waiting for de*guff

ahhhhhh willy gufron is a rising star in the 3d stratosphere

working as a designer and interior consultant in Surabaya-Indonesia willy aka de_guff found his passions in music (he plays guitar) and 3d modeling and rendering.

these are a few of his fave pieces (mine too!) and I can't wait to see what he's up to next... his renderings are so stylized and dreamy... I just hope he doesn't make us wait too long to see more of his superb work...

C4D aka Cinema 4D is a 3D computer graphics program by MAXON which I have not had the luxury of time to learn. I think it produces some pretty impressive images, but then again it depends on the CGartist and render engine. Maxwell Render and Vray are render engines typically used with C4D. If you have a C4D image you would like me to showcase, drop me an email with the image attached and we'll see if it passes muster...

LadyBird by pupii is a must see here

Time Under the Trees






Alfa Smyrna from Turkey created this scene for self-training purposes: to practice different seasonal and lighting conditions and to see how the environment reacts to the various rendering engine parameters. Alfa studied Architecture at METU School of Architecture. After graduation, he discovered his passion for CG (Computer Graphics). Tutorials for his process can be found at Evermotion.

'Fall' was selected as one of the top five nominees for the CGarchitect 2009 Architectural 3D Awards in the 'Best Architectural Exterior Image' category out of over 500 images. See the nominees here. It also received a Best of Evermotion Award. See the comments here.

Beach View {Polytown}
HO House {Dunsky Architects}
Foodart Event Hall {Gal Or Fishbain Architects}
Penthouse Pool in Rama Tower {BLK Architects}
Perlman Building {Mor Meira Architects}

For those of you who don't know, a 3D model is made up of polygons... hence the clever name Polytown: an Architectural Visualization Studio founded in 2005 by Ronen Bekerman.

I love his work for its stunning manipulation of simulated light!

Watch the Polytown video set to 'Interlude' by Thievery Corporation...
