Caustics are cool!

For project three, I am spending a lot of time testing different lighting and texture effects. One effect I will definitely be using is underwater caustics, which is demonstrated in the renders below. While I was rendering this scene, some guys from CBS were interviewing/filming our class for a news story, so it is likely that someone from Pixar we see my awesome model on the news and will be calling with a job offer *wink*

Anyway, I am much happier with this re-modeled scene. I plan on lighting up some of the pillar cells (the gigantic blue ones) to indicate that those nerves are firing.
