These are the other two villa illustrations created alongside the exterior night rendering a few posts down. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the kerkythea base rendering used for the exterior image. Like the others, a ton of time went into post processing both images. The clients preferred a really monochromatic material selection of stone and concrete. This meant playing up the stone textures and experimenting with different light tones to add a little interest to the illustrations.
You will notice I used the wet street look (tutorial here) for the driveway. I rendered the driveway with a simple mirror reflection in Kerkythea, then added a stone texture and smudged the reflective surface in Photoshop to get the final result.
