By Ernesto Torres Klaindorf.

Hi BLENDERNATION!!!, I'm Cuban and I started using Blender 2 months ago. I just love it.
I made this picture using the "Random" connector of the "Object Info" node to achieve color variations and bump in the marbles. I also used the "Glossy" nodes, "Glass", and "Fresnel" to get the effect I wanted on the surface of the marbles. Then in composition I added a vignette and "Defocus". It goes without saying that I render in Cycles.
Thanks a lot.

    I love the effect you applied to the surface of the marbles, they look as old marbles, I mean , like marbles that have been used many times! great!

    I also like the sense of depth, the way you spread the marbles and the shadows near each of them! I really like your work and the potential of this software! thanks Ernesto and thanks Blendernation!
