Download the files for this problem set here . You will find a Rhino file, as well as 2 different concrete textures, a wood textures, and a corten steel texture.

Step 1

Add a sun and sky, add one of the concrete materials to the walls and window sills, wood to the floor. Make sure to scale the texture maps appropriately so that the concrete looks like concrete and the wood flooring looks like planks of wood. Don't forget to add bump maps to the textures you use. Then render at 800x600 resolution.

Step 2

Take the rendered image into Photoshop, add a sky image, and multiple people to the scene. Lastly, add a tree through the window. Find this entourage on any of the websites we have shown in class. Make sure to add appropriate shadows for entourage you add to the scene.


Add glass to the windows as well as extra textures (corten window frames?)
