I wanted to share a 3d rendering I’ve had in my inspiration file for awhile. I don’t know who did this, and the only identification I saved with the image is that it’s from a site called Renderings.com.
I love the attention to detail in this image. The lighting is excellent, and the lens flare effect (I think that’s what it’s called) is very effective. The modelling is virtually flawless. The fabrics on the sofa look very realistic to me, as does the stone floor.
In fact, if I didn’t tell you this was a rendering, you probably would have thought it was a photo. And that’s the holy grail for people like me who love photorealistic renderings. When someone tells me one of my images “looks just like a photograph,” I consider that the highest compliment!
I went back to the Renderings.com site to see if I could find out who created this rendering, but the site has changed quite a bit and I wasn’t able to find this particular image. The company specializes in renderings for high-end real estate marketing. There are many other great 3D images on their site of large apartment complexes, condos, and resorts, including some impressive animations. Check this one out:
