    jlampel Thank you for your feedback, Jonathan. You're absolutely right. I wish I had spent more time tweaking those details, but I might revisit this scene in the near future. I'm currently watching your texturing course. On a side note, I cannot thank you enough for the available classes here at cgcookie. I've been learning so much and I'm very grateful to you. Keep up with the GREAT work.

    This is top notch work! From the smudges on the glass to the bump on the chair, there's not a ton to critique here. My minor nitpicks would be that the texture for the pencil wood is probably a touch too strong (unless there's a certain kind that has that bold zebra pattern), and the seat cushion could use some subtle SSS so that the terminator line (where light transitions to shadow) isn't quite so strong. The wood for the desk also reads just a little too large for the scene. Overall, I think you knocked this one out of the park. Keep up the good work!
