What would your reaction be?
This is the same temple I used in "The Prayer" so please view
that image for my comments about the temple, lighting, and reflections.
The Goddess figure is facing towards the priest. (i.e. Her back is facing
you.) She was rendered using a glowing water texture and is illuminated by eight low
intensity light sources. The end result far exceeded my expectations.
This is the image that finally caused me to build myself a new computer.
My old 200MHz Pentium MMX kept crashing. On a Pentium II Celeron the render times where
18+ hours at 300 MHz and 11+ hours at 450 MHz.
