A new 3D image and a book cover

Today I released on the site a new 3D image, called "Bed room". This is a photo-realistic render of a bed room, in a beautiful morning. The 3D scene does not contain any lights. The illumination is generated using radiosity. For the bed we used sub-polygonal displacement. Rendering took 51 hours in Cinema 4D and AR.

Also, I made a book cover for "Multi-Precision Mathematics". Authors: Mads Rasmussen, Greg Rose and Tom St. Denis.

IFMA project - 3D elevators

I release now the IFMA project which is the biggest project I worked on until now.

"Societatea Română de Ascensoare IFMA S.A." (a Romanian company which creates elevators) needed a presentation catalog of their elevators. In June to September 2003, I worked for 6 high quality, photo-realistic renders of elevators, ready for typography, in CMYK color format. I also created 36 more variations at a lower quality for a CD presentation application which allows the IFMA clients to customize their own elevator by picking the materials and the models they want for ceilings, floors, walls, control panels and other components. For the catalog I also rendered few very detailed close-ups of the displays, ceilings, floors, control panels and others.
