Best wishes to everyone ! Good luck !
First of all - I entered officially this Challenge right now, September 23... so there is not much more time to finish it. But I will end up all my 10 models anyway, I'd like to receive some C&C if possible.
My computer crashed, had to build another, spent 1 week offline, 1 week building the system and the rest of the month rushing to deliver my late work, so even less time to model anything other than my work...
This is my number 1 of 10, a quick render region of some brushes.
XSI, Photoshop CS2 (hand paint textures), rendered with Mental Ray with Final Gather.
Time to complete : 1h 20min including textures.
Textures are not completed, modeling is quite finished for me, light and environment is just a quick test.
