Today, another update of the development of the 3D-model of the project The Alley. Most of the buildings have their basic construction and I have added some props in the scene, like a carriage, crates, and a tree. I like the composition, but the level of detail is still not good enough. I do not know yet how detailed the model must be and which details I can better add in Photoshop. But that is part of the process for this project :) The model must give an accurate representation of the objects with their reflections and shadows. So everything that emits light or casts shadows must be included in the model. I however do not like how the leaves and water are rendered, so I may add that in Photoshop for a more realistic finish. I will now start working on the finer details and adding more props to the scene. Maybe I will experiment a little bit with some photoshop editing. Stay tuned for more progress updates :) More info: https://zevchafer.com/the-alley/

This year I will start to learn more about 3D-modeling and combining this with photo-editing. The first project is named "The Alley". It is inspired by the Victorian/Edwardian era and de Industrial progression. I will make a 3D-model of a small street and render it. Then I am going to post-edit it with Photoshop. The goal is to make it as realistic as possible (This is the first time I am doing this, so it will be a learning process :D ) You can follow the project via my website, and I will post updates in my journal. Go to: https://zevchafer.com/the-alley/ The inspiration was drawn from the photo below, made by Phyllis Nicklin in the 1960's. I love the colours, vibe and the architecture. I will try to recreate a similar scene. Maybe I will also include people and animals, but I am not sure yet. If you have any ideas or recommendations, please tell me. I would love to hear what you think :)
