This scene is a recreation of Sven Nordqvist's “Pettson and Findus”, also known as “Festus and Mercury”, “Pettersson und Findus” and some other names in different translations.
I made this for the Christmas Competition 2012 at blenderguru.com.
Blender, MyPaint, GIMP
Even though this image is rendered without textures it transports the warm and cozy feel of the complete render. That shows how important a good light setup is and what can be accomplished with good texturing.
A screenshot of Blender that shows two viewports with different settings. One with real time shading and textures enabled and one that shows the wireframe models.
