Thanks everyone :)

Nords, I haven't tried any different glasses yet, but I plan on looking for some different shapes/concaves.

Skate, great work, really nice, I love it, try different glasswear, somethign finer perhaps with more curves

I'd try some Wine goblets and glasses

Great work, keep it up

Might try some of my own, your work really inspired me :)

There you go, inspired by your work, I made this one out, only difference, I printed the pattern on a Laser Printer, much easier and more versatile with designs ;)

plan to do a couple of more shots from different angles

Still, I tip my hat to you sir :D
