Default Noob First Render

Hi, lol...

This is my first render, I used a tutorial I found from another site, I'm sure some people have seen the tutorial with the screwdriver. Anyway, it's my first time every trying Maya and I'm happy with the results.

I just got done looking at that tutorial. For your first render it looks pretty good. You didn't happen to use the mental ray render that was also in the tutorial did you?

No I didn't, I used another one.

Look, I added some more screwdrivers in this one.

Not bad for a first render.
I'm not a render-expert but you should make more shadows.
The reflections are good but I miss the shadows.

Looks good, I remember that was my first tutorial at creating realistic lighting etc.

What rendering engine did you use for it?

hmmm .... how did yours end up looking soo good? i did that couple weeks back and coudnt the get lighting right, mine looks like hell to be honest,

what settings you used for rendering? and did you change any materials for the screwdriver because your handle part looks soo clean and coloured while mine is .... ugly!

GREAT JOB by the way, yours looks stunning!
