Some Billiards I made for BlenderGuru’s Photorealism Contest. Created in Blender 2.62, the textures were made in Gimp 2.8. I used HDRI lighting in Cycles to make the overall feel of it more realistic. Some post-processing was done in the compositor.
Update: This picture got used for the BlenderNation header! BlenderNation is like the place to go for Blender news and stuff like that. So, that means a lot of Blender artists go there, which means a lot of Blender artists will see it. It was so crazy when I saw it there!
