still life with books

I just created this simple scene and wanted to know what you think about it.

Ps: I know that it’s only one book but it sound artistic. xD

> Brighten it up a bit, it can still look gloomy without being quite so dark. It is usually not good to have [almost] pure black in an image.
> Your candle holder material looks wrong, it doesn’t seem shiny enough. If it’s meant to be dirty show that with some

That’s all I can think of until I can see a bit more :slight_smile: but your modelling looks good.

I am craving for the point of image; a focus. Is this about the mask? Is it about the book? Or is it about the candle?

Think Mona Lisa. What is her portrait about? And then you all ways comes back to that question, “is she smiling?”
