Someday I want to visit India. I was just looking at some pictures of the festival called Holi where they positively seem to be OD’ing on color:
You can see it in the art, too:
titanwong31 - I like the original colors best, mostly because the others look like digital false-color treatments, not like natural colors organically integrated into the scene. You might play with saturation, too, and desaturate the brightest things like the lightbulb itself so it goes above yellow into white. Also, the edge of the light from the lightbulb seems too abrupt. It’s not that the shadow needs to be softer, it’s just that you want another glow that is dim and warm and goes beyond the edge of where the light itself ends now.
thebogdan - Welcome! See if you can find out why the lightbulb and shade are getting that kind of polygon shading. For the light from the window, see if you can get more diffuse skylight in the area near the window and tone down the fog effect. For the light from the bulb, try to make the bulb itself and the lampshade the brightest, and soften the shadows on the walls.
izrut - Hi! It looks like you have some light that isn’t shadowing or occluded in that scene, areas like the floor stay bright even going into the back corners. Keep going with the lighting and the surfaces.
