I like the way you have encapsulated the 'desert look' ie: hard shadows and highlights close up, and fading to fuzziness in the background quite quickly... not easy to do at the best of times... very impressive!
This piece is fantastic, I have to admit, i love rally, i used to watch the WRC all the time when it was on the speed network. Some of the onboards are just sicking ( in a good way ) iv never seen someone throw a car into a corner and move their feet that much in a sec lol. Great Work!
lol, they moved it to HD Thearter if you get that network. I remember one time they were in Brazil, it was a cam just above the helmet, seeing the shrubbery and rocks fly past through the windscreen as the speed climbed to 80 plus was just crazy. And then watching them throw the car into a corner and kick it from 6th gear to 2 is nuts too!
Wouldn't ya know it ...we do not get that channel and the budget is a bit limited for us except for basic cable. Every now and then Speed Channel shows a few highlights so at least I get my fix there. I know what you mean though. Going that fast on unimproved roads is WILD!
Cool! The stippling effect works very well for the desert environment. I've always liked the way they modify the subcompact cars for these types of rallys. They have a real tough and purposeful look about them. It almost makes me want to buy one.
