I’ve tried to make a still life in the style of the old dutch painters. Rendered with my favorite render engine YafaRay (YafaRay 0.1.2 Beta + Blender 2.65). Although Cycles is a decent render enginge too - long live YafaRay! I also tried out LuxRender, but the handling of YafaRay (once you are familiar with the render settings) in combination with fast render times is unbeatable.
All objects are modeled by me. I hope you enjoy the picture.
