A image I did a while back as a lighting study, just got around to finishing it. Modeled in Blender and rendered in Cycles.

Looks great!

Very good render ,very realistic, is more similar to moka coffe, than a espresso it’s a texture?
Any way i think it’s a very good render.

Nicely done, the steam may be just a touch too opaque. I’m curious on how the bubbles in the cup were done.

nicely done, I like the smoke and bubbles.

Thanks for the compliments!

I agree the steam may be a little to dense. The bubbles are a texture then sculpted to add some depth to it, see the screen grab below.

Thanks for the bubble breakdown, it seemed to work well.
