Hello friends.
I just finish this image.
Comments are welcome

02-17-2004, 11:54 PM
Some fragments of the Hi-Res image:



02-17-2004, 11:55 PM
Very rich image here as always.

The yellow baracades were an interesting addition. They look a tad small perhaps?

02-17-2004, 11:57 PM
looks amazing, the only thing that detracts from it's realism is the yellow grates... they don't seem to fit with the image.

02-18-2004, 12:01 AM
It might be interesting to swap the yellow baracades with a group of pigeons.

The details and subtlety here is just so painterly.

02-18-2004, 12:14 AM
Very nice work indeed
I agree with the yellow baracade comment, they do look a touch too small. Your stains and weather effects are on point and I especialy like the cracks in the concrete. Also the motion blured birds in the background are a nice touch
keep it up
Fantastic work

02-18-2004, 12:20 AM
Greate job.

Good ilumination. The floor tex is perfect, an example to another
unexperienced designer...
This looks very good.

02-18-2004, 12:21 AM
awesome picture dude...but i agree with t rest of ppl about t looks they´r not casting shadows....beside that its perfect

02-18-2004, 12:24 AM
Good god, another one!!:bowdown: :bowdown:

Please tell me were you get these textures!! There amazing!!

I agree bout the baracades. They looks a bit small and outa place, although there intresing.

02-18-2004, 01:22 AM
Very nice. All the details are sweet.:thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 01:25 AM

02-18-2004, 01:47 AM
really F awesome :drool:
what did u render it with?

02-18-2004, 09:20 AM
Again... ( C ) J.Siquier, really i don´t need to read who´s the author of the image.
Simply amazing .. frontpage material.

I see the very detailed roof .. i see the dirty walls.. i see the composition.. simply perfect.

Really a great piece of art
5 star for you.... again

:thumbsup: :buttrock: :thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 09:47 AM
Sheer perfection. Beautiful work.


02-18-2004, 09:55 AM

Love the lighting.
The only point is that the water pipe is too smooth(IMO)!

Keep up the good work.
:thumbsup: :applause: :applause:

02-18-2004, 11:04 AM
Great! I love it really. As always, a masterpiece.
Great textures, lighting, composition,etc.....

Now, i will wait for a "making of", ...:thumbsup: :buttrock:

02-18-2004, 11:25 AM
Realy nice! :thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 11:26 AM
What can i say ... simple incredible .... :thumbsup:

Decididamente eres uno de mis idolos, Siquier ...

02-18-2004, 11:32 AM
Great capture!
lighting and texture work is really rich :)

02-18-2004, 11:35 AM
Great piece of work :thumbsup:
Add a noise modifier to the dead tree, its branches are straight lines ....

02-18-2004, 11:41 AM
very nice work!

I love the lighting&textures!:thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 11:49 AM
WOW...great work :bowdown:


02-18-2004, 11:51 AM
Yep no need to see the footnote signature ... it's becoming an habit :)

Simply amazing!

02-18-2004, 11:59 AM
¡Fantástico otra vez, Juan!

Me encanta la luz y la selección de los rincones que escoges... habla muy bien de tu sensibilidad. Me gustan las golondrinas volando sobre la casa, pero me parece que a esta resolución el motion blur es excesivo y apenas se entienden.

Mis críticas: Yo tambien pienso que las vallas parecen fuera de escala, un poco pequeñas... aunque quizá lo que pase es que la casa principal tiene la puerta y las ventanas enormes en la realidad. En cualquier caso hay algo que hace parecer al conjunto como de juguete. ¿Quizá la escala del bump de las paredes y las grietas?:hmm:

En cualquier caso, sigue en esta línea artista! :thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 12:00 PM
You need to show that there is glass on the window. And get rid of they little yellow fences (?) because they are distracting, and they look like plastic toys.
Good work overall

02-18-2004, 12:06 PM
WOW :thumbsup: very real!! I love it

02-18-2004, 12:12 PM
simply perfect, as always

very nice lighting and texturing.

Muy buena mano para los detalles, como la nubecita del avion q cruza dandole ritmo por la derecha ;)

Siempre es un gustazo encontrarte en los mejores lugares

This is my first comment on this Forum. Truly Beautifulst. A Job from God!:bowdown:

02-18-2004, 12:35 PM
Hey Nice work man, but in the top right hand corner in the sky there are nice clouds and then theres this long one, where it looks like you were so happy to finsh and you needed to pee, you have just got like a 3D Paint tool and gone WOOSH because no clouds that perfect and striaght, well i have never seen that kinda cloud full stop, Oh Well Nice shit man;)


02-18-2004, 12:45 PM
amazing render..lots of details

02-18-2004, 12:50 PM
I mast say that it is truly brilliant work. I found your last works from signature also superb. I have no comments more than that. Brilliant!

