Beautiful renderings!

 

The white linework might not be for everyone, but I think it's really cool and lends a nice sketch quality to the renderings. It also keeps it lighter feeling as opposed to black lines.

 

A few nitpicky thoughts if you're looking for suggestions, but nothing too important:

  • The tall curtain in the corner lends a nice soft quality. It seems like there should be some sort or track or something showing that it could be pulled across in front of those doors (unless I'm wrong about it being able to do that).
  • The TV seems too light of a grey. A turned-off TV would be much darker and perhaps include some reflection of the room. (Though I understand not going to dark so it's not a black hole in the rendering).
  • The three pendants hanging over the sink aren't spaced equally which might be intentional but seems odd to my eye.
  • My personal reaction to the white version of the kitchen (third image) is that it's a bit hot / over-exposed.
  • You might experiment with a larger size for Ambient Occlusion. It looks slightly fake in the corners when the walls are white.

Awesome work!

Oh, one other small thing! The pendant lights are missing canopies where they attach to ceiling. That would help 'anchor' them visually. (Do they make canopy-less fixtures these days?)

Very true, haha! The balance between conceptual sketch image and realistic photographic image is a fine line I walk daily.

Beautiful! I personally am not a fan of the white lines but I see your intent behind it. 

For myself, i would've preferred black lines over white :)

@Bas Vellekoop Really nice work and renders. How long did it take to render these images on average? Curious about that given your laptop specs.

Not sure if they do make canopy-less fixtures but once I've seen a solution where the canopy is probably hidden under a film/foil type of lowered ceiling (covering the actual ceiling) with a small hole through it for the wire, so it looks as if the wire is directly coming out of the ceiling.  Making repairs on the fixtures might be an ordeal though as they would have to partly remove the film/foil and then reattach it.

@Bas Vellekoop Thanks for the info, that sounds quite good then for a laptop, it will give me some idea of what to look for regarding hardware specs.

Off topic: I got the xps 15 a few weeks ago. Since then Dell replaced the screen 3 times and the 4th time i got a complete new XPS (2 times several death pixels, 1 time the aluminum finish was a different color and 'rough', 1 time the webcam was broken)

So i wouldn`t recommend a Dell at the moment, their seem to be 'some' quality issues.

The latest (new) laptop has a screen that isn't completely centert in the case/body.

No worries, I wouldn't get a Dell anyway when it comes to computers. Their monitors are usually good, but their computers do seem to have quality issues for quite a while, i.e. if you have a good one it can be really good, if you have a problematic one you have a real problem.

 

Of course it can happen with other brands too. I usually get a barebones built-to-order or equivalent off-the-shelf laptop without preinstalled OS and other trial software (or manufacturer pre-installed junk that I don't use anyway but you cannot always get rid of without issues) and those have so far been serving me well.
