    Low Poly Car Chase

    Hello all,

    I've been working on a few projects for my portfolio and my most recent project challenged me to create a gif a day based on car chase clichés:
















    Unfortunately, the gifs wont show up here , so you'll have go here to see the full project.

    Any tips for improvement would be greatly appreciated

    I've got a cliche for you. A lot of chase scenes have been shot in San Francisco and most of them have a shot where the car gets airborne as it goes over the hills. Here are a couple of stills...

    Brilliant work Duncang6! Loving the whole minimalist/geometric/low-poly styles that have been big at the moment and yours are no execption! Just wondering was this rendered in blender cycles or an external renderer? (I only ask as I have been struggling to create anything looking this nice in cycles!)
    Thanks

    Thanks for the comments

    Steve S: I actually had a go at creating a San Francisco scene, but I wasn't sure how to set it out. I may have another go at it though

    Hexbob:Thanks! It's all cycles with diffuse materials and bright sun lamps.

    verily I like - like combination of isometric pixel art and low poly art

    I love how it's looking, one thing though, in the gif it looks like the cars are disappearing under the edge as if there's a tunnel.

    Scozzi- thanks, the cars are actually disappearing under the edge! I tried a few things when getting the cars to disappear at the edge, but the easiest thing was just placing a separate ground layer on top of the film in the video editor.

    Love the look. Very creative.. I really like it!

    I do think it looks a bit odd that they go off screen like that.. what about adding in something to hide those transitions.. like overpasses or something?

    Thanks I'll take another look at masking the cars-the more I watch it, the weirder it looks!

    I like how in the first two there is the car going over the hill. But they also share another similarity... lol. Hope you guys see it.

    On Topic: Looks very cool! I like the style and everything.
    The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins. It always wins because it is everywhere. Walk in the midday sun and the dark is with you, attached to the soles of your feet. The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

    Ya mean the VW Bug off to the side. There's also something the first and third ones share.

    A Love Low Poly

    Not very many poeple like the low poly pictures and animations, but I think that they are cool. It shows that a CGI animation doesn't need to have amazing effects.

    I would love to see these pictures turned into an animation!

    Besides the overall cuteness of the concept, it's the combination of little things in the scenes which make it so good. The pipes sticking out of the ground is a really thoughtful, funny touch. The animation is cartoonish, but because of the nature of the design elements, it's perfectly good--in fact, it sends it over the top.

    I enjoyed this very much and it put a much-needed smile on my face this morning. Thanks! Have 5*'s. =D

    Thanks for the comments guys-I thought this thread had fallen back a few pages, so I was quite surprised to see it on the top banner! Once again, thank you for the support and the very warm reception

    These look just absolutely adorable. I can't draw or model cars to save my life but i just love those little cop cars!
    And i'm from Arizona so i especially like that last one

    Using a triangulated mesh with a gradient for a sky is absolutely genius. i love how you used that

    And those ity-bity saguaros o: <3
