Constructive Criticism and advice please
show user profile  cdc02254

Im looking for some Constructive Criticism and help please.

First thing I want to do is add a logo to the glass bottle, but I want the logo to be acid etched or a dusted vinyl look.

I am also having some problems with the top part, I dont want it to be carbon but I am having some problems getting my studio setup right to use another material.

Looking forward to my first real grilling.

P.S. sorry about the link It seems I can no longer paste an image in.

Regarding Jing... You need to manually add the embed button via the customise buttons window in Jing. They removed it by default. You add a blank button (or copy an existing one, cant remember) then assign the embed function to it.

I like the gradient for the fluid inside of the bottle. It looks like a nice render, but I really didn't even know it was a bottle full of something to began with. If you shot it at a bit of an angle I think it would help the viewer get some depth perception and allow them to figure out what exactly they are looking at. The glossy black top looks kind of strange as well. I can't figure out if that is just light reflecting or an actual material/texture that is on the top black section.

On a brighter note I really like the glass that is encasing the fluid, it looks nice.

keep on keeping on

I know what you mean about the fluid, it does say fluid straight away and the top is my biggest problem.

i would say if the design of the bottle cant stand in real life, dont have it standing in the visual.

this is a good little tutorial that will help you with your lighting... oh just thought you didnt mention your renderer, this one is for if you are using vray. i followed it today infact because i dont often do product shots.

Looking at detailing the actual spray thing and maybe play with logo refraction depth.
