Making of one of the winning works of Evermotion Challenge 2017.

Hi i am Konstantinos Anninos and i would like to present you my tutorial for the project " Home is wherever i 'm with you" that took the 3rd place in Evermotions competition "Perfect getaway" . First, i would like to thanks Evermotion for the award and to congratulate everyone that took part to the competition! My idea was to present the camping, nature and freedom feeling that i have from my younger years. I looked for a reference i found the renovated vintage airstream from the book " Tin Can homestead" and immediately loved it!

Geometry assets

I always try to focus on material creation, lighting and post work more than modelling work so I start with a basic surrounding modelling and adding assets including the road, surrounding trees, grass etc and in that process i use mainly Archmodels (volumes 66 and 100) , some plants from 3dsky and grass from Daniel Pantelimon but almost in all of them i did changes in the materials to fit my needs..the airstream model is coming from google warehouse but i had to correct the geometry and adding some screws details etc.

Also the bulbs are coming from google warehouse and again i had to make some modelling corrections in order to work better.

Materials

The material creation was the fun part, I really enjoyed it! I always try not go very deep in materials and keep them as simple as possible. I will focus to 3 materials for the tutorial, the airstream material, the road material and the wooden floor material.

wooden_floor

For the wooden floor material i use a layer with a mask to make it look wet in some areas.

 

road_material

Pretty much i did the same to the road material.

 

airstream_material

For the airstream material i use a smoke texture for bump and 2 layers with imperfections to make it look more life like.

 

camera

I use  Corona Camera with basic settings.


Lighting

For the lighting i used an hdri from hdri heaven because it was matching exactly the mood i had in my mind and also to match better the reference image.

Apart from the main render for the competition, I used also a flashlight version that seems to work really nice to that scene. For that lighting I used a very small light source with very high intensity to mimic the real life flashlight.

flashlight_settings

 

Two key things to keep in mind are that the light source needs to be in the same position where the camera is and the flashlight colour should have a slight blue tint.


Rendering

Since i used Corona Renderer for that project, the settings are the default. The only thing i have to mention here is that i use an LUT (Adanmq_Fuji_Vivid_8543).

Post process

For the post process again i tried to keep it simple as i prefer to make the most into the render..so i use levels, curves, selective colour, colour balance as you can see in the photos:

... also for the people i use one photo i found from pexels.com and the photographer is Josh Willink.

Pretty much i think i cover the key parts as simple as i could but If you have any other questions please let me know in the comments, thanks!

Hi Konstantinos congrats on coming 3rd! Would be awesome if you could tell us a bit more in depth on how you did your post. Raw image looks flat but your final looks amazing.

Thanks a lot CMAster! The depth came mostly from Levels, Curves and adding a bit of Contrast... also i toned the blacks in selective colour tool if that helps you a little bit more. Cheers
