I recently joined the CG Architecture group over at flickr, and this gorgeous image catched my attention today. The great thing about it and other images by Gordon Tarpley is that he kindly composed the process of his work from initial rendering to final image. These videos are very inspirational and are a rich source of information about how to postwork a render and add people, vegetation and amend it in many ways to achieve the desired and result.
I finally found the time to finish part 2 of Making of ‘MS House’ at dusk, Part 1. This time I’ll cover topics starting from the export of the SketchUP 3d model and up to the final render & post-production. Autodesk released the SketchUP Importer for 3D Studio Max 2010 which allows for a new and probably better importing of the SketchUP model then the 3DS format use described in this article. Next time I’ll keep post parts a week apart at most.
Competition images from MVRDV’s design of DnB NOR headquarters. Put aside the fact i love this design, the clean, light images are very nicely done. This is great reference for NPR (Non Photo-realistic Rendering) Read more
Great looking photos for this private house in Los Angeles. The dusk image is almost render like with very nice colors. This set provides very good reference for water, both calm and wavy, as well as white interiors and the combination of interior and exterior in the same shot. Read more
Opening the blog inspiration section is an architectural photography image set of a very cool looking office building. I love that they show several variations of the same viewpoint, you can learn a great deal about how materials react to different lighting situation this way. This set is varied in that it shows day and night exteriors and some “white supremacy” interiors i love so much. The dusk views look almost unreal with very intense levels of color. Read more
