I have just finished this project. It has been a hell of an ride. It has been an on and off prodject for the last 8 months. I started with 2-3 months of concepting then moved to modeling and textureing for about 3 - 4 months and then finally rendering for 2 months. I have been using blender for about 2.5 years and didn’t have any knowledge of 3D art before that. Had to learn a lot of tricks to be able to render a scene of this size on my computer and i look forward to my next project.
It is not perfect but please share your thoughts and I things i can do better.
