a cozy little space to read a book...or nap :)

software: max + mental ray

most of the time on this project was spent learning how to properly output the light rays pass and how to properly create the trim work :p

everything built by me in 3ds max including all books

This is beautiful however if I could say one thing, the windows do not look real enough for me, they are not as well textured and just have slightly too much light which over powers the framing. They almost look like they are fuzzy or in a dream like state. It's just that the portion where the windows are does not look real or touchable to me and the framing is too white, whereas the rest of the piece does. All in all a great piece, just a bit of tweaking and more realism and it would be perfect. Keep up the good work.

I like it alot, really makes you want to look everywhere and inspect everthing...but thats also a bad thing in one occasion (at least to me). The floor look wayyy too glossy, almost like it's a laminate flooring. Maybe that is what you were going for but thats how it looks to me.

thanks! I'm still learning to create realistic materials. might try a second run at this render later on with some better shaders

Just use Arch & Design mats with you own diffuse bitmaps and so on. For your floor it looks like you just had it too glossy. If you would have turned down the glossiness you would have gotten a more realistic result. And it also looks like you used bump mapping. Bump mapping is okay, just don't over do it. Just a couple tips from what I've learned so far. Hope it helps ;)
