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.
