Artist's Comment
About Me:
My name is Daniel Thul from Uruguay. I ´m working with Blender from 2004 on for Architectural visualization.

About "A Clockwork Orange Tribute - Alex Room:"
It was modeled in Blender 2.62, rendered using Maxwell Render with the amazing script of "nildar" (http://sourceforge.net/projects/bmaxwell), and color graded in GIMP. Models and textures have been created from scratch based in the movie : "A clockwork orange" from Stanley Kubrick.
Some of my works are available at my webpage: www.pixelarq.com.

Reading-Corner
by Emanuele Bernardi
Renderer: Cycles

Artist's Comment
About Me:
I'm Emanuele Bernardi. I'm an Italian CG Artist (or rather a "technician"). I started studying 3D graphic earnestly about 3 year ago, when I discovered Blender. After a year, I found a job as modeler and material creator in a render studio here in Italy. This studio creates interior and furniture renderings. There I learned a lot and I also learned using 3D Studio Max and V-Ray, and some knowledge of Photoshop for post-production and texture creation. Knowing various software has made me keenly aware of Blender's strengths and weaknesses. I always model with Blender, and then I import the models into 3DS Max for rendering.
When Blender's Cycles render engine was released, I immediately started trying it, and I tried to reproduce the studio production workflow with Blender and Cycles to achieve the same photorealistic results obtained with MAX and V-Ray in a similar, easy way. 
What I can say is that Cycles is a very cleaver and versatile render engine but Blender, IMHO, is not yet ready to reproduce all the functions of 3DS Max that are useful for this kind of work, although it has a lot of good features that commercial software do not have.
I'm using this scene (that is larger than what you see in this render) to continue experimenting with Cycles and improve my skills.The most important thing I learned from this work is that taking care of details is the only way to achieve great results.


About "Reading Corner:"
This scene is part of an entire house project I'm making to improve my skills and create a good portfolio. I started it about two year ago, but this is the better render I created since then, thanks to Cycles. I modeled everything of this entire scene (in Blender of course). All the objects in the scene are real objects found on the internet. I prefer to not design new objects, because coping existing gives me better results and I save time. Some texture are created by me and other are free textures found on the net. I lighted this scene with an HDR made by me with a chrome ball and HDR-shop, the free program to manipulate HDRs. I also added a sun lamp aligned with the HDR to increase the direct light.
The experience in my job and the study of a lot of architectural and interior photos gave me the necessary skills to create this composition, where I thought very well for each object position and color, which is very important to obtain a balanced image.
I saved this image in HDR, with a material index and a z-depth passes. Then I post-processed them in Photoshop. HDR format allows me to tweak image levels and contrast very well and preserve a lot of detail. When I'm good with tone-mapping, I convert in 16 bit image and I do the rest of manipulation, which is removing noise, tweak some colors and add effects like DOF and lens distortions.
I think that's all for this image, and I hope to create other images of the rest of the house very soon. Thank for reading!
