View Full Version : Victorian House

Hi all! Here's another house, victorian style, render with LW and the smartIBL plugin. Grass is FiberFX (finally I like his illustration look).


I guess that trees could be better integrated...and maybe that fences on foreground are distracting from the house...but well hope you still like it :)

Here is the reference picture I took:


And a link to the high resolution render:


Comments and crits more than welcome! :)

The model looks very cool, you may want to work on the colours little bit (look a bit cartoony) and shading on the trees is a bit flat.

Good job!

Thank you for replying Soth, I agree the house model is not too bad (indeed I think it's the only thing in the picture that haven't to be changed :p ). I missed my work to make a realistic picture, and in an other hand I'm not too disturbed by the illustration look of this one.

Trees were the most difficult part to render, mainly cause I had to render them each time I change the texture (thanks to limited region)...and after many changes, I just lost my patience...I think I REALLY have to keep more time on environment.

Here's an other version by the way, less color mainly, it didn't fix the problems of this picture, but maybe it's a bit less "cartoony"

The grass doesn't look that bad for it being fiberfx although it still has that fiber like look to it. Nice model. :thumbsup:

Its really, really nice and much better than last one!

I would add some details to pavement texture and you have small but nasty black triangle on the laft bottom corner. Fix that and you done. ;)

I have to agree, the grass looks excellent. But the whole picture has a blueish tint, maybe the sky is to saturated. Also the veranda can benefit from more light, how many bounces have you used ?

You should add more trees, especially to cover the backround. If the trees are 3D modells just empty the scene and render one of the trees alone with the same light settings, than use this picture as a 2D clipmapped tree. You wont see any difference if the 2D trees are only in the backround.

You'd think they don't own a lawn mower :) The grass loks nice alright...but it's VERY long :)
