Materials & texturing

In this step of the process, it's important to collect real material references to have a good base and understanding for texturing the materials in the scene. Most of the textures are self-made, based on those available at Arroway and CGTextures, with specific adjustments in Photoshop (contrast, color, dirt) to get a better result.

Here you can see a couple of the more interesting materials from this project: water, stone, wall and glass

Render setup

I rendered this scene with V-Ray and aimed to keep render times acceptable with an Irradiance Map and Light Cache solution. Also, I enabled some render elements to use later in the post-production stage.
