this one was the result of playing with the smoke effects and compositing with a cycles render.




Nice job on everything, lots of nice detailing hidden by the renders lacking in sparkle and depth, but I know what it’s like to be hardware crunched… 5 stars against the optimistic hope that you’ll keep polishing and updating the images! The left side of the background needs a lot of love.

would be even better if there were ashes and the tip being less perfect

great job. The smoke looks real. I also enjoyed the texture applied to the ashtray, dirty by the way.
