Hi guys, would like to share with you my personal project. As usual, I found an interesting project on Archdaily and tried to replicate photos in 3D. For me, it´s the best way how to learn something new and increase my skills, through the process. In this case, I put the main focus on realistic evening lightning. Every building looks great during blue hour when cold blue meets a warm yellowish color.
I spent around 10 days with the project. The modeling part was pretty fast, as you can see the house itself is plain, easy to model and a lot of props I borrow from my older projects or I bought them. The tricky part was lighting, I made dozens of test renders and tried several different HDRi textures with various settings, till I was satisfied with the results.
As always, I created the scene in Blender and render it with Octane engine.
The architect of the project is X/A atelier. Original photos and more information about the building you can find here: https://bit.ly/2XLLZI5
The scene is lit with HDRI textures from No emotion
The model of a super detailed road bike is from Szymon Kubicki. You can download the bike and give him appreciation here: https://bit.ly/2LGvTND
If you have some questions about the project, Blender, Octane, the meaning of life or something else, don´t hesitate to ask in comments or send me a message.
