Thanks so much for the feedback on my last render. Taking the feedback I received from various forums, here is a retake with some different materials on the furniture and some minor tweaks to the lighting. To me the scene holds together better, has less of a sharp contrast between the foreground and background. But as always, feedback is appreciated.
David: Thanks a ton. I agree with your assessments on the render. The building outside is to scale, but there is little atmospheric haze to help establish its distance. Indeed, the overall impression is very glossy. I wonder if the new version is any better in that regard? Also, the SSS is beginning to look right. But the smoothing problems are so very obvious. You might need to use a higher resolution Genesis. Remember the Bridge only sends over low resolution Genesis, you need to do manual export to get a full resolution mesh.
Chohole, thanks for alerting me to the Jack Tomalin Thread, posted and will post the revision as well. Also, I really like the stained glass effect in your version of the Deco scene, very nice!
Waleed: Thanks a ton good sir! I wonder when you will get around to doing your first architectural renders of interiors? I’m sure you will have tons of amazing ideas. Fun Fun.
Jamahoney: Hmm, I too struggled with the light on the ceiling, seemed a bit much to me too. In the new version I have altered the fall off from linear to ranged, and adjusted the range to better fit the room. It did lower the highlight on the ceiling a little bit, but not much. The highlight comes from the incoming skylight and from the sunlight bounced up from the floor.
Horo; Yep, the underside is testy for me too. I should probably do a TA render of this to see how well I’ve done with visual light bouncing, my values could be way off.
Savage: I love verything you do, just want to toss that out there again. I think the lamps look amazing, all of them. I actually like chrome looking items, brilliant all the way! The snake in the sand image looks awesome, seems some filtering was employed to increase contrast and soften focus? The trucks looks awesome. I miss Red Foxx and his crazy son. Didnt know about the British version. Will check into that
TLB Klaus: I love all 5 of those renders. The chess board renders in particular, but the robot Vickie looks cool as well!
Analog: The swirling eye render is very nice, Not surprised it took forever to render. Long render times shouldnt prevent us from going for it anyway. Very nice job!
