Great pictures! The Church of light was constructed very well. It was creatively recreated, I'm impress with this!
I think this is one of those very rare occasions when the renders look better than the photos! Very well done indeed. Love the lighting and texturing work too.
Thank you so much, Mr.Bekerman, for your attention to my work and your appreciation that is so valuable for me. Church of the light is the one of my most favorite projects of the great master and I’m now planning to go further and finish the Sunday school . And above all this I’m going to do a making-off exclusively for your website as soon as possible. So, there is so much more to do! Thank you again!
@ElvinAliyev You are most welcome Elvin, work like this can not go unnoticed. I look forward very much for the making-of article about this scene, as I'm sure all others here too!
the only remark i'd have is that the texturing of the concrete panels is not accurate at all. see the reference shot here http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4067/4582085320_71aa29bc70_o.jpg

@3dworks Long 'Trip' from model to render across 3 apps! What are you using today? the same setup?
@ronenbekerman yes, basically still using the same setup today. the rendering with maxwell is straight out LW via plugin, so it is more like a 2 app workflow. as my work usually focuses on very large and complex projects, i'm using formz because in need of CAD-like features like symbol handling, flexible layer and object handling, high precision numerical drawing tools, proper DWG import, massive geometry handling, etc. the result is always a real solid model, which makes rendering with an unbiased or 'physical' based engine definitely easier. the export from formz as LWO is very smooth, making the workflow trouble free.
on the plus side for a few extra steps to transport the data from one app to the other and for not having an integrated modeling environment i'd put the freedom of using formz for creating the geometry as a dedicated architectural solid modeler on one side and on the other side the option to use lightwave with it's own excellent render engine, alternatively the very fast kray render plugin for fast and high quality animation rendering, or the slower maxwell engine with imo the best overall image quality on the market. but as it's always good to be able to use different tools, so i'm also trying modo these days, and start getting nice results as well...
very impressive work! here my own recreation from some years ago (updated link):
I'd like to collect all the 3d recreations of this project so please add here links to those you know of.
