In the 3D view, our treasure chest is looking good, but this is not the final look we want to show off to the world.

We want to showcase our model in its best light, including the right lighting, a pedestal and an attractive depth of field. 

This workflow gives you a lot of artistic freedom to tweak the final look of your model the way that you like best.

Essential Techniques for all your Future Blender Projects

This simple, stylized treasure chest is a lot of fun to create! But understand that it's only a means to an end.

Tip: As you progress through the course. Think about how the methods can be applied to other projects. When you're done with your treasure chest, you will be equipped to tackle any object that's in your head.
