Enrico is back again with another amazing set of new renders!
If your top notch render has not been chosen yet, don't be discouraged. The candidates for the Render of the Week Awards are usually screened for proofs of concrete artistic and 3D skills. So post more renders that prove that your work is not a single happy accident.
How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please have in mind that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top notch works published by artists and studios. If such work does not appear during a given week, this award is not being given to anyone. So please submit your best work to www.blenderartist.org or to the Member's Gallery of this site, or Contact Us to show where your work is available on the internet. It doesn't have to be a Blender render, internal or Cycles. Any other render engine is fine as long as Blender was used as a part of your workflow.
So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org introduces to you the winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of September 29, 2014: Enrico Cerica.
Title: "Furniture Store"
Genre: Architectural Visualization
About "Furniture Store:"
During those last years I realized that I created quite many models. For this new personal project I choose to put some of them in a furniture store and I used an old industrial building for that with few re-factoring and keeping the old concrete base environment.
As usual everything was modeled with Blender and rendered with Octane Render. In such a complex environment I contemplated a lot of renders so I decided to use only the Direct Light Ambient Occlusion kernel to keep the rendering time under 1h, due to lack of indirect light with DL AO, some post-pro was required to get a better lightning and all in all I'm quite satisfied with the result.
The rendering time was from 30 min. to 1 hr. depending on the scene complexity and resolution. Some images was rendered in 1200x1600 (portrait) and for landscape 2560x1440 and 4000x2000. The scene is lit with a sunlight and HDR map.
