Andreas, these are most excellent tutorials and a lot of work went into this, thank you! Really top grade results.

Maxwell Render needs more content like this and has for a long time since the apparent departure of the undisputed Maxwell guru, Mihai from the forums.

Micah's comment regarding quality textures is very much on point. I spent a long time wondering where that magic render button was, before I realised that the textures I used were rubbish and bringing my renders down.

For any new users out there, especially professional users, investing in a decent texture repository will pay for itself very quickly.
