Hi all, this is my last job, made in max 5 with Radiosity Render. The plants and the background are pictures, i set them in photoshop. Everything else is modelled. Thanks for comment.

Great render the only thing i can critique are the missing shadows from the plant on the wall.

09 September 2004, 07:54 PM
The TV screen is like a mirror. That would make it tough to watch.
Lookin good though.

09 September 2004, 08:09 PM
Always like your renders. Great job on this one!

09 September 2004, 08:17 PM
Great work. It looks really real.

09 September 2004, 11:15 PM
Great work. How long did it take to render? And as a reply to someone elses post, i think the TV is accurate, there is lots of light here.

09 September 2004, 03:19 AM
Nice work! Was this concept from a photo, or did you design the entire room?
Love to see a wire, or shot w/out the textures. :bounce:

09 September 2004, 09:13 AM
Awesome render! How long did it tae you (modelling and render time) with all the heavy reflections?

09 September 2004, 11:48 AM

thank you all, i'm very glad about the feed back.

09 September 2004, 05:40 PM
i like it,very nice.
what rendering in this image?

09 September 2004, 05:49 PM
Wowee!! That's awesome!!

re the Tv screen is a mirror - that's why you gotta close the curtains... with the bright light coming in like that from the windows, it would be that reflective.

09 September 2004, 06:27 PM
radiosity? i cannot believe it.
I never seen a render so realistic with radiosity solution! congrats!

09 September 2004, 08:32 PM
That is realistic close to perfection , great render.

Mando bem.

09 September 2004, 07:26 PM
My only real crit would be that the city background is far to high contrast. It brings it foreward. Blurring isn't needed, but deffinatly lowering the contrast would help.

Great image, btw.

I agree with this, the perspective on it also seems a bit off, maybe it looks better when you wrap the background around a spherical object. And maybe add a little blue haze to it, or just to the buildings the furthest away.
Other than that, perfect!

09 September 2004, 09:15 PM
congrats on making frontpage.

09 September 2004, 10:25 PM

in your sofa
09 September 2004, 02:27 AM

09 September 2004, 03:19 AM
great work i love the lighting and materials!

09 September 2004, 03:23 AM
GRAGH! Stop posting pictures and saying it's your render! :p

Really. It's so damn photorealistic!

09 September 2004, 11:31 AM

Thanks about the replys. I'm using a Pentium 4, 3.00 Ghz with 1024 RAM ddr, the render duration was 9 hours in 3000 x 2200 px.

09 September 2004, 09:30 AM
Wow, amazing. I would like to see the lightrig onthis one. I also wonder how you think when you set the light for a scene like this.

09 September 2004, 01:13 PM
cool lighting...:thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 02:40 PM
Incredible!!! fantastic work! :thumbsup:

Thanks so much. Here is a wire:

I agree its a nice render, helped by glass and chrome but I look

beyond that and try to say what I believe is not quite right with
the image to help the artist.

- I can see a full reflection of the wall table in the marble floor
but not the plant next to it nor its shadow on the wall.

- The Window frames have no thickness so are not structurally sound.
This high up I expect them a lot thicker, and the glass in them. Thats
why the city looks like a lightbox with an over-exposed graphic.

Only one or two little things I might change are -

- cushions on the sofa ; makes it more homely not a showroom
- something in the fireplace as it looks too bare
- and Ive never seen so accurately laid out chairs around a table ; move em slightly
- and remove the hard shadow of the glass shelf above the tv - lightsource ?
Good work. I would like to see a night time version.

09 September 2004, 05:00 AM
Great Work! It looks photoreal!

The only thing that looks off to me is the reflection on the table's legs on the far wall under the mirror, they seem to be reflecting something that isn't there...

Other than that, great job!

09 September 2004, 05:32 AM
how come that every time I visit any thread in here, I can't see the picture ?
what happen to me ? is there something wrong ?

