Hi there, I recently graduated a few weeks ago from the Art Institute of Vancouver in the Visual Effects program specializing in lighting, shading, and texturing.
I used mental ray for maya as my render software.

Check out my reel at:

I'd love to get feedback on my reel and see what everyone thinks :).


More detail into the shading if anyone's curious...
For all the fruit I did not use any texture maps, here are the shader networks I used for them:
