Making of Winter Scene

Winter morning in the village. Tutorial for 3ds Max, V-Ray, Photoshop.

This tutorial was made by Cihan ÖZKAN. Visit artist's site:

In the beginning, my objective was to create an avenue hosting old buildings in a rural area. I wanted to set forth a winter scene, the early hours of a morning with plenty of snow and a sense of warmth radiating with the lights of the houses. During my work, I utilized the software Autodesk 3d MAX, V-Ray and Adobe Photoshop. The work took about 2 to 3 weeks. This can be described as a work that I made for recreation, by utilizing the leisure time I had between my daily routine works.

From the internet, I started to examine related pictures and I particularly focused on the elements of snow, the piling effect created by the wind and the accumulation of snow on trees.

Usually, I draw small sketches for buildings. These form a basis that I use during the modeling process.

Afterwards, I start to create my model by drawing Box from 3dMAX basic objects.

At this stage, I utilize the flexible tools (Extrude, Bevel, Bridge, Chamfer) offered by Poly Modeling.

After roughly forming the buildings, I start trying compositions by gathering them in a single scenery, and in this way I complete my works in broad strokes.

In order to emphasize on the accumulation of snow on tree branches and trunks, I used the particle system offered by 3d Max.

While modeling the icicles on the eaves, I once again used poly modeling tools by taking the basic box object as basis, and later on I obtained the result through Turbo Smooth and Noise.

I used similar modeling methods also for the streetlights, electric poles, the sitting bench and the other descriptive model pieces.

In order to create the terrain, I used Mesh Displace implemented on Plane. This tool has provided me with ease and flexibility particularly in creating the footprints on the snow.

For general lighting, I used HDR image in combination with Vray Dome Light. The lighting effect created through HDR helped me in imitating the sunrise in the morning.

In order to provide the interior lighting effect from the buildings, I used orange Vray Plane lights.

V-Ray Camera:

  • f-number 5,0
  • vignetting 1,2
