Title Eldorado
Software 3ds max, VRay, Fusion
Comment After a while I’ve finally finished my new personal project called “Eldorado”. Soil was originally made for a commercial print but client refused this version asking for less violent soil and so on and so on… We all know how these clients/studio stuff work. I kept the soil scene and decided to use it for my own project since I liked it pretty much. I added lots of extra features like grass strands, roots, leaves and other small bits here and there. At the beginning I wasn’t really sure what will be the hero of the shot. I was thinking about tennis ball, golf ball, pack of cigarettes, bottle etc. but at the and one little toy car won. Here is why: While I was in Los Angeles in 1Q of 2009 I bought lot of toys for my son Adam. All those action figures like Alien, Predator, Spawn, cars like Audi TT, Ferrari and couple of smaller cars I took because I just liked them. As the months passed by and I started to find these toys on the places all over the house and garden almost destroyed by little 2 and 28 years old boys. I took one of them and decided to put it into this soil environment. It was one of these cars I bought just because I liked it. The 1953 Cadillac Eldorado. And that’s the story… the rest is just my usual 3dsmax, Vray, Photoshop, a bit of Fusion and couple of hours per day. Routine indeed. I was surprised that it has HUGE amount of polygons. Something around 1,566,320,053 (yes it’s over 1,5 billion ) I never really cared and I checked just now while I was writing this promo text. There are mostly instanced models so it was all rendering using just 8-10gb of RAM. Scene was rendered to 5000×3200px resolution and it took around 7 hours on my 8 core machine with 16Gb of RAM. Dedicated to my family.

Masterpiece...
after reading artists comment i finally convinced my self that that is a toy car ^_^... before reading his comment I'm really having a hard time convincing my self weather its a toy or a real car that been shrink with a shrink ray, the only thing that convinced me (before reading artists comment) is that the car paint effect looks too thick for a real car... nah... I guess that's just me thinking that way. lol... Anyway thanks for sharing Mr. Denko

This is a wonderful piece of work, but i think it seems as if the car was a toy planted on the ground for a photography project.

"I'm sorry to say but it just looks like a toy car and some soil in the back of a garden..." Uh...
"Mr. Davinci, this painting just looks like the portrait of a girl smiling..."

"This work is beautiful, but the depth focus makes everything look very small."
"I'm sorry to say but it just looks like a toy car and some soil in the back of a garden."
That's too funny.
Beautiful piece of art, a masterful use of the medium.
