03 Concept Car - Posters by sandrodcpereira 03 Concept Car - Posters by sandrodcpereira
Last year at school we were asked to choose a theme for a project that would last the whole year.
The project I came up with consisted of somethings that I was familiar with, and some things that I had never done before:

- First of all, design a concept car of my own. Not something too flashy and futuristic, but a car that I would like to be seen in, and most important, a car that would be believable. A car that could actually exist.
- Second, make a 3D model of the car. While it wasn't my first time making a 3D model, it was my first try at making a car using 3D Studo Max.
- Third, and since I love graphic design, design promotional posters for the car. This consisted of creating a name, making a logotype, and creating the actual posters for the car.
- Fourth, create two videos using the 3D model of the car: one promotional video, and a more funny and personal one. Now this was something I had never tried before and it was a great experience, and even though it was a hard task for one person only, I can say that they came out pretty well.

(Some minor steps were obviously left out of the list; things like creating the scenes for the videos)


It was a great experience, and very rewarding; especially considering I got the highest grade possible. :D


These are the actual posters.

I wanted to make something light and colorful, but that wouldn't take the attention away from the car. Each of the posters were made at the gigantic resolution of 4960x3508.
The renders took quite some time, but the result was great when printed. :)
Here is a little detail at the original resolution.

the model itself is quite edgy ... maybe you can round it up a little ... but the ideas for the posters are good

Thanks for the comment! ;)

It looks like that because it's a low-polygon model. I wanted to go with a high-polygon one at first, but the busy schedule made me decide against it because it's much more time consuming and I was not as familiar with high-poly modeling as I was with low-poly.

After finishing and presenting the project, I have actually started a high-polygon version, but never got to finish it.

You can have any color you want to! I actually did a color chart with tons of colors, but haven't submitted it. Dunno if you've seen it already, but you can check here for a black version of the car.

Wow. That's awesome. 3D graphics design has always been a thing that I think is interesting, but I've never gotten into it- I just like looking at other people's stuff! :D

Thanks for the kind comment!

You really should consider learning 3D modeling. Not only is a nice way to bring your designs to life, the learning process is a great experience, though lengthy. :nod:

Thanks! I know it's a huge at full resolution, but I wanted all the little details to be visible, I was hoping the longer time to load was worth it.

Thank you very much, I'm very glad you like it. I think you got something wrong, though. The videos (which I didn't show) were my first, not the model.

It was still the first time I modeled a car designed by myself, and it was my fourth model, if I remember correctly.

As for the model quality, I see most people would prefer a high polygon model. I did this as a low polygon due to the somewhat short amount of time I had left. Still, after the deadline was over and the project presented and evaluated, I began a high polygon version of the car, which I still haven't finished because of computer problems. The issues with the computer seem fixed, so when I have the time I'll definitely go back and finish it. :nod:
