    Icon Teahouse



    You're welcome to have a cup of tea in my teahouse, if you're small enough that is.

    Hope you like it.

    All the best,

    Metin

    I love it, but I'm wondering too much about who lives in it, perhaps you could place some small items to 'hint' at it's inhabitant

    Thanks!

    I deliberately chose to leave it up to the viewer who or what lives here. Personally I had a mouse in the back of my head while creating the image.

    Cheerio,

    I really like this. It's well-done, clever, and kind of cute. The thought of a mouse-home fills me with warmth...

    it would be great to add some more little touches to give it a homy feeling. like flower boxes in the window, curtains, a throw rug, or some thing to identify the front door, like a welcome mat. its the little details that would sell it.

    oh, and great job with the lighting and textures, nice and fithy!

    Thanks for your comments! Good suggestions, although I've got 2 reasons to keep it like it is:

    1: I wanted the scene to reflect poverty and solitude. Elements such as flowers and a doormat would quickly make it too nice and cosy for a rusted teapot in a deserted alley.

    2: Elements should correctly reflect the scale of the scene. For example flowers would be bigger than the whole teapot.

    Cheers,

    Metin

    Is that a photo or a painting? At first glance I thought it was real, but now I'm not so sure.

    Brilliant render. What did you do it in?

    I must say, i think it'd be cool if the windows were made from some other material/object, like coke bottle bases or something. The glass on the windows looks a bit unnaturally thin to be existing in that scale world (i assume there is glass going by the faint reflection on the left window.)

    Number 6, you just gave me the best compliment for a realistic 3D image! Thnaks very much!

    Vigostar and Fandangle, thank you very much as well.

    Fandangle, I think you're right, but the reason I didn't make the glass too thick is that it would cause less outside light to enter the inside, making the room too dark.

    Cheers to you guys!

    Very interesting. As a tea-drinker with a paranoid brain, you've planted some peculiar seeds of suspicion. Oh great! Now, I have to throrughly examine the tea pot before I boil the water!

    I don't even want to think about it.

    This may sound strange, but I don't think the coke cans look convinicing enough.. THey seem more plastic than metal... The Teapot house is FANTATSTIC though.

    this is really cool! nice textures, and and lighting,
    I do agree with igotglasses though about putting little details here and there to make it more homey, because it is such a cute idea.
    I do also think you can do something with the window, like give little scratches on it, and make it a tad bit more opaque to show that there is actually glass in the window.
    I would say add a little more color. Maybe Gum Wrappers as curtains, or some small material that you might find on the street or something. This will lead your eye to the room and keep the interest.
    I think adding little details that even shows this character is poor will add more to the personality and story. You will impress people initially with the rendering, then people will get immersed in it and look at all the little things, and start thinking about the character who lives there and what their story is.

    Really good job, I think this is such a cute idea,

    Metin, this is an absolute delight! What you have now is great...don't tweak anything. As for the suggestions to add some "knicknacks..." one or two appropriate wouldn't hurt and might ad a wee bit of color for the poor homeowner. I've lived in worse, and remember waking up to see a pretty matchbook laying on my floor every morning...kinda made my day...

    Wow guys, you really make me !

    Bigdaddy_GFS, I had an ordinary mouse in mind while creating the scene, but please feel free to let your imagination run wild and develop the world's first teaphobia.

    Poise, great suggestions, thanks! I have to say though that I have become tired of rerendering this image and I've post-processed the image in Photoshop, so after rerendering I would have to do that again as well.

    Inque, thank you too. The complete scene is 3D, although the blurry background is photographic.

    Ilaekae, thank you too! I hope your current residence is better than a rusty teahouse.

    All the best!

    Metin
