Like a Drug


Something I did a little while ago... Thought I needed to add something here and yep that is a dA logo :D. I'm a whore with my images.

It gets the point across, and makes very efficient use of limited textures and geometries. A few critiques:

The pills look decidedly un-pill-like, but you can fix that by (a) decreasing the specularity and (b) increasing the "noise" size on the pill's surface. The deviant-art logo has its own shadowing effects that don't match the lighting of the scene at all; this ruins the realism.

The wrapper is too perfect. Bend it a little, then add some noise in the silvery color texture. (My opinion is that the noise size should be big but the difference in colors should be small, but that's just my opinion.)

The image that's reflected in the wrapper and the wood is a nice touch, but it leaves the rest of the background feeling all the more empty. I think filling the space would be better, either with new objects or by zooming in a little more on the pills and wrapper.

This looks like a quick scene thrown together, but it has a lot of potential if you care to go back and improve on it. And hey, I like that you beveled everything!

Firstly big thanks for taking the time to review this image (I hate the term review for art) critique this image :) I was sort of hoping as newgrounds I'd get away with a lot more than I did lol.

The pills always bugged me but they were added at the last min, dA logo looking odd is down to it being an over inverted bump map (cringe).

The wrapper was the main part for this image for two reasons, the scratch made plastic texture as a test I could still make my own as rely too much now on stock textures now days and working in spline modelling as was something In really needed to get back to using more. The silver texture has that crosshatch pattern on it you get on pills but doesn't show up unless rendered in really high res.

Thanks for taking the time to have a good look :)
