Child Playset Renderings

Child Playset Renderings

How fun, playset renderings!  I have done many of these renderings over the years and they are always a nice break from some of the mammoth house renderings I work on. These were rendered with each material masked into their own layer on a transparent background. The owner has a photographer who will superimpose these over a photo and the playsets without swings, where swings should be, will paste photos of children swinging. 

The play set renderings were rendered on a plane, which allows me to render shadows on a transparent background, so when the playset rendering is superimposed on the photo, the shadow will be there, too.

Sanctuary Residence Spring Renderings

Sanctuary Residence Spring Renderings

A couple months ago I was asked to do some Fall renderings, which I did and they turned out great! Last week I was asked to create some Spring renderings for the same project. Here they are.

ARCX Light Fixture Product Renderings

ARCX Light Fixture Product Renderings

If you have followed me for any amount of time you know that I do mainly architectural renderings. Actually, I have been creating architectural renderings for about 25 years, however, I do occasionally wander outside of my wheelhouse and do other things. Here, I was asked to illustrate some really cool lighting fixtures called ARCX lights. These product renderings will be used in brochures to market their product. They are really a cool idea. The lights come in sections and can be assembled in almost any configuration that you can imagine.

Bear Park House Renderings

Bear Park House Renderings

What a great project from a great Canadian client. These renderings, like all of my renderings, is an exercise in patience.  Although my workflow doesn't change, each project seems to have its own personality. Some are easy going and some are very temperamental; this one was easy going. From displacement to high-quality bushes and trees, too high-quality cars, depth of field, and environmental fog.  Even though the architectural rendering has all the bells and whistles, the scene was stable and rendered relatively quickly.

Home2 - Joplin Mo Rendering

Home2 - Joplin Mo Rendering

During the early 90's I worked as an illustrator for a hotel/motel design/build architectural firm. This, Home2 rendering, is for Joplin, Mo where I traveled for my early 90's position.  It was a pleasure to render this building and it brough back some good memories.

Kellogg Retreat Rendering

Kellogg Retreat Rendering

The stars were aligned for this architectural rendering. Although I added a lot of information, rendering times were great; at 4K these stills rendered out in 1/2 per still.

The Capri Interior Renderings

The Capri Interior Renderings

Over the past years, I have created 100's of exterior architectural renderings and this year alone, I am closing in on that number with my interior architectural renderings. Like my exterior renderings, interior renderings take a special skill and attention to detail. Technically, interiors are a pain to render, especially since most American homes have small window openings.  Getting all the natural light into the small opening is a computer nightmare. I compensate with artificial light, but the natural light looks so much nicer and with the right HDRI, the colors are nice a subtle.

Goodbye Uncanny Valley

Goodbye Uncanny Valley

Goodbye Uncanny Valley

It’s 2017 and computer graphics have conquered the Uncanny Valley, that strange place where things are almost real... but not quite. After decades of innovation, we’re at the point where we can conjure just about anything with software. The battle for photoreal CGI has been won, so the question is... what happens now?

Ludlow Row Nashville Rendering

Ludlow Row Nashville Rendering

Nashville is booming and I am happy to be apart of it. Over the past several years I have completed a dozen architectural renderings for builders, architects, and developers in Nashville Tenessee. It's a beautiful part of our great country, so I know why people are moving there.
