Hats off to Peter
It’s been a long time coming, but the excellent Peter Guthrie has now published the final images for his snowy rendition of the “Twins” house by William O’Brien Jr. and, unsurprisingly, it is a show-stopper. These are for me among the very best images Peter has produced to date. They make for yet another stunning demonstration of Peter’s skills and, in particular, his unmatched command of lighting and mood. Only a CG artist who is also a professional photographer in his own right could come up with those. As is often the case, I feel compelled, having seen this and read Peter’s account, to fire up my own computer and try a few things I wish I had thought of first. For instance, and this is just a footnote, I’m stunned by what Peter managed to get out of Vray’s built-in lens effects, which never quite worked for me. Got to give it another try now.
