Hello Folks! I’ve Just finished this up, and wanted to share. This TARDIS (11th Doctor) was modeled in Blender and rendered using Cycles, 15,000 samples. I used a Backplate and HDRi set from Moofe for the environment. All the wood textures were from CGTextures, and the door decal, phone panel sign, and Police Box Sign were from a wonderful online community called TARDIS Builders. After matching Blender’s camera to the Moofe scene, I output the floor (for shadows) and TARDIS to separate render layers and saved out OpenEXRs from those render layers. Then I pulled the backplate and both render layer OpenEXRs into photoshop for final compositing, and added a small bit of film grain to the entire scene.
Edit: I guess I only thought I was done. Per feedback here and over at Blender Cookie, I’ve changed the lighting a bit. Thanks folks!
One Final Render, this time showing off the lights behind the windows.
