modelling WIP-Dutch city bike

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying my hand at modelling that trusty companion of every Dutch (city-dwelling) person: the city bike, "stadsfiets" or also "omafiets" (grandma-bike) :lol:
Render in (appropriately) Cycles4D.

The actual bike has a bit more rust on it, but it might actually be interesting to present it super clean and stylised ;) Otherwise it will be a good excercise to make a rust shader in Cycles. But for now I want to focus on the model.

Out in the countryside where I'm from we'd call it a "bierfiets"  (beerbike):lol: 

Will you be creating the tire profile from geo too or is that for the texturing process?

    I thought a bierfiets was one of those monstrosoties where you all sit on a riding bar on the streets of Amsterdam pissing off the locals ;)

    Don't know yet about the tire profile. I don't think I'm gonna aim for ultra-detail but let's see how it goes.

    Right haha those are too! But it's usually a complete wreck what we used to call a bierfiets because of all the crashes after a long night in the pub ^^

    Well, I should probably give the wheels some attention soon. What was the hard thing about the spokes? I thought that would be reasonably straightforward using some cloners no? Of course it's not quite a simple circular clone pattern so it might be more tricky than I think :) I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    i did mine manually as i had holes for the spokes to go into to line up as well, and if you look at the actual spoke pattern they have quite specific positions spokes inside and outside of the hub on both sides and they all have to line up from both sides in the centre of the wheel :D
