    Well this is only like 5-6 objects with relatively simple geometry (unintentional hanzo). Something more serious would have to have like 10+ complex objects, like a render of a messy bedroom or a building with a complex structure.

    Large sample count and the new denoising option in the scene menu.

    Glass doesn't usually give me a lot of trouble if I don't add a lot of refraction.

    I think using HDRI might also help

    Modeling the whole thing took maybe like 6 hours split up over multiple days. So 6 hours and 15 minutes well spent lol

    Glass shader with an emission shader plugged into the volume.

    That pick style had been floating around in my head for years! Glad I finally gained the skills to get it into reality.

    I've been blender-ing for about a year. Obviously people learn at different rates, and my learning has been slowed by school and other things.

    Learn about HDRI's. They make your lighting look instantly better. Get the grass plugin. Make stuff that's interesting you. Don't be lazy, some projects take a long time, don't give up in the middle.

    Also, learn what all the shortcuts and buttons do. I've done so many renders where I learned later that something that took me an hour to do could take like 2 seconds

    I agree. I tried really hard to get a nice diamond-y texture but the fireflies were either too intense or it was too dark. Eventually I just gave up.

    None in particular. Just off the top of the dome

    I took a lot of shortcuts on this that I am very aware of.

    I'll still accept criticism though!
