Modeling Tutorials and borrowed models

Okay, I kn ow this was all done with Blender tutorials for the shield and hammer and downloading the Iron Man models (because there were no well-made tutorials out there that I could understand or follow) and has absolutely nothing to do with Hitfilm but I wanted to show off my results and this was the only place I knew about to do that:

The Helmet model was by  3dinator at Free3d.com

The Arc Reactor was by Jamezzz92 also at Free3d.com

I did the Shield from a Youtube tutorial by a yong fellow  named Scotland Dobson and Thor's Hammer Part 1 was by CGMasters (I purchased the 2nd part which covered all the nice texturing and such.)

Anyway, I hope I'm not violating any rules and you like it.

Edit: I forgot the background is free HDRI lighting the scene from HDRIHaven.

    @tddavis Looks great!  Bet you learned a ton.

    All looks good but you have some render bugs on the Iron Man helmet.  Sure you don’t have some co-planar polys on there?  Changing the smoothing angle may help a bit. 

    Otherwise, very nice comp!

    @Stargazer54 Thanks.  I was pretty pleased that it turned out so photoreal.  With the exception of medieval house from a class I am taking, it's my first and really that is mostly the teachers "paint by numbers" instructions.  It is possible the model has an issue but I'll bet it was all me.  All I did was create the texture for that and the ARC reactor and I thought it might be the radial distortion from the Shield tutorial material that I repurposed for it.  I will look into it to see if it's my material or the borrowed model.

    Looks good, Terry. You're making real Blender progress!

    To nitpick, the CG elements are a bit saturated compared to the background, but this is a test render, so take that as a note for the next project. For a still like this consider using the bg for HDRI but render on a transparent background. Then you can come into Hitfilm with the render and comp into the background with the fg/bg elements on separate layers for color correction.

    @spydurhank Thanks muchly.

    @Triem23 Funny you should mention that. :) Actually, that's the way I always comp my stuff together, but this time the Shield tutorial turned me on to using the HDRI to light the scene and reflections all in Blender so I thought what the heck...  I agree that using Hitfilm for the comp gives me much more, or, at least, far easier, control of the layers.  I'll probably go back to that method going forward.

    Yes. Very nice render sir. I do see a bit of firefly on the shield but not bad. What are your samples and do you use denoise?

    Heh...when you get to rendering for Hitfilm this is the node setup I use for creating the individual passes in case you be interested. ( I bet someone here will correct my way though? )

    • @GrayMotion Thank you for the looksee and especially for the node setup.  It quickly gets into nodes I haven't been exposed to yet, but will no doubt be quite handy indeed.  I thought I noticed them on the shield too, but I believe I was at 256 samples and denoising so I thought maybe it was my imagination.
