As always my Final Renders are never really final renders but I'm quite happy with it so far. Please Crit (if you manage to draw yourselves from watching the Olympic Games).

[edit] Thought I should put up the pic that this is (loosely) based on.

Nice work , looks good.
If you want critic I can say the dimensions are a bit off (very little) and the floor
reflective and glossy, may be the shadows are bit sharp every thing else looks great.

Thanks for the crit Master Yoda. I'm actually not concerned about the dimensions too much as this is just a personal project but I agree, the studio should be longer and narrower. I fixed the floor to make it more glossy, thanks for the tip.

I also had a day of extreme fun trying to get the render to not fuck up. I had added some more lights and adjusted the materials and it looked great in the viewport -> then I render and it's bleached orange. After hours of messing with the exposure and gamma and shutter speed and IOS I decided to load up my older file and import the scene again. And it fucked up. After many more hours of importing older / newer versions into older / newer versions I incrementally went through the scene. Turns out the Vraylight set to Dome may look like it works for a given area BUT it's really a global illuminator. Bastards.

I might add some lights for the back arches or I might just leave it. I think it looks alright.

Okay, this IS the final render. I really don't think there's much more I can do (except make a camera).
