Enter a world of vibrant and inspiring 3D creations with these impressive entries for the 13th Annual Rookie Awards.
Nahuel, a 24-year-old from Buenos Aires, discovered his passion for drawing and generating ideas during his architecture degree in 2019. After feeling unmotivated due to the pandemic, he came across the world of 3D, rendering and architectural visualization. He found his way to butic The New School to learn the necessary skills for his passion. He now looks forward to showcasing his completed projects and continuing his professional journey in this field.
During an introductory class at butic The New School, we built a 3ds Max model of the Jesolo Lido house by JM Architects, which helped us learn modeling tools and how to make our first renders using V-Ray. The quality of my images has improved a lot since my first render after a lot of practice. I am very happy with my progress and improvements.
