I'm thinking you've got this nailed except for perhaps the right side. looks a bit blurred to me and I can see lines instead of a gradual gradiant. makes it sort of look like there are ridges. hope I explained that.

anyways that's what it looks like to me. and I must say it is and exceptional piece.

I know exactly what you mean, but I completely rendered this with Shape 3D, so left the highlights and reflections as they came out.

I think sometimes you can do too much to ';perfect' a piece and end up ruining it. I like the odd imperfection here and there - life is full of imperfections; it's learning to embrace them that counts.

Thanks for the comments.

ahhh I see. I was really hoping that you could tell me the method to get those ridges in 3d shape. agree with you on the imperfections bit, totally, that's what really makes artwork sing and resonate for me.

I love how you complement your art with such a simple background. It's like saying, "This is my art. It needs no help to look good."

But now I'm noticing the background does help with the glass tube by having lines to refract in the tube...

excellent!

I wasn't sure if anyone would notice the refraction of the background. It's the little details that add up.

Thanks, I'm a little more please with this one.
Now, I just have to work on breaking away from basic Shape 3D.
