A couple things wrong with it.

  1. The lighting does not match the background image.
  2. The shadows are to dark. Make them lighter and softer.

The textures are kind of plain, but thats not such a big deal I don’t think.
Still, for 3 weeks thats very good. I couldn’t even do shadows for about twice that long :expressionless:

Basically, - add a fill light, or global illumination/Ambient occlusion.
Less basically:

And seriously, buy (or borrow) that book.

you know, if you go up to the “file” menu, and hit “save image,” you don’t have to keep taking screenshots.

Just don’t forget the extension. You can control the format in the Scene options, on the right side.
