Red vase study with Cycles
A great way to develop our skills in interior rendering with Cycles is with personal projects. If you are looking to get a job in a studio, having several personal projects in a portfolio is a great plus. The reason for that is because people will have the impression that you like to test your creative skills.
Having a portfolio with only commercial or academic projects is great, but personal projects will make you stand out from the crowd.
Here is a personal project from an artist called smili, and shared at the BlenderArtists forums. The project has a name of “Red Vase” and shows a minimalist interior scene with a red vase at the center.
Unfortunately, we don’t have much more details about the project like render settings or light setup. The only information shared by author:
- 2000 samples for each render
- The color profile is filmic
- The primary light source is an HDRI map
- An emission plane helps with the lights above the window frame
- Color correction on both Blender and Photoshop
