1. This is a tutorial I made for my classmates in class 1 of Animation Mentor. I wanted to show some quick rendering and lighting techniques I use in Maya when making character pose renders, specifically in how to get a solid color background with a shadow to ground the character. This is made with the beginner to lighting/rendering in mind, so I try to explain all the settings I tweak. Got a little carried away at points, so I apologize for some rambling.
