Simon's House


Jonatan Mercado took one of Simon Stalenhag's great work and turned it into a 3d scene. I'd say he did a great job at keeping all the important elements in check, well done! What do you guys think of this render?



  1. Terrific recreation of a photograph. At first glance I had to look twice to see which was real.

    However, I prefer the cold stark atmosphere of the original photograph. I am more intrigued with the cold and what appears to be muddy early morning or late evening. The dead grass adds to the chill in the air.

    The 3D is more of a spring or summer feel and much warmer in its environment.

  2. Did you convert the image on the right to a scalable vector image first then recreate the objects according to size?

  3. Maybe he's not going for a one to one recreation, but because I'm anal and nitpicky, the obvious differences to me are the trim moulding seems a little too thick, the lower roof angle looks SLIGHTLY off, and lastly the windows are a different size/position.
    There's also the grass, birds and background trees, but those are more difficult.
