Journeyman Key: V1


Here's a render of the Journeyman Key model.  Rendered this out without antialiasing to keep the render time down to a friendly level.  All feedback is welcome; I've got an idea or two to modify the handle design to be more practical and stowable.



  1. The inside part of the key looks great. A nice mechanical touch. Something about the reflection on the top part doesn't sit well with me. It seems to behave like a mirror with the lights, kinda gives the illusion they are turning. Could be just the angle the key is sitting at that is causing that. Otherwise, looks good.

  2. Hey Bryan,

    Thanks - I wanted it to look more mechanical and actually key-like than the reference. I see what you mean about the handle though - I'll have a play around with the lighting and try to get a better result.


  3. I just wanted to say that this project is looking great, and is bringing back all sorts of nostalgia for me.

    Great stuff.

  4. Hey Tim,

    Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you like the work that's been done so far! It's always both gratifying and humbling when the project gets such praise!

    I hope I can keep the nostalgia coming for you :)
