Texture Node Setup
My name is Alexander Kadim. i'm a 3D artist and motion designer from Norway. I've been working with Blender for around 3 years and use it every day for my work in both TV and feature film.
About "Frozen Coke"
For a long time I've wanted to make something using ice. So, what's better then to make a coke bottle frozen in a ice cube? This was rendered in Cycles with 3000 samples and is a full CGI. It took around 2 hours to render on my GTX Titan. (res: 3840*4329) The hardest part was the ice block itself. I started out with a basic cube and displaced it using a cloud and a voronoi texture. Then I used a custom made ice texture for the material bump map. It's not great, but this is what I manage to cook up during my four hours of work, basic compositing done in Photoshop, sharping up the render and color-correcting it.
