Presentation board workflow

nouhaila zergane

I rendered in better resolution earlier and tried photoshopping i just couldn’t find the right background picture since my I&F Picture is not fit for use :/

Did NOT turn out as planned , but getting to this was already too frustrating , i just gave up x)

    Excellent sketching, and a nice composition! Also love the “story” you have for each of the renderings. Looking forward the next iteration. I would suggest as a next step:
    – set up the views for the two renders (maybe in two different viewports so you always have both views “on screen” in Rhino).
    – sun + sky (maybe you’d want to have different sun direction for each view to look better)
    – render preview, low resolution (Render Settings > Resolution > Viewport).
    – post the renders so I can comment :)
    Great start!

    First round of renders: looking very good! A few comments:
    – Maybe you could use slightly more perspective. Which may mean: come “closer” to the building, but use wider Lens Length (smaller number: lens length is in the “Properties” panel which shows when no object is selected).
    – In the second rendering, what’s the dark zone seen in the middle of the building? This is probably where more perpsective could help understand the building better.
    – Also, maybe try to rotate Sun a bit in order to show more shadows/volume of the building.

    If you get stuck with the background, try making the foreground (trees, people) first – this will be more visible anyway :)
    Then you maybe will realize the background is so “occluded” by the building and your front plane of trees, that it may not be super important what image you use (in addition to that, background image can be very faded towards white, so it will be even less visible).
    Cool work, thanks for posting! :)

    Haha, this is getting really good, but what was exactly frustrating? Let me know the worse part, I may be able to help :)

    Ok, here comes the help. I think you can find perfect backgrounds for your project if you search Google for “meadow” or something like that, just make sure you choose the “Size>Large”. See examples:

    I’m not quite sure what your site is, but probably you can find among dozens of images online :)
    Or “fake” a bit in order to look good (as soon as you don’t choose something that’s COMPLETELY different than your site, ie. Sahara desert :))

    Btw- I would suggest, after you find a good background, to increase contrast to your image (you can put Levels adjustment layer on top of everything, or even increase the contrast by using Color Balance like in tutorials). Also, it feels that your house works better with a sky that is bright (your renderings have too dark blue sky).
    Cool, now get some sleep and in the morning find the cool bg image and replace the background, finishing everything in 15 minutes :)

    And yep if you want the PSD where I made those rough sketches above:

    yes thanks a lott , that’s exactly the kind of bg i was looking for but i’m still struggling for some reason , i guess things just rarely turn out as intended :)

    2nd attempt: This is looking great! Now just finish the rest of the poster, and you’re done :)
