Room With A View by tigaer Room With A View by tigaer
This one earned a special place in my heart. I wanted to try myself on something new. Well, not entirely new… but at least something different. I was always a fan of these clean and nice looking architectural visualization artworks. These artworks always have a certain look and especially a great lighting going on. I also wanted to have a picture that earned some merits before it even got officially published on my site or art communities. So I submitted it as an entry for Volume 11 of the Ballistic Publishing Expose artbook series. I expected other submissions to make it into the book but not really this one. Especially since it’s my first serious try in doing something like it. Dear lord… a lot of work and revisions went into this picture before I was somewhat happy with it.

I started to play with vector import in Vue quite some time ago. Soon after creating ‘Halcyon Awaits’, (which used a lot of vector imported shapes) I thought that the technique would also wonderfully work to play around with some clean cut scifi architecture design. Yet again I had to go through quite learning curve to get the results I wanted. And all that by going the most efficient way possible. I did not model all of the contents in the scene. I used models from DAZ and A lot of the models needed additional texturing which ate a lot of time. The result however was completely worth it. The flat/room itself is created with vector shapes and Vue’s Texttool. It’s funny what interesting results it can give you. It’s really fun to play with.

In the end it turned out that the pic got selected for inclusion into Expose Vol. 11. That blew me away. Very unexpected and an amazing motivational boost. I did something right. And to make good things better… it even got selected for inclusion into the next d’artiste: Matte Painting 3 book as well. At that point I was flattened. And that’s why this particular pic is very special for me.

If there is a particular story for it? Well. Lets just say it’s a wonderful friday morning. A glorious weekend ahead. A good motivation to welcome the last workday of the week! Fresh clean morning air in the room and soft warm sunlight on the skin to welcome you to a new day.

How much is the rent???
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2018  Professional Digital Artist

Not even I could afford it. :D

DimmuBorgirmi Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2018
The room definitely screams Out. Of. Your. Price. Range.
errid7 Featured By Owner May 31, 2018
This is a beautiful piece right here.
(Let's hope the windows of the future have one way settings...)
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2018  Professional Digital Artist

They probably will. :D So much more freedom in your own home!

errid7 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2018
Now I notice that she has the glass door open. (Or that's just futuristic lighting but it really looks like an open door.) Is that such a good idea for her to do with the lack of clothing?
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2018  Professional Digital Artist

She's a strong and independent woman and it's the future... she just doesn't care. And some warm sunbeams on your skin... who could resist? :D

And (hopefully!) the majority of people in the future are accepting enough of nudity that almost nobody even bothers, except for work and when it's cold. Prudery is a stain on the human condition.
errid7 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2018
Oh, I see.
Well good for her.
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2018  Professional Digital Artist

That's how I see it too. =D

For me it could be a scene from one of Iain M Banks' 'Culture' novels.
