I remember when I was a child and I played in my dad´s garage. There was this awesome poster on the wall and in that poster was the legendary Nissan Skyline -72. It was on a race track somewhere in Japan and it had small raindrops all over the car which make it to look like it was covered with diamonds. I was about 7 years old that time and it was the coolest thing I ever seen. I started to look more information about that car in the library and from that day on I knew that I wanted to work with cars when I´m older. This dream came true and I started my car mechanic studies and graduated. Knowing much more about cars now I can see that this car was so much ahead of it´s time. I´m glad that Nissan has kept some of the original designs in their latest models. The original poster is gone but I wanted to create this work to be similar of how I remember it. I wish I could have this car someday but 3d version is enough for now. I´m now 22 but I still think this was my first true love and it´s the prettiest car ever made. True samurai of the car industry! Modeling done in 3ds max 2014 and the whole scene is cg. Rendering in V-ray. Color correction in Photoshop. Rendering time was 10h.
