I’m fairly new to blender and this is my first attempt at making a realistic image (as well as my first post). Any comments are greatly appreciated!
good first effort:D
modeling looks good, saucer has nice edge detail
a little too much reflection, the eye is drawn to the reflection and away from the piece
I have to agree with lilo about the reflections, but for a newbie this is very impressive. Better than my stuff when I first started out! I think the tea itself needs a bit of texture though. I’m not saying cordouroy or anything, but it needs some “wateriness”. I’d personally extrude inwards in rings a few times and alternately move each ring inwards and outwards (ie up and down) towards the centre.
I like, I like.
Ps, Nice usage of tea. /english
But I agree to the two posts over me. Give the tea some nor texture to make it look more like water. And maybe give the cup some reflection and add a photo of a room as a background image. IMHO this will make it look much more realistic.
Keep on blending!
