My past few years with indigo

Post by gjengi » Sun Oct 17, 2010 9:03 pm

Hello everyone,

I've been rendering with indigo (& skindigo) for the past few years, but recently I've started using it more and more - so much so I bought a licence and upgraded my pc spec :D

Here's a few of my renders over the years. I would appreciate any comments/tips/etc.
I've done many more - but the quality of some of them is even worse than these!

I use it mostly for my course (architecture) however I do random renders every now and then to test things.

Apologies again for the rubbish quality - most of these were in older versions of indigo and on a rubbish desktop pc. :)

Thanks,

Gjengi

Hey gjengi

Great work!! those arch massings are awesome.

I am too an architect in training, it's great to see Indigo been used and not just bad Mental Ray or Sketchup screen shots.

on a side note, I did a massing render similar to yours a while back for my studies, and my tutor gave me a big lecture on how if i made a physical model then i should bring it to the crit.. After his 5min talk on the importance of physical modeling with real materials I told him it was a render, the poor guy nearly had an heart attack.

Keep up the good work :D

No apologies necessary. Your renders certainly are not rubbish.
Actually - and forgive me if I use the wrong terminology as I am not an Architect - I find the architectural renders with the cardboard and wooden structures quite nice!

Wow, very impressive renders gjengi!

Good that you're not lurking anymore, such renders deserve more attention :D

Hi gjengi!
It's very exciting to see an architect colleague exploring the art of Indigo and SkIndigo!!!

Hope to see some more of your work soon!

Thanks everyone!! :D Thanks for all the praise :oops: - I love using indigo as it's so intuitive and accurate. I'm doing my bit for the indigo crew and promoting it to my course mates as much as possible!

I wonder if I'm one of the only female indigo renderers too????

I'm currently working on a new project for my course, so I probably won't produce any full renders to show everyone until the beginning of December - but I might upload a few random ones in-between!

Hi Pibuz and triplej28 - nice to see fellow architects on here too. It's true about the tutors and there amazement when you tell them it's a render. I think the architecture model style renders actually tend to be the most effective sometimes - even over the photo realistic renders. They also take a lot less time and processing power and don't give too much away (just to show the concept at least!).

Thanks again,

gjengi

I've been busy doing some renders for a current housing project I'm doing at uni.
Here's a few that I've done over the last few days - the rest are still rendering away!! :D
I know the vegetation isn't great - I've not had the time to spend doing it all that well. I may have stolen the kitchen from an earlier model.... :wink:

Third image looks very nice and realistic. I definitely like this type of schematic visualizations and "cuts". The only small critic might be the repeated texture pattern of the dark brown material (possibly wood) :wink:

Thanks dakiru :)
Yeah, I couldn't seem to get a good timber texture without paying some money - and seeing as I'm a lowly student, that wasn't going to happen! I just settled on something that got the idea across, without being too in your face. If anyone has a texture they can give me, i'd very much appreciate it :wink: hehe

And another one...

It seems to have taken a very long time to clear up though - on 4200samples per pixel and still noisy - I suppose it's the file size :roll:

Thanks dag! Not sure if there was a pun in there somewhere... I'm a girl tho, so not sure it applies!
I've found one that I reckon suits the look I'm going for. What do you think?

Now to re-render all my scenes...urgh
