I have been playing around with lighting and rendering today. I obviously do not understand a lot of the terminology presented in the dialog boxes when you pull up materials, and lighting. How in the world do you get a simple sphere, to look like the representation in the materials Pallette? The material in the palette, looks awesome. My sphere? Not so much? kind of cartoony? Attached is the sphere that I am fiddling with. I am trying to learn this, because I am trying to draw a barndominium for me and my wife. We are going to start the build, but not before the design. I want to be able to color and render it to see what it will look like in the real world. I will attach that drawing too. Don't poke fun, I'm not an expert by now means. LOL Oh, and any design ideas on the new house would be appreciated as well!
