Been wanting to do an image of a villa for some time now, so thought I'd have a go modelling up the house I stayed at on my hols a few weeks ago, with a bit of artistic license!

Image is rendered using vray. no photoshop work as yet.

Any comments gratefully received.

idk, technically it's a good render and all, but it's not interesting.... no details to the side of the house really, the water looks a tad off, it all looks dead. no smooth corners too, especially on those chairs.

Hey PS3D,

I think it's a really nice render, although I am still learning I would say that the blue window shutters smacked me in the face as CG, they look very plasticy (sp?) Other than that, I think the pool lining is a bit similar but I like the water! Other than that (as I say I am still really learning) I think it's really nice if a little clean, perhaps it needs to look a little more grubby?

I hope that all sounds ok, looking forward to seeing it after PS.

Stewart Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!

good start. i agree with everything that was said so far. The car is a total distraction imho. it looks 2d like a plane with a picture of the car. Everything has a very blah look to it. i think it needs something to liven up the image. not sure what it's missing, just something isn't making it feel alive and real.

wow very nice

Are the proportions correct, somethings feels wrong (must be eye as well)
The pool area and the blue window shutters give it away as cg,m otherwise very nice.
Seriously, why blue :S Give some variations. One or two closed or something.

As a whole, very nice.

like they said, technically it looks alright, but there are some issues you should check out, take in consideration what they mentioned before and add on top of that more windows to the second floor, it looks like that big wall could bring more light into the house if windowed properly..

nice render in general, good light setup but is it copied from a real house/design? the roof pitch looks very shallow for a tiled roof.

i love it... the main problem is the shutters, put some ware and tare on them, they jump out at you at the moment.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I agree I think the image is too clean as it is. Will work on "dirtying" things up a bit and re-post an image when i get a sec.

I might try and render a nighttime shot aswell.

looks very good but I think it would look much better without the car there and without the "Window doors?" or at least changing them from blue to a wood color but still I think it would be better to remove part or all of them because they are too many and is kinda I dont know .. out of place, the walls old style and that things are more like modern style.

Hello there

beautiful ;3

I think the car's fine where it is, but agree about the blue window covers. Maybe try dark brown. If you're feeling brave, you could try a couple of people by the pool if you can find any at the right angle to superimpose. Love the trees & plant life. Chimney stack should be stone ?

> I think it sticks out (really bad).
As cars tend to do.

I wouldn't have chosen green because it blends into the bushes a little, but I still think it's fine. It adds context to the scene & makes the building feel lived in. You're of course welcome to your opinion, Phil.

"I think the car's fine where it is"

Really A-S. I think it sticks out really bad. it needs to be toned down to take the attention away from it. for me, it reallys draws my eyes to it and doesn't fit the rest of the image. it definatly looks flat and 2 dimensional.

I think the modeling aspect of this scene is fine. Just a bit of post render work to be done and you should have a pretty spiffy image.

At this point there isn't anything you couldn't tweak in Photoshop (PS). If your aiming for a quick promotional thing that you'd put on a brochure, then this looks neat and precise and clear this as this is, its better than a realistic image.

If your aim is realism in its pure and ugly form, you need to: Dumb down the water (it looks to cool in a CG way to be real, reduce the ripples or make them less uniform, include a depth of field effect, fade or distort the pattern on the poolside lounges, (to be real picky) reduce the reflection on the poolside metal handrail, its too cool, and the brickwork needs more bump, I would save the importing of flat foliage till I got into PS unless it was essential for a reflection.

Having said that you haven't started in PS yet, if your smart enough with PS you could have a real pimping photorealistic image.

best of luck.

Thanks for the comments Querymaster.

To be honest I don't have a great deal of experience using photoshop - all i tend to use it for is brightening up/darkening down an image, adjusting contrast, adding people/foliage etc.

I'd be intersted to see what people here can do with the image before I have a go myself...

Just thought I'd post a quick update on this. Had a go at doing a night time shot. Need to play about with my settings to get rid of the noise - but quite pleased with how its looking so far.
Let me know what you think.
