>>547851Looks great, I would suggest maybe adding some more abrasions/scratches into either your microsurface or your normals to help give your materials a more realistic look. Looking at "new" metallic materials one of their most defining wear is these little scratches breaking up the specular highlights.
>>547860Thanks, will definitely keep this in mind for my next projects.
>>547851It's good on a technical level, I think the color choices make for a boring composition (grey on grey)Maybe use a nicer HDRI next time, in this case probably something with a lot of blue, to make the metal parts "pop"You should always strive to make a visually interesting image via good composition any time you're showing something to other people. There's no good reason not to have your work be shown in the best possible light (figuratively and literally)Video related is from a faggot but he speaks the truth and you don't need to be a blenderfag to appreciate the truth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8i7OKbWmRM
