I hope no one minds if I critique the entries. If you do not want me to in the future just DM me.
I hope I am not to harsh or picky, these are just the thoughts I had while looking at your image. Its all for fun. I can only hope to have half the funny wit that @Millani had while doing this.
Great job this week everyone.
Texasfunk101: The Crossing
We have a winner!!! Oh wait, is that two S’s in dessert. Sorry sir you have been disqualified, but next time we have a desert theme, Im picking you to win. Great Job.
FlyingBanana: I love Cheesecake
I thought you had it won this week, I think you nailed this piece. It looks delicious, good composition, good render, all around great piece. My only critique would be to add some smudges on the glass cover, the cake cutter, and the napkin holder. I love the swirls on the plate though, great touch.
DM9: Dude…. Trouble!
HAHA great idea to have it from a frogs perspective. I love that he has a fly in his mouth and he is already eyeing his next target. Great composition and modeling, my only change would be the texturing. The flies body look more like rocks and the frog looks like it has a voroni texture. I would change this to a reptile texture https://pixologic.com/zbrush/downloadcenter/texture/ great concept.
3dnotguru: Geek’s Dessert
Not much to say about this one, good job all the way around. I would of liked to see some SSS on the raspberries and have the glass a little bit cleaner, not in the render but some sharper reflections. Actually I would like to see everything just a tad bit more glossy. I always enjoy your weekly entries.
Haha I like your drooling cake monster. A couple things I would add/change, I would of like to see the reflection of the cake in the monsters eyes instead of what looks like fire. You could maybe add a little more drool and put a glass shader on it so it looks more like drool. Just to add a little something extra I would put a cherry or something that the monster loves on top of the cake, just to bring more focus to the drooling part of the image.
Purbosky: from a dessert to a date
I don’t have very much to say about this one, this could of very easy been a winner. It looks like something out of a magazine. I love the bon appetite card, nice touch. My only complaint about this image is something is off with the spoon. It doesn’t look fake but it looks very cheap compared to the nice restaurant you are eating at. I am not really sure how to make a spoon look expensive. Lol
Midnightcpu: Marble delight
It looks like you did everything very well. The modeling looks good, the lighting looks good and the texturing is good. Something that I would change that would drastically help your image is the composition. I don’t know what to look at? I would bring the camera closer to the cake with a nice depth of field and have the ice cream behind it. Also, even though that is a very spotless floor, why is the food on the floor? Maybe dessert for the pets?
That looks like a delicious dessert to me! I love those things. A couple suggestions is to work more with the lighting. It seems a little flat. The spoon almost seems like it is floating. You could use a little harsher shadows. Also it looks like the chocolate pieces are on the outside of the glass. Good job.
Fcharr: Cake Castle
Looks like a fun place to be at. So many colors everywhere. Good job with the modeling and the composition is nice. I would of liked to see the ice cream a little more shiny and maybe some forks for the cake. I know you love a variety of colors but I would try to pick a color theme and don’t deviate from that. I feel the table and the floor are too distracting and take away from your image. I would simplify them a little.
GIPeN: Brownie Ice Cream
Well again this looks like it could of came straight from a magazine. This is also my all time favorite dessert (brownies with icecream or a PIZOOKIE from BJs if you know what that is). Honestly I would throw it up on shutterstock or any photo stock website , you may sell a few a year.
GrimZA: Chocolate Mousee
Good job with the glass rendering. I feel the mouse texture is a little much. I would turn down the bump a little and let it be slightly shiny. Maybe put it at a table to put it in a more exciting place than a white background.
PyBlend: Death by chocolate
Haha this challenge is going to kill us all. I like the mood and the nice lighting. I don’t have much to critique other than the candle flames could all be slightly different, so it doesn’t look like everything was copy pasted. whoever it was that died at least they went out happy.
Green3d: Automatic served cold
I love the idea and great job with the modeling (especially the swirl). I have the opposite advice for your image that I gave others. Everything looks a little too shiny, I would add a little bump to the ice cream and just let a little shine through. Also I would try modeling the cones like this https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/61785/modeling-waffle-shape-of-cone its good practice and will really help your image. The last bit I would change is put a blurred out ice cream parlor image in the background to make it feel like its in the shop. Good job though.
What a cruel joke a mirage can be. I would of liked to see the top of the ice cream and not the bottom of the cup. Maybe you could have the cup in the sand with the “spotlight” shining on it. Just to give it a more interesting composition. Good job.
FortuneB: Desserted Dessert on a desert
A+ for the title hahahaha, I don’t have much to say about this image. Everything is done very well. I like the mood the modeling the lighting. I wouldn’t change anything about it. Although, if I came across that in the middle of the desert I would be very cautious. It looks like someone is trying to trap Superman .
Millani: Little Kiss
Once again, another image that looks like it came right out of a cookbook or magazine. I love how you did the crystals. I would not change a thing with this image. Again I would say throw it up on a stock photo site and I am sure you will sell some.
Zachman: Banana Pudding
Nothing to say at all. Perfect image. I wouldn’t change a thing. Congrats on the win.
I hope you learned a lot from the tutorial. Looks like you modeled everything very well. So next up I would consider watching texturing tutorials just to add in a touch more depth to the image. Also I would watch some photography lighting tutorials to add some more dramatic lighting to your scene. Good job and keep going.
Nitram_2000: Silver Platter
Great job! Again not much to say, most everything looks very good. I would just tone down the bump mapping some on the top fruits and the icing, It’s a little too much. Also the Depth of Field looks a little off to me. I would put the focus on the 1st cupcake as it follows the rules of thirds better than a cupcake in the center. Other than that great image.
OLG: Digestif – my favorite dessert
As always your work is very good. I love how the liquid and reflections look. The nice subtle bump on the cherries is perfect. Maybe the ground pattern is a little too busy for me. A nice antique wood table with the cherries on a napkin and the cups on a nice coaster would help the mood. Anyway its down to preference at this point. You did a great job.
Joshwinkler3d: Baked salted caramel custard
Almost a perfect piece. I love the eggs in the background I love how realistic everything looks. The only thing bothering me is the drips look like they are coming from nowhere. I would add a little bump to the top of the drips so it looks like its coming from the top caramel. Just being nit picky, great job.
Helge: The Heist
I wish I had your creativity, Although I don’t know if the spider is stealing the M&M’s or putting them on (ahhh duh its called the heist so I guess he is a bad spider lol ). I would love to see that turned into a little animation. I also love the texturing you did on the wrapper. As always love it.
I am really curious what your scene looks like. I am having a hard time telling if this was done with grease pencil or are they 3D models with a hand drawn texture?. I love the banana, not sure what the black thing is. It’s a little too much to look at, I am not sure what to focus on. I would take a couple things out and maybe make the banana the main focus.
RobertT: Gliese 5810Compote
HOW!?!? I can’t even comprehend what your 3D scene looks like. Beautiful color theme. I only hope you are printing your art to sell. My only critique would be, quit being so awesome.
