Notes:
Hi! Im trilled to present my new image.

It has passed a while since I've made a full 3d image and the craving was killing me, I think I haven't started to work in it because the inspiration never got to me, until one day I took a look around and realized that I wanted to do what I was looking at.

The inspiration came from a very big public market from the city I live in, San Juan de Dios it's called, I didn't wanted to copy it, just to be the inspiration for my image.

This gig took me around 3 months using my free time, it was a lot more than I thought because there are many elements involved, hundreds of them in fact, never really realized how much work it would take.

I experimented with many stuff in here, the image started in MentaRay and half the way I decided to change to Vray, LOL, thousands of proxies, rigid body dynamics, many lights, millions of polygons (172 mill to be precise) and a 5 hours render to make it possible.

Now I'm working on a series of video tutorials (2 hours long) detailing the complete process to make San Juan.

I hope these are all instance of each fruit. Or else I guess it would have taken longer.

Great render! Can I eat some?

Two things in my mind after observing this nice work:
The feeling of horror and hunger. The fruits are so awesomely attractive, fresh and inviting to eat. Yet, the absence of people, the dolls, the fallen cloth (there is a specific name for that type of clothing or mantel), and the bright lights coming from the entrance of the market make it so spooky. Perhaps there was some kind of rapture and everyone just disappeared.

This is brilliant - I always love scene of seemingly commonplace environments - it really makes people pay attention to detail and composition, and you did a ownderful job.

Can't wait for the tutorials - I am very curious as to how to managed the geometry of all of the fruits and vegetables

Brilliant! Very nice render.

It's always nice to see how such simple things of our routine can turn into fabulous artworks if given the correct treatment and composition, to see the beauty in such regular things. Congrats to you =)

Would love to see the tutorial you're working on
