Wow!!!! incredible images as ussuall! Is the round leather couch modeled in Z brush? the wrinkles give it an amazing realism!
wow incredible beautiful colors so rich,and the lighting is also very pleasant and moody. very beautiful work. what about the lighting how did you manage to have so a beautiful low to high ratio o low to key without losing contrast save it as and hdri or open exr? and tone it later? or you used the tone mapping directly form vray and also witch criteria you used to get that contrast without over exposing some areas
very niece work one of the best i ever seen
Great work (as always)! Is it possible to see your material set up for the curtains? they looks great!
@Pixela I would love to see some step by step tutorials, to achieve this graet work!
@ronenbekerman Thanks Ronen :D
Absolutely stunning! What's amazing is that I knew who created these images before reading the title, just by looking at the previews. Definitely a testament to his quality of work, consistency and style.
@herrhummel Thank you very much :)
@santamuerte Yes I save as exr and then work on it. Actually there is very subtle color grading in this scene. If you look at the night render, that is saved out of VFB with very little curves and the glare and bloom is VrayLensEffects.
@ArkinAdamEsref Ok I will make this :)
@stanislaw.m.s Sure. I will try to make a short tutorial about curtains as soon as possible.
@vizcon3d I hope I can find time to prepare a making of tutorial.
@pixela25 Sure thing ;)
@BryceMironuck Thanks- I feel great honor to hear such nice comments on my work :D
ok thanks , so it not like you put some fill lights in the areas that where to dark you just lift the information in you exr? right? .. so you just worry of having enough information so dont get noise, meaning a very high setting.
@Pixela Would be great! Thank you:)
Outstanding work Pixela! Hey i have an issue, hope you can answer it. when i save exr using "render to V-ray raw image file" option inside vray , the exr gets washed out when i open it in photoshop . Yes, I can change the gamma settings to .45 inside photoshop , but the problem is i have many render passes in the .exr and it takes too much time to manually gamma correct them . Am i doing something wrong here ??
thank you so much i hope this improve my work flow thank you @Pixela
@santamuerte Well actually in this project, I didn't need any fill light inside max or any serious lighting touches in post.
My settings for this project and Bronte was too high because I had a strange noise problem caused by the new DMC sampler.
@stryik3r It happens because you bake gamma correction in your render and when saved as exr, it is gamma corrected again. You can change the gamma value of exr from exr preferences when you click save.
