Hi guys, first of all I want to thank CGarchitect and Jeff Mottle for giving me the opportunity to present a "making of" for my image - The Joukowsky Institute interior. The main idea when doing this project was to create a case study with an artistic and dramatic mood and to fill out a little free time between work deadlines. I think it's refreshing for me.
The Joukowsky is housed in the newly refurbished Rhode Island Hall in the center of the campus of Brown University, USA. The architect is Anmahian Winton. I first collected reference images for this interior from the Internet.
For the model I didn't need to do that much because I found a model on the Internet. I just added some accessories to match the reference photos and made some modifications for the floor. Here is a screen shot of the model and floor modeling settings.
As I mentioned before I wanted an artistic and dramatic mood in my image. To do this I set my main lighting using a standard direct light without any other light sources because I wanted to control the image from camera and use GI for the ambient color. Here is the screen shot for both lighting and camera settings.
That's all guys, I hope you will learn something from reading this "Making Off". There are no definite settings to produce a good looking image, just practice and trying to give it your best.
Feel free to give your comments and sorry if I missed something in my explanations.
Thanks and warm regards from Indonesia.
