Usually I don't like these entourage people
Well, to be honest, me neither, but my clients don't want empty / arty archviz, so, I have to deal with it ;)

Thanks for the nice words !

Thanks for the kind words.

All the vegetation is done with the help of Scatter for sketchup.

The last 1 looks great. I love those entourages. They look like MIR work.

:oops: Thanks ! :) MIR is always the reference I'm looking for (but I'll never dare to make the comparison !)

Usually I don't like these entourage people, which are inserted, however, in these renders they really add to the scene and are blended in excellently...! :clap:
Me too, I don't like them but here we can see a really great job.

Excellent renders again Mr WIP, you can run the gallery by yourself ;)

Indeed those people look really great, you seem to udnerstand the proper usage for that. Its quite some working getting the size and shades correct. Are you mixing 2d and 3d people?

Thanks Rombout.

Yes, in most of the images it's a mix : picture for the close up, 3D for the background.

Actually, I'm trying to move more and more toward 3D people only. They catch the light way better, they are visible in reflections, and you don't have to struggle in photoshop to add them.

The tendency, with the latest version of Thea, to have reduced render times also pushes in the direction of using 3D people, as changing the position of one of them for example as less impact now (rerendering).

Downside i think the 3d peeps have, most of them look like zombies :shock:

There are a couple companies which have really good looking ones, but the are very expensive. Human Alloy has really nice ones, the premium models they range between €40-80 a model!!. They have sets as well, but still expensive. Here's an example of that, looks super real!

RenderPeople also has some nice ones
