In the fall of 2014 I took CS6620 - Ray Tracing for Graphics at the University of Utah. These pages show the results of each homework assignment along with my work for the Utah Teapot Rendering Contest. I have continued to improve my rendering program, and my new images are also shown here. OBJ files of my models can be downloaded at the end of this page.
You can find rendering competition images and descriptions at each entry's individual page. The main website for the contest is found at http://graphics.cs.utah.edu/trc/.
Visit the 2016 page for high-resolution videos and more images.
New and Improved
As I continue to improve my raytracer I will be creating new scenes or re-rendering some old scenes. Any new images I create with my renderer will be posted here.
