Kenny Roberts Yamaha



A 2 minute and 55 second render...I think this is about 8-10 times faster than the original render.
The Yamaha from 2010 and several other part attempts...
Thank god for Cinema4D downwards compatibility



Reflections lo-poly cars. Yay!

The wonderful world of 3D max. I didn't know a thing about it when I started. I now about about the same as then. Its was a clunky old thing. It might have got better but there are so many better apps out there IMHO. I seem to recall that for PS2 the cars that weren't central attractions to the scene where 1500 polys max. The final item consisted of half a model - the programmers generated the other half (saved on polys) and just one wheel. Most of the models ended up with 3 variants or levels of crash damage.

















Retro time...

All the stuff I'd forgotten about with a vaguely 3D theme will appear here.


Created with Stratavision3D on Amiga? I guess in 1993
















Here's a few textures for same. All with that tell-tale panel design Lastly the Pan-Am logo long since gone but was a genuine carrier

Ford and VW screen grabs...


For those that still don't believe I actually modelled these things and that they just appeared on my desktop one day....




I pulled the text from this 1960's magazine advert and applied it to my own camper but this time in blue....


Some of the textures and logos used on the car. Note most of the logos were created by hand in illustrator. Happy days indeed. 


hires Earth and moon...


There are some very high resolution NASA images freely available for download and a few years ago I tried to crush cinema4D and my computer by applying 11000 pixel images to a sphere and trying to replicate a typical orbiter view...done in 2011.




And followed up with the moon...
