Cgtuts+ Workshop #41 Living Room
We're back with another entry in our weekly community project, where we post a render or animation created by a member of the Cgtuts+ community, and ask you to provide feedback and constructive criticism on their work. It’s a great way to learn more about the intricacies of computer graphics, express your viewpoint, and have your own content critiqued by your fellow artists!
Quick Ground Rules
- Be nice! We’ve deliberately chosen work that isn’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
- Feel free to offer any type of advice on – Modeling, Texturing, Materials, Lighting, Rendering, Composition, etc.
- You can also link to another render that you feel offers a great example of this type of content done exceptionally well.
So let's get to it, here's this week's entry created by Ricardo Monteiro!
A Little Background
This is the Living Room from my house. This "project" started when the wife (in 2010) and I thought of changing the design of the room. So, I started to take measures to the living room, furniture, windows, etc. Then designed it in 3dsmax and changed the furniture from place, then if it fit, we'd move it in real life. All of this was done using 3D Studio Max and V-Ray. A few times along the way (specially when doing lighting), I thought I couldn't finish it but I never lost my hope :), so i did it. I am not a professional in 3D or 3dsmax, I just love 3D and everything to do with it, I do it as a hobby. I learned 3dsmax when it was in MS-DOS trying to figure out myself how this thing called 3D worked, looking at the few available tutorials and help.
All of this is done with my laptop, a Toshiba Qosmio G40, not a awesome machine but does the work (slowwwwly :) ).
Please let me know what you think of the work and ways of improving it.
