Great first work!

Something someone told me once, "There is not a single sharp edge in nature".

Meaning, most of the time, even on things that would appear to have a sharp edge, are actualy beveled a TEENY bit, just enough to throw off a slight glint

Try this on your wood base edges, and your metal "cheese-plate" to see what I mean.

A little bit goes a long way to ad that extra touch of realism.

Great job so far!!

A light source almost always has a diameter, resulting in a soft edge of the shadow.

unless you have a lightsource that is only a sinlge photon wide! although photons don't really have mass, you could still have a "single file" line. haha just F'n with you guys. Nice mousetrap dude! Did ya used to use 3ds or Lightwave?

Actually light itself is a an electromagnetic wave.
So not even that single photon would be straight.

what the hell.. whats the deal with this . I cant even model something like that and its something like my 8th model. You really grasp texturing, and i like how you are learning about Mel scripts already with the twisty wire ... nice job.
