Default rendering tips

hey guys, even tho i have 1 year experience in 3d modelling, rendering/lighting always has been my weak point, so i was wondering if anyone has any tips/ online tutorial that could help me with rendering for example how to achieve something close to this:

i recently started to watch penguins of Madagascar and i really got hooked to it, main reason is the quality of their rendering and lighting is so awesome i wish i could achieve anything close to this, but can't find any good tutorials on the net for lighting/rendering so if anyone could show me some good ones i would be glad, or any professional from simplymaya would be willing to make a tutorial for it i would be even more glad
