My First Model on Blender Artist Community

That looks very good – but it needs a third light-source behind the camera to fill in the shadows on the front of the box, beneath the circular thing and so on. Pull a “Histogram” on the image and look for spikes: the curve shape should be mostly like a bell.

And the rust looks to me – how do I say it – obligatory. As though people in the real world don’t know how to take care of their equipment with a simple coat of paint. A well-used machine in an out-of-the-way corner of the shop might have dirt on it, especially where there might be some tiny oil leak, but to my eye “metal == rusty” is beginning to be a CG trope.

(In the real world, that piece of machinery was probably given a [non-paint] protective coating that will last … forever.)

I guess super dirty and too much rust or oil

also bottom bolts are a bit low res
and only top part no bottom for the bolts
a bit unrealistic !

but good beginning overall

was it done in cycles 2.79?

happy cl
