Enjoying watching Transformers series, I started a car modeling at 2014 and which is not easy as I thought. Recently I picked up the old model and added more details based on references. Also trying to test out new Mila material in Maya mental ray.
Not as texturing a comlex building, there is no extra photoshop tweaking for texture. However, you have to tweak a lot about material attribute like reflection and flake. Then, after posing my car into a image based light, It's time to play with lights and render settings. And above is the first pass for my car render with background.
