[WIP] Bugatti Brescia Type 13

Postby Rich O Brien » Sat Aug 07, 2010 11:36 pm

Here's something that has become a bit of a labour of love when i've time to model. I'm not a car model enthusiast but engineering is where my use of SU lies. This came about from a visit to a Vintage Car Show last year where this car struck a chord. So simple in design but elegant in form. A bit out of my league at €400,000 to €2,000,000 depending on condition!

It's proved difficult to source as many images as possible. At the time i thought i took enough but lesson learned there. The suspension is proving a real pain to source but its enjoyable.

Thanks Dolphus :thumb:

Would say this is 20% complete so it'll be quite some time before I get to the detail work!

Will render in the end hopefully!

Youtube is often a good source for missing details.

Here is one Vid that you might be able to fine tune your details from, and I'm sure there are plenty more.

A little update... as i'm not getting much time to spend at it :cry:

The Front suspension is proving difficult to source so some of this is artistic licence gone mad...

Rebuilt the front to up the segment count, as suggested :thumb:

Complete re-work of the wheels, front-end and suspension system. Rear suspension and cabin to complete. Weighing in at 3.37mb since raising segment count but worth it, i think?

Playing with clays, styles and studios...

Thanks for the comments...

Do plan on texturing eventually but will probably share the model to let others give it a go. Clay in my strong point :shock:

The Saga Continues....

Haven't finished the model but decided to experiment with color schemes and presentation. These first set of images are Composer output which has a certain NPR style i like...
Bugatti Brescia_2.jpg

Bugatti Brescia_3.jpg

Bugatti Brescia_4.jpg

I realised afterward that the black was the wrong option and the brass was too reflective in areas. Next up is some Twilight output, Interior+ 144 passes 1200px X 574px...
Bugatti BresciA Render Test_2.jpg

Again its early days and i've only gone with texturing en masse so far. Still enjoying the whole process as it's throws up interesting issues each time.
It's down to detailing at this stage and some tweaking here. Please feel free to add suggestions for materials, lighting etc...

looking awesome Rich.

Me thinks this would work great for a future 'Render this' challenge.

I like the black look, I'm sure it would have been a standard color back in the day.

Thanks Pete, that's appreciated. When finished it would be great to see others give it a whirl on a 'Render This'.

I'll stick it in a container when it's done ;)

yess I agree the blue looks better than black, render wise anyway, I thought the brass looked good I think it would look good it pearl/white with chrome trimmings!

Great looking model. Maybe try IBL and 'shadow catcher'.

Thanks for the comments

@notareal

i have used IBL but I'll definitely give the shadow catcher a whirl. But I've also been looking at this to see how the pro's do it. But that's way off :shock:

Why not to use some HDR studio then. I am sure zbyg's HDR studios are familiar to meny, those are available also as high res at here.
