Thanks lads ;)

here are the diffuse sheets

bearing in mind im using a reflection map for the chrime parts i.e. wheel and fuel cap, and the paint work too, plus I didnt want to grunge it up too much

The car uses diffuse, spec, normal, reflection and opacity maps

Thanks for those! I'm learning a lot from your uvs.
What were their original sizes? Surely more than 1k?

Oh and the reflection map is pinching in the last render. Like it's set to spherical instead of cylindrical (or the other way).

Wow, very nice job, both model and the texture.
I'm recently doing a lot low poly work (didn't do any for a long time, but joined a game dev here in cro recently), but I guess my idea of low poly is a bit outdated :P
Even with the poly limit set I tend to cut off a few too many polies. Am I getting old? Meh.

So 15k is considered low poly too? I assume this would be for a game closer to NFS and not GTA, so higher budget would be allowed.

Also, I thought I'm getting a hang of unwrapping, but I can see it can be done with a lot less wasted space then I get in my unwraps.
How much of these textures are from scratch? I'm guessing leather and the patternet metals are the only photos used?

PS: last render reminds me of bolts car, I wonder why :D

thanks lads :)

Garp: those are the original texture sizes, no resizing has been done.
and yeah i know about the pinching, sue me :)

horizon: yeah the only photo textures are the metal circles, the leather seat and any wood. cheers dude

Not bad, dude.
But in my opinion, the textures could be improved some more.
More dirt, details and scratches. Some metal surfaces look rather plain, the dirt doesn't look enough like dirt.
And i see also that some of the reflective surfaces have the reflection baked into the diffusemap? Why not use a reflectionmap for those areas?
And the dashboard. To avoid having the instruments get polygon-edges showing, i would've just had them "pop out" from the dashboard in one mesh. That way, the roundness of the instruments could be baked with a normalmap. And voila. No more polygon-edges. Not sure if i explain properly, but hopefully you get what i mean.
The leather looks like it has too much contrast making it look way to harsh and not so comfortable to sit on.
Did you make a lightingmap/ambient occlution map? You should try it. It usually helps bringing more depth to normalmapped details and such.

Keep it up!

nice :-) A shame it's not got more detail in the mesh though! You should do a high res version if you have time :-) -
