Fake stones and glowing embers, to be put in a Stone Age encampment.

Very nice!!
I miss some yellowish color in the fire to represent different temperatures.

Nice job. Especially given how hard it generally is to create fire and burning objects in TG.

That's right. And maybe a lightsource (only illuminating the atmosphere) to make the smoke glow a bit directly above the embers.

Otherwise great!!

ditto and as a nit pick that's more of a fire pit than place although it is the place where the fire is heh heh.

Well it's a fine start, knowing that getting a light source to behave correctly to represent glowing coals is none too easy.  I could tell you what needs to be done, but sure as heck couldn't tell you how.

The atmosphere is good and it is a low fire that is usually reddish in color. A few flying sparks would be nice. :)

This could even be done with a population of a few minuscule, free-floating spheres with a strong luminosity value.

Really good start!
I agree with the other to add some (minor) yellow glow and some illumination of the smoke.

Thanks for your comments, guys. I did some more work on it. PT version is a bit dull and not too nice. Sun is too low anyway, and the ambient occlusion makes it very flat. The normal render with sun at maybe 5º (and GI) is better. The 'logs' are just procedural displacements (stretched and rotated, mixed) with glow added. I used a displacement to scalar to restrict bluish ashes a bit to the bottom area, used a color adjust to add some yellow to the centers of the red glow. It struck me that with a line of surface shaders, the second (yellow) glow overrides the first (making the red almost dissappear), so I used a merge shader to add.

Great!! The glow looks a bit greenish on my monitor though.

Dune

That might be the mix of bluish ashes and yellow glow. I may have to separate those. Thanks.

I think it is a great image - only thing to add is it would be nice to see him cooking a rabbit on a spit above the fire ;)
