Something from today. - Oak In-frame.

Today between meetings I have designed this one. I need a better 150cm range cooker graphic!

This is a first draft for a customer who, so far, has emailed over some plans and we had a brief phone conversation about what to do with the space. So chances are this will change.
I just needed to put something together to tempt them in. As "it's a 45 minutes drive to the showroom" so they needed to see what sort of thing we could do and an idea of cost before they made the journey! Shocked Mad Laughing

after a chat with a Mr Turner on FB I've tweaked some lighting. But is it any better Question

Nice first draft.... Would the Smeg A5-8 be a better range graphic for it?

Nice renders, If you have such bright sunlight and lit appearance in the windows coming in then i would turn the spots off to give a more natural daylight look. This guy explains it better with the first image he is talking about. Still down to user preference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfYjsHLbqxo

A great critique on image composition. Some very useful points on some already good renders.

Looks great. How long did this take to put together? unfortunately i find it always comes down to lack of graphics that is the biggest issue and giveaway that the image is just an image, not a photograph which defeats the whole point of photo-realism.

Most look as though they need a bit more reflection. Increasing this for the likes of the oak material will reduce the "glow and orange" look it has.

Did the design throughout saturday between customers. So maybe 1.5 - 2 hours? Renders took about an hour per image.


Daz, if i get chance ill try tweaking the reflection and see how it looks.

Thats good going! I spend far too long trying to edit materials and improve realism......hoping V21 is going to have these materials as promised. Surely, 2 years on from when they announced it was nearly ready, they will be launching it at KBB?

Hope you get the job, keep us updated!

so this customer has brought in a competitors design which they have ask me to copy Sad 
ok, so this island is bigger and maybe that's what the like? but I think my TV wall section and Range cooker section is much better  Rolling Eyes

I've removed the customer and dealer info from under each image.
(Nath - this design is from my favorite local Burbidge dealers  Laughing Mad )





Thoughts on this design vs mine ? be honest, I wont cry  Sad

and its not my scanner - ther renders / print outs the customer had were that grainy

I prefer yours...

The tall oven housing behind the door.... not really practical...??

The size of the island?.... looks massive.... will need a joint in the worktop which I would not like

'copied' the other showrooms design now.
With a few tweaks, and actually drawn the mantle/chimney as per the customers hand drawings - well close enough anyway.

Only did this one quickly, as the customer still hasn't taken the time to ever come in, so wondering if I should be taking the time to do his design work...

hmmm odd. the security setting are set to share etc. so should be able to see?
they are in a google folder here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/3CmOMzmuIs7Z74Hu1  = folder

Jayne. No, I dont charge for design. 

Part of the reason this guy is starting to get on my t!ts is because we are at V3, I know he is speaking to two other showrooms and the client hasn't bothered to come in and see my product, pick a door range, worktop, etc - i'm only 45 minutes away! so all my designs and quotes are estimates based on what he's seen else where and what I think he is after / they have quoted.
I think that's all i'm going to be doing for them now, they either come in or I bow out.
