Final images from real project

Postby ark » Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:55 pm

Hi guys,
Here my first images from a real project - houses we’re building for renting. So what architecture isn’t financial is :mrgreen:
I know there’s no people, cars and similar stuff... but beside that - how can I make the images more realistic?

All comments are welcome - I’m here to learn :enlight:
And a big thanks to Jan Sandström (Pixero) for the hedges :fro:

I suspect better textures for the sidewalks, walls and roof might help. The roof is very uniform, if it had some variation in color, some weathering...
Avoid those straight-on shots, and shots with too much road in the foreground. I'd try to get some shadows in the foreground. Some shrubs with color to break up the expanses of green. Looking good though!

Two minor suggestions:
1. Curbing has a concrete extension into the street.
2. Shouldn't there be sidewalks?

And, as you mentioned, some high poly cars parked in the driveways will add realism.

Hi Ark, a few suggestions

Generally:

The street corners are square they should be radiused or at least truncated

There would be a road reserve, i.e there would be at least 2 3 or 4 meters in from the road kerb. This is called a setback and landscaping (Plants etc) would only start outside the road reserve on private land. The footpath would be in the road reserve maybe on one side, both or not at all. Consider the logic of the hedge against the kerb forcing pedestrians to walk on the road..... unlikely to happen or be approved by Local government.
Following this logic the walls of the house would never be against the road kerb as shown, as that street would also require a setback, usually owned/managed by Local Government or the department of roads and infrastructure.

The setback is normally where the letterbox is.

The road reserve may include turf/grass treatment. Perhaps with symmetrical street trees of same species the unify the street.

Street name signs may help.

Perhaps consider street lighting although this may not be required on a small suburban street, that depend on local regulations

May help to make observations of real world design of suburbia near that location.

Cheers.

I forgot street "furnishings" You can find lamp posts, mailboxes, benches, hydrants and things to pick up the realism. Maybe there are fences or walls in the background. I sense you are only looking for so much. Not looking for grime or overhead wires etc. I was only thinking of working with what you are already showing.
