Winner Image of the CGSociety Hardcore Modelling Challenge (Best Model, Best Render & Best W.I.P), took me around 10 days to get this done on spare time, you can take a look at the Work in progress on my W.I.P Thread: http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=1245126
Adding some backstory to this somewhat "old" piece:
This scene used less than 1.5gb of memory, by that time I only had a ancient dual core with 3gb of ram.
It's very cool to see how things progressed since, Just to think nowadays my newest scenes sometimes just a small asset alone uses more than that. :) Life is awesome.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
