Rhienstones

Title says it all.

Not bad, but it seems a bit bright! This one would actually look bad a** using yafray’s full GI method…maybe mix up the colors of the stones too. But, it’s your pic. :slight_smile: My main crit is the lighting though, really too bright to my eyes at least.

Your lighting is blinding in my dark basement at 21:00!! Tone it done, and it would make sense for there to be caustics, but its a great pic!

The image would look a bit better with caustics, do it with Yafray.

I think caustics are a must for this too. BTW it’s spelled rhinestones. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just one thought : the stones look like they all are the same size. It’d be a bit more realistic to give them a more distributed size.

Other than that, good composition. :slight_smile:

Yep, caustics, and fake some chromatic diffraction in there as well :stuck_out_tongue: (see http://www.elysiun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=278782#278782 )

they are not very well cut - look at this:
