Blue Sheet Bend

After the superbowl in 2019, I created this sheet bend. I went back to the intent of the sheet bend being used to tie two ropes of different sizes together and made one smaller than the other.  I was using Eevee, and I’m not sure if i didn’t have something set right or what, but instead of refracting the object it was by, it refracted the background. I might not have had something set up right. The original, I experimented with an adjacent color scheme, but it just wasn’t working, so later I tried this more monochromatic one and reworked the texture on the larger piece.  The basic idea for the texture on the larger “rope” came from the Texture Magic book by Richard Egdahl.
