Hows this look for my first gold ring? Try to ignore the background, it’s weird.
Cool, but what’s going on with the background? Is that the Taj Mahal in the reflection? Nice Color, reflectivity, and specularity seem to be spot on. The width of the ring seems a little too wide for my liking, but I’m not so sure. The hand is actually pretty awesome the way you did it looks all abstract-ish. Good job!
well, it’s clear that you used an panorama. I’d try to go to debevec’s hdri light probes for that intstead of a panorama view. The ring seems to be a little thick, oh, and you can also add a studio backdrop to make it more appealing to the eye.
