A Tea For 2

The picture was taken somewhere in a town of Italy in a small violin shop of a violin maker named Carla. The photo was taken by Professor Aldo, a teacher from School of Children who visited her that afternoon, that has interest with violins and a crush of her. Prof. Aldo took this photo, while she was making some tea for them and he happened to capture the moment of frolan (the cat) looking curiously at the pigeon using his Leica 35mm M Summicron. It was a fine afternoon to end it with a tea for two…  —Peter Ang

As you can see in my images with material override -the monochromatic scene- showing only the ambient illumination to see if the lights coming from the window and IES lights are enough for the scene. Once it’s ok to my preferences, I apply all materials, reflections, etc. to the scene.  —Zernan Suarez

Sala

The HDRI image that I use comes from CG-Source and what  I tried was to not only see it from the window, for that I could just do a photo-montage, but mainly to see the reflection on the glass and a little in the fishbowl. I did the rotating camera so I could see a part of he window and the small plant to the right of it, and also to give it a more original look. Also try to let the sunlight into the room because the scene was a bit dark and on top of that to add some gloss to the whole scene.  —Pablo Garcia

The Reading Corner

Hi, my name is Peter Drew, I am currently working as a Senior Digital Artist at Neoscape in New York. This piece was inspired originally by a picture in a Minotti brochure, however throughout the process, it changed into a cosy space, cluttered with memories and books. It took me about 2 weeks to finish, in my spare time outside of work. I used 3DSMax, Vray for rendering, some Zbrush and Photoshop for post. Thanks for looking.  —Peter Drew

Old Tavern

The client of this wanted an old fashioned Beer tavern, so I searched for references, and a lot of beer mark pics for the pictures on the walls. One of the challenges was trying to capture the cavern like atmosphere for the image. As you know it is tricky to get rid of the 3d feel in the cg images. This atmosphere was accomplished in post production process, which is, I think, the most important step for getting your image to the next level (of course the rest have to be well done too… ) . But is in this stage where you are going to get that extra feel.  —Juan M. Puerta

Simple Interior

My name is Eduardo Câmara. I’m a 3D Artist and partner at 4u2see studio in Portugal. This was a personal project of a simple interior. The inspiration came from the work of the 3D master Bertrand Benoit and from the photographer Ditte Isager. The scene was to refresh some of my skills and dive in to Thea Render.  —Eduardo Câmara

Azuma House

Azuma Design is a true home of the original inspiration Azuma House by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. This project was a lot of fun; I wanted to study HDRI lighting and concrete materials. During the studies I found that the time to render in HDRI directly becomes very long!  —Matheus Passos
