Eyes can make the difference between an appealing character and a zombie. The challenge here is to shade, texture, light and render a close-up of an eye. To get started, download the scene here:
This model was built for this challenge by Serguei Kalentchouk. Please credit him as the modeler if you post your renderings on a website or showreel.
All shading and rendering techniques are fine, as long as your model is lit in 3D. Any tweaks or additions you want to make to the scene are OK. We all love seeing great work, but we also appreciate constructive feedback for other people's posts, and break-downs of your scenes and techniques!
This is our first Flashback Challenge. The original Challenge #7 was closed in January of 2007. Now you get another chance to create your best entries yet. Post images in this thread by April 10, 2009, and your work could be added to an updated gallery.
