I have been snooping arounf this site for almost a month but this is my 1st post ever... it's intimidating to post in forums where there are so many great artists when you are fairly young.... C&C is always welcome and wanted

modeled in max rendered with the lightracer plugin and skylight

I am a terrible renderer so any advice would be welcome.. any programs you would suggest any combanations that come out well etc....

p.s. I just started high poly modeling about a mont h ago but was involved in game art for about 8 months before that but the seem to me to be totally different

Let me give you an idea of the scene im going for... a young boys father died in battle and he is kneeling before his armour clutching the sword.... i hope to incoperate some awesome shadows and set the mood with a low sun coming in through the window behine the boy to cast a shadow.. it will give it a sad feel and i think an orangish type lite would really look cool.. any other ideas?

and with out further adooo some more stuff (please give me some crits)
