Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

hello people,

This is my latest personal work i finished.

The piece was done in aproximatly 3 to 4 days with quite some post-production work in photoshop.

It was alot of fun to do an oriental based render as it has specific colours with a very warm feeling wich i realy like.

your welcome to give crits and comments.

realy nice light. I like the wall texture the most. :)

09 September 2004, 05:24 PM
Cool. Another beauty Nelis. Any particular inspiration for this one?

09 September 2004, 06:04 PM
Great piece dude!

I like the diversity of the window framing...
Much detail, which creates great light effects.

On to the rest of the restaurant... :D

09 September 2004, 06:22 PM
Wow! it's a very nice light composition. I like the wooden frames in the front and back of the room.

It looks very realistic!

great stuff niels

Try to cut down on the brightness in the background and maybe add some steam to the bottle too?

btw: your last name means 'retard' in danish :)

09 September 2004, 06:29 PM
thnx guys.......

i had some inspiration while searching on google for some reference for a friend of mine and there it was......has got a lot of my own though!

the bottle should have some cold water (i tried steam from that one but didnt do anough to the image) and thnx for the explenation hehehe its kinda kewl though......i had a laugh!

This is truely a fairytale realisme in it's eastern environment!

Beautiful work! It's a sort of voyeuristic peek into a nice and warm little room and that makes it peaceful and relaxed for the eye to look at. I like the wall-cracks, the detailed ceiling and especially the hills in the back (is this CG too?) it makes the colorscheme complete!

Keep up the good work!!!


09 September 2004, 07:25 PM
awesome atmosphere!!! Keep up the good work!

09 September 2004, 07:43 PM

here is the wireframe........

really nice atmosphere to sit and relax :P...but you have some problems with aa though:)

09 September 2004, 11:30 AM
the aa problems arent really aa problems but i rendered the original image at 3000x3000 and scaled it down a little but then it became blurry so i applied an unsharp filter in photoshop...

thats probably what causes it.....also if an image is to big in windows explorer it automaticaly scales it down and then its also jacked alot

but thnx for the crits and comments

The atmosphere you created is really nice! Vray does a fine job with lighting if you do it right and you managed it great!
AA problems are easily solved with vray! Just a few settings changes and you're there. It will only cost you some longer render times.

Nice job!


09 September 2004, 07:19 AM
i wanna be there:)

great work:thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 10:52 AM
Kudos to you Nelis.

I love the lighting,...your good use of color really did bring forth the fairytale look.

There really is nothing that I could say to improve the image apart from that maybe it would've been nicer if it was a bit blurry.

Keep it up

Very nice scene. It seems like a pleasant environment to be in.

09 September 2004, 05:37 PM
I like this image very much! The mood is great, and you've accieved that 'warm feeling'. I check out your website and it seems you're really good at nice lighting in VRay...! :)

Cool job, other Dutchy ;)

09 September 2004, 02:02 PM

09 September 2004, 06:12 AM
Beautiful and relaxing to look at. I agree with the earlier post, "wish I was there"...

09 September 2004, 06:16 AM
wow nice i like it

09 September 2004, 06:18 AM
nice work

09 September 2004, 12:30 PM
What a Beautiful, Peaceful image. Like several have already said, I'd like to be there!!

09 September 2004, 12:07 AM
Great work Nelis. Love the look and feel of this image. One little crit if I may - I feel that the ballustrade /bannister right in the foreground actually distracts from the composition/balance of the image and it would look better without it. Apart from that it's awesome ;)

09 September 2004, 02:51 AM
sweet :bounce: :buttrock:
i am a newish user o max...
lighting mostly configured in vray?
or in max?(if so, which verjzion)

09 September 2004, 01:00 PM
I can't really see any room for criticism in this work... only praises.
So much peacefulness and tranquility emanating from it that you feel like going there. I really love the FX of light striking the vapour flying off the bowl... And again have no critics whatsoever... just perfect (in my eyes) :thumbsup:

Want some more :)

09 September 2004, 07:37 PM
This encourages me to do the time and learn 3D!

Thanks! :thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 08:35 AM

09 September 2004, 02:40 PM

I like the wireframe model too...looks cool enough to be used as a wallpaper or something....adding a little glow effects here and there.a little more detail....

About the finished work..i love it...great sunny day...intimate ambience...shame that resizing did a damage to the quality. :(

09 September 2004, 02:11 PM
Very realistic look. How much time it tooh for render :bounce:

10 October 2004, 01:17 AM

china china china china china ???

11 November 2004, 11:38 AM
very good!

11 November 2004, 09:44 AM
I have nothing for criticism. It a perfect render, one of the best ones! I like the warm athmosphere, the morning feeling! Keep going!

One question: the original idea was from a photo?

11 November 2004, 09:34 AM
good light effects ... texture is fantastic

12 December 2004, 02:42 PM
I see you...
Cool. Looks just like a living room. I can't believe I'm just now seeing this.

This is so very nearly fabulous. Unfortunately it suffers from just a little too much of the gorgeous wrought iron work design. Framing the front of the room with it is pure brilliance, but it doesn't need more of the same on the outdoors frame...

and carving it into that mirror is, for me, total overkill. Reminds me of one of those dreadful 1970s co-ordinated bedrooms where everything had to be exactly identical!!

Suggest you change or remove the outdoors frame - thin see-through buttermilk side curtains would look fabulous - and totally change the wooden frame around the mirror. It needs to be a contrast from this design. Then you will have a masterpiece - for sure!!
