I follow the subreddit /r/Daily3D for some of my daily challenges I will be giving myself (if I can’t come up with something to do, myself). I suggested the topic “Candy”, in hopes it would give me the kick in the butt I want/need to start this series. Unfortunately, I tried to record it and nearly lost my project file in the crash. Note to self: Don’t try to record the Node Editor while recording with only 4 gigs of RAM.
Anyway, I started this part with a chocolate in a foil wrapper. but I felt something was kind of missing.
So after starting with the chocolate material and crashing my recording, I added another piece of candy to the scene…
The final result definitely has plenty of room for improvement, which will be a norm for my projects for quite a while. But, I am certainly chuffed with the glossy ‘candy’ look of the lollipop.
Got any tips or improvements? Have you made something similar? Share it with me in the comments.
