Another test-run image for PovRay from early July 2005. Once again, I was playing around with features to get a feel for them... here, it was extruded text, bump maps, glass, and reflective stuff. Lacking anything more imaginative to write in the text without making the image look like a joke, I used the name of the rendered and the modeler.
I just use it as a quick way to show off what a raytracer allows while I hide the fact that my dumpster-grade PC took at least 30 hours to render a good copy of this. But... some people find it really cool... even if to me it's just a demo.
