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 the 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 the Octane engine.

I am a hard-working, stubborn and passionate 3D artist professional. Always striving for excellence in satisfying my client´s needs. What I love about visualization is that I can give the form to the ideas people have in their heads and therefore I help them to become the reality. I focus on doing realistic 3D visualizations in Blender with Photoshop post-production afterwards. I have more then five years of experience in working with these programs and thanks to my education I can offer strong architectural as well as artistic background. Not only I know construction techniques, building codes and laws, which can be beneficial for the client and saves lots of time and money, but also I approach each project to be an artistic piece. I try to capture the idea the project represents so it can clearly communicate the client´s intentions and makes it more attractive, inspiring and outstanding.
