Lighting Challenge #15: Film Noir

IMPORTANT EDIT: THIS IS AN OLD CHALLENGE.
Please enjoy reading through this thread as an archive, but it is closed to new posts. You can still download the old models and also post your entry in order to ask for feedback here


The challenge here is to render this scene in a Film Noir style, making it look like a frame from a film shot around the 1940s or 1950s.


Most Film Noir is black and white, although this is not mandatory. Film Noir is not just about rendering stylish, dark images, but also making images that are evocative of dark moods and dark events.


The gallery of entries is now on-line:

Click here to see the gallery.



This challenge is completed, but you can still download this scene files and try lighting it yourself:


MIRROR
BLENDER
C4D
FBX
LWO
MA
MAX
OBJ
XSI
This scene was modeled by Greg Sandor. Please credit him for his work if you use images of this scene on your webpage or showreel.

A note about file formats: We need more file formats supported.

Giorgio Luciano (jojo1975) has volunteered to make a 3D Studio Max version. We need vokunteers to make versions Softimage XSI, Lightwave, Cinema 4D, Blender, any other programs that are popular. Just PM me if you can do this, and I'll host the version you make.

Even if a program can import some of the file formats that are already available for download, often a native-format version helps draw-in more participants who have that brand of software, and that provides a chance to organize or group the objects better than the way they are imported.

Nice done so far. Maybe a bit to bumpy and a bit to dirty. It looks like its not in 1950, more like a picture photographed from a old gas stadion in the 90's.

@guivAg
Thx again for your comments and ideas.

@weng888
Nice Entry. Good scary mood. The painted character silhouette looks a bit displaced in the pictures. a real character with rimlighting and reflecting shiny knife blade will give the picture a bit more depth and character in my opinion. if u dont want to replace it, take a look at the shoulder and head. looks weird.
