@BillCooper You are very much correct... These are digital and far from the real thing, though what you raise here is an issue of proper title - I'm pretty sure the difference between traditional watercolors and Crilo's method shown here is obvious.
I would love to debate that part where you say "There is nothing that will ever replace the real thing in terms of artistic quality"
You never know ;)

During their presentation, MIR showed photos of their home town and Norway in reference to how a place can inspire you and impact your work. I found this great time-lapse by Rustad Media covering Norway so you can get a feel for it too (other than visiting which is an itch I'll have to scratch one day).

Leandro and Pedro show us in a cool video the process of creating their latest Axis Viana Hotel visual :
"Resume the whole process behind Axis Viana Hotel is not an easy task. We understand that a simple tutorial would not be enough. So we thought doing it in some other way: a breakthrough video from the raw to the final image. Each phase in the workflow is important. More relevant than whether it is 3d or post-production, in the end, everything has to make sense. We are mostly interested in building an approach but, above all, be able to express our idea for the project."

@HeliosDoubleSix Yea!! That's the spirit ;)
Great read on your side... right up top I see a reference to the use of Quixel's painting tools and UE4. I think I've seen this first when @Juraj Talcik mentioned their MEGASCANS product. This is becoming a crazy itch to scratch.
@Lasse_R What insights have you gained so far?
Bam! one more test - this time by @Lasse_R

@Laubwerk @RichardIrvin I hope sooner than later. Having control over the growth of tress is a actually a big thing in archviz. You can't escape client comments regarding trees!

@RettLongmore I can't really comment on that at this stage, but if you look at it from the side of what's being developed and how it looks + considering what engine is used, then UE4 seems like a good choice. I would also add to that the amount of platforms it supports and what that allows to to do with it.
@THINKTANK Not today, but further down the road it could be as both paths head towards convergences. As for the tiny buildings comment, just have a look at what's being done in the gaming industry today - these engines are pretty capable. I see many pros in going real-time as it is now vs. what we define as the gold standard for archviz today. As always - it is project depended.
Congratulations to Jonathan Sabbadini for winning the 1st stage of this Giveaway ;) 2nd stage is still running so send in your images using the link above for a chance to win 45 PETER GUTHRIE SKIES!
@Ajrdn @ronenbekerman Yep, play with the exposure slider and the sky should be visible...
@Ajrdn Not sure I follow you? you managed to get the HDRI to your HDD but then what? or did you not download it...
