as possible.
This design was created using Avid Softimage XSI 6.5. Modelling was simple because I used polygonal modelling; starting from primitives, or from a view, I created the profile and then made extrusions, adding polygons and creating edges, and so on (Fig.01).
