The forest house was used as an exercise file to help experiment with 3D vegetation and atmosphere. The scenery was inspired by fantasies worlds such as the Lord of the rings and precedent studies of hills and forests in the early times of the day.
The modelling was done using sketchup and the rendering in the Vray plugin. The grass was achieved by using proxies and scattered around by using Sketchup’s plugin fur-en. The trees were generated with the Laubwerk Plants Kit.
Post processing in Photoshop was one essential factor for this image which allowed me to enrich the moodiness of the image by adding atmospheric fog, tree cutouts for the foreground and last but not least, the horse which gives a sense of scale to the image and reminds you of fantastic worlds.
