Sunbeam 8 by Marian87 Sunbeam 8 by Marian87
Many months have passed and it's time again to show some progress on my Sunbeam car.
I've smoothed out the back removing that spoiler, plus a few tweaks here in there and I've added panel lines and a few details.

Can you help me with something?

I notice you used subdivide surfacing on this car. When I do the same thing to my car, it makes it really ugly and amatuer. I was wondering if you could help me with that.

Well Sketchup has a free version too. You can give it a try, but the smoothing plugin is not free.
Maybe you can apply some of the things I showed in the tutorial in blender. Things like double line the edges you want to be crisp.

God that looks amazing in red! Is there any way this CAN be built?

Think it would look fantastic in black with white racing stripes

....I wouldn't know to whom should I address and what to say to them...
"Hello I'm just a guy with a design that wants you to pour a lot of your money into and make my dream come true. Thanks" :P

I don't think there are many options right now....cars need too darn much money to be built and the economy sucks. :(

Ah yes - but hey, try TVR, Morgan, or even the big guns....well just giving you hope because of the creativity here.

And yes,...the global recession - but hey this is when creativity shines through the darkness!

Tvr has it's own problems now and the design doesn't fit the design language of neither TVR nor Morgan. Most of the big companies are mostly interested in making money and already have designs planned, they wouldn't even notice me.

Sorry if i'm being too negative here but with the amount of awesome designs out there many better than mine, I never heard of a big company actually taking one of those designs and building it. At best they hire the designer or have competitions.

If I were more ambitious maybe I would try to become the next Koenigsegg....but it's hopeless :(

Well, keep going sir, keep coming up with them dream motors.

A company may not be inspired but who knows, someone with more money than sense may see it - and who knows....;)
