Goban 2

Here is what I consider to be an (almost) final render for this scene. The white stones in the bowl were created using an in-development, beta version of Cheetah3D's bullet physics plugin, by Hiroto Tsubaki. I was forced to reduce both polygon count and output size, because I was getting a very low sample-per-pixel rate (something like 15 per hour!). I think I should call this piece "Goban by the window." If I do anything else to it, it would be working on the textures a bit (they need a bit of bumpmap,) the rice paper volume material, and modify the model of the fan a bit. I hope you like it.
