After joining Lightmap in late 2017, I was set the challenge of creating a Christmas themed image to be included in the companies Christmas email, which required using software and techniques I was relatively unfamiliar with. I found this project to be very challenging, and I have to admit, it didn’t go exactly to plan. By sharing my progress with you, I hope I can highlight all the challenges I faced, and the solutions I learn along the way to improve my skills as a 3D artist.

Season’s greetings from Lightmap. It’s on this note we have a lovely festive project to share with you.
This holiday season Dose Pictures wanted warm up their creative skills and give back to the community. The Holiday Dreams Project was created in collaboration with Green Star Movement, a nonprofit that inspires students and community through the creation of public art.
The Dose team needed to create 5 different, unique illustrations for this project in a very short amount of time. While 2d digital painting was used for most of the pieces, artist Chris Boyd thought it was a great opportunity to use CINEMA 4D, Octane Render and, of course, HDR Light Studio.
The narrative for this holiday image was, “design the coolest gingerbread house.” In which Chris had to interpret the young students drawing into a fully realized 3d illustration.
Here is the original drawing:
