A flower for my love.

Posted: February 16, 2011
I'd like to start off by saying "Hi" to everyone here.

I normally hang out at Blenderartists but with it being down I have to find a new place for advice.

I'm still relatively new to the 3d world and have no training besides a few tutorials I've used.

I made this as a gift for my wife for Valentines day.

I tried to go for a more cartoony style flower.

Any advice or critiquing would be much appreciated.

First of all I would make it brighter. Especially grass Smile

To make the flower look more realistic you have to add some variations in its form. You flower now is too symmetric which looks CG.

Also try to learn about sub surface scattering shader and experiment with it to achieve translucency in leaves and petals.

I agree with the brighter. I love the heart cloud though!

The idea is very good!
But you have one more vote for brighter colors Smile Good luck!

Nice image. Good concept. Have you tried Ambient Occlusion? That would likely brighten things up. Anyway we are way past 2/14. Hope it went over well:')
