In this class we were given a quote that we had to use to design a scene. The quote was from To Kill a Mocking Bird:

"The Radley Place jutted into a sharp curve beyond your house.  Walking south, one faced its porch, the sidewalk turned and ran beside the lot. the house was low, was once white with a deep front porch and green shutters, but had long ago darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it.  Rain-rotted shingles dropped over the eaves of the veranda; oak trees kept the sun away.  The remains of a picket drunkenly guarded the front year "Swept" year that was never swept -- where johnson grass and rabbit-tobacco grew in abundance.

... Two live oaks stood at the edge of the Radley lot, their roots reached out into the side-road and make it bumpy.  Something about one of the trees attracted my attention.  Some tinfoil was sticking in a knot-hole just above my eye level, winking at me in the afternoon sun.  I stood on tiptoe, hastily looked around once more, reaching into the hole and withdraw two pieces of chewing gum minus their outer wrappers."

This scene was designed in 3dsMax and rendered using 3Delight.
