I used an HDR image, which are cool since they can store the light information without limiting it to being between 0 and...

Light pos; x: 0, y: 10000, z: -6250

That felt tip pen scene could do with some work, which should be good for teaching some nice things.

Why is the camera all the way out there?
For me when I open the scene file it's looking at a nice selection.

For what it's worth, it does look like a nice render though.
