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.
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.
Here comes the second part of our new series of articles devoted to the artists interviewed on 3D Architettura during the previous years. Let's see together new projects of the best CG and ArchViz artists from Portugal chosen by 3D Architettura editorial team.
I’m self-taught, so back to those days when I started it was complicated to get some course in our country, so I didn’t know exactly where to begin, I started searching the web for tutorials or online courses and until now this is the way I learn, it’s a long learning path but it’s great, almost every day I learn something new.
Innitially, when I started to work on this image, my main purpose was a similar look than the original photo, but in the development process i've started to dreaming about which were the feelings i would like to feel in a room like this one, and then I've started to work for a very calm environment, with a really soft light and a peaceful atmosphere, simulating a little bit the lighting of a winter sunny morning.
