Relaxing evening in forest

I wanna share with you my last personal project.

I used Blender 2.92 alpha with scatter addon for modeling. Rendered in Cycles (GPU mode + intel denoise). I also made post-process in Photoshop CS6.



It’s pretty good, the way you scattered and composition of the scene is very clean.

As for improvements, at first, I would use the rules of third to center the building. I can feel that there is more space on the right, and it bugs me.
The building itself lack a bit of detail, you can’t really construct it that way. Maybe the exterior wood is slightly different, something to mark the edges, a simple suspended ceiling light in the empty volume should give a little sense of reality and add some context.

Have a nice day !

Thank you for nice feedback. You have right about building, it’s too raw. I made it too rush and focused mainly on scatter things. Next time I’ll try to keep same quality for all objects in 3D scene.
Have a nice day too!

I featured you on BlenderNation, have a great weekend!

Thank you very much :slight_smile:

I have to say I love the building even the raw feeling.
I agree with Jeremiah about composition I would just crop it little bit from right.
One thing that interests me is how did you light the path to the building? Did you add some light or it is just me, because it looks strange and I would expect this soft light elsewhere. The house looks like on the hill and is rotated to other side and I do not see it there on the ground, but it is very nice eye leading strategy.

Anyway I love it and as personal project it is amazing.

Thank you 3Dshaker :slight_smile: Yep you cached me because I added extra two warm point lamps with very low emission power to bring some warm feeling to the path. My goal was to simulate some reflection light from the window (I keep in mind that this is not physically correct but just some artistic touch).
Anyway I’m glad that you noticed all weakness and still like it :slight_smile:

Photographers cheat all time. Water in pool look so dull? No problem, just sip little blue paint :smile:
This is true story, seriously. On my local art forum I sometime read about such little “cheats” in photo sub forum. It’s useful for 3D artist… because photograph is older than 3D visualization, and they already establish rules what “work”.


And that’s the way :slight_smile:
I would like to share with you this two films from fstoppers where we can check how pro architectural photo looks like:
