Since I did an outside scene, I'm going to attempt to model a dining room scene. My main goal will be to learn some rendering skills. I'm trying to digest as much Maya rendering info that I can from the help files. Other than this one, most posts will be just wires.
This is just an initial lighting and material test (far from perfect but it will give me an idea how I want to set up the room).
Don't be satisfied with what you can do but rather strive to do the things you can't do!
