Hi all! Packt Publishing and I have been very generous lately as to the content we're trying to publish. Recently, we published another article related to the creation of a simple soda can, from modeling phases up to the finishing touches ready for your gallery needs.
So without further ado, here it is: Modeling, Shading, Texturing, Lighting, and Compositing a Soda Can in Blender 2.49
It is divided into two parts (which hopefully wouldn't bore you till death). ^_^
Good luck and have fun!
