Forest Refuge, Alex Roman (3D)

Title: Forest Refuge
Name: Alex Roman
Country: Spain
Software: VRay

Hello there! :)

No posting for ages! Well, i would like to share my last personal work. It's a Satoshi Okada project called "Forest Refuge". My project (cg) itself has a several of POV showing three different time of a day (or weather).
I liked the idea since long time ago. It shows a truly sense of the art of architecture with the surrounding enviroment. In fact it has been a botanic exercise for me...

And now, some tech spec:

3DsMax, Vray (1.5), AE and Onyxtree (i'm in love with it BTW...)

Of course (as always) C&C are warmly welcome...

Of course (as always) C&C are warmly welcome... :P

Some latests words:

"Nature cannot be made by a human being." The definition of nature has been a truth since the ancient Greek philosophy, and even in Japan...
...naturata is represented as a black building itself built up from the ground. The blackness is ascribed to the lava in the memory of the site, which Mt. Fuji used to be an active volcano in the ancient times...
..."black on black" requires a delicate sense for feeling nature, trivial transformations of shadows on the black screen... Satoshi Okada

oh-my-god... That's amazing!
It has that 'old' photography feel over it, and I mean that as a compliment!

Two minor things; at the closer-ups on the grass, it's all stiff upwards. And on one render tree-branch connection is a bit 'hard'. But as I said,.. these are really minor things.

The depth of field is perfect!
I love it!

there are a couple things that catch my eye...but I have to work real hard to catch them which I consider a good thing -they are terrific.

The small tree without leaves near the building kind of distracting in the first two views, the hard shadow line in the foreground on the second image that looks like it should be treetops, and the branching previously mentioned. The mood of all the views also feels like an interior to me, like the world ends outside that first line of trees at the edge of the clearing.

All things considered though I just wish you'd stop, so the rest of us don't feel so bad.

now, this is... incredible... I believe this is BY FAR the most photo-realistic render I have ever seen in my goddamn life! Not only that, there's this... poetic beauty in every single frame.
the stillness, the peace, the "smell" of green!
felicitaciones, alex, realmente se nota la dedicación y la minuciosidad de los detalles en todos los aspectos de la imagen.
