Seriously, I’m not saying mines any better but if you call that gold then I’m going to hang myself.
This is true gold colour:
Yes, it may look like yellow shit but that’s because I used the same material for a bigger model, i.e. I didn’t change the noise size when I enlarged Suzzanne. As you can see, my gold material looks fine on the UV sphere there.
I think it needs to be a tinge more orange, judging from these photos.
Sorry, I couldn’t get rapid share working, don’t know how to navigate that site.
Here’s what I got by making it more noisy:
and this is what I got with 3-point lighting + 1 extra colour leak lamp:
I wasnt trying to be rude above… but, like i said, i was just providing my material since it relates to the topic. btw, i think the monkey in your pic looks a little grainy and the texture looks a little repetitive. And the light is a tiny bit off. Other then that its not bad imho.
It’s fine that you’re providing another gold material, I’m cool with it. %|
I like the reflective/lusture of that gold in your picture, that “oily” look I mean. I’ve been trying to get that oily lusture in the past.
The gold you’re talking about is refined gold. It’s been smooth and polished, that’s why it’s not rough. You don’t wear a gold ring that’s sharp and rough right?
Solid gold looks like your picture did you say? Can you see the big contrast between the two colours?
I never said it was suitable for the finished projects, I said explicitly:
"Sorry admins, don’t really know where to put this but I guess it’s finished as in “successful”. "
“finished” not “finished projects”.
I also wasn’t giving material advice to anyone. I offered a material. Where did I write “here’s my advice to you for improving your gold material” or “try to increase the reflectivity or nor and you’ll have a better picture” ?
If you think:
“Seriously, I’m not saying mines any better but if you call that gold then I’m going to hang myself.”
is advice then you’re sadly wrong. That’s my view and opinion about that gold material, not my advice. I didn’t say “oh go and fix this and fix that”.
