Here it is, my medical fear / loathe scene. Total it is 3574 polygons. It's all mapped out and textured. Lighting consists of a point light above the bed with a soft cone and a spot light behind the door. I also experimented with just a tad of depth of field, this was my first time truley lighting a scene up and enjoyed every minute of it.

Heres what my scene turned out as.
The pilot of a ship looking for a fallen comrade, afraid that his friend may have already died.

I had fun and learnt alot as this was my first competition entry.

(When the guidlines said; 'lighting and atmosphere' i thought it meant as in, lights and sky and stuff.)

Well heres mine, about 25,000 polygons, guy, fully rigged and stuff. The story is that the guy had a party before the third shift when he works. So he has a bunch of beers with some friends. He manages to gulpdown 9 bottles, and now he is a bit tipsy. So he starts working and then he cuts his hand off and fainghts from the pain. So that is where you see the scene from.

EDIT: I just learned how to count this afternoon. He had 8 bottles, not 9.

Mr. Peepers gets some bad news!

This poor monkey is being transfered from the Zoo to an animal testing lab. My goal was to create an outdoor, daytime, jungle-like atmosphere. I used a little light fog and yellowish lights to make it seem hot and humid. I only used photoshop to create the textures but didn't touch up the render because, hey, this is Maya! Thanks for checking it out!
