This is my project for the CGcookie contest: Create a Robot in Blend.
Blendo is a musician, and actually this preview was made during his performance.
I used Blender 2.68, the scene was rendered in Cycles.
As hardware machine, Blendo was created on Toshiba Satelite C655, 2x 2Gb processors for that time. The actual final render:
figure – Full Glob. Illumination.; 60 – samples, 0 – preview
detail – Figure – Full Glob. Illumination.; 150 – samples, 0 – preview
