...Some diamonds that I'm pretty happy about.. I've redone this diamond model a few times and I finally got something that I think is acceptable (maybe..?) Any tips/critiques/suggestions would be appreciated...especially concerning caustics...

Cinema 4D

Update: 09.19.08

After not touching this piece for three years, I finally dug it up and tried to make some changes that some of you suggested. Mostly, I reduced the reflection somewhat on the marble floor. Still didn't get much with the caustics; it seems that the default renderer for C4D just isn't powerful enough to get the realistic type of look I was looking for. Oh well, what's done is done. I'll keep this one this way as a learning experience and try to make an entirely new one in the future.... =)

gorgeous stones! The only thing is, I think diamonds refract light more vibrantly. Maybe these are crystals? I love them none the less

Yep, you are correct. A lot of people have been telling me that..I just haven't figured out how to fix it yet :lol:

I haven't done 3D in a while, but could you maybe texture the light source with the rainbow light spectrum? It just lacks that intense, almost white, sparkle. I don't know. Well done anyway

Huh...I never knew you could put a texture on a light source...I'll have to give that a try

INcredibly beautiful!!!

p.s.
if not a secret, how did you draw the diamonds??? From zero, or is there a pre-set model anywhere?

Finding images with measurements of a brilliant cut diamond helped a lot =)
