Rue de Seine, Viktor Fretyán (3D)



Title: Rue de Seine
Name: Viktor Fretyán
Country: Hungary
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

Hi,
Here is an image I have been working on for quite some time now. I think it's finished now.
My plan was to make more images of different streets and places of the same city all in the same taste like this but with completely different scenes, different stories. I don't know when will I have the time or the energy to start doing something like this again...But I do plan to go on with this and make a series.

At work there's always a (usually tight) deadline so we do the majority of work in Ps cause its just faster. Before that I was doing mostly everything in 3d. So this time I wanted to make something that has a lot of both sides. Almost everything here is modeled. And I tried to make it as accurate to reality as I could. (thanks to Google streetview and many photos of course) The 3d part took like 75 percent. It just seemed never ending...

I think I also have to say a few things about the story of the image as well. I tried to do some kind of a big project like I did before but in the way I do work recently. Which is to show buildings in an original way. But not just randomly. To show something specific to the place. So I first thought of the water in the street (cause of the streetname). Then after some research I found photos of a great flood in the city and I thought this mixture of old and new would work really great here. I think this theme fits the place very well. All the houses are how they looked like a 100 years ago. But still there are cars, neon signs, wires, antennas. The guys in the foreground fit well I think. It's kind of like a comedic relieve. Bottom line: don't take it too seriously.

All of this is just unnecessary info. The image should work or not by first glimpse. Like always. Without any explanation or excuses...So if you've read through all this crap you're a hero :) Thanks for your time!

There is one thing really bothering me though: I recently discovered the animation done by Olivier Campagne of Arte Factory Lab that is based on the same idea. (if you haven't seen it yet go look it up, it's really great actually...) So you could imagine how devastated I was seeing that after like 5-6 months of work on this haha but that's life I guess...As a matter of fact one of the shots is like 100 meters away from this street corner awwww...I was so sad...

But enough talk! Let me know what you think!
Viktor

It would have been nice to see some subtle ripples in the water trailing the boat.
Other than that it's an amazing image, outstanding work.

The 1910 version looks strange with the cars and traffic signs. How much 3d is in the colour version?(not in %, but what exactly?)
