Some of you, should remember the "Amazing LEGO TECHNIC raytraced images" post, almost one year ago.
Today, Nannan from TBB, found at Flickr a forlder from Ernesto Carrillo, with tons of digital renders. Many of them from TECHNIC models or MOCs.
Not yet like this, but a good step towards hyper realistic renders, I would say.
See more, at Ernesto's folder.
Wish, I would know to render like this, or find the time learn...
Meanwhile went to the Dimitri Burakov's folder at BS (also mentioned above), for a better look to this Lithuanian talented renderer work, and found he also has some amazing renders for LEGO TECHNIC models.
See a few examples below.
