As part of my brief i said i would compare a still render against other photographs of real dragonflies to see how it compare and measures up.

Well as far as i can tell, it doesnt stick out like a sore thumb, but you can tell which is CG. I think its because of the positioning of the shot, it seems to central, to planned. Also the angle of the wings lets it down slightly and the eyes could do with being a little more glassy. It might be because I know it has no fur, but I think that also takes away from it also. If you havent seen the rest of my blog you might not guess at a glance. Maybe i could have your comments? I still have a lot to learn.
