Trying to improve my understanding of reflections. No references.

Awesome car design. As for reflections, I think you just need to figure out what your surrounding is, where the light is, what type is it, and under which angle it falls on the surface. A lot of things to take into consideration, I doubt I will ever learn it properly.

Right, there are a lot of things to consider. However you can also simplify in many ways. You can always assume a horizon and related reflections going across the form. Also, on a pure visual level, a soft gradient broken up with a hard value change implies a reflective surface as well.
It helps a lot when you can reflect nearby elements from your environment into your object, again, this can be simplified and will still work.

Love the tire tracks, but without a bit more shading on the ground, they're kinda hard to "figure out" at first, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, very nice.

Good observation. I definitely rushed the background and focused on the car in this images. I think it's a general weakness I need to work on. Thanks!