02-18-2004, 12:51 PM
Juan! te pasaste, nuevamente. La imagen es sensacional. Felicitaciones. Me encanta la iluminación (es VRAY ¿no?)
Tus escenas exteriores me parecen geniales. Tal vez puedas volcar tu experiencia en alguna especie de tutorial (además de los que tenes en tu site, que estan muy buenos la verdad).
Un saludo. :thumbsup:

Very nice job pal! Keep it up!
Awesome, as always...

02-18-2004, 01:02 PM
Congratulations!!,one of the best pictures that I see:thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 01:16 PM
Mate, you must have built half of Spain by now! :)

As always a quality image, I've always admired your lighting and texturing skills. I'd also ask you remove the yellow fences.

I've been watching your work for sometime and I'm very impressed... keep up the good work. :beer:


02-18-2004, 01:38 PM
Now that is a house I would like to live in. :)

The Barracades are a little too yellow not sure why they would be there in the first place. But overall, I love it. :beer: :drool:

02-18-2004, 02:01 PM
Hello, THANKS to everybody, I really appreciate the coments and critics.
you ask me for the yellow barricades... I see that you don't like a lot but what can I do if I find them a good element in the scene? they solve me a problem of chromatic balance, there is something that requests me some yellow element for that corner... you know? anyway, I thank all the comments a lot and, of course to the moderators to put my image in frontpage.
I apologize about my english... excuse me

02-18-2004, 02:08 PM
wow ! just great !

really like the texturing and lighting work. :bounce:

02-18-2004, 02:23 PM
friggin awesome!
keep it up.

02-18-2004, 02:23 PM
That is very very good. Your texturing is always flawless. I really wish you would make a texturing tutorial.

02-18-2004, 02:31 PM
Great work.. but i got the feeling that i've seen it before :shrug:

02-18-2004, 02:41 PM
great job! excellent texture and lighting!:thumbsup:

by the way , what render did you use?

02-18-2004, 02:43 PM
Woah, u really create a 'feeling' to the image! Do you make ur houses from pictures or do u make em up?

Hola, Juan.
Desde que ví el thumbnail en la página principal supe que se trataba de una nueva imagen tuya. Eres de los pocos artistas 3D que han logrado un estilo personal y único. ¡¡¡Tus imágenes son inconfundibles y cada vez mejores y mejores y mejores y mejores!!!
¿Algún tip sobre como modelaste las tejas del techo?


Scott Harris
02-18-2004, 03:59 PM
I love it.

the detail is great and it shows that there was alot of thought put into this picture. Great colors as well

02-18-2004, 04:00 PM
amazing work !

how long to render this image ?
i'd love to see a wireframe !! :D

02-18-2004, 04:04 PM
Ok, I must to have one... let me see...

02-18-2004, 04:06 PM
So are the birds in the background part of the file image used to texture the sky?

Wonderful work.


02-18-2004, 04:12 PM
Yes, the birds are in the background.

02-18-2004, 04:26 PM
Very very nice Work! :thumbsup:

Congrat! :beer:

02-18-2004, 04:38 PM
i think the bump mapping looks to large...
great otherwise :)

02-18-2004, 05:17 PM
I lreally like it.
I like the feeling of the environment here
nice textures, nice lighting:thumbsup:

02-18-2004, 05:40 PM
I would love to know how you make your textures. ..

Awsome work!!

02-18-2004, 06:03 PM
As always great, great, great job.

"A veces me pregunto como puedes ir tan rapido creando escenas"



02-18-2004, 06:15 PM
Awesome image. I love the texturing and the lighting. Truly amazing. :buttrock: :thumbsup: :bowdown:

02-18-2004, 07:49 PM
Nice work man:bounce:

02-18-2004, 08:28 PM
Like everyone has said before, Great textures, awesome lighting. The color of the light wants me to set back, relax and enjoy a brew on the sidewalk.

02-18-2004, 08:31 PM
WOw! SIquier :) you did it again! I really like your contrast of Dawn mood, you have the good cyan and the nice copper sunlight !
keep on the good work man,


02-18-2004, 08:37 PM
Awsome work!!!

The textures are great!

keep going this way!

02-18-2004, 08:45 PM
Simply amazing!!

02-19-2004, 12:17 AM
I love it!

This is something strait out of a storybook! The colors are so rich that it accomplishes the hard-to-get comic-realism-look. Nicely carricated testures and all! AND some really good arcitectural design!

02-19-2004, 12:27 AM
Wow, really great. I haven't done much work in Architectural stuff, I'm still learning anatomy and physical attributes.

The only crit is that the upper windows' edges around the glass seem to round for that type of wall..but I love the testure/color/outdoor lighting. Very good :)


02-19-2004, 12:56 AM
wow, that is awesome.
Beautifully rich textures make it feel very warm and give the image personality.

I'm curious, how detailed is the modeling, and how much of the realism comes from good texturing and lighting ?

Very impressive

02-19-2004, 01:09 AM
Great stucco work! Amazing detail.

02-19-2004, 01:36 AM
Good job, but those edges on the house are too sharp. Bevel it baby!

