Do more cars, and I'll get them all on the site, very very nice work.
Jan 15 2005, 06:53 AM
ImaPhatPimp - I plan to do atleast 2 more cars (Remington&one other) I did the SlamVan first because I was keen to do plenty of variations. It would be cool to go onto the front page. The SlamVan is the only one getting hydraulics, so the other 2 should take a lot less time. I'll PM you once it's all ready to go up.
Vendetta - thanks for sorting the big picture, wasn't sure if I should link it or what.
JStormz - I'm looking at doing something with the front, because I don't like it the way it is.
Should be an update within the next 24hrs, I'm completely re-doing the hydrualics.
here's another flame paintjob, it was messed up on the front, hence the render angle. I'll get this one sorted out for the next update.
Jan 15 2005, 07:01 AM
That ones the best so far.
The black w/flames work together well
Jan 15 2005, 09:18 AM
cool this topic should be pinned for 3d car models.
Jan 15 2005, 03:03 PM
if their are more made.

Delicious. I like the orange/red flame'd one the best so far. Those wheels are like, badass. Keep up the über work.
Jan 15 2005, 07:19 PM
i like the rims too
Jan 15 2005, 09:52 PM
I've got some more pics for ya.
I've been having some trouble with my files, I think it's starting to push the computer a little too hard. The hydraulics is causing me so much trouble, I've given up for a few days. So I did some new paint jobs, and fixed some old ones.
Due to the Hydrualics problems, I'm going to have to push back the animations and the Monster Truck version.
Here's the first one, the CSR SlamVan, I was messing around, and the logo was the most suitable. I don't like CSR, but thought it would look cool on the SlamVan.
Here's the white and blue flames version... the blue bits on the wheels was a mistake.
Here's the fixed orange flames one,
and here's a large render, Click Here
Jan 15 2005, 10:00 PM
that last one with the chrome grill is bad ass, good job.
Jan 15 2005, 11:59 PM
try make a pic of the slamvan doing a wheelspin on the spot!
you know, smoke evrywhere (almost), basically, nice smoke effects from the wheelspin and exhuast...
EDIT: btw those pic's are top-stuff!!!!
Jan 16 2005, 11:14 AM
Mechanicalsitic - Smoke is really hard, to do properly. Particle effects are easy enough, but it would take hours and hours, and I'd prefer to spend that time working on getting an animation done.
Good idea though, I'd love to get it doing a burnout, especially for an animation. Maybe in the future, I'll give it a go.
Jan 16 2005, 02:32 PM
I'm interested to see what people think, did I capture the essence of the SlamVan? I think it's missing something, I can't quite put my finger on it. Anyway, I'll be spending more time on this over the next week or 2 so check back here for updates.
its so cool man but i am playing it now and i have a slamvan
i think the windows where the driver/passenger sits that whole area needs to come up just slighty higher than the bonnet
10/10 though man I wudnt change it
Jan 16 2005, 07:02 PM
Got a little side tracked actually playing GTA for a change. God those Savannas are bricks!! but that soft-top sure does look nice.
Finished the Hydaulics, they look a tad weird from this angle. I'm trying to keep them in the dark as much as possible, they're far from perfect.

Holy sweet mother of Jesus
Jan 16 2005, 07:36 PM
the green one is ****ing lush
Jan 16 2005, 07:41 PM
That last picture makes me want a real slamvan.
i want one now....
very nice man.
Jan 16 2005, 08:49 PM
i was scrolling through thesesites and looking at these CG/3d artworks
and, i was wondering if u have made other stuff, like not even SA related? (on other sites)
btw: this type of art is great for wallpapers on desktops....
Jan 16 2005, 09:28 PM
Thanks for all the kind words... This is actually the best work I've ever done, take GTA to motivate me into doing this. I've done bits and pieces in 3D before, but I'm mainly a Motion Graphics - Designer.
Cars, women, and robots, are the 3 most common 3d modelled stuff. So if you surf you'll find some AMAZING 3D cars that put me to shame
Each new render becomes my Wallpaper, I was going to stick to only posting small pics, but if I'm rendering them large for me, I might aswell share.
