Exterior Renders

Caesar Villa Exterior Render in Maya and Mental Ray

I saw this model as a render over the net made with 3d studio max and V-Ray, I tried to achive the same result with Maya and Mental Ray. So I remodel everything looking at existing renders, I had no technical documentation. The exciting part of this job was finding the way to handle millions of polygons, I thanked god for BSP2. The final Render took me about 2 hours at 3000px lat-long on my i7 machines. I don't know who wins between Mental ray vs V-Ray, but I'm pretty happy of my result.

Modern Villa, toon exterior rendering

The project of this modern villa has been made by a very capable young architect, she was looking for an enjoyable representation other than serious realistic render. I tried to mix 2 styles of rendering: realistic and toon. What I get is a pleasant exterior render made with Maya and Mental ray, Angela thanked me this solution!

It took a lot of time understand the physical proprieties I needed to realisticaly simulate the dynamic properties of the swing. I used bullet physics for this task. The final render has been made inside Octane Render 2.52
