read: what I do when I'm sugar-high at somewhere between midnight and one in the morning. Oh well.
I haven't been at CG long yet, this was more or less a kind of practice to see if I could make anything reasonable in Blender.
Results: a picture frame on a white background. Doesn't have a photo to go inside yet.
Any criticism or tips to how I might be able to make it better (besides adding a better background and a painting/foto/whatever for the frame to hold) are very welcome.

If you're going for realism, the yellow parts on the frame don't look very realistic. Try to make the look metallic and/or darker.

^ yeah more realistic textures would be really great.

If you can't make them, there are a lot of sites that have downloads and stuff. I don't know much about rendering, but adding a shadow would be good too.

well, yes, the shadows, I guess I added a bit too much light, and from the wrong angle.
As for the texturing/material, thanks, I'll look into it.

edit: the material is a bit difficult, as gold (what it's supposed to be) is reflective, but I don't have any other objects other that the frame and the wall for it to reflect, so it would look wierd. Time to add a background (behind the camera)

Well I think it's too bright/yellow for gold, and it should probably be embossed. It could also be a dull metal and not reflect anything but still look metallic.

It looks alright but it definitely could use some sharper edges. It's a little out of focus and blurry to be really realistic.

Man, I hate when I log in to see new posts only to find out that all of them are some fucking spambot.

May be adverts in his signature but he seems human enough, though maybe an idiot.

No, I'm p. sure it was a bot. I seem to recall multiple bots having replied in one of the thrads he necro'd, which is generally a giveaway.

That's a creepy bot if it replies intelligently to a thread. Even though its retarded comments.
