Break-Time! Cycles

I started this with the intention of just modelling a Mug for a quick bit of fun, but got carried away. I have a dislike for badly modelled pottery, especially where the handles join the base, i.e. usually just stuck on with no bridging geometry - I know, I'm fussy ;)

Note: This scene is set up for Cycles (blender 2.61+)

Contained in this blend is:

Standard Mug plus Coffee top texture Medium Tea/Coffee cup with Saucer Milk Jug plus Milk top Sugar Bowl plus Sugar top texture Teapot with lid Cafetiere (No spring or gauss, but isn't obvious) 2x Spoons (Just duplicates) 2x Blender Tea packet (Earl Grey) plus textures and string with tag (duplicates again)

The usual Studio L-shape plane with an extra plane for the worktop surface � plus 3 emitter lights both for light and reflection.

Note: All textures are in a separate folder titled �Textures� for ease of use.

More detail can be found in the Break-Time.txt in the archive.

You're welcome to use and abuse them as you like, just give me credit :)

I hope you enjoy the models, and can make use of them in your projects, as always feedback is always welcome!

Jay ;)

P.S. Sorry the file is 12MB, the textures are quite high quality.

    Very nice - I'm new to Blender so blends like this are very useful to me as they allow me to see the capababilities and how others create their effects. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice to see the good comments, I'm surprised the downloads are so big for something so ordinary, glad it's of use to you guys ;)

    If any noobs want any extra info, don't be afraid to ask - i'll try to answer the best I can, not that I'm any guru or anything ;)

    I registered at Blenderswap, than downloaded new blender, and woke up for your models :D *by woke up I mean, I haven't used blender for 1 month 'cos I'm busy with school, since I will have exams in two months :)

    It doesn't surprise me at all, having well modeled assets like these everyday objects is a great way to build up a reference library, HUGE TIMESAVER!! thank you so much for your attention to detail and hard work, it is greatly appreciated!

    Nice models! Yes, seemingly small everyday things like these seem unimportant but they're the opposite. The only minor critique I have is that the origins of the cafetiere interiors are messed up. But all the others are nice :) Thanks for sharing!
