A toy I got for Christmas, that I subsequently photographed and then modelled in 3Ds Max. I tried to replicate in detail the photograph that I had taken and I am quite happy with the result. I know I could have made it even more realistic, and with a bit more Photoshop on the final render, no one would have been able to tell which is which. But I set some limits for myself (a time constraint and very little post processing) and this is what I made.
If you haven’t guessed it yet, the first one is the photo, and the second one is the rendering.
