Wow! Incredible render!

Also, your older images seem to have hosting issues - any chance you could re-link those? Think I might have missed a few.

In terms of my workflow, this was a personal side project which I generally take my time on. This particular project took approximately 3 weeks of modeling, unwrapping, texturing, and lighting.. Then rendered on VRay with high quality settings at an original resolution of 6000x5800 pixels and took approximately 98 hours to render on my I7 4930k cpu. One of my next personal projects down the pipeline is to finish this, I'll be sure to upload it when I complete it. Anyways, hope this info answers your initial question.

Gotcha.. No, that's what I was looking for. A few folk are hawking dual chip servers on craigslist and one of the thought processes would to be a mini 'render farm'.. I was just getting a baseline of what it took you in the actual modeling vs rendering.

Decide to update these to 4k resolution for some of you guys requesting the high res versions so I maxed out the Vray render settings because I got me a new fucking computer and it doesn't take days anymore to get a finished render and did some extra compositing in Photoshop. Be warned they're at least 30-40 megs each, but you want be hard right!



Gotta be hard to be good right ?
