My First project from scratch

Hello all, I’ve been using blender since September 2011, and since then, i have heavily relied on tutorials for everything i wanted to do. but, i decided to create something without peeking into a tutorial for a particular stage (but of course I’ve gathered the necessary know how from various tutorials).

i must first acknowledge i didn’t model the bin properly, I’ve modeled an improved trash bin, but i haven’t rendered the scene yet.

criticism, and all advice is welcome, as i embark on my journey as a blender artist!
