3D Candy Challenge
As a practice for 3D textures, I'm working on a project to make photorealistic candy.
The first renders are from a specific kind of Dutch licorice called "Engelse Drop".
The challenge lies in the choice of color and texture, to make the candy look so real, your mouth starts to water. Before a render looks realistic it takes a lot of testing and tweaking. In addition to this I’m trying out some other candy to look realistic, like sugarcoated gums and jelly beans. Just give it a color and make the materials reflective is not enough to prevent the candy from looking like plastic.
