Attention: The following showed works are only chosen as example for that specific mistake.
I really like the art of these users (the examples are all in my favorite gallery).
but some details just triggering me.
The following examples show you that even pros make mistakes, or work a little bit careless.
And yes i know, my works are also not perfect.
Nr. 1 Use one wheel donor for two wheels
Mitsubishi EVO X
It is nearly impossible that the wheels stay in the exactly same rotation and position.
If you watching some real car images (no renderings), you going realize that the wheels are always twisted to each other.
So please, just use for every wheel a single donor. It looks more realistic and lets the chop look like less "photoshoped".
Nr. 2 Daylight Reflections in the Night
Bmw 328i Without Spoiler
I think i dont really have to explain why there should no daytime reflections in a night scene.
OK, i did it: The car looks totally strange in the enviroment. The lights and colors of the background should be visible
at the body. I know it takes alot of time and is really difficult too creating a body which reflect night lights but its worth it!
Nr. 3 Not adjusted vinyl-layers and decals
Mitsubishi Evolution IX
This mistake happens not really often, and most times (like in this example) its difficult to see.
Layers are simply plates, but all car bodys have shapes with curves, edges and hollows. The layer have to form into
the same shape like the car body, otherwise the it looks like that the vinly/decal let the side/front or rear part are just flat and
not a 3D-body.
Nr. 4 "Lotus"-effect bodypaint
I know i know, it looks great and it is the style of some artists and that is not really a mistake.
Puddles reflecting the car and the hot asphalt steam around the car, why not?
It looks like some storm was here. But the car is dry as f*ck. That doesn't make much sense. It is possible that the car was
covered during the rain, but this situation happens so often like day without a trump tweet. ^^
But seriously, on every damn chop?!