I've just figured out how to add "FLEKS" to the paint. So check back for an update within the next hour or so.
Jan 16 2005, 11:44 PM
OK, I was messing around with adding fleks to the paintwork...
Here's the testHere's the RENDER
Still needs some work, but all the renders from now on will have fleks in the paintwork
Jan 16 2005, 11:54 PM
This is just amazing! Keep it up, great job!
Jan 16 2005, 11:59 PM
Jan 17 2005, 08:27 AM
Man that is soooo awesome, 10/10...... I like the one thats orange with orange flames
EDIT: I just realised how graphic the tyres are especially on the green one....nice stuff
Jan 19 2005, 01:27 AM
you should try to make one with a pearlessence paint job, that would be cool.
Jan 19 2005, 02:19 AM
As you can see I'm all about spinners. Therefore I think that'd be awesome. I don't know how hard or easy that is but I just think it'd add another element to it.
I'm also all about flecked chameleon paint. I bought a bucket of that heat sensitive stuff and made everything I had chameleon
. On San Andreas I found a way to make the Blade chameleon and have chameleon flames only visible from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and believe me it looks awesome. I'd imagine chameleon fleck paint to be pushing it or extremely time-consuming, but I don't know for sure. Would it be?
Gettin better with each one, I especially like the SuperSlammedVan
Edit: Got to thinking about the spinners, I think it might take away from the pic as a whole if it weren't perfect, but that's just me.
Jan 19 2005, 04:23 AM
I can do pearlescent/chameleon paintjobs pretty easy. I've done a few, but it doesn't quite look right. I want to do a paintjob, with normal body-paint and pearlescent Flames, where the flames are only visible from certain angles.
If you want to post some sample pictures u think r cool, go for it, or PM me with links.
I'll have a play.
regarding spinners.... I think they're ugly. I've only seen 2 designs I liked, I reckon there are way more normal wheel designs that look vastly superior than the spinning counterparts. I'll have another search, try and find some I like.
If you want to post some sample pictures u think r cool, go for it, or PM me with links.
We'll see, stay posted.
(I've started the Remington)

|(I've started the Remington)|
Fucking sweet, give it a nice paint job
Jan 19 2005, 04:31 AM
don't do spinners they overrated and ugly
Jan 19 2005, 04:38 AM
I wish i was talented enough to do 3d modeling.
Jan 19 2005, 04:57 AM
Jan 19 2005, 05:35 AM
Dude, I'm speechless, and yeah, don't do spinners...
Not on a Remington.
Jan 19 2005, 06:45 AM
Wow. Your work is absolutely amazing. I'd really like to see some of the other stuff you've done. Do you have a website with some more of your work?
Also, I noticed on one of the renders a page or so back of the slamvan on its back wheels, with the front up in the air, that the front left tire (when your looking at it) doesnt have a rim on it.
EDIT: This one
Jan 19 2005, 07:34 AM
Yeah it does its in the shade
Edit: like the specks
Jan 19 2005, 06:47 PM
- There's little talent involved in 3D, it's been a hell of a lot of work to get to this point. You've got plenty of time to pick it up. There's so much to learn, for free online. JStormz
- I will do some tests by taking pictures and photoshopping wheels onto both the Remington & SlamVan. Then I'll decide which ones to model. Thanks for the pic. GFX
- This is the best work I've ever done in 3D, so I don't have any other cool stuff to see. Oh and yeah that Tire is in shade. I was trying to keep the underside of the car as dark as possible, because it's not modelled very well stjimmy
- If I do - do spinners - they will be on the SlamVan. They wouldn't suit the remington. I agree spinners are way over rated, but I do think the best designs have yet to come out. There are WIRE SPINNERS, that I'm looking at creating for the SlamVan, whether I post them or not, depends on how well they turns out.Everyone
I should have a SlamVan update today (14 hours- from this post),
SlamVan > Flames with fleks: (800x600)
- Yellow-Red on Black
- Orange on Orange
- Green on Green
SlamVan > Pearlecent paint job tests (+fleks) :(800x600)
-Yellow to Pink
-Pearlecent Flames test
SlamVan > Wallpaper: (1280-wide)
Depends on how well the above renders turn out. I'll render the best one bigger.
