Our final ArtWanted! feature of 2022 sees the return of a familiar face, as Chinese 3D artist Ruming Cao has once again wowed us at the Rebus render farm with another impressive display of his versatile abilities. While his previous works mostly focused on interior design, his latest submission ‘Junkman’ is a scene of high technical complexity and cleverly veiled environmental commentary. Driven by a seemingly unquenchable thirst for knowledge, he is determined in his pursuit of becoming a well-rounded generalist.In our interview, Ruming discusses stepping out of his comfort zone, reflects on asset creation, and talks about his inspirations and ambitions.
While winter is slowly but surely taking hold of the Northern Hemisphere, Sepehr Mohajerani invites us to his ‘Modern Summer Interior’ to soak up the last rays of sunlight, an offer we at the Rebus render farm are more than happy to accept! From his early college days, when 3D was just a hobby to becoming a full-fledged archviz artist, Sepehr has come a long way – not only in the figurative sense, as he relocated from his home country of Iran to Italy, where he works as freelance interior and exterior designer.

While many people value professional fulfillment more than success, not everybody is fortunate enough to achieve it. Rarely do business and pleasure go hand in hand as much as they do for Ehsan Salehian. Listening to the Iranian architect and 3D artist talk about his work, you can immediately tell he has found his vocation. But it was not passion alone that allowed Ehsan to prevail, but determination and hard work. Today, Ehsan manages two companies, and still makes time for personal projects, such as the neat living room he submitted to our render farm.In our interview, Ehsan recalls his humble beginnings, talks design philosophy and getting into the proper work “flow”.
“Here’s to the new us!” As the world around us continues to change rapidly, what remains the same is our enthusiasm for the 3D community and the outstanding work its members share with us at Rebus Render Farm. This month, senior character artist Joshua Wu blesses us with his evocative depiction of Jinx, the well-loved loose cannon from the ‘League of Legends’ media franchise. Not your regular piece of fanart, Joshua’s 3D rendition faithfully captures the essence of the character through a more photographic aesthetic, and was very well-received online.Check out our interview to learn how Joshua struck the right balance between photorealistic and stylized and gain insight into his creative process!
The drive for artistic expression is a powerful force. When Brian Salvatierra and his wife Dariana Pitti quit their office jobs to found adetalle studio in pursuit of more creative endeavors, it was like “jumping into the abyss”. Still, it takes but one look at the outstanding work they and their team produce, to fully understand their decision. Their project ‘Lantana Residences’, a tropical Costa Rican neighborhood, has been making the rounds on social media lately, and we are eager to add to the well-deserved attention with our Rebus Render Farm August 2022 ArtWanted feature.
Continue reading, as Dariana and Brian offer a fascinating insight into their professional life and creative process, including a concise account on how to make the most out of your reference material.
Over the last decade, the Iranian archviz community has made a name for itself, producing a steady flow of talent whose services are in high demand all over the world.

There are countless reasons people start their own business: a more flexible schedule, full financial and creative control, the ambition to make a name for themselves. When Brazilian architect and 3D artist Gustavo Görgen joined forces with his friends Marina Capalonga and Eduardo Possamai to found Do Studio in 2019, he was above all driven by the wish to be part of something bigger than himself – a common goal, a shared vision, and the belief that collective efforts surpass individual ones.
We sat down with Do Studio's three founders to discuss their joint venture and deep dived into one of their most recent projects, the 'Edificio Varandas'.

Valentine's Day has just passed, but our love for 3D is certainly not bound to a specific day of the year. For our February 2022 Render Farm ArtWanted! feature, we have successfully courtedHamed Zand, and he graciously gifted us some eye candy, which we are more than happy to share with you!
Hamed Zand is yet another talented artist from the thriving 3D community in Iran. Based in Urmia, the 33-year-old has a degree in architecture, with his fascination for the field dating back to his adolescence, when he first laid eyes upon architectural photography. His passion eventually led him to 3D software, and he did his first archviz job in 2014. Today, Hamed mostly works with 3ds Max, Maya, and AutoCAD.
In 2018, Hamed joined forces with his friends Aqil Sayyah and Sheida Lotfi to find Xavi Studio. Initially, with little money and lackluster equipment at their disposal, the three of them have been working tirelessly to consolidate the company. Although Hamed tells us they still struggle with the occasional client’s lack of financial commitment, Xavi Studio is slowly but surely making a name for itself in architectural visualization and object/product modeling.
For his interior design work, Hamed prefers a minimal and modern style, with special emphasis on soft lighting and dark, more subdued color palettes.

At first glance, the distinction between interior and exterior in architecture and design seems clear-cut.

An interior designer specialized in furniture, fixtures and equipment, Omnia has also enjoyed working on several outdoor areas as part of a series of projects for Balance Decoration.

The relationship between architecture and nature is a conundrum as old as time. When Iranian CG artist Hamid Reza Goli encountered the site of environmental degradation, he was immediately inspired to counteract.

The result, the ‘Koi House’, is a blend of contemporary architecture and traditional Far Eastern aesthetics, bridging the gap between past and present, and pointing to a reconciliatory future.

In 2020, the Chicago History Museum partnered with the filmmaker, Geoffrey Alan Rhodes, to produce a virtual reality experience of the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. The centerpiece of the experience would be a recreated ride on the original Ferris Wheel using historical photographs, taken through the windows of the passenger cars more than 120 years ago, matched with VR drone photography above the site, and a 3D animated recreation of the wheel and the car interior.
This case study describes the project, the process, and the essential role of RebusFarm’s generous support.
