Modeled some furniture in a room.

I really like the feel of the picture. The lighting and the angle really add a lot to it. I'll have to look at it again when I get home when I'm not on such a crappy monitor like here at work.

This is excellent! I love the lighting, very warm. I agree with the camera angle, and the modelling is very well done.

Great furniture & excellent lighting -- my only crit would be that the cabinet glass looks a little off (unless they just desperately need to be dusted). Add some reflectivity and a hint of turbulent bump so the reflections aren't perfect.
Great scene, over all.

The camera angle is a bit strange.

Very well done! Reason for the tilt in the camera? This stands on it's own and does not need the distraction of the tilt.

Agian good stuff.

Just got back in the office after a short but very busy weekend. Is it just me, cause it seems that the only place where I get any rest is at work! My wife and her honey do lists! Anyway, thanks for the critiques. You see so many great posts here and you always kind of wonder if your own work is any good or not, so it was nice to throw something up on the board and get the good constructive responses. Here's another with a different take on the furniture.

Very good!I like the way the light cast itself onto the scene!
good job!

i liked the dutched angle more. but yea, really nice.

Tha camera angle suits better the nice peaceful atmosphere the lighting creates. methinks.

A few props and less perfection (alignments of the cabinet doors) should add more life to the scene. methinks, again :)

Thanks for all the remarks guys! It's nice to get great crits. I'm off on another project now and I'll be sure to post again.

for a zillion dollars I would'nt like to have such an office butů
damn what a beautiful image !!!!

Did you model the entire house ???

And also : I prefer much the second pic for the camera angle but
there's something else that looks different (and that is better) : this
image looks smoother than the first one you know, the angles seems
less sharp etc. Is it just the chance, the compression of the image
or what ? What did you change between both pics ???

congrats anyway !

I like it very much indeed, but I can't help feeling that the shadows cast by the shelves would be sharper.

08-03-2003, 09:39 AM
you're right Arnie,
shadows should be much sharper, except the leaves's ones.

I think the shadows are fine... I doubt they would be very sharp, which would make it look very artificial... And as the light seems of a softer quality... If you look down, right, next to the foreground shelves, you see there is a sharper shadow where the next part of the desk starts... So it looks kind of right to me...

One thing that could be changed with relation to the shadows are it's colors... You might want to have them colored in slightly more, like a nice reddish brown as well... Then these shelves shadow for instance would blend nicely (colorwise).

Just my 2c. Love the image...

you pointed on an interesting thing about shadows.

Actually you might be right about softness of shadows,
though we should know if this is an electric (street) light or a sunlight.

Now it's true there's a relation between sharpness and darkness,
you can't dissociate both of them : the shadows there could stay that soft (or nearly) but then should be lighter !

Guess that the radiosity of the scene should be increased.

Is that your workspace? It's very tidy.

looking really nice

couple of things in the second submission though...
the book sitting on the desk seems to be too bright...(it may have already been said).
Other thing i noticed is the monitor was too grainy on the left.

other than that it turned out quite well
