A mountain of pancakes by Eli M R.
So after some painfully long render times, I've completed this art work, a piece I'm calling Morning Pancakes.
Lately I've been doing some large scale renders, and I thought I would take an approach for a smaller, more intimate render that focuses on drawing out feeling in the viewer – in this case a thirst for some lovely Canadian tree sap and a hunger for some fluffy slabs of wheat.
I see few food renders out there, and was keen to try my own. So before attempting this render, I made a bagel scene, and some chocolate scenes to prepare my organic modelling, texturing, and lighting skills – I quickly encountered numerous challenges. Recently I have been focusing on individual aspects of the 3D art pipeline, and this time I went for a study of the entire 3D art process to create this final image.
What do you think?
