Looks pretty darn good.. although int he overhead shot the textur eont he wall falls apart.. offhand do you know what that cactus is called? I have a cactus collection... that's why I ask or is it imaginary ;-)

Thanks gmask,
I didn't understand this sentence: "although int he overhead shot the textur eont he wall falls apart"

It's not taken from my imagination, tough lots of people think
it is because of it's shape and leaves :)
i searched a bit in google and i think it's called Madagascar Palm.
you can see it here (http://www.southerntropicals.com/galleries/Cactus%20&%20Succulants/pages/Pachypodium%20lamierei%20Madagascar%20Palm_jpg.htm) .

Let me translate..

in the overhead shot the texture on the wall falls apart.

The camera gets close to the wall in the second render and the resolution of the texture on the wall becomes low res looking..

I'll keep an eye out for the Madagascar Palm.. it have some tall spiky cactuses but I like the leaves growing out of the top.

Thanks alot Ac0rN!
Actually i'm not on the job hunting at the moment
but i'm always open for new opportunities.

gmask, you're right about the low res of the texture.
this camera angle doesn't do any good with it.
