Chair teasing

Just a quick glimpse of one in a series of new assets currently in the making. Trying to perfect the shaders here. I might post some tips on those a little further down the road. Can you guess the model and designer?


High-Carb CG – and big warehouse update!

I’ve spent quite a bit of my spare time in the past few weeks prepping a second series of ready-to-render bread assets. And since I had been experimenting with Grant Warwick‘s latest material session (edible stuff), I decided to add the chocolate, strawberry pie and caramel in one big, calorie-laden image.

“European Loft” hits the Warehouse

And like “Chicago Loft”, it is a minimalist space, with a …
