If you placed an artist at the chair in the center of the frame I think it would work well. That's my two cents, very nice work still.


@tuffmutt1 - I agree with zmuh11 about the composition, an artist in the chair could be a very nice touch. I think overall it's looking great. One comment I have for you and everyone in general, and this could only be me but the art studio I work in is filthy with art supplies. Every surface has been touched by charcoal, graphite, oils, turpentine, etc. If you can effectively add some of that to your scene, I think it would take it to the next level. Great work though!

Just one suggestion. The scene is thought to give lots of possibilities. I mean people can focus on the tables, vases, on the still life, on a overview of the scene. It's quite comples so I invite everyone to explore all possibilities !

I was planning on doing this in Vray, but seeing that Jeff Patton entered the ring I just might have to stick to MR with this one. Having a MR guru on board is just a too great opportunity to miss

Tuffmutt1 - Looking good already - some nice shaders, especially the blackboard in the back. I have to agree that the harsh difference in color temperature coming from your skylights feels somewhat out of place. Maybe im wrong. Id love to see a real photo with this kind of setup.

Nayak33 -Good start. I love the wood material on the table on the right. The painting gets a bit lost cause its colors are too similar to the lamp and the back wall. Might wanna have a look into that.

FrankThomas - Besides of some weird areas rendering dark, it looks good already. The soft shadows look really nice. Keep it coming.

Jeff - Interesting to see ure working with Iray. Ive only seen an introduction of it on mentalimages. Looks like a powerful tool. The beams will sure make the ceiling less uniform and give it more interesting appeal. Hope to see updates soon.

thanks for the complement.your scene also pretty nice but you need more color variation in your scene,it's look more batter.

The fbx works fine here, but you have to invert the normals of the right side windows.

Mark II version. Increasing the clutter and working on textures, still got plenty to do though.
I actually ended up remodelling the whole room and ceiling. Added a couple of I beams to hang the lights off (even though you can't see them from this angle)

It had some minor post adjustments (contrast + glow + Chromatic Aberration).

Update:


I'm not really digging my ceiling joists here...back to the drawing board on those. Lot's more work for me on this one.

PS - Does this image look overly dark/contrasted for anyone else? I recently purchased new monitors and I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is due to my monitors or what. It looks normal in Photoshop & other apps on my workstation but when I view it in FireFox online it looks like the gamma is screwed up. Odd.
