Finals for Material and Lighting

Final for material and lighting!
It sucked because I couldn't render at school since the computers couldn't handle my scene in Mental Ray... Had to render it on my poor macbook! I think it cried a little.

Ask and You will Receive

I've been having a hard time with Material and Lighting class because no matter what I do, I feel like my lighting just lacks. So I did what any struggling artist in need does - get help. I posted my latest project on Facebook asking for critique and tagged nearly everyone I knew. And then the strangest thing happened... people actually responded, with good and useful advice. Honestly, I was surprised with the amount of feedback I got.
I brought the scene back into Maya, re-did it
with the advice I got, added the textures and this is what it turned into.

Amazing what critique can do, isn't it? Thanks everyone who helped
