Hello and welcome, Albert_fn!

That's a nice scene and you are right that the bullets are too shiny on the first render, but you've nicely fixed this on the second.

The only two crits that I would have:

1. The primer of the bullet is of the different material, mostly nickel-plated.
2. There are visible waves near the edge of the primer. I guess adjusting the crease of the edge loop (part of it marked red) might help here.

Otherwise, that's a very nice render :)

edit: and yeah, there are mostly vendor and caliber stamped around the primer :wink:

Did you use CU.NK for the tip of the material by any chance? I have tried doing this with bullets, and it always results in a metal that is too bright. But the composition is definitely fantastic. Nice work. :)

Hey everybody! thanks for your replies!

I actually used http://www.the3dreality.com/NK_materials.html

Cr3si.nk for the base and a mapped exponent material and for the tip I used Cu.nk and the same.. exponent

I started the bullet just to try some stuff, I even forgot to look for some real scales and messurmens (MY BAD)

I noticed the waves on the primer next day... I just left the computer on rendering for kicks :lol: and actually liked what the result was... Im defenetly gonna take your advice and finish it :)

I recomend you to use a Blended Material so you have more control over refelctions :D

Not quite the same but close enough, you could always adjust it to your liking :)
