Based on a Figma model called Drossel...I guess from an anime called fireball or something...I found an image while googling something irrelevant and decided to model the thing
The site is all in Japanese and I tried to find mention of a DVD but I'm not sure if it was ever translated...
Anyway, I modeled this in blender 2.5.2a on my laptop when I was home (which was a hellish experience) and I remodeled some of it on my desktop when I got back to school. It stands at a mere 273,000 quads.
I did the materials and rendered it in Maxwell 2. Something like 6 hours and to an SL of 11ish
Then I used photoshop (which was my first time ever) to remove some of the noise from maxwell. I think it worked well.

Anyway, thoughts and comments and so forth :]
