1971 Dodge Dart

Studio Shot

Wanted to model a car that not many people have modeled before. I love the lines of this car, and more than that, I love the power that comes under the hood. Long live MOPAR!

NURBS to Poly's.
Modeled in Maya 2010 and ZBrush 4. Rendered in MentalRay.

Modeling time: 4 weeks

you've pull out wheels nicely, i like the tyres :)
i am not sure about the headlights, and the gap between the door and the body could be a bit wider, but the rest looks awesome!

Thanks for the kind words, and the honest comments! I truly appreciate them. =D
Yep, the headlights have been one of those things that I've had trouble getting to look right. As far as the body panel gaps, you are absolutely correct. I own this same car and they're indeed wider. But my decision for making them narrower, and cleaner was more of an aesthetic clean-up on my part; an artistic liberty if you will. I love my old muscle cars, but one thing I really dislike about them is the mile wide, and uneven gaps that came with them stamped from the factory. Actually there's a lot of chrome, and trim pieces that I deleted from this car. I wanted to give it a more modern look by cleaning it up. :)

My favorite render of this car. Everything really looks great here. Pretty close to looking real. The closest headlight looks odd.
