well, the title is very self-explanatory, this is a very old drill press, unbelievable still working in a little workshop near to my house, the brand is “Sanchez Blanes S.A.” the original tool has been replaced with an end mill.Is used for wood work.
OK enough information now talking about the render…
first of all, i have to say i love b-mesh it really save lot of time, the render is done in yafaray 0.1.2
Guess is not too bad for my first yafaray render, the lighting rig is very VERY simple.
i used a very dark reddish color for the AO in the direct lighting to avoid a complete darkness, 3 area lights with a very desaturated yellow color and a bright spot light used more or less like a rim light to give contrast in the top of the drill.
the post-production i used inkscape for the word and give it a little contour because the red color was too bright, so i decided to put a dark red to make a less strong transition between the word and the image, the dark contour of the picture is made in GIMP using a circular selection in a new layer and then a very strong blur, another layer was used to put more dark yellow to the image so it looks older.
the scratches and the blur were painted in “MY PAINT”
