Thanks. =] Not too long for this one. Probably less than a week for the scene design, model & textures; I let it render while I slept, and did the final post-render touch-ups the following day.

scanning a bit at a time...human vs computer detail.  sigh.   The wine bottle did not go down when the glass was filled. there is evidence of local wine storage on the wall but there is no cork although the lead foil seal is broken.  servants would have cleaned the wine spill in the center of the table and polished it long since.  The candles are burning completely clean.  No drops down the side.  from my experience, it would be a bit unusual for furniture and walls to be that well cared for and waxed and a floor roughed that much without some application.  the candle white column shows in the trace on the wine glass but no flame point.  the eye to the right of the rearmost leg is not repeated in the other patterns.  this may be intent.  the wood in the base of the back library shelves is not rendered as well as the table or the shiny column.  normally wood in this type of room is well maintained like the wood under the window and if not shiny is at least matte and porous.  my eyes hurt...more if i can see it

Hence "needs textures & edits" in the description. As for the details of the wine and candles, who's to say the candles aren't new and freshly lit. Or that the wine bottle isn't opened in advance of the mage knowing he'll promptly be refilling his glass. Anyway if you look close you can see there's a small amount missing from the bottle. The wooden crosshatches/rails on the wall next to the window aren't local wine storage, but manuscript holders. If you're talking about the white area at the center, that's not a wine spill (it was a problem w/ the normal map I think). As for the flame point reflecting in the glass or the rendering of the wood, I can't say definitively. Being unbiased the light transport of the renderer is physically accurate; so it's possible that falls onto the material settings.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to comment & go in depth. Some things to regard for sure. =}

Do you plan on doing a breakdown?  I would very much like to see one!

I just compiled a few images for a quick breakdown & put it in the description. Top view port grabs are inside 3ds Max, second two are inside Octane, third ones are the raw render & an oil-paint pass. Last one is the render with some color grading & basic comp. Usually the only pass I work with when it comes to Octane is the beauty/main pass, and sometimes the mat-ID.

This is stunning! Really love it man!

please don't take this the wrong way, but maybe, if you have the chance, do you think adding a bokeh effect via photoshop might work? I think it might add a fantasy lovely feel. It's great at is, but Just suggesting what might or might not work :D

Can't wait to see the next one!

Thanks Francis. =}

I can play around with bokeh for sure; it usually doesn't comes to mind when I work on post-edits, but this might be one case to test with. Either that or I'll incorporate it into a future piece.

I write a daily prompt-writing blog, and I would love to write a short story intro for this room and the missing mage. May I include this image and a credit with a link back to you here?

This is beautiful - dark and calm, thoughtful. I love the effect of the light shining on the table - both from the window and the candles. I thought the shelves were bare, but I think the books/contents are just very dark? I wonder if such a lush room wouldn't have curtains or shutters? Really beautiful! Thanks for sharing! :)

Thank you. =} Some of the shelves are actually bare, and the books still need some additional textures. As for curtains or shutters, I had those in mind while working on the scene... I'll likely add the finishing touches sometime this/next month.

You SERIOUSLY need to submit your shit to some game design company, or production company. Schooling or no, you are FANTASTIC and I think you would be hired on the spot.

Ah, sorry about that. Right after I uploaded I changed my mind and decided to submit both images at the same time (including the other interior render). Anyway, I'm always glad to see a long/detailed comment on one of my artworks. =]
