Nakagin Capsule Tower

Long time no see. Here’s one I’ve been working on for over three months, very much on-and-off depending on the day job. I call it finished though it could use more details in places (and has some superfluous details that are hardly visible). This is my rendition of the 1972 Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo by … Continued

Warm Corona Greys

Having more and more fun with Corona, and after uploading a good selection of full V-Ray scenes to the Warehouse, I thought it was time to offer an exclusive Corona interior. Corona Loft (for lack of a more imaginative title) is now uploaded and ready to download. It’s a full, high-quality, ready-to-render industrial loft scene. Use … Continued

The scene … Continued

Danny’s Dream

A different kind of vintage

I’ve been working on a little side-project in the past few months, which I should be able to release in the coming weeks. This is just a teaser. But probably enough to tell you what it will be about. Check back soon.

Corona Kitchen

I’ve been wanting to return to Corona for a while but couldn’t find the time. Then I saw some marketing shots by Cesar for its Kalea line of kitchens that I thought fitted the renderer perfectly due to the somewhat complicated “chiaroscuro” lighting scenario. These images have been finished for quite some time but I’m only getting … Continued
