One question; is that a fly sitting on the flank of the sphinx on the left side of the upper shelf?
Oh man I could of really gone to town with this one. LOL ! I made the magazine and books and have my friends on the pages. You cracked me up with that mate.

Now as for that fly.........................congratulations buddy. It is infact a Syrphid Fly, which is a type of hoverfly. I put it in there for added realism. Baaaahaaaaaa haaaha aaaaahhhh ! Actually, Im looking in the file now and have yet to find the mysterious lil sucker.

Wow! Very impressive. If I was able to make anything like that I'd be a happy chap.
However, since you asked for it:
Now that it's been pointed out, that fly on the left sphinx is noticeable - in fact, it's grown from the first render to the second. Don't render too many more times or it'll become a giant!
It depends what feel you want, but having both glasses on the table half full (or half empty, you choose) was neat. But I do prefer the rearranged version of the other objects.
The predator mask is really shiny.... too shiny perhaps?
I'm not convinced by the mirror: if you follow the top of the window in the mirror, it isn't completely smooth; there's a noticeable step.
And a really minor thing is the book on the croc bag. It just doesn't seem quite right to me... perhaps it's sitting too high on the bag (unless the bag is really packed full of stuff) and it's not a hardback(?) yet it's not sagging at all (e.g the corner closest to us)

But hey, as I said earlier, I wouldn't have a chance of making anything like this, so I'm probably wrong. And really, these are super minor things too!

Hey George, thanks for you comments. Most appreciated. As this is a frame from a 10 second animation towards an opening book on the table.................the viewer will not ( I hope not for there sake ) take the time to scrutinize whats there and hows it arranged etc. Dont think Im meaning you.......................but in all honesty none of this will matter in the animation. If for instance this was soley a static shot for a product advertising, then all those iisues would be delt with according to the clients wishes. As I am the client myself in this job..........................I say go with it ha haa !

It all comes down to personal choice bud. I wanted a chromed version of the predator mask and am delighted with it myself. The bag issue....................well, like you said '' IF '' etc. Thats precisely it. Maybe it is full, maybe it is brand new ? Most of whats in this image is a copy of our place and a wide variety of our personal effects. The bag is in fact stiff as a board in real life as the leather skin is think and holds its shape well. I did in fact deform the bag from its original shape and the book was taken into account. How much it should deform is all a matter of perspective. Irrespect of all of this.........................I appreciate your comments and detailed evaluation. Thats how we all progress. None of what is mentioned will be in frame really long enough to matter. The emphasis is the book. As for the mirror.....................interesting point made. Have no idea what that is that makes that seam. It probably is a geometry issue. Im not concerned at all with it .............but you have a good eye for detail George. The fly itself does not get bigger, infact the lighting was changed slightly which effected the shadow. I have searched for the mystery piece of geometry, but have yet to track the sucker down. I will probably leave it in. Thanks again buddy.

This is unbelievable, how did you made this realistic work ?

The only point where I can see it's a CG are the pillows, there are too smooth and clean, some whrinkles could be help here

The rest is like a photograph !!!

A absolut great work !

Congrats on the FP... What was strange to me was the bottle of JD and the glass of beer with no beer bottle in sight (unless the JD has a hell of a head to it and someone is a STOUT JD drinker) lol.

Hey Mylex.....................thanks buddy Making it look as good as it does was a lot of fiddling. For me, Vrays materials and renderer were the first start. There by far the best I feel for this type of work. Lighting of course is the key. So getting the most realistic material settings down and a good lighting rig made this all possible. I have 4 light sources for each of the windows and screen doors ( not seen to the right ) and one key light. I will look into doing something with the pillows just for this shot. Thanks for your comments bud.

Ha haa....................I guess I should add a script to this whole scenario.ha haa !

for example. The half glass of beer got downed quickly by my friend Lois the Beer Guzler. The sexy french maid came in and quickly repoured another glass of Samual Adams Honey Porter in between shots.

Very nice.

First of all, you are not allowed to just say "minus the fly" and leave it at that. So what was it???

@Delta: You know the old Bugs Bunny line "If I do this, I'll get a whipping? I'll do it!"
Jack Daniels is an American whisky, after all, so it probably needs a glass of that horrible tasting stout to flush it down.

There! Offended two major nations in one go. My work here is done.

Officially a piece of geometry from a lighting fixture that went MIA. Buddy you talking to a guy who grew up with Bugs........so yeah I know that line too. ha ha ! Never liked alcohol much when I was younger, espeically spirits. Since moving to Scandinavia I now quite enjoy an occasional Jack or Makers Mark. I actually went to the Glenfidich distillery quite a few years ago when I was in Scotland, which was pretty cool. As for washing JD down with a glass of stout...................ahhhh ya crack me up. Have you put up a giger counter to your bottle of Glenfidich lately ? Ahhhhhhhhhhh now there's a story for ya.

Well the story goes like this. I went to live in the UK in early 1987. When we visited Scotland and went to the Glenfidich Distillery Tour, an american guy ask about weather the radiation cloud from the Chernobyl accident the previous year, had in any way effected the crops etc. Jokes flew by an a cracking pace. One guy said they should put a radiation patch on the bottle, while another said maybe it will gow in the dark. Irrespect of the jokes, it was at that time a real concern................even today there are still reports of livestock still effected by radiation. So for a lot of my mates and me, Glenfidich was always a bit of a joke regarding this..........................though it didnt stop them from drinking it lol !

Very nice work

and doesnt gravity affect book pages ? i mean look at the book resting on the foot stool its as stiff as a board :P


side question....it appears you live in europe, yet you have a distinctly southwestern and western decorating style thats just as fun observation
(im from wyoming - i had to notice the buffalo rugs :P)

HOwdy Ranger......................man these nitpicks are getting a little over the top. Not that I expect worshiping praise, but as a teacher, postive feedback is what makes this all worth while. So being the good teacher I am, I will of course jump at the chance to answer your nitpicks. LOL ! The shoes not being tied up.................now thats a little too nitpicky for me to bother with that one. The magazine is bent...........so not stiff as a board. One edge is even raised. As for the living in Europe comment...................buddy come on, how does living in europe have anything to do with my taste in decorating and the theme of my documentary. Im actually from Australia and live in Sweden and have a taste for rustic furniture and native american art, and it does not make it southwestern. The copy of the bow and arrows I made was from North Dakota, as was the rug. Dont get me out of context here ok, I appreciate your post, and of course nitpicking has its place, but sometimes it does get a bit boring mate. When someone puts in a lot of hard work to produce art, telling me that the boots laces are tied just cracks me up. Hope you appreicate where Im coming from. What did you notice that looked good ?
