Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering

Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering

Typically, I don't get overly technical on my blog which I can, so I am going to get a little nerdy now. For my exterior architectural renderings, I use V-Ray from Chaos Group and I have nothing but good things to say about the software and developers. Although no software is perfect, V-Ray is dang near close. The Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering has all the bells and whistles with a ton of displacement,  trees, bushes, grass, and rendered out at 5k resolution. Without having to hold back or spend hours optimizing the Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering rendered in less than two hours, which is remarkable.

Since I will be asked, here are my computer specs.

  • Dell Precision T7910 36-Core Dual E5-2696 v3 Max 3.8GHz
  • 128GB RAM
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB

I don't have a large render farm and The Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering was rendered in less than two hours on my single workstation, which although is a beast; the render time is amazingly fast. At one point I had a ten workstation render farm, but I was spending far too much time being an I.T. guy and not being a creative guy.  Basically, I stuffed those ten workstations into the one and I now can spend my days creating architectural renderings like The Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering.

Other software used to create The Bohland Residential Exterior Rendering are the following.

I was approached by a marketing coordinator, who was hired to market these house plans. The marketing coordinator crawled the web for a while looking for someone who could nail some architectural illustrations for him. Now, as you know, there are thousands of architectural illustrators on the web and to be hired amongst all the other talented artist is always an honor. 

The initial sales push used some watercolors and were successful. The company was making a profit and they wanted to up their game with my photorealistic renders. I hope that they see a great increase in revenue because of my work.

I really like this house. Not only is it out in the woods, but I love the contrasting wood colors. The twilight shot was a challenge, but hopefully, I pulled it off. I have successfully done twilight renderings many times in the past, but for some reason, this one presented a challenge.

Oh, someday Spring will show up here, in the North Woods of Minnesota. Until then, I can live vicariously through these Florida architectural renderings.

Arroyo House Rendering

Arroyo House Rendering

Each project is unique and has a life of their own; as always, the possibilities are endless.  There really isn't a recipe for success and what works for one image doesn't guarantee the success for another. The Arroyo house rendering was an example of what worked for the last image didn't work for this one, however, after spending a day tweaking light and shadow, I think it turned out great.

What a neat house, I'll take it! Hopefully, at least that was my goal, the perspective family feels the same when they see these architectural renderings. These renderings were created to sell a property that is currently under extensive remodeling.

Montgomery Ward Building Rendering

Montgomery Ward Building Rendering

What can I say, what a cool opportunity? About a month ago I was asked to recreate the Montgomery Ward Building, in Chicago Illinois, to be used on the lobby walls. The building has gone through many changes over the years and it is now luxury condominiums. There are only known low-resolution photos, so it was my job to virtually recreate the building from these low-resolution photos.

The Carolyn Home Rendering

The Carolyn Home Rendering

White siding in a daylight scene is always a challenge. To get this to work I have to make my material pretty dark; I think you would be surprised.  White, in RGB, is 255, 255, 255, however, white here is 140, 140, 140, which is a little brighter than a neutral gray.  I like to have a nice balance of light and shadow, so to keep the darks from being too dark and the lights being too light is a balancing act. I think I pulled it off!

Garden Cottage Renderings

Garden Cottage Renderings

Upper Minnesota is where I call home, however, 99% of my work comes from every other place on the globe, except my home state.  However, a local resort contacted me in regards to some marketing material they needed for a new development that they are working on. 

Here, are the images to this set. My goal was to create images that told a story, a story of a garden house in the woods.
