This project was a Christmas present for my dad. He's an avid guitar enthusiast and I wanted to customize a Gibson based on his existing 335 model as a special gift.
So for this project I did all the modeling, shading, lighting, and rendering in Blender and Cycles. Everything was completely built from scratch and it took me about 60 hours from beginning to end to do all of the work. I created a few black and white image maps in Photoshop that I used to drive the procedural shaders, but all the materials were built from the ground up in Blender for Cycles.
For the final gift I got a big movie size poster printed up for my dad and he seemed to really enjoy it. A really fun project to work on overall. Challenging, but fun.
