Juggling Knives

Here is a wip of some juggling knives. I need to smooth out the blades edges some more, but I think the handles are looking how I want them.


Rendered with Yafray using an HDR background for lighting. any crits or comments?

Very nice. Quite realistic, and the knives look well balaced. The shadow looks a bit strange for some reason though.

yea, too much bumpmapping on the ground

Both issues must be from HDR. The ground has no bump mapping. I’ll re-render with more samples. That should help. I’ll also post a non-hdri version for comparison.
