Feedback for an Arch Viz piece


Hi, I’m new to this site and I’m not quite sure yet if I’m asking in the right place, but I was wondering if I could get some feedback from fellow artists on this architectural visualisation project I’ve been working on. It’s just a scene of a modern bathroom and I’ve gotten to that point where I’ve looked at and analysed it so much that I can’t really rely on my own judgment of its quality anymore, you know? I modelled and textured everything myself but I would say I’m at intermediate level in both modelling and texturing. So I was wondering if I could get some external advice and feedback on it. I would like to know what I can do to just make it look more photorealistic, as well as reduce the noise in the render. I also know my interior lighting is not too good and if I could get some advice on that along with the rest, I’d be very grateful. I’m working in Maya 2018 and rendering with Arnold. Thank you very much in advance :slight_smile:


I am fairly new to 3d animation and have no professional experience so I don’t know how valuable my opinion is. . Maybe it’s good enough the way it is?

I personally thought the lighting was great. Maybe even a little too bright, because bathrooms don’t typically look super bright in real life. Maybe a softer lighting?

… maybe change the angle and perspective slightly more towards the perspective of first walking in the room.

I think the best advice I could give with my extremely limited experience would be to walk away from it for a few days or even weeks (if there isn’t a practical application where the asset is needed) … and come back and look at it again later and see if it’s even worth changing. Maybe change a few things and call it good for now and keep working.

The peeps on my end thought it looked good. Good work.


I recently read that R + T + A = >1

Check into this… the lighting bounces being too high or source lighting brightness might also be a factor in static/distortion of quality.

I’d personally love to see this piece with a little softer lighting… it might bring out the shower area a bit as well if the dynamic range wasn’t stretched so far - or maybe just add a little ambient light in the shower area.

Just a few ideas that came to mind. I love the architectural style and materials for sure.
