Welcome to my blog site. This blog shows some of my art works that includes painting, ceramics, computer media, photography and other processes. My name is Nomer Adona, I graduated as an architect and urban planner. Currently, I am an IB, AP Art and Design teacher here at Saigon South International School Vietnam. I also teach elective subjects like photography and ceramics. This is my online journal where I wanted to share my thoughts and my knowledge not just with the field of art and photography but with my hobby, 3D Visualization.
I have been using 3D max since its first release 3DS max 1.0. I still remember buying all those 50-70USD books. It was difficult at that time to find online resources. Well, I was impatient with it. I was drawn with animation more than 3d rendering at that time. When SketchUp was released, together with an array of different rendering software other than scanline, I fell in love with its simple UI and productivity. Since then I shifted my workflow from modelling from autocad- importing to Max, to just SketchUp when it comes to architectural models. With the introduction of various rendering software like podium, vray and hypershot, the more I got stuck with this workflow. I still use and re-visit 3DSMax from time to time especially in final rendering, but many times like in Photography-bringing only my all around lens. Nowadays, 90% of my visualization is using SketchUp and VraySU.
I hope you will find the tutorials and resources here useful.
