I’d add some surface imperfections, maybe even mesh damage, and use HDRI lighting for reflections, it will look much more realistic.

i know @Acrivec but i wanted to made it with fire & ice Lighting style like game of thrones!
Kinda dead vs living

Then still - either wooden opening style, that will require some kind of wear-off, and ice/fire means reflections so either hdri or some hand-made hollow sphere with sun model in the middle so that ice have actually something to reflect, not plain background and one lamp. :wink:

it had reflection of Light actually even looks cool… but i felt it might wont look that cool… so i hiked up the roughness… @Acrivec
but if you say then i will let the reflection shine then!
it shine like light is being emitted from intense source of light!

Rough reflection like now is still a reflection. :wink:
