Red wine Bottle by OceansCurse Red wine Bottle by OceansCurse
Made this for a school assignment :) Had to make a wine bottle. Complete with all materials and shaders etc.

Used 3Dsm 2010 and Vray 1.5

Also want to make this with mental ray, Tho I still have to figure out how to make such a nice glass material lol xD. Anyone got some good tutorial on that, please do share :)


Edit: Entire different render:D Wallpaper size :D

Very ncie work, it gives off a very warm and inviting feeling; enhanced by the warm colour palette of the flooring and bottle.

Glass texture looks great; very realistic and believable : great specularity and HDR (I think) reflections.

Good points:

+Warm and inviting

+ Believable glass

+ Nicely framed / composed

+ A nicely produced piece of 3D work that is aesthetically pleasing, as well as being technically impressive.

Suggested Changes:

+ Thicken the stems for a more realistic shape

+ Do an ambient occlusion pass to give, the glasses especially, more of a presence in the world.

+ Flooring could be a little higher in resolution
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
2 out of 2 deviants thought this was fair.

Great composition and the label on the wine bottle adds that extra bit of authenticity. But from a more technical point of view, adding a UVW map on the wood table/floor and increase the tiling a bit would greatly enhance the effect of the 4 objects.
Also the stalks of the wine glasses could be made a bit thicker as they tend to be a bit lost, especially the one on the left. The glass on the left also seems to be floating a bit.
Try to experiment with:
-Caustics: More realistic
-More precise shadows
-Added wine to the glass
-Increasing detail in the scene such as drink mats and a bottle cork

Just to recap:
- Great authentic texturing on the bottle
- Realistic glass texture/refractions
- Nice reflections on the wine bottle

requested review from 3dStudioMaxUsers group.

keep up the good work and post it to the group!

This is really cool! Like all good 3D art, it's like a photo, but more pristine. The only thing I'd consider changing is moving the scene to a corner and having some plain wood occupy some space in the image. This would create asymmetry and contrast. I don't know anything about Mental Ray, but I found a wine glass tutorial for Blender, which is an open-source program: [link] I'm just now learning how to use Blender, and it's pretty exciting!

Thanks :) This was actually rendered with Vray, another renderer for still renders. Takes a lot of time to render, but the outcome is much better :). Actually havn't done all that much with 3D lately lol. I've been meaning to look into blender, but havn't really found the time for it. I've seen it's good for uwv unwrapping and such, which is useful for Game Model Design :).

I read that you did it in Vray; I was responding to the part of the description in which you ask for a Mental Ray tutorial. :iconsmile--plz:

Lol I completely forgot that I wrote that in there :D It's been a while since I uploaded that lol.

Very nice work!
I agree with the critiques: those glasses have very thin stems. I would not dare to use them. Few suggestions: a little more clear shadows would be nice, one of the glasses could have been broken and: I never succeed in such a sharp cut of the cover of the cork. Where has the cork gone, by the way?

Now that sounds like I have lots of things to comment. Not true, the majority of this work is great and I think the bottle is very good!

Thanks for the feedback :) I haven't done any 3D work in quite a while. But it's fun to reflect on old work :).

Just checked out your coca-cola bottle and then this...looks like yo've made a big improvement here! (though I do like the coca-cola bottle).

Lighting is very nice, and the reflections look very natural and not overdone :)

I'd suggest maybe thickening the stem of the glasses, as they look extremely fragile and maybe adding some ambient occlusion to give them a little more presence.
