So, three months of modeling, a couple of weeks spent developing materials and lighting, plus 3 hours of rendering in 1080p at 1250 samples, and voila
! The final render of the awesomely-designed 2012 Audi A5 Coupe
...now, I say 2012, but there are a few details that I had to improvise. Namely the headlights. Why? Well, seems that there are no picture of the A5 across the entire internet that stay consistent. Even the pictures from the Audi website all differed slightly...but meh, at least it looks like an A5, right?
I'm still working on a few other shots, and I'll also be cleaning it up a bit - I'm thinking of maybe selling the model over on 3DExport, which I found through Twitter (their base royalty rates are 50% better than TurboSquid's)
Anyway, most of this was created in Blender 2.62, but while developing the materials I finally switched to 2.63a
Also, all the photo-editing and stuff was done in GIMP 2.8.
