I wanted to create something different that what I usually post, I had this Porsche model from a previous freelance work I did so instead of creating another car render I wanted my render to have a nicer look, So why not have more duplicates cause you cannot never have enough Porsche !
For artist look I decided to make 2 sides of this render, As for my ref i liked the back one more ! but hey its in high res and would be just perfect as WALLPAPER for your phone ! And if you used it please make sure to post your screenshot in the comment section i would give you some shoutout ♥️ 🙌
I started by shading the car, And once all was ready I exported ( Arnold Scene Source ) which everyone knows it as .ASS , ASS is Arnold proxy in case you have a heavy object, And you want to keep your scene light and clean you can use these ASS proxies and duplicate them everywhere you want around the scene without worrying about scene being heavy or cause you any issue during render time, As the camera only render's what it sees in the viewport so it is very efficient if you want to cut down your render time and keep your scene light and clean !
After I was done with my scene layout, I created my light setup, I used 3 area lights to give a softbox lighting feel, Did not want to create any strong contrast between lights and shadows
After that I set up my camera and positioned it to focus on one car in the middle, And to make it more special I added a red light underneath the original car
I did not render many AOV's for this scene, I used few passes to give me more control over the lighting and mainly to focus on the highlights and specular.
I started with the DIFFUSE pass
Then with the In Direct pass it helped me control of the fill lighting values
And the direct pass to control the feel of the Key lighting
Coase was the secondary highlight channel I added to get extra details in specular values
And my fav pass Specular for overall highlights, I made sure to keep the highlights color in gold color for stylized look .
For something extra I created another version with more Gold feel and can be used as a wallpaper for your phone as well :)
