"Canada is like a loft apartment, over a really great party." - Robin Williams

Happy Canada day to my friends and family in the true north. I decided to render a coupe version of McLaren Canada's 570S Convertable MSO commission. 570S model by RexFu with the HDRI & Backplate set by AutomotiveCGI/CGI Plates.
I'll have some more breakdown shots and motion shots using just the HDRI + Corona dome map to add later this evening.

3DS Max 2020 & Corona 4.0 with Lightroom used for the quick post work

Perfect place to showcase your new wheels - in the middle of icy public road, next to the blind turn ;]

Nice renderings!

Thanks Romullus. Nothing quite says "Canada" like a snowy environment, even if that environment was actually photographed just outside Atlanta, Georgia.

If I may - the car looks a bit too clean given that it has just been driving that road full of snowy dirty slurry :-)

I know, but at the same time if I'd have made it dirtier some people would wonder why I would pose and photograph a dirty vehicle for glamour shots. I also wasn't entirely comfortable in my ability to make the dirt look real enough no to be distracting so I went for a small subtle amount behind each tyre.

Some quick motion shots. I used Photoshop path blue to add motion blur to the HDRI map and then plugged it into the Corona bitmap with the dome setting enabled. Difficult to match the real world principles of motion blur which would be much less than shown in areas that are further away from the camera but probably good enough for quick images.

Good job compositing it in to the environment. But as a Canadian.... you would never find someone driving a car like that in those conditions. Especially with those tires :D

Holy red carbon Batman!

Nice choice with the snowy background as these kinds of cars are rarely seen in those kinds of conditions. The only thing that jumps out the wrong way for me is the strong red light on the road behind the car, especially on the front angle shot where the brake lights aren't even visible in the frame. It just looks too strong for such a bright scene.
