Most of the regulars here might still remember the amazing previz artwork Muharraqi Studios did of the Bahrain WTC in Lightwave. The building is still under construction.

here 's a link to their gallery : http://www.muharraqi-studios.com/muharraqi_gallery.php?cat=ARCHITECTURE&id=40

I happened to be in Bahrain last week and couldn't resist taking a picture of the actual building as it stands now.

Congrats to Khalid (http://www.newtek.com/forums/member.php?u=17199), you were spot on with the renders !

Wow Bytehawk,

Those images look great! It's cool how you almost have the same angles as our renders.

Wish you had contacted us while you were here, we could have all been in the picture!!

Thanks for remembering the original renders. Here are the latest ones we did

those images are photographs man - oustanding detail and observations of light. what sort of fee would an archi viz co. charge for that kind of detail. thing is i work archi vis in the uk and fees seem to be getting more comercial and competative. architects are getting their own 3d guys in (producing poor vis work) but they get by and consequently drive down the fee structure for specialist companies like ours. outstanding work i only hope your company was rewarded in relation to your efforts. let me know, and very well done:thumbsup:

I currently do construction drawings mostly.
While visiting an engineer at an arch company, I brought along my last arch viz.
The architects liked it and I figured I might get some work there. A few months later, I found out that they hired a guy for full time 3d viz work. He had minimal experience using the program and had no real experience doing arch viz. So his work was not very good. Kind of sad looking really.


Oh yeah, and great work Khalid!

Khalid,
Sure will contact you next time i'm around. This was quite a blitz visit, I was scouting for locations for a local company who wants to do some filming abroad so timing was very tight. I took this cruise along Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Fajairah, Dubai etc to get a quick impression of the region and what it has to offer specifically to very a tight budget production. I met some really cool folks, super cooperative btw.

The reason I really posted this here was to show how correct those renders really are (lens flare included !). It was like : WOW !!!! this I gotta show my LW buddies.
