A little Church in Cincy... 03

***update 30-07-2015: resolution from 1440/900 to 2000/1250 pixels, more stuff and some details, bugfixe the light settings***

This is my third rendering, based on the novels "The Hollows" by Kim Harrison.

To the release date of the German edition from the Hollows Book No. 13 (...on 13 July 2015), I want to create a realistic 3D-Model from the famous church of Cincinnati, home of the main characters Rachel Morgan, Ivy Tamwood and Jenks.

In the last six months, I have read the "Hollows Insider" and the novels again (...and again). I collected and classified all relevant facts around and about the church and converted the descriptions in a complex mesh of polygons.


For the Hollows-fans:

This Image shows the church between the second and third book. The Beta stands on the windowsill, Rachels red splatgun in the bowl, Ivy's Place can be seen in the right corner.


Kim Harrison replied to an e-mail: "Hi Oliver. These are fantastic! I am breathless with the detail and effort you have put into these. You are more than welcome to post them on DeviantArt, yes! .... All the best, Kim"


For the 3D-Artists:

I created the basic model on CAD and imported it to Cinema4D R16 from Maxon.

The furniture, the bowls and the dishes etc... I modeled with C4D. Some textures, the plants are content of the library of C4D.

Rendered with GI, LightMaps, Color mapping, physical sky and physical Camera (f5,6, ISO 200, 1/15s). No PhotoShop. Rendertime 3h,45 minutes. Working time (including reading the books) 6 months.
***update from 30-07-2015: 
physical Camera (f4.5, ISO 400, 1/15s), Redertime is now 5h on a HP-Z230 with Nvidia Quattro K2000***


I am planning some updates for this view (more details and objects) and an inside view of the chancel, temporally located after book no. 6. Or what would you like to see?

I hope you like it!
