 Artist's Comment
About Me:
I'm a semi-professional Blender enthusiast who has been using Blender for 2 years. I live and work in Gloucestershire, UK and have a growing love for 3D visuals, especially architecture, and a fascination with light. I have some experience with other 3D software but I always come back to Blender3D for its ease of use and user-friendly UI. I am still very much a beginner and love learning.

About "Comfort Zone Design Lobby:"
I wanted to put together an image which could be a re-construction of an old warehouse space in somewhere like Bristol, UK. I wanted the design to be stylish but fun & creative at the same time. A place where design graduates would strive to work, with lots of space and a relaxing atmosphere. 
Once the building itself was modeled, I used free 3D furniture (rather than modelling the furniture myself) and the archimesh for the stairs, though I edited them afterwards. 
The scene itself is fairly basic and the most interesting element to me was playing with the light. I tried many different combinations/methods e.g removing walls/ceiling panels for the sunlight and eventually settled on the dappled spotlights you see in the finished picture. There seems to be no "right" way of working with light, as it is an original image, which is both intimidating & exciting. I use the word "finished" loosely, as there are still many things I would change if I had the motivation to do so. The image was fairly heavily post-processed in Photoshop.
