I’m just a little bit unsettled by the lack of focus, mainly on the aspirin bottle. The desk surface just behind it is in-focus but the bottle in front of that area is not. Now, I do understand that the “fuzziness” is part of the design of the picture … thanks to the noticeable lack of fluid in that bottle.
The unfocusness, i realised, was mainly caused by my bad glow effect. should be gone now right? but also: the asprin is slightly closer to the camera than the pencil. slightly. I did actually reposition the pencil more back into the light, but the render was taking its time, so i’ll show it later.
Nice image, it’s very well done. My first feeling is that the brightness range seems to be off a bit though. By that I mean that either the interior should be darker if the camera is exposed for the exterior, or the exterior should be brighter if the camera is exposed for interior. On the desk it seems to be about right, but I think the wall on the far right is what is throwing it off for me
The desk is a very dark desk, so the image is actually ok with lighting I think… but the new addition to the wall will help.
I would put a diffuse golden reflector
Apperntly my lighting is fine. But I’m also not very experienced in photography and using diffuse reflectors, so it’ll only complicate things. I’m going for realism, not really beauty… if that makes any sense
For the pencil I would separate the metal band from the shaft, it could be in the same mesh just separate geometry, that way you could use edge smoothing to make it rounder.
It’s just the lighting that makes the pencil look odd, i’ll do a close-up render and see what I can do.
you need something on the wall to the right
Very close to being photo-realistic
YESS!!! I’d never say that about my own artwork, so I’m glad you did
the fuzzy glow is sort of excessive
I agree… changed that too now.
Although liquid is a bit lacking a bit of colour perhaps?
I tried something… what do you think now? Kinda hard to see in the low res, but I’ll be posting a full res render soon… it takes about 1.25 hours for full res.
