Mug Still Life Rendering Challenge Winners

and the winner is….

First of all we like to thank all the participants, visitors and followers of this challenge. Its a challenging decision to make even though only a few manage to submit their final images. We still received competitive entries and definitely they are recommended individuals that best fit to work in a competitive workplace environment.

We also would like to thank for all the respected judges from our cg communities listed below, for helping us to select the best that fits our criteria about the mug.

Once again the objectives of this challenge is to visualize a mug as the main focus. In a competitive world a good visualizer is not only about the render but also must able to tell a story and sell ideas. This is what this challenge is all about. And the winner of the first 3dteamz rendering competition goes to…..

 

Keep Calm Amidst Chaos1st Place: Joseph Catuiran /Dubai

As a photo hobbyist I am always amazed by how great photographers direct your eye into their subject even against a somewhat chaotic background. This is what I wanted to achieve in this piece. To direct the viewer’s eye to the subject-in this case the lovely coffee mug- against a background of various items.
For this image I tried to use (and break) some composition principles such as the rule of thirds and leading lines and my personal favorite composition-rule-of-thumb: “fill the frame”.
So I hope you enjoy my entry and happy rendering always!

#3dteamz #Jesmar Joseph Catuiran #MugStillLifeRenderingChallenge

 

Prabhudas MugStillLife2nd Place: Prabhudas Bhagwat /India

The Whole Idea behind this image was to create a Cozy Looking Place with Vibrant Colours but at the same time to Maintain the Simplicity of the Scene. Plants are added to Create very Soothing environment. I used Depth of field to Focus The main Area Which is Table with a mug.
Softwares Used : 3ds Max, Vray, Photoshop

#3dteamz #Prabhudas Bhagwat#MugStillLifeRenderingChallenge

 

Simple with Maximum Impact3rd Place: Raphael Rivera /Philippines

I’m, Raphael Rivera, a former 2d animator & a Background artist.First & Foremost I would like to thank all the coordinators & sponsors to this one of a kind prestigious competitions that allows us an artist to explore, create, visualize & express our talents to the world of art. Base on my Masterpiece, this explains a statement “The Art Of Simplicity is a puzzle to Complexity”.This is somehow essentially describe the purpose of my artwork which I applied the background principles that I have learned from my previous experiences and adding a dynamic scene design rather than on the straight line silhouette this scene. I chose to make the background simple to express & reveal the true contents of what photography is all about, though some of my works are done on purely details. As an artist, I did not used any of a pre-made models or templates just to feel in the completeness of the artwork rather than I make my own style & creativity to this artworks because to me, this is a crowning reward of art. My simplicity is the glory of expressions and I hope you like my masterpiece. Happy rendering!

#3dteamz #RaphaelRivera#MugStillLifeRenderingChallenge

 

EXPRESSION OF COLORS AND TEXTURESBest in Detail: Eugene Caasi /Dubai

First I chose dark wall and detailed old frames with broken glass on them as my background then i picked old wooden chest with metal details as accents as my base.Instead of metal or gold materials for the candle stands, I preferred primary colors – red, blue and yellow, with detailed rusts on them.Actually I personally find it more dramatic to lit the candles for added reflections on all the glass materials. The accent purple fabrics acted as contrast to the primary colors and the dark wooden materials of the chest. Those purple tulips I think compliment the purple fabric to create balance on the entire color scheme. The small pieces like the pine nuts, light red plum fruits, etc. add more depth to the scene as it create more shadows. The brushes inside the glass containers represent the creative side of each and everyone of us as artists. If you can notice wine bottle, I deliberately turn the wine upside down to throw the white wine up away. Because it has been my policy not to drink any alcohol hahaha. Sorry to the drinkers for my personal bias on this. The old wall clock and the golden watch on the hand figurine depict obviously time of which all of our 3d rendering journey really needs. And lastly, the 3dteamz mug (the main actor of the scene) sitting on top of the book of knowlege represented by the 2 old antiquated books. As you can see on the image, this is my expression of various colors complimenting each other, carefully chosen detailed textures and reflections to come up with rather conventional classic example of vintage still life with the 3dteamz mug as the starring role if I may say, in the middle of the entire scene.

