Rammed Earth (ship) style Home

One of the first batch of Renders I got out of Sketchup, with Twilight Render.
Lots of help from places like this online, Daniel Tal's book (managed to get it from the Library here in Taiwan....in English....amazing...)

Had some experience with Sketchup, 10 or so years back, and Layout. Rendering seems to be a whole different beast, but I'm amazed what you can do. Definitely keen to learn more, and have been absorbing books, forums and Youtube....so much too it.

Lots to do (worktop edges - maybe back faces or something....cabinet doors - might have dialled in a procedural render setting that messed up)...

I'd be very interested if anyone has tips or suggestions especially to do with Render time. Plenty on the list to work on there - have already tried 2D instead of 3D plants...but...the 3D plants look so good.

Working on designing simpler cabinets for the kitchen because the ones I got from the 3D warehouse seemed to have a million bits in the model, and screws with threads on & stuff. Which is nice, but this render took about 15 hours ;-)

So, here it is. Thanks all for you help, even if you don't know you helped ;-)

:thumb: this sentence is a nice gesture to this place :thumb:

since this is your first post here: welcome to the forum and when I see your brilliant debut this step is long overdue :thumb: :D
(By the way, I think most of us experienced and sometimes still experience these 15 hours numbers :D )

Great render! I once visited some friends in their Earthship house in Taos. Very cool.

Thanks for the welcome HornOxx.

Even though it's kind of my first render, well, you know, probably the 10th or 15th with render times, ....but getting somewhere where I can see the light of day - it kind of feels as though I should edit the tags of any render I produce with a very long list of acknowledgements & thank-you's.... ;-)

I'll keep plugging away!

Awesome ;-). Bit of a pipe dream at the moment....very interested in doing the academy thing in Taos with all those Earthships....get some hands-on experience before attempting my own.

A brilliant first, dood, I think we will more and better. You have the tools and the method of improvement down pat. Looking forward to more.

I have to say, I was disappointed when I clicked and it was not a spaceship, I was so excited somebody had made the spaceship from Renzevouz with Rama: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendezvous_with_Rama (the first hard scifi book I ever read as a kid)... but this is a really good render well done!! Especially first go this is some very good work!
