So I've come to the conclusion that blender is greater for pinups and such, but probably not the best for comics. I'll be taking a look at mental ray for Maya sometime in the next couple months. Sorry this one took so long, my display driver kept crashing, and I had to make some last minute rewrites.
So mixed feelings about this one but I think most of the renders came out pretty good. I'll get started on chapter 3 immediately so there shouldn't be a huge wait next time. Feedback is welcome as always.
