guitar

I did this:
http://membres.lycos.fr/minifilm2/essai2.jpg

(the basis of the guitar model is not from me, i took it from a magasine 's cd (the magasine we can see on blender.org each time there is a news about a magasine) , but i added a lot of details)

I would like add some things: a tree outside (but maybe difficult for me), a magasine next to the cd, improve the quality of the lighting, add a effect pedal, make a better texture for the wall,…

How could I make it better?

There are a lot of little things wrong with the guitar and some small parts missing.

The nut isn’t there, there are no string trees, the headstock doesn’t fall back quite enough, your pickups don’t look like they have magnets (I guess this is ok, since some pickups do cover them like that), your jack isn’t big enough and it’s off center, the pickup selector switch is missing but the slit is there, and the whole thing is rather cartoonish because the colors are all dull. Is it supposed to be cartoonish?

well, here is a closer picture of the guitar:

and I worked on the lighting:

I don’t want to make it cartoonish, but if it is not photorealistic, it is not important. I can’t make realistic textures…

uh… , what are string trees, the headstock

the selector and the magnets are there (if the magnets are those little things on the microphones

I will make a bigger jack

thx for your help shbaz!

oh, and don’t forget, if it smells like a stratocaster, it seems a stratocaster, it isn’t a stratocaster!

if there are other things that i could improve…

héhéhé…

i’ve improve it “a bit”

here it is …

comments, critics and suggestions are welcome of course …

:o yeah just a little bit :wink: I can’t see the tremolo bar on the new one but the old one was awful


The headstock is the part at the top. Notice how it’s recessed from the neck a bit. String trees are little metal doodads to ease the string into the tuners at the right angle ( in the case of this well worn specimen the screw/washer thing)


Classic 5 or 3-way selector had a bulbous knob on the end.

The polepieces on the pickups were not very reflective and darker. They were staggered in height to balance sound.

The image has improved a lot in a couple of post. The guitar stand is a little too big, kind of industrial strength… Anyway for the kind of corner of the bedroom feel this piece seems to have I liked it better with the guitar leaning on the wall (or amp). Keep at it!

The only things that jump out at me right now are the soda cans and the grill of the amplifier/speaker. They don’t really have the detail that the rest of the pic does. I think the issue with the grill is that it looks stuck on. The cans just sorta look… flat.

I think the tubing of the guitar stand is pretty heavy-duty, especially the two black bars that extend to hold its neck. Maybe make these a little “thinner” to reduce their detraction from the guitar itself.

Very nice image, tho! I love the camera angle…

it’s still there… you can see the shadow of the tremolo, even the tremolo itself is not easy to see

Well, I don’t really understand everything.
It has improve in a lot of time, last picture was 1 year old… So it can explain why it improve so much…
i liked the previous stand of the guitar, but it was not very logical… I will never put my own guitar like this in my bedroom, so, why did I put it like this in my picture?
thanks for the images and the explanation !

for the grid, i will remove some bars to make it less dense
and now, for the cans, i don’t know what i can do…

I think i will totally change the guitar stand, to make it more “classic”

Thanks for your comments…

My mistake I did not notice the dates and I guess I hadn’t seen this before.

Because you don’t play it enough (I kid, I kid…) I thought it should have this kind of feel to it:

But it’s your call.

You’re welcome.

Because you don’t play it enough

:smiley:

i can’t put the guitar like this, because, it could make some damage on the floor…

or maybe add a carpet ? %|
mmmh, i will think about this…

thanks again!
