Material Study Metal

Material Study Metal - student project

Tried some material study with bronze and iron like metal.

First I roughly blocked in the highlight and shadow areas.

Then I added a light blueish tint on top for the ambient light from the sky and

a desaturated green bounce light on the bottom.

Afterwards I painted a bright blue backlight.

In the next step I focused on some details. I added scratches and wear and tear to get a more realistic rough look.


I copied the sphere and played a bit with color correction to match a iron like material as well.


I struggled with the ambient occlusion between the bottom of the sphere and the cast shadow.

I think it's quite off and the sphere is too bright on that spot maybe.
