    Default coffee_set

    A traditional set for coffee (at least here in Italy) : a coffee maker, a cup and a sugar bowl. Comments are welcome. lupen

    Identical coffee makers here in Spain, too. Very nice work on all the pieces here.

    That is awesome, the metal coffee pot is my favourite part of the piece, the metal is beautiful.

    Looks great lupen, the only thing that grabs my attention to comment on is the cast shadows onto the table top.
    Seems to me like the cup is not firmly anchored to the (table top) and almost seems to float. Would it be out of line for me to suggest you treat the cup like you did the coffee pot? By that I mean a dark area directly under the cup. The sugar bowl shadow seems most prominate but shouldn't all three objects share a similar shadow values with the two front being at least as prominate as the sugar bowl?
    All things considered lupen I like it a lot. Great job.

    Great job, I really like the lighting and highlight effects on the ceramic. Very realistic.

    Thanks to all for the positive comments.
    @wizard509: my works are never perfects, so you are probably right. Anyway, I attach the original photo I shot. It seems to me that even in the photo shadows show different densities, that's why I create different types of shadow. Thanks for spending time watching my drawing and giving me interesting hints.
