Bottle beer glass material help

(DymitR93) #1

please help
I want to render a bottle of beer. Unfortunately, I have a problem with colored glass material. I’m inspired by this project. If you have an idea how to do such material, please give me advice.

One thing that you should be fully prepared-for is the reality that your reference shot has undoubtedly been post-processed in a “digital darkroom.” And that it’s perfectly fine to do the same thing with yours.

Notice how the color of the lighting varies throughout the shot.

One thing that is dramatically different is the lighting. Your reference is backlit.

Take a look at these tutorials:

Your render - Photoshop - Dodge and Burn technic.

Inside Blender - just play with lights.

Hmm, how exactly did you do the current glass and beer material? The main difference I see is that the beer is cloudy. Is that on purpose or undesired?


  • The color of bottle and beer is too similar and the cloudy liquid prevents the glass from showing its full glory
  • As others have already suggested, changes in the lighting of the scene might make a huge difference

You’re missing the condensation. You need just a few nodes to accomplish this. You might also want to turn the world setting to black if it isn’t already. If you provide the the blend file I could mess around with it a bit and post the changes.

Thanks for all answers.
I will work on light, and post-pro. Yes, beer is cloudy, because I wanted to diffuse the light. It turned out to be not the best idea.
This is my project file.
