Lighting Challenge #12: Halloween

This is an old challenge now, this thread is archived. If you scroll down to the Challenge #12 section of the downloads page, you'll see that the models can still be downloaded for your tests, and also that a gallery has been made of top entries. Feel free to browse this thread to see what others have posted, even though you can no longer post here.

Light the Jack-o-Lantern to capture the spirit of Halloween.

This challenge is based on the holiday of Halloween. For reference pictures, search for Jack-o-lantern or pumpkin.

Files are now available for download:

MIRROR
3DS
C4D
FBX
LWO
MB
OBJ
XSI

Here's a screenshot of the unlit models:

CHALLENGE RULES

Your goal is to capture the feeling of Halloween, including the autumn time of the holiday and the feeling of spookiness, in a rendering of the scene.

Please include the credit "modeling by Jeremy Birn, a 3dRender.com Lighting Challenge" if you put renderings of this scene into your webpage or your portfolio.

Light and render this scene in any 3D software. Use any texturing, shading, lighting, rendering and compositing techniques of your choice. You can change the models as needed, or add any models that fit with the theme of the image. Some polygonal smoothing (additional subdivision) is probably needed in order to render good quality close-ups on these models.

I might be able to get a .3ds file tonight, tonight I go into a school that has Max installed.

For other popular formats (Lightwave, Cinema 4D, etc.), donations are welcomed! Anyone who owns any popular software can import the .obj or .fbx, export something well organized in their own file format, and send me a private message through CGtalk. Either PM me with the URL where I can download the file, or PM me and ask for an e-mail or FTP address to upload it, and I'll host that file format once I get it.

Thanks,

-jeremy

Welcome everyone! I'm looking forwards to seeing entries from everyone who just posted here.

Fex - Good start!

psycosven - Welcome! That's a good start. I wonder if the overhead lights should be unified from the center so there's only one shadow instead of a pair of shadows, and maybe they can be made softer. When the shot is that wide, you'd see it if there were two lamps one on each side of the door or something. It's a little hard to tell what part of the wall texture is supposed to be the texture of the wall, and what part is supposed to be a pattern of shadows.

My first try(real time) at a lighting challenge. I was playing with the light map. It seems it's a lot harder to find a satisfying pattern with bare branches than with leaves. Please everyone, tell me what I can do about it. Thank you Jeremy for the wonderful subject. Halloween is my special day.
