We're back with another entry in our weekly community project, where we post a render or animation created by a member of the Cgtuts+ community, and ask you to provide feedback and constructive criticism on their work. It’s a great way to learn more about the intricacies of computer graphics, express your viewpoint, and have your own content critiqued by your fellow artists!

Quick Ground Rules

  • Be nice! We’ve deliberately chosen work that isn’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
  • Feel free to offer any type of advice on – Modeling, Texturing, Materials, Lighting, Rendering, Composition, etc.
  • You can also link to another render that you feel offers a great example of this type of content done exceptionally well.

So let's get to it, here's this week's entry created by Tom White!

A Little Background

After starting to watch the AMC series 'Madmen', I went about creating a scene reminiscent of the desk of lead character Donald Draper. Complete with whiskey, cigarettes, ashtray, lamp and 'Sterling Cooper' notepaper. I feel it captured the look of a typical 1960's office. In the background is my take on the leather chairs and table, featured in a tutorial on CGtuts.
