realy perfect render.
I love it.

Some question
1 did you model the building with 3ds?
2 how did you put light in the tower?in 3ds or photoshop?

thanks for share this realy nice images

Thanks Massimo! I normally use 3ds Max for all 3D, but I sometimes use AutoCAD if I've got time and feel like a change. Some of the guys in our studio use AutoCAD for almost everything though. The lights are Vray Light Material on geometry. I try to do most work in 3D, leaving Photoshop for tweaks only. This is sometimes inefficient, but most often when I'm asked for a different view or animation I'm glad.

Thank you for showing the Slideshow of your process. the First image looks like a sketchup model.

When will the project be constructed?

Simon Moir said...

Sketchup, Aaaagh! Sketchup is a great tool (allegedly), but not for rendering in Max, in my experience anyway. This was the latest received AutoCAD model from the associate architect on this project, Spillis Candela (aecom.com). It may be the concept model I worked on originally, or one built by Spillis... Or by Spine3D.com for Spillis... Or our model modified by Spine3D... I've lost track to be honest. But it wasn't done in Sketchup, I can tell. Construction? Who knows at the moment, but scheduled for later this year.
