very nice
good luck then

Nice image!
Even if the sky is a little too dark blue to be real but it rather fits the mood of the scene.
Why is there a mini fence around the barrel and tap? (That’s the 1st thing I wondered when I saw that image. For some reason this fence looks out of place to me. Maybe it’s just me :D)

if it’s thirsty days it means there’s no rain which means the dirt is dry which means that a breeze whil kick up dust into the air coloring the color of the dirt. assuming from your enviroment, this is sourthern US or mexico, that would be a tan/sandly color. the blue sky is a very good blue but i don’t think it matches here. cheers

I like the cast shadows. Are they image based or do you have off screen cutouts blocking the light?

Thank you…thank you… i appreciate your considerations…

Rore…are supposed to be ceramic tiles…they’re mortared together as is the bottom w/drain…that all got lost…such is life…in Blendodreamland…

Radialronnie…there is no wind…with a sky so blue…and paint to dry…maybe another day…good idea…

linuxpimp21…buffer shadows…halfway…geometry blocking light…

…do you feel the water woman relief fits…?

To be honest, I didn’t know what it was :stuck_out_tongue: But now i see it! Ya, I like it. Is that sky the default blue?

Hmm… it’s to clean. Try adding some grunge textures etc, other than that, it looks good!

My 2 cent: make your textures dirty :slight_smile:
They are clean, too much clean in the areas I’ve encircled. In those areas object interact so they have to be dirty and they will gain a lot in realism.

…another day…a slower fade to dark blue(seemed to be an issue with some)…some dirt splash …thanks for the input…feels better to me…

That’s a lot better! Good job with the dirty textures!
