These are some early ones from XSI, rendered to see how the smoothing is. No shading work has been done at this point.
I used reflection on the body which helps to reveal smoothing related issues.
Still not done though. I had been tweaking the geometry for improved rendering, but noticed the dark areas on the sides of the front window. There are
still some geometry issues left to work with.
These renders are reminders of a very bad time. I had put a large amount of time in my modo scenes and they were rather evolved. One day distaster struck and the harddrive with the work on died. I was able to retrieve some of it, but unfortunately most of the data was too old. I am however a very smart guy, and every smart guy knows to make backups. I use an entirely different drive for this purpose but guess what: it too died the very same day. Talk about irony!
