But seriously, it's not a bad piece. I'm still a beginner in modelling, lighting and texturing, so I can't offer many valid crits there (although, to my untrained eye, all those look really good, especially the chess piece), but I do have a problem with the cutout in the Bible. I feel it's too clean. The edges are just way too perfect for something most likely cut out with the crudest or dullest of blades. I don't think a prison would allow an inmate to possess an X-Acto knife. The Rita Hayworth pic looks a little too rough, like it's painted on lightly-gessoed canvas, and while I like the texture on the chess piece, I think the edges of it could be a bit more crudely worked - right now, it looks as though it was turned on an actual lathe. It should look less cylindrical, since he didn't have the best tools to work with. The same with the cross.

I DO like how you tied several major elements together into a single image, as well as the bar shadows giving a subtle hint that this is in a prison cell.

Overall, though, a very nice piece.

Looks great, nice lighting. Are you going for photorealism?

Sorry for lack of critique...

the poster material, the floor material, and the chess piece material are all pretty lackluster. the book doesn't cast a multiply shadow on the floor, so it looks like its floating. see how the hammer casts a shadow in areas that are already shaded? the spider element is fairly weak as well. the poster, as i was saying, was glossy, not canvas, if i remember correctly. glossy posters don't have that kind of bump. if they've got any bump its due to folding or creasing.
