Modern White Living. Credit : Ji Dáp. Workflow : Sketchup – 3dsmax – V-Ray – Photoshop
Project produced for luzern based firm dolmus architecten.
A rainy scene of New York city seen through a window.
A bump map was painted on the foreground windows for the water droplets.
This was used to test the Vray Environment fog, which looks much better than doing the depth in post production.
I tried to make a scene as if it had just rained. It was my first project trying to reproduce this kind of lighting.
My reference was an archdaily project – http://www.archdaily.com/786521/studio-loft-gasparbonta
The render time was approximately 1 hour in 3000 pixels. I think it was very loud, I’m still learning to tweak the Corona Renderer settings.
This project was originally designed for an architectural design studio done for architecture school. While a rather simple project, I drew a lot of inspiration off of my time in living in Denmark and time spent in neighboring Scandinavian countries while studying abroad as a student. This library space that is illustrated is just one of the spaces of this residential project, but presented itself as one of the more unique opportunities for representation given its view over the landscape.
The design project had the intention of adaptive reuse when it came to materials and this is something I aimed to further illustrate in this image. Given that the plywood and the objects occupying the room were to be used from the former farm on the site, I tried to give them a look as if they had been restored but still had the character of older and more used materials.
Overall, the lighting proved to be the most important aspect when it came to giving the feeling that this project was in Scandinavia and not another part of the world. I lit the scene with a single HDRI and looked for a very washed out looking and grey looking light that is typical of the bleak and cloudy days in those parts of the world.
This was the first image in the series and I eventually plan on exploring other parts of the project and illustrating those as well.
Our client approached us to visualise one of their spaces due to be rented soon. It’s about a space that is meant to be used as an office furniture showroom. Due to limited natural light most accent was put on spotlights to highlight various zones and pieces. Mostly based on IES lights.
