Astonishingly, all CG, and entirely created by one person.

Vray, and After Effects.

Since you wont believe it is actually CG, check the breakdown-

"This is a FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view where main subjects are already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes surreal".

looks 8bit game graphics type quality to me...you know sinclair spectrum-ish

Fantastic work! :)

There are a few CG-giveaways, but I wouldn't call them distracting. He seems to be a pretty amazing artist!

Well, all of it is pretty amazing, but those shots of the 'old camera' are flawless.

Yeah, Vray, and some seriously inspired work and eye for detail. I think this really shows not only Alex's great eye and attention to detail, but it also shows how powerful Vray can be. I remember going to evermotion in 2005-2006 and seeing the Vray work and I just threw up my hands and said "ok, I am learning that".

I am no where near as good as Alex (may never be) because his talent lies beyond just having a nice render engine, it truly goes into the realm of deep thought and experience, but its nice that there is an engine that can really perform when you need it to. It was the main thing that made me get into max. Now I use it in Maya in my daily work and can't say I would want otherwise.

;)

gah I am getting off on a tangent. I just mean to say the obvious. Alex Roman is really a CG phenomenon. Even without talking tech you can see his vision is really masterful. :D

I've been following him for some years now (I don't do any architecture but the guys I work with do a lot and they showed me some of his stuff some time ago) and he has a background in photography...that really helps a lot.

Ah, and being an artist helps too! ;)

His work is simply amazing.

I saw this posted on CGT a while back and if it were on any other site other then a CG site I would have believed it real too. He has some other works that are just as beautiful!

like i said in another thread, this basically is not due Vray, but rather post work.
check out Gerardo's posts on the subject.

but no doubt, Vray does give some nice renders...

beautiful work, absolutely!
