    Holy cow.

    Next weekend ... no modeling... start the book. Seriously. Don't worry about giving up trade secrets - you'd sell so many, you wouldn't have to worry about working again...

    Well done. Your motives are always very good choosen. I agree with Hopper partially. At least, I would really like to read a tutorial written by you

    That's a lovely piece Jason. Everything works really well.

    My only suggestion would be to tone down the blue shadow but it doesn't detract from the scene.

    Fantastic work as usual, love all the subtle details in the wood. If you printed and framed it, people would totally think its a photo.

    I guess if I were to be picky, I'd say get a sharper image for the bg, its too blurry for the lens lenght. Also, the shadows in the sand clumps are going the opposite way. Thats being extremely picky though, excellent work man.

    awesome, was the floor done with a bump map on a flat surface, or modeled?

    please post a screen cap of your lighting rig?

    thanks,

    Thanks guys. I actually did print it out and it looks pretty good, photoreal.

    Some other people were mentioning the strong blue in the shadows...i guess i never really noticed. The wood planks are modeled. Glad you noticed the details in the wood. I agree about the background image, i had to upsize it since it was kind of small and it got a little blurry.

    The light setup is too simple to post, its basically an area light as the sun and a gradient backdrop color.

    Otacon, this is really superb. It seems so 'simple' to model that I'm trying it out myself, but... yours is so much better. Congratulations!

    that's what happens when something is perfect, it looks easy to do, same with musiciangood s, they make it look so easy, you feel you can do it, he he.

    this is really a nice render!

    Do you set the area light to a specific color (color temp) to look like sunlight? (remember I'm a newbie, I'm aloud to ask stupid questions, he he)

    thanks,
    Derrick

    Images like these are what got me into 3D. Where the artist isn't just using 3D to use 3D or to make something look cool. It's when the "3D" aspect of it takes a backseat to the composition and the art itself.
