Good Morning, Life

After almost seven (7) months of research, procrastination, and intermittent improvement after working, I’ve finally finished this piece.

This is dedicated to all of us, the servants of our own mindset, and of this lifetime.

Made with: Blender and GIMP
Rendered with: Cycles

And here’s a video version:


Timing-wise, this will also serve as my homage to BlenderGuru’s Architecture Academy (

I would really love to hear your honest thoughts on this. It’d be nice to hear a version of your interpretation on this piece too. :slight_smile:

Thanks so much for viewing.

Wow, this looks quite good.
I like the nostalgic feeling of the room.
A very homey piece.

Looks terrific, congratulations.

My one suggestion would be to do modify the texture/material for the weights, since they shouldn’t be that bumpy.

this is fantastic , you can feel the dedication you put in it.I see gallery. Great job!

I totally agree with qutorial - that material shouldn’t be that bumpy. The rest is fantastic.

this is awesome :smiley:

You did an amazing work, great image!

The message needs some work.

This is your life (0:03) Do what you love (0:08) and do it often (1:17)

My reaction on seeing “This is your life” is: No, it’s not. You don’t know me.
I suspect what you mean is something along the lines of “You only have one life” or “Your life is now” or “Live in the present”

There is too much time between the second text and the third. Took me a few seconds to recall the second text and make the connection, which is obvious when they are strung together above, but not so obvious when they are separated by over a minute of music and video.

Tilting ALL the pictures and posters hanging on the wall seems forced. Unless a small earthquake just hit. One or two out of line might make the image more ‘lived in’, but all of them out of line seems like the occupant deliberately tilted them, which makes him seem like an oddball.

There is way too much bump on the dumbbell.

Definitely a underrated piece here in the forums. I love the colors and the mood:)

Tips : raising the Max bounce value will make glass more clear and light , not dark glass any more ! :wink:

Thank you so much for the constructive critique, Orinoco. I really really appreciate it! I’ll keep those in mind and will apply them to my next pieces, psychologically reminding myself of such.



I agree with you. However, I didn’t have the luxury of render time during that time. But thinking about it now, I could’ve done a few tricks localizing the Max bounce in that area only.

Thanks for the tip! :slight_smile:
