A new month, a new theme:

MATERIALS


Inspiration image by eyewoo

The challenge is to render the 3D model (below) in any of the following materials:

* Plastic
* Metal
* Glass



Source image by WEB 3d Service

You can resize to taste. 2D and 3D accepted, digital and not. Feel free to cross-post images into other relevant threads, and to post older images that fit the theme.

Last Month: SQUARES

Its a very good theme and very challenging, I was going on intuition and some ref as opposed to thoroughly understanding the transit through the material, I'm going to do some more studies on the base primitives as this is quite a complex object to grasp the mechanics about it. Would be really interested to see others have a go and if anyone has some good articles about it id be really interested to see those too.

Cheers!

A post on the last day! That's how you win a theme. Smile

Nicely done too. Very glassy.

I'll leave this thread sticky for a while, just in case anyone else is inspired.

Yea I agree, to render materials with a brush
is a difficult task for sure. I tried plastic a couple
of times but failed, I believe to make white plastic
convincing was and is the hardest I believe.
With metals and glass and such you can always
play with reflections.


That picture from eyewoo is really nice btw. Very Happy


Here's my play with colors....

This one is very late but ultimately I wanted to do this exercise.. I went for 70% analyzing planes and 30% intuition. Really tough to get the right feel.
