Making of Rest House

Archviz tutorial by Robert Laguerta.

Greetings everyone! My name is Robert Laguerta, working as CG artist at Architect Design Practice, Malaysia.

I would like to share with you the “Making of Rest House". It’s a house designed and modeled by Rasco Architecture, a company based in Hong Kong.

First we check our final render...

The objective of the rendering is to create an environment that will complement the house with the surrounding landscape.
Software used: Sketch up, 3ds Max, V-Ray and Photoshop.

House is modeled using SKP then imported to 3ds Max. Terrain is added using Plane standard object, adding segments to follow the House structure using (push/pull) in Paint Deformation option to create some bumps.

This work based on 5SRW principle (Read an article: "Five steps to realistic renders"):

Hi, first of all i want to say congratulations for your amazing work and your time to share this tutorial. Then i want to ask you this: i´ve been working with 3D Max and VRay for about a year, but it happens that in the office i work they only use Vray for sketchup so i´ve been using and learning it, i edited my materials and all, but when i export it to 3D Max all my materials are reset, so i edit them, no problem with that. After some rough images for the client and after some changes in sketchup, i export it once again into my 3dMax File, but all the materials are reset again, is there a way to fix this or what can i do? because i see that you only did glass and terrain material, but what about other materials? do you edit them all again? Thank you so much!

thanks everyone.! ArtGomez17 im not sure how vray for skp is working if exported to 3dmax, bec this file is only textured using the basic map in skp, maybe u can try 1.put all ur materials(skp) to material editor ball (max) after bringing ur skp file to max, 2. use vray-scene converter . 3, re-attach the materials stored in material balls this way uvw coordinates is preserve.
