Van Gogh's Bedroom in 3D

Every semester I teach an Intro to Modeling and Rendering (in Maya) course.  I always give the students an assignment to create a room based upon the style of a traditional or classical artist (sometimes there might be more contemporary ones on the list). To keep it fun, I make the students draw the names out of a bag. I do this because most of them have never heard of the artists, and it forces them into exploring something they didn't know before.

Anyway, I had the idea that I wanted to do a room based on Vincent Van Gogh's piece Bedroom, so I did. It only took me a few hours to model and a few hours to paint it all, but it took me even more hours to get the rendering correct (lighting is the bane of my existence lol).

I think it turned out nicely. All of the textures were done with the 3d Paint Tool and an 'oil' brush, which is really useful. The scene occasionally chugged a bit when I was using it, since my computer is a little older, but not badly. I'd like to do more work with painting directly on the objects. It makes for interesting textures.
