3 lights on a human hands still dark

so I dont get it…stupid lights. followed the 3 light set up, and it mostly looks ok. Except the top of the hands dark shadows…

There is nothing there, to shadow them. Even when I move the hemis, no spec to the side above them, they are still in shadow.

So blender is really special and just does this for you, right?

Ok so I add a spot to one hand. It lit up her wrist, arm and hip, and not her hand.

I have to ask, what the crap is up with that?


Um. Have you tried recalcing the normals on that (shift/ctrl-shift N)?

LOL, yep, you know what it was? I had 3 stray verts, and for some reason, it made them all darker. When I deleted them, it was just fine.

I dont think I have ever had that happen before. Very strange… OOOOOOOooooooOOOOOoooooooooo
