Jazz by c4d-Jack Jazz by c4d-Jack
I had the idea for this scene last sunday morning, when I had breakfast with toast and coffee. I was listening to Miles Davis' great album "Milestones", so I can say that he somehow inspired me to this image. No idea if Davis smoked cigar (in fact, I think he rather took heroine), but I wanted a cigar on the picture.

Modelling, Shading, Lighting and Rendering were done in Cinema4D R9. Postwork in -what else?- Photoshop.
No HDR image was used, the bright reflections come from simple illuminating planes.
Rendering the whole image took about 13.5 hours on my AMD 2500+ 512MB DDR. I guess, radiosity and diffuse reflections made it render so slowly.

Thank you for looking at this, I appreciate any comments or critics ;-)

I love the way Jazz by ~c4d-Jack makes you feel like you are sitting there, next to a great Jazz musician. The lighting is perfect and the details abundant. It all feels so real to me. ( Suggested by HeatherRivera and Featured by bluespeed9 )

I almost feel like Miles is about to come back and play for us. Great job!
