Here's render of a pocket watch I modelled in Maya. Lighting is just standard 3 point lighting. I want the over all composition to look like a Baroque classical painting.
It's nice but only critic is;
We can see the jagged texture in the old papers, kind of JPEG compression, and t can't be from your imagem because the watches are fine.
THe table also needs a bit more texture.
And maybe use a bump map for the old papers so that the ink gets some realism with the lightning.
Also just noticed, the piece of the watch that gets linked to the chain should be loose and touching the floor, and not so straight and rigid like they are.
Those are some excellent crits Castor, I'll work on refining them.
this i better suited in the 3d section
My only comment would be the reflection on top of the watches. It looks very blank; you should add a ceiling there, maybe a lamp or moulding around the ceiling/wall joint. Something to breakup the solid grey reflection on top of the watches. Otherwise, GREAT JOB!! very good work!
