Learning to Render

Though the supposedly easy download and install of the rendering plug-in took me days of frustration and hours in their support forum trying to unblock the many, many roadblocks I kept encountering – I did finally get it installed.  And watch out – I’m learning to render.  I’m still far from “photo quality” renderings but I am quite pleased with the rendering-for-dummies results.  Here’s a model before rendering (which I also used to be quite pleased with):

But look how much better it looks rendered:

I still have a lot to learn – there are all sorts of tricks with textures and lighting, and I know I’ve only scratched the surface.  But having started, I couldn’t help but render a few of my other models too:
