Venom

Well, it’s being a boring weekend. I’ve started a quick archviz project and I’m waiting for feedback to finish it. And you know, idle hands……. 😈 So I found this model by Jamil Green and I thought it could be a good model to test some shaders I’ve seen on Grant Warwick’s Mastering Lighting course. But I needed more geometry, and this particular model is great (thanks, Jamil),

MonIberic

INFORMATION Client: MonIberic Interior Design and Art Direction: ExtraBonus CG: Alex Ruano I don’t usually show my professional works, but I will make another exception here (2nd in a row). This is one of my latest projects: a special concept of Spanish delicatessen + coffee shop. A place where you can buy 200 gr. of Serrano ham, and have a coffee or a beer at the same time (or you can order it to go). I think

V-Ray Workshop Top 5

DG House is on the Top 5 selection of V-Ray Workshop! (April 12-18, 2015) Honestly, I don’t know what to say. It has only taken me 12 years to be there. Thanks Evermotion, VRay Workshop and the judges. And above all, to all my friends for their support during the loooong days working on this project, and after that, for their kind words & sharing on Facebook. They are too many, and I don’t want to for

DG House

This is something I’ve been working on my spare time (I don’t even remember when I started working on it xD). The house itself is a project from Francisco José Díaz Gallego Arquitect Studio, but the environment is totally made up by me. As I normally do with my personal scenes, I’ve used it in order to learn, to push myself and improve my skills. Amongst the challenges I’ve faced are: nature e

WIP – Rocks!

Someone once told me: “Overspecialization can be kind of…..meh. You know, there’s a guy in Pixar, ILM or Weta just making rocks. I’m sure he is the best on his field in the entire world. But hey!, is there anything more boring than just making rocks?”. Well, luckily, I don’t pretend to be that guy (I couldn’t, even if I wanted). But I needed some rocks for a WIP I’m cur

Grant Warwick – Mastering VRay

CG is a tough business. New software, new plugins, new render engines, new techniques….and we have to keep up with that. It’s a continuous learning process. Every now and then, a new “guru” comes out of nowhere and becomes highly known in the CG scene. And some of them try to sell that “new” knowledge that has driven them to where they are. I’ve always been a little reluctant

3dsmax Viz Training 2013-14

During last months, Jose Mª Fernández, CEO of The Glow has given several courses at Centro Tecnológico FEVAL, in Don Benito. I helped him in two of them (kind of my speciality, if you will): Lighting and Rendering in 3dsmax with VRay, and Architectural Visualization with 3dsmax and VRay. Just like previous years, we had a great bunch of students, very enthusiastic and eager to learn almost from scratch. And even the

Fairy Bedroom

A useful collaboration in which we have hopefully learned something and/or improved our skills. As usual, 3dsmax, VRay, Marvelous Designer, eyeon Fusion & Motiva RealStereo for the anaglyph version. (Click on the images for a hi-res version)

WIP – Demoreel props

These are some props I’m currently working on, (or just improving), for several shots of my Demoreel. I hope I will live long enough to see it finished someday   😕 Some of them are animated gifs, so click on them to see in action.

Suicide Bulb

Hi! (in case there’s someone reading). This is a small project I finished last Christmas in order to test several techniques, tips and render engines. For now, this is the VRay version (Thea Render version soon to come, I hope)  😎 Other things I practiced were: modeling hard surfaces (which I’m not used to), playing with Marvelous Designer, adding extra detail to the edges of surfaces, following a tutoria
