After I got a grasp on procedural texturing and lighting with Maya, I wanted to step up the level of quality of my own work. As a result, I created these renders of an Aston Martin One-77. Unfortunately, I did not create the model. I merely wanted to work with lighting and texturing, so I found a free model of the Aston Martin (from tf3dm.com). I hoped to achieve an ambiance in the environment, which is what led to the darker renders.
Modeling Time: 15 hours
