Home-made rendering

I spent quite a bit of time developing rendering software from February to May of 1995. These images were made with a Phong shading anti-aliasing Zbuffer polygon rasterizer including the Phong lighting model, "screen-door" transparency, shadows, and reflections via environment mapping. This code also Zbuffers vectors and text.
