Study Room

I am back on modelling again after submitting my dissertation. I did this study room visualisation with traditional Chinese design style. The design intergrates landscaping and interior to create a sense of tranquility, which suits the requirement for a study room. This visualisation work reflects my current desire looking forward for a rest after a year's hardwork.

It's not very detailed as I did this as a practice. It's really enjoyful to do this visualisation. I love the terrace lily pool especially. A space for reading with the aroma of tea and the sound of water, what a luxury!

Bonjour, Paris!

On my 25th birthday, I decided to something which I've never imagined of. Yes, backpacking alone. There are several reasons trigerring my desire to travel alone in Europe. First, having backpacking with a group of friends may be fun, but it also can be frustrating when there were different opinions as where to go and where to eat. It took a lot of time to make a simple decision, which in turn can be made useful by going somewhere you really wanted to visit. Secondly, it is a good idea to try something different and challenging on a birthday. So, I made up my mind and booked the flight ticket and hostel bed a month before departure.

Travelling alone means no one will watch after you. So, it's important to be fully prepared with travelling informations. The most difficult part was to study Paris public transportation. Basically, the metro network is not that complicated and it connects the major tourist attractions. The tricky part is it's assigned with different zones for stations and this comes with different fares. A valid ticket covering a certain zone is needed to travel 'legally'. If you cross the zone not coverd by the ticket fare, good luck or you can be fined by metro police. Finally I understood how the system works and decided which type of ticket to be purchased.

There were a lot of studies to be made prior to departure.That helps a lot during the trip I must say. Now I am back, bringing fond memories and great experience. I must say that travelling alone in Paris is not hard, it's fun and enjoyful! Glad I made the right decision.

I purposely missed some attractions to justify my return visit to Paris in future.It's a wonderful city and there's a lot to be experienced!

Bedroom Interior

A bedroom interior scene visualised from a photograph. Not that perfect on the curtain, just tyring out a modelling tutorial. Anyway, I admire the owner of this house, having to be close to the sea and sunshine.

Imaginary Bathroom Interior Design

Another piece of my practise work, modelled through my imagination of a bathroom with open air landscape interior. I'd always wanted a bathroom like this, with natural lighting and ventilation, enhanced with lovely greenery.

Kitchen Interior

This is my practise work modelled according to a kitchen interior photo. It took me one and a half day to complete. The more I practise, the more I realise I have to learn. That's the way of life, isn't it?

Stylish Design Toilet- 'A Pleasure to Sh*t!'

This stylish toilet 3D scene was modelled against photographs I took during my trip to Rome. Since this is just a simulation of the interior, it's not exactly built as the actual one, it was intended to appreciate the interior design. That was the toilet I saw at the youth hostel's reception. I was so delighted to see such a stylish- designed toilet and couldn't resist to take pictures of it. If I have this toilet in my house, it would be a great pleasure to 'sh*t' in it!

Visualise with Blender

This exercise visual was done with modelling in Blender and rendering with Yafray. It's not that difficult to learn from the tutorials provided. The effect is comparable with 3DS Max and Vray. An interesting and useful open source 3D software.

Section of No. 83, China St.

This is the section drawing of the " Cheng Hoe Seah" building I worked on. It's a typical shophouse construction with two airwells. The timber staircase at the central airwell was crafted with excelent aesthetical details.
