I’m currently trying to develop a simple logo for my website and potential online business, www.lost-ear-studio.com. Current;y, the site is extremely rudimentary so I have plan to overhaul it completely and to only show some of my more serious works rather than just basic class works being hosted there.
One inspiration that I have been rolling around in my head is a simple milk carton with the missing kid label on the side. However, the image would show a missing ear. I want to model the ear itself so I can get a decent edge rendering but that will be later. I basically want an high quality image of my logo that I can use on my site’s intro and about page. And to extrapolate from that a simple black and white logo for business card and watermarks.
Currently, I have an extremely low poly open milk carton but I can’t seem to get it to look okay in renders. Mostly because of the normals, I believe. I won’t want to waste times on modelling the inside as it will never be shown.
Even if the milk carton looks bad, I would like your feedback on the proportion of the carton? Something feels slightly off about it to me and I would like to find out before I go too far with this. I will be making another carton with more depth to see if I can get rid of the normals. I will be using the current model’s proportion for the next one till I get some feedback.
I have attached the .blend for you to review
P.S. The low poly thing is just a practice for me. I find that lower poly does helps a lot in organizing for UV map in Maya and I tried the same thing in Blender and that seems to be the case too.
Also, is it possible to have fluid spill into the shape of the word, Studio? I’ll be looking around for this tip but I would like to have ‘LOST’ above the ear pic and ‘EAR’ below. then have the spilled milk in ‘STUDIO’ below the carton on it’s side?
