I was working on improving my materials and texturing skills, and I came up with this. I don’t know if I am going to take it any further, but let me know what you think.
The map looking great :o but the table looks so plastic :-?
The table needs bump map. imho 8)
the map looks really good!!! besides what aksy already pointed out, I think something needs to be changed on the candle. The candle and the base look like the are one object, like the base is also made of wax and connected. It you get what I mean.
Hmm… is the whole thing bumpmapped? I mean, did you model the map, or is it just a bumpmap on the table? The edges of the map looks funny, like it’s been painted on the table