:bowdown: <-- top view of face doing situps...makes ya think doesn't it

02-19-2004, 02:24 AM
very good looking image
ur dirty wall look so real - and this comment is very kind comment in CG world - I like it and congrat on the fronpage

02-19-2004, 03:09 AM
just want to say woaw...!! your textures is so real ! one time more...


02-19-2004, 03:55 AM
Beautiful! I love the details, textures and lighting. :)

02-19-2004, 05:18 AM
Wow, just wow. Your texturing is phenominal, lighting is great, too. Oh, and the modeling, and and and...
...g, maybe I could just kiss your ace s'more.

02-19-2004, 05:20 AM
Your image is really nice. I especially like the lighting.

02-19-2004, 06:39 AM

02-19-2004, 07:20 AM
simply amazing!!!!

02-19-2004, 07:56 AM
Hey Juan!

I am not gonna tell you anithing abut thecnics. As I told you, when I see your works I fell more like seeing an oil picture.

As allways, great composition, amazing color and great sense of artistic scene.

Great work firend!!!


02-19-2004, 08:18 AM
quite detailed work. very good :thumbsup:

however there are only two criticism.
1. barriers on the left site break the style.
2. the tree behind the house is without leaves but the scrub still

02-19-2004, 08:57 AM
When I saw the thumbnail in the top of cgtalk, I knew it's from you!! well done, good modelling, and lightning...and nice house... :)

Keep up the good work!

Enhorabuena, tio! :)

02-19-2004, 10:11 AM
Everything is perfect except the road.:rolleyes:

I love your lightning aproach.;)

02-19-2004, 11:57 AM
Wauuuuuuu.... Simply AMAZING... Superb...

It´s always a pleasure see your work... Is great to see how ART can be done with "non-analogic" method...

Is really amazing, your style is simply unique.. Excellent... I have no words to describe it...

Off ocurse... you have my 5 STARS ;)

02-19-2004, 12:00 PM
That's just amazing :)


02-19-2004, 12:56 PM
Very nice as always, I really like the lighting and texturing... you have great skills. :cry:

Just can you tell me how much times it took to render that first image ???

02-19-2004, 01:52 PM
since when is it allowed to post photogr.. ooh nevermind :)

nice work ;)

02-19-2004, 02:49 PM
WOW Cool!!...

Just the textures are too "the same." i mean the left seems like the right. Sorry for my bad English.

02-19-2004, 06:19 PM

Great job on texuturing :thumbsup:

what program did you use?

keep it up :buttrock:

02-19-2004, 07:00 PM
:) :bounce:

02-19-2004, 08:14 PM
I dont know if you got this comment already but here it goes. The color of the background sky does not correspond to the sunset lighting you are aiming at. Anyway spectacular rendering.

02-20-2004, 12:17 AM
Great scene Juan, I love the atmosphere ( o como se escriba, me reifero a que me gusta el ambiente creado en torno al edificio), and fantastic texture job.

Congratulations Juan, you are my inspiration for my next scene.

Espero mandarte algo pa k la veas muy pronto.

02-20-2004, 12:56 AM
U are the best one
the only tamagochi´s powha
best regards friend

02-20-2004, 06:07 AM
as usual, the way, i've seen most of ur works are set under daytime, why not try to render something during night time? it will be stunning also i think....

02-20-2004, 07:31 AM
Nice illumination of the scene maan, damn you have patience. Nice composition and seems very real .keep it up. Please tell us which rendering program u use ?????

:applause: :beer: :thumbsup:

02-20-2004, 08:27 AM
Thanks, thanks, thanks to everybody the image is now in the CG choice Gallery I feel happy.
- Yes, maybe I will try some nocturnal ilumination
- I´ve used MAX6 + VRay
- The scene was completed in 2 week
- The original render is 2.600px X 1.950px and the rendertime was 1:50:58
- The only postproduction was to add saturation in some areas.
and finally THANKS again

02-20-2004, 11:08 AM
Wow! so fast!
I wonder, why don't you use mental ray if you have it built in max 6? haven't you tried it?
And a question: what machine are u using? because the rendertime is short and the image resolution is pretty high...!

:applause: Incredible image... Again!


02-20-2004, 11:13 AM
I´ve used VRay (really fast) and my machine is a Pentium-IV 2.500 and 1Gb.ram

02-24-2004, 06:33 PM
Fantastic work Juan looks amazing ,Very Good Textures.Good ilumination.
Simply amazing................:applause:

02-24-2004, 08:05 PM
beautiful Siquier !!!!!!!!

tiiio, va a hacer que me valla para alli y encadenarme para que no derriben la serreria !!! Es preciosa la imagen, lleva tu firma como no :beer:

02-26-2004, 01:24 PM
amazing:) i love your lights and thedetail of shader

03-02-2004, 10:15 PM
I like the yellow gates. They remind me of feeble attempts to protect pedestrians in Madrid.
Excellent work!!:eek:

03-29-2004, 08:50 AM
Finally, the real sawmill was burned :cry:

04-12-2004, 04:43 AM
Amazing work. The only thing that bugs me is the tree in the background. The branch looks very 3d.
