I started out modeling a pencil, to help someone out who was stuck in a 3Dsmax tutorial, decided to see how realistic I could make the pencil, then added my fountain pen, and kept going. Here’s the result.
Everything was done within Blender, even the lable on the ink bottle, which is UV mapped, uses a Blender render for the image.
Anyway, I’m looking to push this up a level. Maybe it’s the subject matter, but the image looks so… ordinary. Any suggestions?
