Summer 2016

Between projects and vacations, I’ve had some time to get up to speed with the latest version of the V-ray rendering software and the Blender 3D modeling program. This pair of images are from a model I used both to produce images for a project, and as a way to test some of the neat new features of the software, Chief among them is a much faster rendering engine that cut my computer processing time by almost ten-fold!

This next pair was also rendered in Vray for Blender, used for an exterior scene.

These are some other marketing images I prepared recently. One is for new residential construction, and the other one is a facade renovation for a familiar local Charlottesville retail location.

Urban Chicken Loft

I’ve been working on a fun side-project in my spare time recently. I’ve been tasked by a certain task-master (read: wife) to get a chicken coop designed pronto. While I would also have fun building it, using a contractor neighbor whom I’ve worked with before made the most sense. I had already worked out a basic Sketchup model of the coop, but to get it in the contractor’s hand, I ended up putting a basic working drawing set together as well. And since I can’t resist doing more rendering, I went ahead and generated some photo-montages of how the coop will appear in the backyard. I found lots of useful examples, stories, and basic information from the http://www.backyardchickens.com/ website.

The coop is now finished, with new residents! See below for pics.

End of the year wrap-up, various renders

It’s been a great 2013, and I am looking forward to an awesome new year! Here are a few projects from the last couple months of the year to round out this years’ posts. Again, I have a coffee shop project (see this other one for comparison.) I like how this one came out after the few rounds of client feedback. It’s fun to pop these cafe’s out, they are lively spaces.

Here’s another round of revisions on this one master suite and bathroom remodel that’s getting close to starting construction. The clients were inspired by Italian interior design, hence all the marble. I am also doing the construction documents on this one, working with the architect/ owner.

I’ve done a few renderings previously of this apartment building project. It has gone through a few iterations on materials and colors, I’ll be curious if this is the final color scheme.

This last project is one I started on just before the holidays and will continue through the new year. Right now it’s just work on the lobby/ entrance sequence, but should continue through the rest of the building space. It’s a very dynamic space, so it’s very helpful to the architect to see the way the programmatic elements interact in 3D.
