The wars of the Roses

My first image at blenderartists.com . I´m using blender for 2 years now, and I would like you
to tell me, what can I do better next time.I was inspired to do this render by the MMO “The wars of the roses”,and Firefly Studio´s “Stronghold”


did you use cycles?

Mmh… I think that the whole scene, specially the map and the candle, need some subsurf …
Also, I think that glass would improve a lot by giving it some thickness and using the fluid simulator to achieve a realistic wine…
The money bag looks too fake, I assume that you used the cloth simulator for the chainhood (nice work right there), so I’m wondering why you didn’t use it also for the bag, that should also have a more irregular shape, thisbecause now it looks like there is a cylinder in there…
Solve this modeling stuff then we can talk about materials, textures, lights and render :wink:
Remember that mine are polite and constructive critics, hope you’ll find’em useful :slight_smile:
