  1. The screen is way too round, the power button isn't pressed and the led is red... lol, I'm just being obnoxious, great render!

  2. I see what you did. put some text in the bottow right to trick people into thinking you did this in blender..very clever! nice photo, errrr... render :-) As mentioned already, I agree the tv screen looks a bit too round, but I haven't seen every TV that exist so perhaps this is spot on. Really nice work! Makes me want to lift up that lid and pop in a game!

  3. Good render!
    Except maybe for the chromatic aberration.
    You know? Photographers spend hundreds of dollars buying better lenses that dont have CA.
    Yet I know a lot of CG artist that add CA
    WHY PEOPLE? WHY?

  4. Wow, thanks guys, I'm still learning blender and your tips are very welcome. This TV is very similar to what I had with the rounded tube. A friend of mine had a NES, and the light was green (I think). I tried to show my room in the late 80's when I was a video game compatible with NES (Top System, Milmar). My dream was to have an original NES. : D

  5. One thing missing though, you have the video and sound outputs there but no cords attached ;) Other than that it's a great render, like others have said it looks damn near real. Great job!

    • The NES had an RF output on the back, which most people used at the time. It could be daisy-chained with a television antenna to piggyback on top of your standard TV signal. So in a lot of cases, the RCA jacks on the side would go unused.

  6. Awesome models, render, everything.
    I love it. xD
    I love how you got the Duck Hunt/Super Mario Bros. game in there.
    One critique: the cord to the controller is way too short, but I'm sure you didn't want some crazy cord lying all over the floor. :p

    Trigueiro, nice photo! :) Congratulations!
    One thing I've seen that let me thing it's not your real console - no TV pixels! This old TV set must have a grain.
