So here is some of my work for you to enjoy, I call it “Nuts n’ bolts galore”, yeah, not very creative but it pretty much sums up the whole rendering. No external renderers were used. It features soft shadows, depth of field, use of hdr maps, normal mapping, bolt factory (an add-on), fog glow, multiply blended textures, well, you get the point 😉 The whole thing took about 5 min. to render. So here it is:
P.S: Makes a great background!
P.S2: you can enable Boltfactory in user preferences –> add-ons
P.S3: I would appreciate any feedback on the rendering!
P.S4: I really gotta stop writing all these postscripts 😛
