My Latest Clay Model

Discussion in 'Artwork - Photoshops and Sketches' started by FerrariKing, Nov 12, 2007.

  1. Ok so ive started a new clay model. the design is based on the drawing from "JAZU" who drew the picture below.

    ive only had maybe 5-6 hours on it so far so its still far from finished or in its final shape... but just thought i would get your thoughts so far....
     
  2. Awesome
     
  3. still need to do a fair bit of work on the front.... and of course the other side of the car, need to match it and make is symetrical. love doing it, time just flys. this is the last model i made....
     
  4. Man, I really want to do this too! What kind of clay are you using again? You're designs are so sweet.
     
  5. =O

    *Edit*

    I think you, sir, have earned yourself a free design-illustration.
    Either a real car, or a design of your own - I will do it.

    A full-size print-quality illustration, made with mixed media/photoshop.

    Contact me at Jaz devil at hotmail dot com (Jazdevil is one word), and tell me what you would like.

    Cheers!

  6. You're very good!

    4 years ago, I made this Koenigsegg modell. Lengt is about 38cm. The interior is made from real leather.

    Maybe I'll do a new modell soon, we'll see.

    Unfortunately I made it from normal clay not the one designers use, and it changed it's form so the surface has some dints <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  7. Jazu, i have sent you an email.

    Hozz, thats awesome, you even used leather, im very impressed.

    as for what clay, its just regular pottery clay, i just work on it, then wrap it in plastic wrap so it retains its moisture. the first model i did took me 3 months on and off to finish it. this one i hope to have finished by the end of the year, and im looking at making a silicon mould of it, so i can cast a permenant copy of it in i dunno... plaster, or maybe fibre glass...
     
  8. Excellent work, all 3 of you.
     
  9.  
  10. You should make a body for a RC car chassis
     
  11. Awesome work.
     
  12. keep posting this stuff
     
  13. Mad skills by everyone except me <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> But seriously, keep us up to date guys.

    Hi to all!

    Great work that you all have made.

    Take a look at the one I made a couple of yers. More photos can be seen in http://ps10.homeip.net/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=category&cid=30&Itemid=28

    After that, I made a mould of it, and poured Polyester resin on it. More pictures in
    http://ps10.homeip.net/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=category&cid=31&Itemid=28

    Then, I loose my mind, and started to build it in real size <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> The pictures can be seen in http://ps10.homeip.net/

    All the site is in Portuguese(I still had no time to translate it) but you can always see the photos. Also, the site can be slow, so give it time to load the images <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>

    Impressive, you've lost your mind indeed <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Appears to be a Jaguar XF10 replica, do you plan to put it on a driveable chassis?
     
  16. As for FerrariKing, Hozz and Jazu, that's some quality stuff! Keep it up.
     
  17. Hi!

    Yes, I tried to make look like a Jaguar XF10 (as much as I could), I love that car <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    And yes, as plans for the future, when the outter shell is done, I will try to make a driveable chassis to the outter shell... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  18. WOW pds.... you made a full scale model... haha thats so awesome. i would love to have the space and time to do that... now i have the time i just need the space. how did you go about building it.. did you glue layers of foam together. how hard was it to make, for example was it extremely hard, or just hard work. i would really love to do that.. and have almost started to a few times, but then common sense said no...
     
  19. This thread is amazing. +10000 to all of you <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  20. Top stuff to all of you. Lovin the creativity and mad skillz

    Hi!

    I'm glad you like'd it and you are interested on my work. I will try to explain how I did that, but it's not going to be easy...

    The first thing I did was to trace some sections on the model made of polyester resin(about 21). Then I scaled them to real size, print them and then cut them in foam.

    After I have all these sections cutted, I built a structure made of wood to support all the car. After that, I glued all the sections to the structure. With this I had the basic structure of the car formed.

    Then, it came the hardest work: connecting all the section with pieces of foam, so I could get a surface whith the basic form of the car.

    Then it was just about sanding, cutting, and sanding.... Which might even be worst than the last step.

    The easiest way for you to understand how I did it, is to view my build diary ( http://ps10.homeip.net) and view the photos since the begining( http://ps10.homeip.net/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=category&cid=14&Itemid=28) . The first photos are not very good(camera phone), but you will get the picture.

    Well, I was very hesitant, just as you. First I build only the front part, and I thought the result was not bad, so I started to build the rest. About the work I had... Its not very dificult, but requires a lot of work.

    I took about 1 year to build the front part, since the beggining of building the structure, but we have to consider that I only worked on it about 2 or 3 weekends per month and about 6/7 hours or less per weekend...

    The rest of the car, was started to be build about 1 year ago, working even less time for week... I dont have lots of time...

    If you need any more info, let me know and I will help you where I can.

  23. thank you so much, yes it makes sense. did you find the foam easy to work with, like what happened if you make a mistake.. can you just glue more foam over it... im now on a work roster than is 2 weeks straight 1 week off, so i have a bit of time up my sleeves... this could get messy... maybe i'll start with a 1/2 scale or 1/3 scale

    Hi!

    The foam that I have used is extruded polystyrene (DOW Wallmate), it foam to isolate the walls in houses and it's easy to found on any shop that sell construction materials. This is not the best foam for this job, but its quite cheap and I had a friend who got it to me for free <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> . The problem whith this foam is that's not compatible whit polyiester resin, so, if you want to apply fiberglass over it you will have to isolate the foam so the resin wont contact the foam.

    When I make a mistake, I have to make a "straight" hole arround the mistake so I can glue a decent piece of foam. You can see a few examples here:

    http://ps10.homeip.net/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=view&cid=1552&Itemid=28
    http://ps10.homeip.net/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=view&cid=1570&Itemid=28

    By the way, I am not using special glue form foam(it's quite expensive), I am using regular wood glue(white glue) and its quite good <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>


    If you have all that time, I would not waste time building a 1/3 or 1/2 scale model.

    If you already have a smaller model and have space, go straight to full scale... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
