    Reflection Help

    bathroomcolour2.jpg

    Hey guys,
    I've been having trouble with this piece, I really want to spend some proper time on it rather than just doing quick things like I usually do. I have absolutely no idea how to render what the reflections should look like in the 3 rectangle shaped mirror parts in this, I've tried and tried but can't seem to get the angle right, any help would be amazing!

    Ermm my educated guess loli think its a difficult view point cause youre looking up in the mirrors so any reflection would show the underside of things. Maybe the best way to approach this is get a small mirror and fold a piece of paper in half then quick draw out the dryer and the doorway to give you the right converging angles and then just imagine it as a 3D box.

    Imho that's quite simple, just treat it like the mirror reveals another room which is exactly the same, just - well, mirrored.

    Ahhhh, that makes so much sense. I don't understand how I missed that! Thanks. The only thing I'd add is the need to paint the now-seen sides of the objects in the mirror, once that's done it works! Thanks again.
