Introduction

This image was based on the following idea: A carpenter wishes to give his son a gift and the only thing he knows for certain is that he wants the gift to be new. Finally he comes up with the idea of a wooden car.

This image took two months to make. Over this time, I was able to establish a model library of tools and equipment which would typically be present in a workshop. In this Making Of, I will discuss all the stages of this project, without going into the creation process in too much detail. If you'd like more specific details, such as how I did the cars, then you can see this old tutorial: Z4 Unleashed

References

Here are some of pictures that I used as references and which I found on the Internet (Fig.01).

Modelling

Although you will find a lot of modelling in this image, most of it was done by the traditional method of using editable polys, which always begin with a plane or cylinder. Using this simple method, I was able to build up a complete model library of tools (as mentioned before). Here are some of the models from my library (Fig.02 - Fig.05).

After finishing all the modelling on the tool library, I established the environment of the carpenter's workshop (Fig.06).

To complete the modelling process, I then added in all the equipment and tools to the workshop (Fig.07).
