View Full Version : Coffee House WIP

05 May 2009, 07:53 AM
A lighting exercise I've started to stay loose. When it's done, I'd like it to be fairly high in detail, and have a nice warm coffee house feeling. I was thinking of adding a newspaper or laptop to the table, considering that's what most people do at coffee shops. This fictional coffee house is called "High Flyers Coffee", and the design on the cup will change. CC welcome. :)

Update. Started texturing the shelves and modeling low-detail objects for the background.

hi looking nice.
one problem I have with it now is that the cups on the table seem to have a window light coming from screen left and yet it has a darker shadow that suggests a stronger source from screen right which is not evident to me.

good start

Yea there's a ceiling light, if you look at the rim of the cup it's barely visible. The physical light node attached isn't really helping. I'll probably have to cheat it and turn the shadows down.
