Hope you're all well and safe. With some extra time in my hands I've been working on a portfolio of freelance work. Here's the latest.

Render is fabulous!

I’m not quite sure what that is below the mirrors though.

It looks like a washtrough in concrete, but it looks kind of silly because you just can’t build that in concrete in that form with those dimensions. You also can’t get corners that sharp. Even if you try, they break off when the formwork is removed.

You can’t fix the taps in that configuration, you can’t build the washtrough, it’s not deep enough, and if it’s one piece, you can’t get it into the room, you can’t repair the pipes - you get the idea...

Lovely ideas, but very impractical. Have a look at John Pawson or Claudio Silvestrin’s work for inspiration for stuff like this. They make it work though [wink]

Oh yes, this is much better!

The render itself is no worse than the original (which was really excellent) but the new details immediately make it look much more realistic, because they aren’t showing things we haven’t seen before and which don’t look right.

This is the thing with realism, there are so many little details you need to pay attention to if you want the most convincing results. Tiny gaps here and there, irregular positioning, rounded corners and textures that consistently have the right joints in the right places, or none at all.
Texture direction around edges is also important.

From what I can see (I’m on the ipad at the moment, not my iMac Pro with its 5k screen) you’ve done all things very well.

Really excellent work[thumb]
