My First Exterior...An office
show user profile  CAD Monkey
Hi Guys,

Well in order to add stuff to my portfolio to help with either getting freelance work in arch viz or to get a full time job I thought it was about time I tried to model a full building.

Here is the image I want to replicate:

it's a vacant office which was only finished a few weeks ago, so this seemed as good a place as any to start... Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!

if you intend to model this make sure you 'interest' it up. it's a very plain standard british office block which will always need a make over. thats where you come in :)

It does seem to have a bit of a look of a render, albeit a very good one. Should be a decent one to try and replicate though.

Here is where I am so far:

The main floor needs work to take into account the return on the nearest wall, and the others were simply thrown in so will be remodelled. I have also thought of a better way to do the steels separating the floors, so updates as and when.

Constructive crits welcome.

Cheers,

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

solid start. not much to crit at this stage really. the lighting and texturing will make or break this piece for me

for me, the glass will make or break this image... hard to get right... would be a better reference if it was taken on a sunny day... good luck.

chris- how is the glass going to be hard? just put an a&d glass on it, and use a hdri?

glass is just something i found the most challenging to look right when i started doing arch renders.

Here's a quick update from today:

I've literally thrown some very basic material colours onto the brickwork etc. but they need loads more work. I found a better way to model the exposed RSJ's so re-did those, and worked a bit on the floors etc. I don't really have anything in the way of measurements so I'm just working to guesses that seem about right.

I've never worked with HDRi's before, so that'll be something to find some tutorials on as I go...

I think it could come on well though. My goal is to model the exterior and then get some interior shots with office furniture installed...

Thanks for all the replies guys!

Stewart

PS: I've just noticed that I've got far too much of a return on the brick walls nearest to the camera - oh well, something to fix tomorrow!! Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!
