I tried having a go at creating an Asian styled ornament. I hope progress is visible if you compare it with my previous projects.
-Rendered at 500 samples
P.S. I am aware of the fireflies near the bottom. The final render took 2 hours on 500 samples and had almost the exact same result as a previous render on 100 samples. Any tips on how to fix this without changing lamp size would be appreciated. Note: i had ‘multiple ignorance sample’ in the world settings turned on and set to 1024.
