JoolsMcFly: Thanks for the comments You are definitely pointing out things I know are shortcomings but I just burned out on this scene. Except the direction of the tatami, did not know that, will keep it in mind if I decide to go back to revise this image.
The geta was not supposed to show up in this much detail, I originally had a much heavier dof, but they are low poly modeled from a picture of a real pair.
The bonsai was very difficult for me to model, and it was the main reason I just stopped finding this to be a fun exercise in the end, I have much more to learn I’m displeased with how the pine needles show up as well, I used a particle system to distribute them and they intersect with the trunk in several places and are not all aligned the way I wanted them to be.
I will most likely revisit the theme at some later date with a complete remodel of everything. My blend is a mess and things are not at a correct scale, which mess with camera settings and other things.
