hi, thanks for the replies,
the Sheet Music is text imported into Blender, then constructed piece by piece in 3d,
there is a slight bevel, but it is not visible. It was an actual song used as reference, but due to errors setting up the staffs I had to approximate it, so trying to play it will not be so good.
I see the problems with the textures & lighting, for me this was really an exercise in modeling, setting a task, then completing it.
I may fool around with it again next year, but for now that’s it, defiantly an improvement on the previous works I have posted, but still lacking in some areas.
This is something I will work on in the future, everyones comments & crits have been very valuable & I thank you all.
ps, have you all seen the really great trumpet by robbur,
that’s the real deal.
