This tutorial covers the graininess associated with cycles which can easily be fixed.
This is my first Blender 3D tutorial. I have been teaching workshops to middle school and high school students at Build-It-Yourself and for myself this past year. I have decided to apply for my Blender Training Certification and to start helping others learn Blender via the internet.
