1954 Chevy pickup

Hi All,
Something I put together today.
1954 Chevy pickup.
I made the fenders matte black. I really liked the contrast between the high gloss red paint next to the matte black fenders.
32 bit render is your friend with these type of shots. (where you want headlights on awith a dark moody feel)
Actually I render everything in 32 bit if its not a animation or VR.
You have so much more color information to work with in your post software.
Model is from Turbosquid

Beautiful!  I learned to drive in a '54!  Wish I had it now!  I hopped up the straight-six with a bore job, hot cam, headers and Mallory ignition and triple side-drafts.  A real axle-breaker!

I like the headlights!  But maybe tone them down a bit?  I've noticed that the professional automobile photographers usually apply half-voltage to them for photo shoots, which in this case would be 3-4 volts.  The result is a warm "yellow-orange" glow.  The best examples IMO are the photos taken for the high-end Rodder's Journal magazine.  You can see examples on their website.

And the matte black fenders are a great touch!  Actually, an option at the time was glossy black fenders, which were stunning against the cherry red.
