This started out just as an exercise modeling the spectacles resting on a
rough-hewn wooden desk, but I kept finding things in my office that were
interesting to try and model.  Now it looks like what I wish my home office
really was...

I have my own macros for creating weathered wood, but I wanted to try out the
IsoWood macros.

The bricks are updated a bit from previous images I have posted.

The rightmost book is a model of a leather-bound, boxed version of the "Lord of
the Rings".  The "History of Western Music" binder was hand-created with text
intersecting with the binding object.  The "Choral Arranging" cover is an
image-map.

I found the bourbon decanter online and wish I really had one.  It is created by
taking a hot glass bottle and pressing it inside of a hollowed out log.  My
model is an isosurface using a wood pigment function to add the creases.

The calendar is hand-constructed from text objects, but the musical score is an
image-map.  I created some macros for the wrinkled paper.

If I go away for a long weekend I'll bump the radiosity settings up even higher,
and add in some focal blur.  For now, I've about exhausted the subject matter,
so on to something new.

Very impressive! I like the added touch of the details in the mirror. I think I
recognize the painting of the colored blocks but I can't quite place it.

Thanks for sharing your project!

Kind regards,
Dave Blandston

Sorry, I forgot to comment: very nice scene and lighting. I appreciate 
the attention to details, even the hardly visible, and yet important, ones.

[hope you didn't forget your appointment on the 6th]  ;-)

You are obviously in choral conducting. Ancient? Modern?

The painting is a Mondrian.

Thanks!

The groups I conduct and sing with run the gamut from Baroque to 21st century
composers.  I do some composing and arranging myself, (hence the book on the
shelf).

A-ha, I did not know the artist's name but I definitely recall his work. It's
interesting that something so seemingly simple makes such a lasting visual
impression.

Great story telling composition, I hope it's not too late to suggest some
variations? The thing is that the main lights don't seem to be fading or maybe
are they too strong? or is it that wood's specularity is too drowned with
respect to too strong of a diffuse ? Make sure to use the linear workflow
(assumed gamma 1), before you tune your light's intensity and add 2.2 gamma only
on post processing /rendered window display step, but making sure to still do it
every time you look at your picture. (Add radiosity if there is none) This would
really be worth it !
