Having the material ID channel has been an immense help in compositing images in post-process. This is a tool that allows you to mask out a material and replace it with a suitable texture. I thought I would share my steps in making this image using the material ID and Alpha channel. Step 1. select […]
Congratulations to Milestone Partners on the acceptance of their re-zoning application for the Lochlyn Hill development. I’m glad I got to work on the design part! It was the back and forth on the proffers that proved the biggest hurdle for the project. Here are some of the supporting images I prepared for the application. […]

With my interest in photography, I like to find the ways I can blur the line (so to speak!) between a computer generated image and a photograph. When a computer rendering is generated, it […]

There were some big advances this past year in the software I use, which along with improved hardware, allowed me to deliver some great work. Besides my 3D modeling and rendering, I […]
I had the opportunity to help Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville showcase their latest neighborhood development. This was one of their upcoming projects highlighted in their fall fundraiser, the Rake-a-thon. The aerial views were rendered in V-Ray for Sketchup 3.6
