Never used the Maxwell Renderer before but it looks like the render is an 'ambient occlusion' pass, maybe look into that for a start.

maxwell is probably the slowest renderer going... good luck trying to render a frame in less than 4 hours. :p

I agree with bending is cool. You're better off doing an ambient occlusion render.

Stick with Mental Ray to be honest... Although you may need to work a little harder to get your look just right with Mental Ray. Its not worth the time and effort to get Maxwell and Maya to integrate correctly to get a faster fix and less tweaks.

Don't reinvent the wheel, MR does the job better that Maxwell imho and no stupid 3rd party installs
