Learning tons here and it Looks good Josh, I like the rim render if it where a little lighter grey it'd almost look like the rims on my brothers hot rod.

Looking quite nifty so far. The only thing is that the shader belies the lighting, as the 'lights' aren't casting shadows

lol I know, but if I were to set those lights to diffuse it would shoot my render times way up. For now they stay off for testing purposes.

It's looking really good....can I ask for a render on a car part, door or hood would be better.

Ok so here is a new render. Got rid of my top spherical light, put the 3 area lights back on, and turned off Radiosity.

Just for tests here is that wheel with those lighting conditions. I forgot to turn bloom off and just remembered the area lights are set to a yellow tint so everything looks a bit yellow lol.

Looks pretty good on that tire! The bloom looks quite nice, and a bit subtle

you're definitely getting somewhere with this now

Thanks to Cybit for lending me the hood to his Willies Coupe Hood. I think it displays this surface well. Here it is using a variety of different colors.

Thanks. I think I've learned a lot on this one. I started this thread to encourage others to start wips on surfaces as that can be a big portion of any model.

Hey there Josh, I managed to get closer to a waxy gloss coat by mixing up materials, after looking at proton's car shader video on newteks site (you should check it out, it's cool! )

That is fantastic!! How did you guys get so good at creating these shaders? I struggle with learning where and when and why to link them all up!
