In order to illustrate to prospective clients some of my 'skillz' I decided to go back to my product design roots and design a kettle. Not very glam I know, but it shows that I can do high res meshes as well as decent rendering, so here we have it.
I'll be getting down and dirty with mental ray in the forthcoming weeks so the renders should get better, plus this was done in 'Max' which I have limited knowledge of the renderer, lights and materials etc...thats my excuse and Im sticking to it.
By the way I feel I should tell you that im doing this as an agent told me my concept stuff was strong enough but my 3d needed different types of stuff to make me more 'marketable' to an array of industries.
Expect some loose pretty painting as a direct back lash to this :)
