I dont “Blend” usually but i did this tonight. Just a knife
good work man, i think if you make the sharp edge more obvious (crease an edge) it will look better
and a little trick press f# and you can save the render so you dont have to take screen shots
nice knife, btw.
I’d say make the shadow a little more oversampled. Use an area lamp and set to rayshadow. then where it says samples, go maybe 3 to 5. how long would you say that took to model?
