inspring space. I do agree the comments, the scale of the books easily affect the space


That’s sick, quite impressive.


surreal scale…impressive.

Hey! Great image! Stunning! Im swedish and would love to see stockholms main libarary like that :wink: Would you like to share your scene setup? Especially the lights! Did you mix it with any photos?-Timo


I’m a library fetishist so this gets a big :thumbsup: from me. Nice concept and composition, well done.


Original ! I really like the design concept. The render is great, but be careful of the definition of your texture on the foreground at the bottom. It’s a bit stretched.

Good work, beau boulot ! :wink:



wow, amazing concept. so many books! i agree about the texture definition on the lower concrete though; it’s too blurry / stretched. but overall, awesome work.
