The FireFly Cottage

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Presenting you some renders from a personal work, which I started long time back.(and still working on during my free time) to study new techniques and to test out different styles of lighting, texturing, landscaping and post-production.

I once had a dream, of millions of fireflies/lightning-bugs, lighting up all around my house, I fancied them to be stars that took life and came down from the skies spreading all around my home... Here I tried to recreate the same dream in 3d and photoshop. And for improving/testing my photoshop skills, I decided to render a day scene in 3d and convert it to night using photoshop. Here I used the same base render for the day and night shots. I will update the making soon.

Inspiration of location and cottage model is from my various journeys through the mountain ranges of the Himalayas. The amazing places and pine forests I travelled through, those fairytale style houses where I stayed as a guest. Apparently I was falling in love with mountains, especially Himalayas.

Then I researched about this style of architecture, learned more about storybook or folkloric style and English Tudor style . After collecting various references from internet, I did some speed modeling as I am not really into modelling. [i am more into other aspects of 3d and post.]

So I decided this will be my kind of dream house. It will be surrounded by pine trees and the lawn grass manicured and maintained as in parks, so that it will give me a mixed feel of the forest and that of a well maintained landscape. The cottage is made of natural rocks which would be available locally. And I decided not to disrupt the terrain much, by keeping it as it is, the cottage will fit the topography, unlike the otherway around.
