As today's gone on i've found myself using PNG versions of my files for the fan and guitar strings so as to get the transparency effect. However the texture didn't quite adhere. Part of my geometery appears to go transparent and the texture coats the reverse almost. The central point of the blades appears more of a bowl than a lozenge, fortunately it cannot really be seen at a distance, but its something i would like to correct if i can.
In the meantime I've worked on the rest of the objects, completing the small things such as the train set, jars, books and bottles. There are just a couple of items left and a revisit needed on the woodwork and i would consider this scene complete. Only needing characters and camera's to populate it next.
