Wow, that is absolutely awesome! I didn't realize until I looked at your Zazzle store that I'd been looking at your tutorial on the warlord. I'm just now trying to figure out the whole rendering thing. I'm having a pretty tough time of it, no matter what, my stuff doesn't get a very realistic feel to it. Your stuff just blows me away.
heya thanks acornboy and yarin_t!
@acornboy: thanks checking my work including tutorial/Zazzle, I appreciate it. I suggest you watch video tutorials of professionals at work explaining each step of process through video/audio, creating projects from scratch - e.g. Gnomon video tutorials. This is best way to learn methinks. I prefer professional projects such as those at Gnomon rather than generic tutorial such as Digital Tutors since in Gnomon you watch a professional result being made with artistic element in education.
I love busy interesting designs and little details like this. I'm also a fan of Ancient Aliens show and all that kind of spiritual artwork and stuff, especially pyramids. This is awesome!
