I think I am completed with modelling and texturing this piece. However, I wanted to ask for some feedback/critique before I render the final size (poster size).
I feel like my modelling etc is fine, but I always seem to fall at the last hurdle at squeezing everything I can from the image.
Here I’ve made some simple changes - In this version I decided to use HDRI lighting, instead of my initial more flat lighting. I also added some film grain, some blur to the corners and a little sharpening. I then used the “pop” filter on google photos to edit it a little further. Maybe it’s too much.
I’d be really interested to hear how it looks on multiple devices - is it too dark? (is there I could “normalise” this?) etc.
The final piece will be rendered at 14400x9600, so that I can be printed poster sized.
