How to start an amazing car rendering

All car design students and designers love supercars (me too) and we all tried and try to illustrate them during our free time for own pleasure or for work (people that work for Ferrari or Maclaren or Porsche...).

Lately in Facebook appeared several new supercars illustrations and renderings and I decided to write a little hub about it. Those great renderings are work of an Azerbaijanian designer named Samir Sadikhov (Sasha's friend) and today I'll try to axplain the strong points of such beautiful art work.

First of all lets look at the pictures because they are great! Take your time...after the pics my comments.

Once again brilliant work by designer Samir.

Why are those renderings so hot?

Here few considerations that can help you when you try to make one hopefully hot, too!

- The subject is really cool, hot, and its design is really beautiful!

- Composition on page perfect, dynamic, a little exaggerated to make the whole thing dramatic.

- Use of Pespective positively forced to reinforce the dramatic effect and help the subject to stand out

-Focal Point just perfect, we see the car and can admire its shape + graphics + details because the focal point is well mastered thanks to colors, contrast and perspective. Our eyes go on the car because they (the eyes) are driven over there.

-Use of Photoshop well done with no overwork.

-Use of colors and contrast well balanced to give good value to the composition, warm tones and cool tones are correctly placed and the contrast sometime very high help us to appreciate the depth of the composition giving to it the 3D effect.

-Details are great! They help us to give realism in our head.

Those renderings are really well done!

Hi Luciano ,

I have one question here, is 3d modelling considered as a requirement for an automotive designer?

Dear Aizat 3D virtual modeling and manual modeling are important for a design student training. However in the real design everyday world you will find Studios that ask designers to make their own model proposal...and Studios where thi is not permitted because of model makers...
