Jugs (Modeling with Curves) from “Ultimate Blender Course 2024”

Render of the jugs with 'sun texture":

I have doubts that the shadow rendering is accurate like in real life.

So, I rendered the ‘sun light’ with approximately the same angles as ‘sun texture’ and the shadow actually looks identical:

The shadows are probably correct with the sun at a low angle of 15 degrees, as the shadows are very long. However, subjectively, the image with ‘sun texture’ looks better to me than with ‘sun light’


Very nice Uwe. Yeah both look slightly different. I like the second one better
