Thanks Paul. As I said before here are some screenshots of the background models. Nothing too complex or detailed, they're only for atmosphere.

Thanks MetallicJet , I'm doing my best to make it as real as possible.

In the meantime, while flying around my scene trying to figure out what i was forgetting, i suddenly realised that no coffee machine is truly complete without a jar of fresh beans sitting at its side

I really like the setting you have made for this. Especially the light coming through the curtains.. looks great.. can't wait to see more renders! The Movement of the curtains frozen like a photograph is cool. My only crit is maybe the table surface is too reflective. I think the setting of this is going to make it look highly realistic once your done with textures.

Keep up the good work man!

oh another thought.. maybe motion blur on the curtains? like a gust of wind hit just as the photograph was taken. Just an idea..

peace

Thanks a lot. I'll keep in mind the motion blur idea. I don't know if you've noticed in the test render, but the backgorund is already out of focus a little bit. Oh and sorry for my abscence these last few days, but i was out of town and i just came back. Will be posting some more progress real soon.

Ok, i need your help guys. I started texturing but the scene but i'm really not too happy with the curtains. I tried tens of different colr schemes/models for them but i just didn't get what i wanted. Then i tried to make them a little different. Here's 2 fast renderings (sorry about the obvious spotlights, they were done real fast). Which do you think is better?

I made them, of course. It's actually just a quick loft between 2 ep curves and then added a little irregularity (especially for the top part) with the sculpt tool.

And yes... i think the first one does look better. It's just that i need to fix the light glow a little.

i do quite like the colour. The only thing i do think is u dont often see curtains like that in kitchens.
But they do look nice.