Remington - Don't expect much -only done the Front+Sides- but I will post 1 pic
Note - I'm still trying to figure out how to present the FINAL renders. I am consdering presenting the SlamVan and the Remington as limited edition SAN ANDREAS toys/models. Do a box for them, and render them beside their boxes. It's a nice mix of 3D, Design, packaging, and product rendering/photography.
Jan 20 2005, 01:08 AM
Sounds cool, can't wait till the next update
Big Fat Negro
Jan 20 2005, 02:29 AM
When you said some people put you to shame, did you mean people like... This?
Jan 20 2005, 03:48 AM
No, I meant people like this...
and defienitly this
These people have too much time on their hands
Jan 20 2005, 03:53 AM
Yeah I have kinda realized spinners aren't all they are cracked up to be, since getting NFSU2 working again.
Edit: Yeah those people have too much free time.
I'm assuming that incorporating that awesome of graphics into a game takes tons of time right? Of course I'm talking about Gran Turismo 4
Spinners on a Remington....no thanks. Wire spinners on a Slamvan...sounds promising.
Jan 20 2005, 06:36 AM
Holy crap!!!.......them ones are insane
Jan 20 2005, 07:07 AM
yeah NFU-2, I had to have one car with spinners to get the extra star ratings, but I never had spinners on my pride and joy. I just prefered normal wheels... Like I said, I think the best spinners designs haven't come out yet.
Been a long day, computers been messing up, renders have taken longer to setup, so this isn't all I promised. I'll give you guys a partial Remington pic another day. The last big render was taking too long, so I had to cancel it. I'll render it out tomorrow hopefully.
Ok, here we go...
The LSPD SlamVan, I mentioned ages ago.... it was just for kicks.
Now the Green Pearl/chameleon
Have I posted a pic of what the badge looks like?
Jan 20 2005, 07:55 AM
You have really outdone yourself once again.
yup, all of these are going up as my wallpapers tonight
I really love the green pearl/flames
The LSPD one would be much better if the roof lights were made to look slightly transparent or maybe better lighting effects, im not sure but it the roof lights look rather unnatural.
The pearl/chameleon experiment one is Sexeh
keep up the kickass job
Jan 20 2005, 08:43 AM
Nice job, id hate to imagine the vertices in that. what lighting are you using?
Jan 20 2005, 09:08 AM
The cop and pearlescent one's look sweet but I would like to see a cop one with more detail.
Jan 20 2005, 09:18 AM
The cop one was me just messing around, I don't want to spend ages making the lights look right and fixing everything else.
The lighting is a single spotlight, and some Global Illumanation, using mental rays Final Gather thingy.
Jan 20 2005, 11:13 PM
that's awesome... the LSPD one is funny........ good job with the pearl
Jan 20 2005, 11:41 PM
Aaah, flecked chameleon flames. I'm in heaven
And the no flecked one is awesome too. They're all awesome.
Why the different wheels on the skyview of the green one? I think they're better but maybe that's just me, it fits in the whole showy look of it.
Jan 21 2005, 12:29 AM
I've got 4 different sets of wheels attached to the model on different layers. I accidently left them on that one. I'll do some new, more detailed, wheels later on.
Jan 21 2005, 12:42 AM
haha, a police slamvan.
The rims on the green pearl slamvan look nice.
Jan 22 2005, 09:52 PM
made you guys a new desktop/large render.
I made a new set of rims, they don't entirely suit the SlamVan, but I love them, and I can now use them on any car I want. The TIRE TREAD is now modelled, not just a bump-map (texture).
Brightness has been increased so u can see the rubber. Note the CrossDrilled Brake discs. (I think they might be on the wrong way round)
First one (thrown together, SLAMVAN txt supposed to match GTA:SA... when u jump in a car the name comes up, green with black outline) >> 1400px wide << >> 1280px wide <<
Second one (Better design) >> 1280px wide <<
I've started the SlamVan>Monster Truck, I'll post the TIRES when i get them finished, they look pretty cool. Having some trouble making the SlamVans Wheel Archs big enough.
