Making of Norfolk Street - Tip of the Week

Michał Franczak 2016-04-13 15:29 tutorial  > 3ds MAX  > modeling

Making of a evening city scene from Archexteriors vol. 28.

This exterior is inspired by a evening view on Norfolk Street. In the middle of the scene you can see 100 Norfolk Street apartments building - an architectural masterpiece on the Lower Eastside of Manhattan. It is included in Archexteriors vol. 28 as scene 8. The scene was made in 3ds Max and rendered in V-Ray by Marcin Białecki (Evermotion).

Overview of the scene. There are many buildings in this scene, we will not cover them all in this tip, because it would become too long. Buildings are surrounded by a dome with a evening sky material.

This scene is much larger than it seems - there are many buildings behind the camera that you will be able to use in your visualizations.
