Website banner

This is a new banner that I designed for the top of my website. I used blender for the cube design and gimp for the part on the right.

Personally I would lose the highlights on the left of the banner. It looks a little weird with the fade to black but then highlights in the “faded” section.

Other than that I think it looks pretty good.

Maybe also give the cubes a slight bevel for them to catch highlights in a bit more realistic way.
You should also consider boosting the mirror value. Looks a bit too simple to me at the moment.
Simple can be cool, but that’s only when you do hot materials - the ones you have now aren’t
really that interesting.

Keep it going. Good work!
