For this image I was trying to create a realistic exterior daylight scene. I wanted to tackle the challenge of having some xGen assets as well as some dirty texture maps. I was going for a mid afternoon look with a warmer summer feel.
I used Maya and Chaos Group’s Vray for this image and I did a little bit of color correction in with Adobe After Effects. I created all the shaders, textures and lighting for this scene.I did this one quite quickly, spending no more then a day from opening the scene to the final render with about 1 hour for compositing.
The models were downloaded from 3drender.com and were used for the Lighting Challenges on CGSociety.org
