Lighting Challenge #3: Hairy Hare

Lighting Challenge #3 is on-line! It consists of a rabbit and a terrain model. Models are available for download in both NURBS and polygonal versions here:

IGES
OBJ

In professional lighting work, a lot of projects involve hair, fur, or vegetation, and the lighting process works somewhat differently than if you only needed to light smooth, bald things. The goal of this challenge is to add hair or fur to cover the rabbit and the ground (for the ground it would be grass and vegetation), and then show how well you can light and render this scene. You can use any software you want. It can be any season, weather, time, or mood.

Edit: This is an old challenge now. This thread is being archived. If you scroll down to the Challenge #3 section of the downloads page, you'll see that the models can still be downloaded for your tests, and also that a gallery has been made of top entries.

Great idea for a challenge, I'm in. I just finished readin Jeremy's book (Which was brilliant) and i'm ready to put some of that theory into practice. Two cyphers on the one challenge, kinda scary.

I will give it a shot. I tried to do FXWARS challenges, and even though I love effects, I just didn't have time. This however, I can do pretty well. Gotta love fur. Now the question remains.... Maya render, or Renderman??? hmm....

OK, half a point for being the first?

If you're moving forwards into developing the look of the fur, a great source for rabbit reference pictures is pbase.com . Search there and you get hundreds of people's pictures of rabbits. If you click on "original" resolution under them, a few people's rabbit galleries are high-megapixel shots that show exactly how rabbit fur looks up-close.
