I have some new renders i want to share with the world

I have some new renders i want to share with the world. I'm making a trailer for my show called "The Launch Gate". Give my your thoughts. I know I'm not as good as many on this site. But I practice everyday to get better.

I have looked at your stills and the video. Your scenes are too uniformly lit. You need to use light in such a way as to make the foreground character pop out from the background behind it.

Learn about 3 point lighting technique to get better much better shadows, silhouettes and contrast on your virtual actors:


This VIDEO shows nicely how to set up 3 Point lighting on a character:


Literally every one of your scenes would look far better if you had one extra white spot or omni light with strong shadow coming at the character from the left, the right, from above, from below or from somewhere behind (over the shoulder).

You can try placing a light next to a character and orbiting it around the character until you get lighting that is dramatic - the light itself will be invisible in the render, so you can place it pretty much anywhere.

Great looking characters in you scenes - just light more dramatically and cinematically.

Also use some color/contrast correction software.

You may also want to look at some videos or photos of how professional cinematographers position lights on a real film set.

There's a lot of grain in some of these, which makes them look unfinished. I wouldn't share anything like that with potential employers.

Yes some pics are not finished. I just wanted to share some of my work with the community to see what the pros think of it. And Thank you I will keep that in mind about potential employers.

Focus on lighting your charcters with good 3 point lighting. You'll get far better renders that way.

Also use some color-grading software so you get better color & contrast.

Most render engines do not spit out finished images - you want to color grade those images to make them look as good as possible.

Your project seems promising from the images you've posted.

Good luck! =)

Update 5/11/2017

Hey guys got a new update for you. I almost finishing rending my first trailer Can;t wait to show you guys.

Just out of curiosity - did you model all those characters yourself, or buy them from somewhere?

It looks like you are making something rare - an all CG rendered production with realistic human characters...

This board is for GENERAL DISCUSSION topics only, not a WIP place too dump your art. Like Srek said there's other sub-forums on this site that cater specifically for that purpose, please avail yourself of those avenues.
