Majid,

Most of the people are now add directly in 3D in my renders. I've created, little by little, a large library of 3D people, with hand made proxys that allows me to set them precisely, with the right orientation.

I'm working on an advanced version of theses proxies, to show the line of site of each one, in order to be able to set them up more easily.

The only issue with this system, is the memory consumption. I often run into the GPU memory limit if I use too many of them.

Looks like a good blend of 3D people and 2D people.
SketchUp & Thea Render are my tools
What else is there to know? :-)

Oh, it's nothing too complex. I'm just tuning a bit the proxies so they display enough information to set the 3D people properly.

There is picture of the proxy on the front side, allowing to place it without rendering it, plus a small line that represent the direction where it looks, allowing easy interaction between multiple people.

For the seating ones, the proxy is cut in order to show the limit of the 3D character, allowing easily to seat them on furnitures.

I wish such proxies could be done automatically, by some kind of scripting maybe...

Those are excellent. I like the office interiors and the corresponding exterior the most, including the design.

The courtyard night shot looks also very interesting.
