    Default How do you deal with houses that aren't surrounded by trees but by other buildings...

    Hello,

    This is more of a general question, I was wondering what do you guys do in these types of situations...

    Let's say your assignment is a house which is A) Surrounded by ugly stuff like old buildings that are decayed, or B) The house is actually in a flat piece of land, no trees in real life.

    What do you do in these situations? If you need to take "aerial-ish" views, do you create fake scenery even though its not there and it will never be? or do you just fade the horizon to white or something...

    I ask because a lot of my assignments are small buildings/houses and these are sometimes in poor areas of the city.

    Thanks

    If its possible i like to get an aerial photo, but sometimes i simply cut the scene so it kind of looks like a scale model on a table, also showing some earth on the edges. I've also photographed the surroundings and modeled and phototextured it in Sketchup (doesnt always look nice though). But my favorite is to have a photo made by one of those guys with a remote helicopter.

    You could always take background photographs of the area and do a perspective match, if the client is looking for realism. Otherwise I'd just do some simple mass model of the surrounding buildings that way you're not distracted by what's around you.
    I make fake things for real people to convince them fake things are real.

    Gotcha, thanks for the tips guys...

    I think i'll just build generic stuff around since the actual surroundings on this particular client are almost poverty looking... not gonna look good in the render.
