Our workflow is really straight forward: after our first meeting with the client we create a storyboard in order to have the necessary feedback, we do this roughly 3 times until everyone is satisfied with the camera angle, materials, the mood and - the most important thing - with the feeling we want to depict.

3D Architettura interview: Ville Kiuru, 3d artist, Finland, rendering, visualization, ArchViz

VILLE KIURU

I dropped out of school when I was obsessed enough with Max and render engines, spending 12-14 hours a day just testing every area. After some time I started getting contacts via the forums where I had posted my renderings to share with others.

During the last years 3D Architettura has become an international community that unites 3D-visualization artists,
architects and designers.
We share interesting stories of success, inspiring renders and practical information about everything connected to architectural visualizations, both offline and realtime.

3D Architettura interviews 3d artist and architect Ahmed Tallal - architectural rendering, archviz, cg, 3d, render.

AHMED TALLAL

My "secret" tool is Vray2SidedMtl. It's a cool way to create realistic leaves for vegetation and, in my opinion, it's better and also faster for rendering than using translucence map.

YURIY BOBAK

For achieving photorealistic results general taste in design is far more important than just a technical knowledge of the software.
