My first 3D image: Coffee Cups

posted on 16th of october, 2014

For some time I have been aspiring to learn to make images and animations in 3D program Blender, but ventured only in basic shapes and understandig the very basics of the vary basic. I even made short animations, but my PC is too slow to render it at a reasonable quality.

This week I persisted, and created my first (and from my point of view, successfull) image. It is a couple of two simple antique yellow cups with a deep blue background and only a bit of light casting over them. I wanted to create an images that is an invitation to a cup of tea or coffee, in a serene, peaceful, quiet place. This is what I came up with:

Great @Eranicle, I'm always afraid to add subdivisions, it limits a bit modeling. I'm meshing up from now on!
I guess I'll have to sell some renders to buy a new decent PC. lol

You are welcome.
Ussually, increasing a mesh subdivisions a little will not increase your render time (maybe a little) but, it will require more RAM. The more poly count, the more RAM will be used. And time of render depends on your CPU, not on amount of RAM, graphic card or hard disk.
