This is a progress thread for my project for this week’s Blender Collab Challenge.
My progress so far
I’m trying to recreate this picture:
I was able to get the basic modeling done surprisingly fast. Pianos are complicated, but by limiting my scope to just the keys, I was able to simplify it a lot.
Here you can see how simple, especially considering I only had to make one octave of keys and use an array mod.
I think the key to making this one look good is going to be the textures and lighting. Hopefully I can find an HDRI to fit the scene.
If you’re interested, come check out the Collab and even join in! Anyone can take part, and we have people of all different skill levels. Cheers!
