Six Tuts On Light And Shade
 
  12 December 2007
Floze - Never too late to share a great image! I've fallen behind on making web galleries, but yours will certainly be featured when it goes up.

ElecHeadMatt - Good start on the key light and key light shadows. You might try to make the plant leaves a little translucent where they get back-lit like that. A little bit of colored fill light with occlusion would add to this, and any place you could add a few more glints and highlights from off-screen sources could help bring the scene to life, the specular on the pumpkin is nice for that, but maybe the house and plants and other places could use some?

Chrisdc
- Nice textures, good basic outdoor lighting. I like how the porch casts a solid-looking shadow in the lower left, maybe the railing could cast a shadow like that onto the house? Probably the pumpkin could be made a bit more translucent with some light leaking into the walls and a bit filtering into the interior.

pbalsic - Nice scene! You really get the impression the pumpkin is answering the door, and that something else is watching from the top of the door. Maybe the scene could have a bit more contrast in important areas, with a rim or specular kick on the pumpkin, and maybe the flaoting eyes being bigger or brighter? Something to make these things pop, without losing the dark scary look. Maybe you could have less specular on the mailslot as well, just to maintain focus.

chickenkts - Good start. It would be nice to see darker darks in the scene, more blown-out white inside the pumpkin, and much softer shadows on the light coming out of the pumpkin.

fulg0re - Nice scene. It seems a little lacking in color, maybe if the key and fill on the background were two different colors there'd be more contrast and interest. Maybe more shadows could help break-up the back wall as well?

Congratulations!

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.

Great work everyone!

A gallery from this challenge is on-line:
