New Power Drink

This is for a client who's developed a new power drink, and needed an illustration. The bottle was tricky because TCAD failed to shell one large solid. I had to break the bottle into three sections, shell them, and then rejoin. Worked fine, took a while to figure out. The bottle is a custom material I use as clear plexiglas, which worked well in this application. Also learned a lot about cylindrical wrapping...! This is a screenshot of the rendering, in Lightworks, Softbox, and an accent light.

So did you client intend for the bottle to look like a dumbbell?   ;)

Haha, yeh, high-fiber...I may have gone too far with the drink's texture!

And Jeff, yes, "dumbell" is exactly the concept. I wanted to design something that would differentiate our bottle from the crowd, yet still crate well, and conserve display space. Hey, you know, I just thought - it would be easy to grab one of these bottle off a fully-stocked shelf...!

I think you've succeeded beautifully there, Steve.