#3dteamz #Eugene Caasi#MugStillLifeRenderingChallenge

 

UNWINDBest in Ambience: Yousuf Bari /Dubai

Relax, Nothing under control.
Being busy is necessary to meet our deadline
but to unwind or relax is absolutely necessary as well. So I decided to achieve the message with my render. I hope you enjoy my entry and do not forget to have a break.

Happy render always.

#3dteamz#YousufBari#MugStillLifeRenderingChallenge

 

Black Coffee
Consolation Prize: Denson Puente /Philippines

i love coffee in the morning. I am always freaking tired, and I need five cups of coffee to get through the day. Even on days when I get enough sleep, I still wake up groggy. I get to ‘bed’ early but I ended up tossing and turning and it takes me forever to fall asleep. I created a scene that is simple, i just added some elements around the mug to make it look more realistic, reflective of my real morning ambience. In this work, i use the depth of field focusing, of course, in the mug and a bit blurry effect to other elements as its background.

workflow: skp2015 + vray 2.00.25 + photoshop

Physically Based Materials Workflow

Checkout this public sessions about Physically Based Materials Workflow how it can transformed Arch Viz.

During the Substance Days event featuring masterclasses, keynotes and talks by some of the top Substance users from around the world. What impressed the most was the ability of some of these artists to create the impressive textures they do. If your current texture pipeline, like many, revolves around photographs, scans and Photoshop, your first exposure to Substance might seem daunting, as it really does require a completely different thought process. While much of the work is done in a node graph similar to many shader pipelines, the way you build procedural materials requires that you look at materials around you like puzzles that need to be solved. And as a result some of these node trees can get pretty intense.

The line up of speakers this year was impressive to say the least, but they had a chance to ask Scott a few questions about his presentation this year. He provided insight into their current pipeline and detailed the work they recently completed on the new NVIDIA headquarters.

Eugene Caasi

Armored only with courage and belief and when fascination turns into obsession. Today please join us to welcome another very inspiring artist. We ask him about what keeps him inspired and passionate. Let’s check out our interview with him with a piece of advice on how to try to develop efficient working techniques, how to deal critics and don’t be upset when things are getting harder but with aim for rewarding outcomes. This real life story is something to be inspired of and enjoy the superb rendered images from him below…

Featuring: Mr. Eugene Cañete Caasi
Senior 3D Designer /Architectural & Interiors
/Dubai

“The Interview”

Please tell us a little bit about yourself, like how long are you working in this industry?

Well to start with, my name is Eugene “Soy Weird” Cañete Caasi. I am currently & passionately working as a Senior 3d Designer for Architectural & Interiors at Emsquare Engineering in Dubai, UAE and still loving the city for its ultramodern architecture for more than 12 years now. Our company has 65 on-going projects (multi-level luxurious apartments, commercial buildings, towers, high-end villas in the most expensive properties in Palm Jumeirah and various interior spaces.

I had always been fascinated with art in general may it be poetry, photography, digital art, 3d visuals -architecture & interior design. But as far as my memory can take me, it was 1998 when I started learning autocad release 11 & photoshop 7 while studying B.S. in Architecture at the University of Mindanao. Until a very good friend of mine, introduced me to Discreet 3dsmax 4 in 2000 and my fascination turned into an obsession.

As a promdi from Davao, it was a rough start for me learning this craft in the beginning simply because internet wasn’t a fad. I had limited resources to turn to when I had doubts on manipulating the software back then so i had to discover for myself what I needed to absorb. And I also worked alone at home for 5 years taking my own clients introducing them to 3d for it was a foreign concept for them what 3d render really meant. My Philippine struggle was a history, when I decided to go abroad in 2005 for a greener pasture leaving my 2 precious kids and my most loving wife behind then.

