"southwestern mobile attack turtle"
outrageous poly count on this thing (something like 3.6 million quads..).
estimated modeling time is 12 hours, and another 2 hours to create/apply all of the mentalRay shaders.
just over 1 hour to render (1024x768) with mentalRay 3.4.
i think i'm pretty happy with the result, but as always, i'm open to suggestions..
maya --> mentalRay.
