YOUR ULTIMATE SOURCE OF INFORMATION
ABOUT 3D VISUALIZATIONS AND ARCHITECTURAL RENDERING

LATEST PROJECTS

I started to make my first steps as a designer about 2 years ago and my passion gives me the possibilities to grow up in architectural visualization field. Now I work with Cinema4D for modeling and compositions, rendering is done with Corona Render and Vray. For the post-production, I always use Camera Raw in Photoshop that allows me to treat my renders like real photos.

ID STUDIO

Our target is to achieve photorealistic 3D visualizations for individual clients, companies, large institutions and anyone interested in the 3D industry.

Are you a 3D-artist?
Do you want to share your experience in architectural visualization?

Juan Hiriart

I started working with CG in 2007, I've learned a lot from this work in ten years and still learning a lot every day. I'm a professional architect and a founder of DOD3dstudio since 2015. I like the art that involves this whole arch-viz world and the way it impacts on others. Every project is different to me, every one of them has a special message to deliver and so is the way I face them.
Today we continue our animago Award 2017 series of articles by introducing you the winner in Best Still nomination - 3D visualization artist Marek Denko. We talk about his way in CGI and behind the scenes of creation and development of his latest awarded project, "Her Eventual Hesitation".

Do you provide some services to designers
and visualization artists?

Are you developing a 3d software, a plugin, a digital utility
or an instrument?
Our readers are always curious to learn about new tools that make the work of a 3D-artist or an architect easier and faster.

Hello, my name is Jacinto Monteiro, I graduated as an architect, back in 2001, in Portugal, and started working in this profession for 6 years. In the peak of 2007/8 crisis, with my girlfriend pregnant of my only child, I decided to quit my architectural job and had a fresh start as a digital artist. High risk and drastic decision that changed my life completely, luckily for better.
OKDRAW studio interview for 3D Architettura

OKDRAW

Our names are Hugo Ferreira and Pedro Teixeira, we are an architect and product designer managing the Okdraw Studio in Portugal. We always knew each other since the young age, and when in 2012 we realized that we were both working in the 3D area but in different ways, we decided to merge our knowledge and work towards architectural and product visualization.

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.

For every new project, we try to understand the clients’ needs and to offer him a feedback of solutions and artistic guidelines adapted to the project.
I started working with CG in the 1980's when the TV station I worked at upgraded to a digital Grass Valley video switcher and Chryon Chroma-key system, we used POV-RAY and Caligari True Space.
For me the creation of a project or a render is not just a work with a computer and drawings. The most important for me is to bring satisfaction and happiness to my customers, because the art is a symbiosis of thinking and creating with love.
