Karol Grellmann, Maria Fernanda, Marina Gonçalves, Patrycia Malta and myself had to create a 3D scene from a 2D concept, and later on, add texture and render the full scene.

The concept

For the concept, we decided to use this beautiful piece from Cathy Ionescu. Go check her work, it’s amazing!

Concept by Cathy Ionescu


For the modeling part, we used Maya. There were about 71 objects to be modeled.


For rendering the scene, we used V-Ray for Maya.

It took about 50 minutes to render using V-Ray CPU on a AMD Ryzen 9 5950X + 64GB DDR4. Since we are using V-Ray Environment Fog, I couldn’t render via GPU, due the Fog container not being supported with V-Ray GPU.

Below you can see the 2K render before post production.

Post production

Since the beginning, the aesthetics we had in mind was something more like a mix of watercolour with cartoon-ish vibes, to try and match Cathy’s concept.

Here’s the final result:
