well...I was prepared to be harsh but it looks pretty fuckin' good to me. Nice textural work, nice specular sheen to the tile. The only things that bug me are the bases of the columns, they could be a little more substantial, and the candles in the background. They don't really add anything and look like flaws in the image, to me. But that's being ultra nitpicky. Nice job!
Ok, I like it, crit. = sky in window distorted. Candles can go kaef is right. If you enlarge the collum base you'll mess up the texture, if You think they should be changed add another primitive. textures for columes need to be changed per colume, in nature never exactly the same. Add a crack here or there, change the brightness setting, that kind of thing. lastly the lighting could be toned down and increase or add a glo to the cheese. and my final comment is, if I didn't like it I would not have bothered to hopefully help.
Harsh is not what this calls for. It's a fabulous picture, and a really cool concept. If you want some criticism - the sky out of the window, doesn't look that natural, and just a thought, I thought it would be cool if the maze was like a scaled-down city - rat race - but just a thought. Awesome stuff.
PC81- COOL ! Don't change nothin' ! Who says skys have to look like Earth all the time? To me it looks like a place where the gods gather sometimes to look down on "The Ratrace" that they have wrought...like everyone on this planet is being watched...like that movie, "The Truman Show". I have often wondered if that has something to do with evolution, and if the Dinosaurs where killed because the "Gods" (Aliens?, Atlanteans?) got bored of watching them... Peace. Murph~
