Stumbled across these renders a few minutes ago and figured I would post them somewhere before deleting them forever.
I made this stuff a while back for a 3D Art project in school. I took the class hoping they'd be using 3ds Max or Maya or something (which I was already pretty familiar with) but of course it turned out to be a Blender indoctrination course that was a little too heavy on the monkey heads and UI frustration for my taste, so I decided to just grind through it for the credits using 3ds Max for all the assignments and turned in shaded viewport shots to be graded.
Anyway, mentalray renders I saved:
Since then my skills have improved quite a bit and I'm doing it freelance for a living, I may post some recent stuff later.
