Creating a imaginary Product Advertisement
Product Advertisement - It can be a made-up or real product, but it should look like an ad.
This weekly subject was to create a product advertisement. I wanted to do this project in Eevee because it's a fast render process. And I want to understand Eevee better. To show what the capabilities are when rendering with Eevee.
Product advertising is a paid promotional communication that attempts to induce consumers to purchase a product. Communication channels utilized for product advertising include television, radio …

This clock object is part of an other, bigger project called "Storybook". But I could use it also for the weekly challenge. Because of the chrome-plated metal, I used an HDMI environment image.
I had some details on the back too, in case I wanted to make a 360 animation.
I rendered also a blue version, to be used as materials for the attached card.

But later I found out it was cased by duplication errors.

I spended extra time on the card, making it more reusable for other projects. The angle of the card is an object property (shape keys).
Just playing with some ideas I had. Adding some camera focus blur. Randomized material colors on the linked duplicates.
You can see that the hands are also objects. The casted shadows of the hands are still a Eevee configuration problem. A lot of fiddling with shadow properties.
I looked up some reference material on the web. We are surrounded by it, but what to seek for?
Mostly these examples are product photos with texts. So I added something …
I didn't want to use an external sotware package, I used only Blender for this.
Durability is a keyword nowadays. In every machine there is a battery, or an electric cable is involved. But why? Was the old technology that bad?
