Hello all,

Here is a recent completed render,

I couldn't achieve the desired realistic look so I've tried a bit of sketch PP.

c&c is welcomed!

Cheers

Lovely work mate! really like it. One suggestion i would say is try to change the size/orientation of the plants so they dont all look the same. But great work! The pink trees look abstract but i like it.

Thanks mate. I did do some randomizing with the plants (Chris Fulmer). I agree, it needs more variance.

@nibelungs - Exterior QMC (only reason being that black patches appear on the 2.5D grass) 

I would like to learn how to PP in grass to reduce render times. Can anyone provide any easy to understand tutorials for that? I use Photoshop.

There's some good aspects to this render but too many bad elements to make it look realistic.

Your planting is not good at all, having so many identical components will always look bad. You need some other plants and scale and rotate to create variation.

Your background trees are also not good, they are better in the top image but could still be improved. Your grass is not great, maybe if you post the raw render more tips and advice can be given on how to Photoshop your grass. Although you should look at the posts by Andrew Trodler for grass ideas, see here :http://supodiumforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/grass-texture-on-terrain-8395522?pid=1294657752

Overall the colour and contrast looks to harsh, playing around with the sunlight and shadows would help with this.

The detail on the house is overall very good, its everything surrounding it that needs improvement.

kind regards,
Nat

Just a few suggestions on the design rather than the rendering:

- Add direct access from the driveway to the porch. Maybe connect to a paved landing at the bottom of the steps if you adjust the grade.
- The grade at the bottom step should be relatively level from one side to the other.
- Consider using the same material on the stair risers as on the driveway and planting bed retaining walls. Personal preference, but I would use a paving stone on the porch and steps that would better coordinate with the driveway pavers.
- If the driveway/planter walls are stucco then would typically have a cap stone.
- The dark roof is too thick at the gable ends.
- Pet peeve: the small roof sections above the cornice returns should be a shallow pitch rather than match the slope of the gables.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Please see attached updated render and raw.

I think shadows are still too harsh.

Cheers

A good candidate for the magic grass technique... sure!
