See Making of one of the winning scenes of Evermotion Challenge 2015!

Hello Everyone, I want to congratulate all participants, winners and Evermotion team for making this fantastic Challenge. In this tutorial I describe step by step making my Brooklyn NYC Loft.
The Idea was to create something like photo essay using cg. The rendering describes one day of artist who lived in this loft interior. I was searching vintage stuff from 60’s and 70’s collecting art and and lots of things like pop art posters, old vintage furniture, raw details from old factory.
