Good job, jaguar42l!

The detailing is great on the last one, that mustve been a lot of work to figure out (unless you own the car of course ;)  )

One thing that does stand out is that the smoothing on the panels doesn't come out too well. I can't judge on the third one, it's all black so hard to make out, but the first two cars dont seem too smooth. This is probably because it is a mesh without subdivisions. If you want to improve the jagged edges and smooth the car out, have a look at subdivision modeling.

Also, the environment takes a bit away from the models. I would suggest either putting them in a studio environment or make a more detailed environment than just a few panels with photo's on them.

Good work though, especially the third car is impressive.

Great work, nice pair of rare Lamborghinis and lovely E Type.  I agree with $imon re the surface subdivision and seeing them in a studio environment.  The detailing on the Jag is very good, I'd love to see a clay render.  The Lambos appear to be simpler, something like what might be used in a game, is this the plan?  I'd also work on the duco (paint work), it appears a bit flat.  Car duco is a particularly difficult thing to get right - too shiny and it looks like plastic, too dull and it looks sand-blasted - there are some tutorials about that might help.  The Espada at least doesn't appear to have a modelled interior, only inside shots rendered on the glass (or is that a too-high refractive index on the glass material warping the perspective?).  I'd love to see the Espada in particular brought up to a high level of detail, such a beautiful and rare vehicle deserves it!  Excellent work, I'd love to see more.

Hello all,

The lambos are less detailed than the jag (I own this one, it's from 1966). I will try subdivision, but I'am not sure my old PC will support it!
