68firbird-a by ~xtrm3d is a beautiful 3d modeling & rendering work with accurately exaggerated forms, shapes and details. Realism is on the top as always. Visit the artist's gallery for more of his stunning work... (
I had a matchbox car like that, with the awesomely exaggerated engine. (I draw my vehicles like that too, but not as realistically.) BTW, I think it's the blurred background/shallow depth of field, but this looks like a tilt-shift photo. Is that intentional?
The modelling is excellent, but I wouldn't call this a realistic rendering by any means. Looks like a "non-biased" renderer was used. Actually I thought it was intended to look slightly abstract, in which capacity it really works well.
