Stirling: Automobile Rendering
It's been almost 2 years since we last took Stirling out for a drive, and things with RenderMan have moved from strength to strength.
There have been massive shifts in workflows and improvements in speed and funciotnality.
This series of tutorials will lead you through the basics of RenderMan 21, building knowledge and skills through practical exercises, and at a gradual pace. Keep an eye out as there will be updates and new tutorials in the coming weeks and months.
Stirling hasn't been idle either, he's decided to take to hit the racing circuit and had a fetching new paint job.
- Stirling is a car full of character and must be shown in a compelling manner.
- With a rich heritage of British automotive design, strong lines and obvious physicality he embodies the style and danger of a “Bond" or “Carter" character.
- “Exquisitely tailored, but deadly."
- The images should be as photo-real as practicable.
- Techniques and visual language of of high end automobile photographers will be employed in order to enhance the appeal of the image set.
Inspired by examples from Tim Scott.
