Wow!! That's amazing :D It doesn't have to look realistic. Reality can sometimes be boring...leave fantasy do the work for you ^^
Thank you! The bump map's doing all the work though :P Aww, I like that! I'll try to keep it in mind, it'll be a big help with this project :D
I agree with Andriana - please don't get hung up on 'reality' - it's over-rated! Your challenge is to create an environment that CONVINCES - and reality isn't always the best frame of reference when it comes to selling a space as real. You should now produce many more texts - push the colour, push the textures - create a 'sampler' of recipes from which you can pick and choose and so refine your aesthetic. Be bold.
*tests* - sorry...
Thanks for the feedback. I'll get on that as soon as I can. I couldn't believe how cool the marble paper looked as a bump map so I can't wait to see what else I can do :)
