This is my first attempt at a professional rendering. The client wants to see how a new building will look next to the existing. They both are very similar.
I modeled the new building (on the right) in AutoCad and established the control points for the existing building. Then I photographed the existing building (on the left) and built a model in Photomodeler, using the control points for orientation and scale. Also, I created some textures from the existing building for the new in Photomodeler. Then I imported both models into 3D Studio Max. I added the background, etc. and settled on a camera position. The file is rather large now, so I created another file just for the cars. Finally, I saved two bitmap files and brought them into Adobe Photoshop Elements. Then I added the people and text (not shown).
I know it must look rough, but next time it will go faster and I can spend more time on improvements.
I would be glad to have your comments in that respect.
