future race car with spherical wheels

i am testing new render engines and using a old model of mine. its an concept of future former one car. it has sphere as tires, this makes it possible to move more nimble and efficient.

goodyear showing a similar concept this year. Goodyear calls it the Eagle-360, and admits that it’s technology for the future, though functional now. Specifically, the tire is intended for self-driving cars, and offers advances in “maneuverability, connectivity and biomimicry for autonomous mobility.” That last one means it was inspired by nature. read an article on MNN here

maya sprites rendertest in rendeman

its a simple render test of maya sprites in arnold and renderman Studio. it uses a simple noise pattern on a 2d ramp with 2d ramp displacement. one simple noise plugged into a ramp can give a really complex shading behaviour. the extreme displacement come from a simple ramp, this give the smoke more depth.
