Model and render a wooden sculpture with Blender and YafaRay
Here is another great tutorial for anyone looking to start using YafaRay with Blender 2.5 for architectural visualization. In this two-part tutorial, an artist called StugysTomas creates a wooden sculpture in Blender and renders the scene with YafaRay. The sculpture is pretty simple, but since the project uses a studio setup for the render, it may be useful for product presentation or furniture visualization. It is a good way to get started with YafaRay.
To download YafaRay with Blender 2.5, the easiest option would be to get a custom build from graphicall.org with the YafaRay exporter already incorporated to Blender.