09 September 2004, 09:13 AM
I love the rendering and the great style you put in it.. great art.. laterz...

09 September 2004, 12:31 PM
Very pretty! It's really static tough. I mean chairs are perfectly aligned etc. Id'like to see a render where you can tell people have lived in the room. Very good job still!

09 September 2004, 07:58 PM
Not a complaint, but every time I see the table under the large mirror I think Ironing Board. It is a great illustration.

Speaking of mirrors, you must like them as there might be too many for my liking.


09 September 2004, 10:49 PM
Absolutely Stunning!

great job,
this is commercial?

Amilton Diesel
10 October 2004, 12:39 PM
Thank you all so much again. I agree with some mistakes you find in the image, like the flat background and the empty fire place. Yes, the image is comercial, made for a high standard undertaking. I wish to do it better if I had a longer deadline. :)

10 October 2004, 12:57 PM
wish I have a house like this.....cooly cooly

10 October 2004, 04:00 PM
Very nice! :)

Nice real...great!

10 October 2004, 01:37 PM
Nearyly perfect. One of the more realistic interior rendering i ve seen. Don't like much the tv hw. It would be interesting to show render times approx. Don't?

10 October 2004, 11:50 PM
Nice room, nice work.

10 October 2004, 05:08 PM
Great render!!! very realistic!!! :applause:

10 October 2004, 12:44 AM
É realmente gratificante ver que apesar de tudo, os artistas brasileiros ainda são os melhores..

Belo trabalho...
Quem sabe um dia ainda chegarei lá..

10 October 2004, 08:04 AM
Very good
Very good Very good Very good

10 October 2004, 08:18 AM
Fascinating render! This is the most realistic interior rendering I've seen, although I agree with the errors mentioned by others.

I like this design, can you tell me who was the interior architect?

You might upload some other picts from this project!

11 November 2004, 11:59 PM
Could you move a chair or ok it's all fine.

11 November 2004, 01:03 AM
Really great photorealistic render. I like the materials.

But in a way it looks also a little strange for me, because:
Outside is a bright day. Inside a bright and yellow (light bulb) light. The windows do not look like as if they were too small to illuminate this room without any electric light on at this day and time. And even with the ceiling light on the daylight would be the most dominant light. You can check this in every similar room, on a bright day turn on and off the ceiling light (especially bulbs). It does not change the color impression of the room that much.
It would help to lower the contrast of the BG image to reduce this impression. But I think you want the view over the skyline look beautiful and you want a clear and shiny day. So the BG image is perfect.
So I think the shiny day and the ceiling light together is a little paradox in a way. Imagining this is a real room with this great view outside and I have to take a Photo of it I would not turn the ceiling light on (even never for a commercial shooting of the appartment, because it gives the impression the windows could be too small and the room gets not enough light). Daylight and artificial light looks strange together in this situation. But need light for the furniture and stuff because it's a backlight situation. To get light on the chairs backsides I would use a softlight or reflector from behind/beside the camera.

I'm really impressed about your great work, because it's very photorealistic in material and lighting (distribution). Just the mood of the lighting situation is a little strange. Maybe that's just my impression.

All in all great work...

11 November 2004, 09:17 AM
Overall its a great render - one of the best Ive ever seen...

...however, Ive never seen a TV-screen be as reflective as that one, its like a mirror and most TVs have dark screens that usually give a blurry reflection.

Second, all the chairs etc seem VERY aligned - as if youve snapped them - theyre all standing perfectly rotated towards the table, at the same distance next to eachother. If you randomly rotate them a degree or two and move them slightly so theyre not perfectly placed, I think it'll enhance the realism even more.

But once again, great job.

11 November 2004, 02:07 PM
Cool. Looks just like a living room. I can't believe I'm just now seeing this.

12 December 2004, 02:37 PM
Like very much!!

12 December 2004, 09:39 AM

06 June 2005, 12:46 PM
That's one hell of a render. Great job, 4 stars from me :)

09 September 2005, 09:45 PM
Wow! Great work, I think the reflections in the mirrors and tv and the glass table are really awesome.
