    The King Suite - Full Tour

    I've been modeling a 3d luxury hotel suite called the "King Suite" over the last year. Eventually many of these renders / animations will be used in a short film called "Relapse". So I hope you can take a few minutes to check out the fruits of a years labor.

    The tour begins in the suites private elevator which wisps you to the main foyer. You will visit the formal Salon and Dining Room. From there the tour takes you to the Master Suite, which features the master bedroom, master sitting room, master closet and master bath. From there enjoy the suites Fitness and Rejuvenation amenities which includes a private gym, steam shower, sauna and indoor pool . Finally the suites Recreation Amenities will surely impress. Enjoy the billiard room, home theater, the Crossroads bar, and finish up in the private casino and gentleman's club.
    All of the 3d modeling was done in Blender and rendered in Cycles. Many of the animations were composited in After Effects.

    Here are just a couple of the many rooms that make up the King Suite.

    Hey harley

    This is really an outstanding piece of work that you can really be proud of "Take a bow"

    The attention to detail and the persistence to carry on with this for a whole year really is impressive "Take another bow"

    The pool room is my favourite part, the trick shot and timing is really spot on "Take your final bow"

    5* from me.

    hey Harley. Long time no see, man. This is fantastic. You've been really working on this hard, and it shows. The music, first of all is spot on imo. My favorite room is the dining room with the chandelier...gorgeous. I liked the dart throw as well, cool thing to add. I don't even want to know how much the costs are for a night

    I hate that I've been gone so long and am just now coming back, so I missed out on some of the WIP. But I'm inspired by your dedication to the project! You get ***** stars from me too. I'm heading over to the WIP now to catch up

    This is one fantastic final product, totally blows Final Inspection away.
    Is there a plan for a third installment?

    Thanks for the nod in the credits. Not sure I deserved it but thank you very much none the less.

    The commitment to detail is outstanding, and your workflow is really inspiring. You do such a good job of breaking a huge undertaking into manageable bits and tackling them one at a time.

    Can't wait to see which hijinks will ensue this time!

    This is great! But the only thing that's bugging me is the pool water. The color seems wrong and there is too much movement in it for an indoor pool. It looks more like a lake.

    Wow. Awesome work! I can't imagine how long this took to render. I really like final inspectionbut this looks so much better, so much detail!

    @everybody Thank you very much for the encouraging feedback for this project, and thank you for the stars. I really hope people will take the time to watch the video. I hesitated to add a lot of stills, but I promise you that you will see a lot more rooms, a bunch of animations, and lots of renders and camera angles of all the various rooms. It really has been a labor of love...with a little of hair pulling & swearing as I have been struggling through it So if you can, reward me with 6 minutes of your viewing time in exchange for a years worth of work.

    I just want to clarify something... this tour video is not the short film. I'm beginning now to create the storyline, getting characters ready, and I have already done a few animations behind the scenes. Many of these renders you see in the tour video, and some of the animations, will be incorporated into the short film.

    I couldn't have got to the point I am right now, without the help of the people who are noted in the credits at the end of the tour. I have a WIP thread for this project. If you want to check out my progress as I now move into the short film stage, the WIP can be found here

    Congratulations on laying out very solid foundation of the next revolution in your Las Vegas projects spiral!
    I could only repeat what was already said by others concerning detailing (furniture and steamy place- my favs) and admire efforts needed to get thus far.
    Like AnthonyC said, not sure i deserve being mentioned - thanks a bunch, anyways.
    Awaiting for the appearance of the King...

    Looking even nicer since I discovered why my browser was killing the contrast. The shower, bathroom and behind the bar are especially amazing.

    Truly outstanding work, harley! The attention to small details is evident, not only in the modeling, materials and lighting, but also in the editing. The subtle bump in the elevator, for example, is a nice touch.

    Seeing all the rooms together, you've clearly done a LOT of work to get to this point. Are there anymore rooms you still have to create for the Relapse video? For your sake, I hope not! I'm sure focusing on character animation alone will be a big task for the next video.

    Again, incredible work. Five stars from me!

    Studio Renders- Seating, Tables & Cabinetry

    @eppo A guest for the suite in most definitely in the making, beginning the short film now.

    @Oldghost I'm glad the contrast change you discovered on your browser settings are working. The bar was definitely one of my favorite rooms .

    @James Candy There may be a need for additional rooms based on where the storyline takes me. I may need to model a room in the inspectors apartment... but not sure yet.

    @Madrid Thanks for the nice comments, hope you can continue following the project in the WIP

    The amount of modeling for this project has been staggering, but really helped my learning curve. I found the sofas and chairs some of the more challenging because I could never find good rear views of the furniture. Some I even had to guess on. But here is a studio render of most of the seating I modeled for the suite. Some chairs were retextured with different fabric at times.

    Tables and Cabinets were easier for me to model, but a royal pain to UVunrap. Because it was really important for the wood grain to run in the right directions. I'm going to do another render with some of the built in cabinetry which was extensive in many of the rooms.

    Studio Renders- Bar Accessories

    @Sayan Thanks for checking out the video, I'm happy to have completed the suite modeling. The only area I was going to model but decided not to was a chef's kitchen.

    The Crossroad Bar in the video was a real fun room to do. However it required a ton of accessories to make it look like a real bar. Many thanks to the people noted in the credits that helped with the liquor bottles. That allowed me to spend a good amount of time on the various glassware and bar accessories.

    Studio Renders - Lighting

    The King Suite required a lot of lighting fixtures, these are most of the modeled fixtures. However there was lots of cabinetry lighting that was really challenging.... seems like it was a constant fight with glass and blown out highlights.

    I used IES light profile lamps for most of the suite. Primarily IES wall wash lights, sconce, cabinet lighting and pendant lights. I was happy to hear IES is going to find it's way into the trunk.

    As Tuxon said the indoor pool water/shader can be improved.
    Other than that awesome work, the amount and quality of the details in those rooms it's really impressive!

    Studio Renders - Fireplaces

    @everybody A few people have mentioned the pool water as needing some improvement, and I agree. It's challenging because the water takes on a different look based on the camera angle. The other problem I have is I used the same tile inside the pool as I did on the patio. Most pools use blue tiles and this could be something to experiment with.... but I want to do further discussion on the pool , in the WIP thread instead of here.

    James Candy asked about other new rooms.... well check out the WIP for a little teaser of a new one I just posted here

    Thank you for the continued nice comments on the suite, and I hope more people will be able to check out the full tour video.

    The King Suite Tour video shows many fireplaces. I found them to be fun but challenging to model. I think the fireplaces look better in their actual environment because you see the surrounding wood and capture environment reflections in the glass.
