View Full Version : Tadao Ando - Row House, Viktor Fretyán (3D)

04 April 2009, 09:59 PM (

Title: Tadao Ando - Row House
Name: Viktor Fretyán
Country: Hungary
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

I had a day off from all the work so I opened one of my books and modeled a scene of Tadao Ando's first project, a row house.

Modeled and rendered in max, rendered with vray and of course a lot of photoshopping!

If you have the time write a few words! I'd like to know what you think! Thank you!

Nice render. Good shading.

I also like the fact that the lamp isnt hanging in the middle of that hole... makes things like that look much more realistic :thumbsup:

Hi Radic , another awesome render here :)
I like the dirt textures , do you add them in post processing ?

04 April 2009, 09:09 AM
Awesome work Viktor. I was very inspired by some of your previous work, and I found this article of your on Evermotion ( explaining your post-processing in Photoshop, which I found extremely handy for the proyect I was currently working on. I learnt Maya, and Photshop sort of came along, a bit at a time. Well, your tutorial gave me a good push and I tried out a lot of your tips, which I really enjoyed. So thank you.

It's really handy getting to know how other people work, and you start to understand the work around you, and how it was possibly made. I've become a bg fan of your work, and will excitedly look forward to some more awesome pieces from you.

great rendering, what vray color mapping did you use ? and how did you light the scene, and what type of light did you use for the yellow interior light

04 April 2009, 03:56 PM

04 April 2009, 04:00 PM
naaaah its not mental ray. its vray. daylight scene with exponential color mapping night scene with reinhard.

lit by 2 vray planes: one is just above the madel pointing down in a cold color and another one in an angle pointing down with a warmer color.

Man this is some serious work.

Well deserved front page!:buttrock:
you are getting closer and closer!
Maybe the cgtalk admins break their ice and be more friendly with architectural images.

04 April 2009, 05:39 AM

04 April 2009, 09:27 PM
Tadao Ando's work is by far my favourite and u trully have captured it;s essence perfectly, awesome work 5*

ur post production is by far the best ive seen in arch visualizations

05 May 2009, 09:26 PM
Real nice, I like the light reflection on the floor.

05 May 2009, 10:04 AM
Congrats dude, you explain a real history with your stills, you´re are tell me moods, sensations, colors..... WOW! Just amacing

05 May 2009, 03:03 PM
Very nice and minimal.

05 May 2009, 03:40 PM
I'm fairly new to all this, I just model and render in Sketchup using vray for my architecture presentations. I wonder how would one proceed to make a dirt map in photoshop? What command did you use? it definitively makes all the difference.

This is one of the best images I've seen. Congrats

Hi there, just found your portfolio while browsing, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by this render, as I am studying architecture and own a few books, one of which includes the original image. Astounding level of realism, and great attention to detail. Nice job.

12 December 2009, 09:56 PM
Excellent work. I love the contrast and the atmosphere.

02 February 2010, 06:58 PM
I really like your style and your scenes. And it´s so cool that you are sharing your techniques with us!

I hope I get this right: Köszönöm szépen!

Take care / Johan
