Really outstanding, ronaldefarmer, love it. I'm going to say looks 'slightly floaty' off the ground, which I'm sure you're already perfectly aware of, and obviously it's an out-of-context (scene) render, but I'm just that sort of ass who has to point it out (sorry!). Really incredible work, love the texturing, the lock in particular and the really bright veneer you've created there. Is it slightly varnished? Is it waxed? There's no need to decide! That razor-sharp shard of light on the mid-section corner is superb. Brilliant level of realism.

Ron: You Might want to look at the Brass Lock , Or lack of one at the moment, adding the lock would establish why there is a lock striker on the lid of the box, Usually the Lock is morticed into the wood, so you would see the brass faceplate of the lock.

As with others Very nice example of texturing. Did you use anim8or`s UVMap tool or  something else ?

Hi Kreator, Thanks for the suggestions. I added the lock; What do you think? To answer your question about texturing, everything was done in Anim8or.



Mills, You are right. It does look slightly floaty. I was thinking that a box like this would probably have those little felt pads on the bottom so that it would appear to sit just above the plane. Maybe that is a little too much. I'm glad you like the picture. Thanks for your comments.

  ronaldefarmer
Today i've noticed something, which might just be the angle of the render.
 Does the lid fit perfectly/evenly when closed?
 Just noticed that it looks like it might be a little wider on the right hand side. (when facing the front of the box).
 I realise that the distances between the edges of the lid and the edges of the hinges might appear slightly different because of the angle its rendered at, but somehow it looks like the right hand side of the lid will overhang on the box more than it will on the left side.
 Can you/(anyone) notice this?, or not?

johnar, I think that may just be the curve of the edge of the box, since the far corner is hidden behind the bottom face of the top of the box

Johnar: I see what you mean. It does look a bit off. The model itself is symmetrical, but I did have a hard time getting the right angle and perspective. Also, maybe the top should fit the top of the box a little better instead of being oversized.

i dunno, i think the larger lid works nicely as a counterbalance to the way the base/feet stick out.  the overall effect with lid closed would be a bit pyramid-ish otherwise, wouldn't it?

I agree the lid should slightly overhang.....Besides the counterbalance aspect, it helps keep the dust out and makes it easier to open.
 (keeping dust out might be stretching the truth a bit)
