Cgtuts+ Workshop #11 Kitchen Visualization

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

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 video or 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 Dominic Colaso!

A Little Background

This Kitchen visualization was done in 3D Studio Max using VRay. I Did this project as a self study workflow for improvement on:

  • Modeling & Unwrapping
  • Texturing
  • Lighting & Rendering
  • Post Processing
  • Project Management

My main source of reference images were from the IKEA kitchen range 2011. The reason I particularly chose to create this scene was because it had many objects to model, with accurate dimensions. And it also gave me a nice space to work with lighting and camera setups.

Points for the critique.

  • Lighting
  • Overall image
