Final image after post-production. This is simple and quite small interior. Interesting things are: lighting panels on the left that are bending over the table and industrial ventilation pipes beneath the ceiling. Although the space is small, it is lit by many light sources.

Pipes beneath the ceiling - wireframe view.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_AE40s04_0016_Layer_24_144.jpg

Pipes without wireframe. Pipes were modeled in 3ds Max, then exported to ZBrush and sculpted there. After that, we exported displacement map from ZBrush and used it in bump slot of VRay material.

Pipes material. As you can see it uses quite complex bump settings - it mixes three different maps in bump map slot. It gives a look of thick, uneven paint surface on the pipes.

RAW render. It actually looks quite good already, there is not much to do, we need only adjust it tonally.

Photoshop layers. We used Curves layer to get rid of grey and change it to blue / green tint. then we put highpass layer to sharpen the image. ZDepth layer fill 11%, screen) enhances pipes details. It is limited by Color Fill 1 clipping mask (that is giving blue tint). TotalLight layer enhances overall brightness. On top of that we have Reflection layer.
