I didn't really feel this would have been appropriate in the art thread, since I threw these together in all of five minutes, and spent another 10 or so tweaking them. They mainly stemmed from <STRIKE>me being bored while I was supposed to be teaching the eager young minds of tomorrow</STRIKE> a couple projects I had my different classes working on. Basically I started these as examples, and since the people in my classes this quarter are all fairly independent, they ended up not needing examples. So I just stopped here.
Edit: Hopefully removed Photobucket's ******ed "RESIZE IMAGE, LOL?" crap.
Edit^2: I know there are issues with both renders, and I'm okay with that. What I'm not okay with is the gamma and brightness. I have never truly calibrated my monitors, and it always seems like **** comes out overly dark. Let me know if that's the case, please. I used Gamma correction in 3ds Max, but that can only go so far if my monitors are too far out of whack.
