I dunno..the coloring is kinda weird.
Were you intentionally going for that sepia look?
I think some adjusting to the textures and maybe a different perspective position would really help out the composition. :)
The modeling looks pretty nice - but quite CG-like with the unchamfered edges and all.
I'd also change your shadow parameters to shadow map with a high sample range to get softer edges.

Looks to easy to me... have you been modeling long (its really good, but its like... TOO easy if you know what i mean)
Its cool though, more futursitc kinda.

thanks for the nice words. :)
i did not want to archieve photorealism... i was just playing around with light an textures. :)

Here's a fun prject for you, you know the cross-hash pattern that alot of flashlights have? Mag-lite for example? Try recreating that on this flashlight. With that and a good rework of the LED this will look great.

thanks alot icognito! :)
I will try to archieve this cross hash pattern, but i dont have any idea how to do the LED becasue i dont know how to do a realistic glass texture. :(
maybe anyone can help me? plz! ;)

Well glass ain't that hard:
An opacity of 95-99%,
Rather high specularity,
And a color which isn't pure white.
I think that will do.
PS: try some raytracing for your glass :)

that would make a transparent material but in no way glass... I'll try to see if I can't put settings with refraction up for you.

Here we go, I just did a printscreen of my glass settings.. not sure the refraction index is good you might wanna do a search for good refraction indexes. Hope this helps :)
