Lighting Challenge #26: (WIP) Matinee


Hi All

An update to my first Entry


Hi All ,
This is the 2-nd stage render.


This is the basic look and feel of the Matinee (WIP), c & c are most welcome.


this is wht its gonna b like…guys plz give ur suggestions…thnks :slight_smile:


averi the shadows are too dark, no volume can be read there… And the light beam looks like a bright wall, for the first sight I misunderstood that it’s a light, the confusion is on the camera angle… the beam folows the same direction as the wall perspective… I don’t know if this explanation is clear enough:shrug: Maybe if we could see the corner between wall and floor, it will be better…
And adding a little subtle shining dust particles inside the light beam will improve image, I guess…



The following is my first render draft, but I feel the overall color is a little bit monotone, and I want to enrich the saturate a little bit. Also the chair and curtain’s shading looks not right, does anyone know how to create a shading for curtain kind of stuff? Thank you for the feedback.


thnkx :slight_smile: i’ll work on it, though i’m not sure how much further i can improve it since m not tht great at maya. :hmm: thanks a lot again


I wish that I could inverst more time in this project, but I was too busy. It´s just the clue of my idea.


Personally I don’t mind the muted monotone effect. Gives a bit of an older feel to it, like an early 1900s opera house.




Good job. Just a suggestion. There seems to be some excessive color bleeding from the boy’s clothes onto the wall. Keep up the good work!!


run out of time…this is my final render. I felt the overall composition was a little bit boring, so I painted a character on the stage.


Just a reminder to everyone that this challenge will be ending on this Sunday, April 3rd. Make sure to post your final images by replying to the final image thread here:
