Modeled and rendered in Strata 3Dpro 3.9, except twig, which was modeled in Form•Z. All textures except table hand-painted in Photoshop.

Nice work, but IMO, I think the reflection on the peach that's cut open should be turned down a bit.

Hi Marcia,

I think this is great. I started my freelance 3D career with Stratavision 3D about 10 years ago! I also used form.z for modelling. It's great to see Strata renders out there. I can't remember seeing any as good as your peach skins. they're really nice!
I do agree that the refelctivity of the juice is a bit high though.

Great work!

Thanks, guys. I think you're right about the reflection on the cut peach. I toned it down a little; see if this looks any better. Also, the original image had the wrong color profile assigned, so it was a bit washed out. This one shows the color better.

Very nice work there. I really like your textures and the peach fuzz effect looks good, but I think it is a little too strong. Try toning it down a little and allow the colour of the peach skin to come through with a little more vibrance.

Looks great, especially the peaches in the vase.

But what is taking away from the overall perfection for me is the longer branch and the cut open peach doesn't look right(they dont have that much fluids in them, it looks a lot dryer when cut open)

Okay, so the cut peach needs to be moist, not sopping... and more of the skin color and texture need to show through the hair. Sounds like good advice.

Part of the problem with the muted colors is that the hair needs to be both front- and back-lit to keep it from turning black in the shadow areas. I'll have to experiment with that a little more.

Thanks, guys!

the first impression i got after seeing the peach split open was fear, the thing in the middle reminds me of blood.

freaky stuff LOL other wise the stuff in the bowl looks good.