 

What philosophy do you apply to your work that our community may find inspiring or helpful?

In this 3d world, even though I had been here for 17 years, I am still learning now and consider myself a student because I always believe that knowledge is an evolution of unending process. Everyday I start my day with enthusiasm knowing that I got the chance not only to put smiles to clients faces by realizing their dreams but also witnessing our very own design with the help of my team, being built, coming into life from the design concept stage to reality and that in itself is an art. Priceless beyond words…

What are the difficulties you encounter in working this project and the solution you can suggest to our readers?

Well, more than 17 years had passed, with the various projects I had undertaken, everytime, I tackled them in so many different ways. As they say, different strokes for different folks . But if I may go back to basics, first I normally gather ideas. For instance varied photographs related to the given project, textures necessary to the scene, 3d models that may speed up the process rather than modelling all the components to complete your scene, having my 3d model collection essentially ready, backgrounds and the like.

But of course, in a big firm, you always have the advantage because the work is designated to people specialized in their own given tasks let’s say, after the design concept had been decided by the architects & the designers initially draftsmen would do the cad drafting and when its ready you can come in and start creating the model, rendering and the post processing.

There are 3 major softwares in my process and I call them the “holy trinity softwares”, Autocad 2017, 3dsmax 2017 with a Vray 3.4 rendering engine and Photoshop Cs6. Basically, I outline my floor plans and elevations in Cad. Create my 3d model, apply my materials, render in Max and finally make my final post process in Photoshop. Simply pretty basic actually.

One of the most important key factor for me is speed. Speed can kill as they say. This has always been my best weapon for deadlines. This may seem a bit harsh but that’s the reality of this field. Clients or bosses give the project today but your actual deadline was 2 days back. So far, it has been working for me. Justice delayed is justice denied. I call it justice because clients are spending millions for every project. So by not submitting the 3d presentations on time is a big monetary injustice. Just a piece of advice, try to develop efficient, working techniques to hasten up the result of your best presentation.

 

With the tight turnaround and complicated work, what keeps you inspired and passionate?

The love for the art had always been my foundation. This is my driving force why I never get tired of doing what I do. Knowing that everyday is another opportunity to express myself in a way that it makes me fulfilled and satisfied with every image I create. An opportunity to explore another visions. meeting high profile clients and gaining recognition for every visual that you render. That to me is something to be inspired, passionate about and best of all the financial rewards that comes with it.

Do you have anything to add that will help inspire others. Please feel free to let us know.

Go in touch with people of your kind. Accept comments for we are not perfect and we will never be. Don’t be upset when things are getting harder. When people saying your work are not good enough, never give up. Keep chasing your dreams. Always strive to be the best version of yourself.

Don’t be a 3d purist sometimes we tend to think that everything can be achieved in 3d rendering. Discover the power of editing in photoshop. Sometimes it offers a faster and better solution. More than you can imagine. I can say that, aspiring 3d artist nowadays are luckier than during our times, even though I started late but I was still able to endure and now enjoying the ride.

I could still freshly remember when I first came here in Dubai with 150 dirhams, the mere money I had in my pocket for 2 months, armored only with courage and belief in myself that I knew I would bravely survive. Struggles will always be a part of every endeavor that is a given. Our 3d struggles will never be different from our real life’s struggles. For 3d is a life in itself.

Just enjoy your 3d journey. Learn from artist the you lookup to. When your working, think of it as a hobby not a job. At the end of the day, your talent will provide you with a financial abundance. And from time to time take a break. What I usually do I set a goal – a personal project outside of my office project but unlike the office deadline I give myself 1 month-deadline to finish up the artwork. I am my own client. As an artist, I inclined to believe that these personal 3d artwork of mine, are food to my soul.

Special thanks to Mr. Rey Gerali. More power to 3dteamz. Be blessed everyone. To God be the Glory.
