Pillows and Sheets (REVISED)

I learned more about lighting over the past week. I worked on the lighting and started compositing. I think the output came out well! Please post your feedback! Thanks. :slight_smile:


Nice render! I would probably try tweaking the glass material on the object in the foreground. Other than that, everything looks pretty good.

Hello again.

Before saying anything, I think this is a good improvement to the last render you did. Looks much more clean and less disorienting. The lighting makes the picture more fresh and easy to look at.

Also, what’s the aim of this piece? Just to show pillows and a cloth on the floor? (Nothing wrong with that, haha)

Anyhow, some things I would like to note:

  1. The blanket (or cloth) is floating above the ground
    1.5. The other part of the blanket looks like a perfectly flat board (like it’s made of plastic or similar).
  2. is the glass supposed to be upside down?
  3. Edges of the glass are too sharp. Lots of real world stuff does not have sharp edges.
  4. The meeting of the wall and the floor could have those “wall trims” that are especially common in houses. (Ex: Google: http://media.homemadesimple.com/en-US/homedecor/PublishingImages/Feature/chair-rail-wall-trim-tv-med.jpg )
  5. I do not like the DoF in this piece. It blurs out the pillows and makes the details harder to see. I think a minimal DoF could be a better approach or a focus on the “pillows and sheets” rather than the cup and the foreground.
  6. Good job with the color scheme. It’s nice and simple. The two tone of the wall fit well with the pillows and such.
  7. The glass cup has some interesting reflections. The black corner particular stands out. I’ve always been annoyed with rendering glass in blender starting out because of the harsh reflections of things outside the scene. Are you using an HDR? those can help with weird black things in reflections. Other than that, it could be the model of the cup itself (And once again, the cup is upside down? did it look weird when it was right-side up?)

That’s all I have to say about it now. I wonder where you’ll end up with this piece. :slight_smile:

edit: oh, why abandon the old thread? I know this isn’t “works in progress” forum but the piece is still essentially the same right? No big deal though.

Thanks! I think it is much better!
Yeah I noticed the blanket when it finished rendering and there was no way I was rendering again because It took forever. The glass still needs lots of improvement And this was the first time I ever tried DOF so I think I could work on it. :slight_smile: thanks for the advice!
Lol. I’m not sure why I didn’t post this on the old thread. Didn’t even think about that! :slight_smile:

I forgot to say that yeah the aim of the scene was to test my pillow models that I made and to work more with cloth. :slight_smile: just a little fun project. My next reject will be a bedroom for a penthouse apartment Scene I’m working on. :smiley:

Project* I made a typo :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok got it. How long did it take you to render? Using cpu rendering?

Also, for your information, there’s the “edit post” button instead of bumping your thread three times.

It took 49 minutes to render. 1000 samples. Yep. CPU rendering. :slight_smile:
Yeah I discovered that right after I posted the correction. :stuck_out_tongue:
