View Full Version : Lighting Critique Requested
07-16-2010, 06:10 AM
This is my first true attempt at lighting a scene all by myself. I took a page from kung fu panda and am really using the red/blue contrast quite heavily. This scene is untextured at the moment so I can see each lights contribution more easily. This scene is composed of my key moonline with raytraced shadows with a small radius, a few bounce lights, and an off scene light bulb to provide the red contrast as well as sharper shadows to give the scene more variety. Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm using maya 2010 for this scene, using the MR renderer, this is with no GI/FG, just area/spot lights and one point for the orange light source. It's actually lighting challenge #8 from Jeremy Birn's collection, I'm using some of his pre-built scenes to practice lighting.
