Simply beautiful! And very nice materials!
Thank you very much! Can't take all the credit tho, I basically just tried to copy Bertrand's scene! If I can get even 10% of his quality I'd be more than happy!
..I didn't get the floor settings though: they seemed more like photoshop-oriented tips.
Didn't you use a second diffuse material blended via the map you posted?
Yeah this was a quick hack and slash photoshop job... My hope is to develop the material 'properly' as you describe, in Indigo... but for this small scene I found it was easier to do it this way, and I was happy with the result.
