Render is too big.. ya have to scroll to see it all, which imo is just sort of annoying.
Materials and lighting needs lots of work.

funky design, but tons of work needed on lights and materials (as Mark says) to make this even a half decent render. but potentially it could look good.

the chair area seeoms ok but once you get to the walls, the bar and the ceiling, WOW! it's brutally busy and hard to focus. I just don't like the brown hanging pieces.

Do a little research into Feng Shui,
At the moment that bar is so messed up with jagged lines and random scary shapes on the roof, that if I had a half of shandy in there or even a very milky latte, I would probably have a break down if it was empty or go on a rampage if full, with the little choc tube thing trying to take out as many people as I could whilst chanting, "the walls made me do it!"


If everyone around you is panicking and you are calm, perhaps you haven't fully grasped the situation

markoid, you on a CRT or something? my monitor is 1280x1024 and i don't have to scroll...

on topic, assuming the fuzzy stuff above the bar is lots of little cylinders (like glass light things...) you need to render higher res for that to not look confusing and... fuzzy.

Parker. You don't have to scroll anymore because i corrected the resolution...The fuzzy stuff above the bar supposed to be fringes (that's the word i think) that are illuminated by a hidden light above them...These images were rendered at 1754*1240 and still i got the confusing result that you see. Iguess i have to go higher with the resolution or change the antialiasing to something more precise like Catmull-Rom.
Erm. Even though i laughed a lot with the persuading powers of the walls, take notice that Feng Shui dosen't work all the time. Althought it has many nice principles when it comes to realize them you will find out that they look "aged" and in many cases overpriced. For example thing the cost of building a bar with round edges and curved surfaces! Not to mention the delivery time... However i'll see what i can do with the walls because we want to avoid any crisis situation!
P357. Lets see if i could change your mind until the end...haha

The truth is that the design has been approved and only minor changes will be made if necessary. Glad to hear your comments but lets see now how i can make these renders better...

The seating area to the right seems a bit cramped.. I cant imagine getting out of the corner with the other table pretty much blocking the way

Here is a ground plan so you can have a clearer view of the project

Seating area seems a bit cramped indeed but lets not forget the owners will to fit as many as possible!
