I can sum this picture up with one sentence: "Spheres on a plane with fancy textures".

Thank you and Enjoy!

Amazing

Really amazing. Good job! Makes a new wallpaper for my desktop.

Thanks a bunch!


Basic, but working

Well in its essence its pretty good, but its look really CG. The "8" ball doesn't really seems to exist, but the bump is really good, the reflection could be worked on a bit. The small crack on add to the realistic making it look like imprefection and than the point.

The bump of the table mat isn't working. It look more like leather than... you know fuzzy green.

Your composition is good, even if I feel its missing a mid range close up. Something between the foreground (8) and the background (Orange, Purple, yellow balls). Yo could have but yourself a bit closer to your number 8 ball and this would have been even more powerful.

But don't worry its not bad at any means. I'm just nit picking to help you make better next time. Overall its a pretty nice piece of art.


FlipWillie responds:

Well, I don't really agree with you on the 8-ball. In fact, I find that it is the most realistic (existing) thing in the image. Viewing on full size really lets the 8ball stand out. However, I appreciate your comment.

On the table surface, I 100% agree with you. I actually debated whether I should upload it like this. I tried many different techniques on it, but they all failed. V-Ray fur looked promising, but I don't have 2 days to let my computer render. I am sure there is a good, fast way to do it; I just don't know how.

You know, I agree that something is missing in the overall composition, but I am not sure if the framing - as you mention - is it. It may be. I would just have to see it changed.

You are also correct that it is basic. Essentially, I just put some spheres on a plane and applied fancy textures. However, for the effort I put into it, I was really surprised with the results-even if they are basic.

Thanks a lot for your comments. As much I enjoy straight praise (see below), I love to hear from people with detailed opinions. Thank you for your insight.
