The idea came from my desire to create a 3D work that would stress my skills and the experiences I had so far in the field of photo-realistic three-dimensional graphics.
I think a F1 car is a mix between a car and an airplane, with all the difficulties of modeling that these analogies involve.
So I choose a F1, the Ferrari F2007 version, for the amount of artwork and photographs that I've found: for such an object, photographic references are never too many.
For the model, I set myself two objectives:
-cinema quality visual performance
-ability to sustain close-up views while maintaining top photorealism.
In this work, the main source of technical information on the F2007 was the text of Giorgio Piola "Formula 1 - Technical Analysis 2007/2008", Giorgio Nada Editore. I can proudly say that the F2007 in these images has no post processing. The only exceptions are:
-backgrounds in the images of the F2007 in the studio set (blending)
-image inside the cockpit (color correction)
What you see is the result of a long work, carried out in my spare time.
It had a strict rule: make the most of every element and treat every detail without compromise.
