Hello @ragupasta it's been a while I did not see you online. Great entry so fart. I will fix a bit the shaders (the grapes look a bit glassy) and then start working one light a time trying school. Why don't you try a Rembrandt lighting approach ? Can you post your setup ? That will be helpful for giving you feedback. Thanks

Hi jojo.

The lighting is not too far away from Rembrandt-esq lighting setup. It's 2 vray area lights setup similar to Rembrandt. The difference is I have GI turned on. I should probably turn it off for the more contrast type look that Rembrandt serves. Yeah the shaders do need a lot of work yet, especially the grapes. Takes a long time to try and get the SSS right. Once that is right, I'm going to add noise to the surface as you tend to see in grapes, so translucent parts, and some parts not translucent.

Any more suggestions would be very welcome.

Here is the setup.

Hello ! Yes, there will be challenges in the future, we are organising new one. About the image, I think that's more a kind of a simulation challenge Very funny indeed m it will be useful to see how you manage to create it

Hi everybody,

I'm looking for the scenes of challenges #41 Vanita SSS.
Does anybody have it ? The links don't work anymore.

Hi guys,

Just have a go at LC 44 Getty Benchmark for the eggs. Simple but hard to finish. Good for Look dev and lighting practice. Here it is :

Done using Blender and Cycles. C&C are very welcome.
