After an embarrassingly long time without pushing my skills to their limits, I decided it was time for a serious still render. It’s mostly a combination of unfinished projects I had lying on my hard drive (I had a lot to pick from…), with some new things added to tie it all together.
I actually made it decently far this time (without ever getting bored!!) before getting artist’s block, so I figured I would put it up here and see if I can keep the momentum going.
A few issues I’m aware of:
- The lighting could be better. I like the lighting on Stick Man, but on the rest of the scene (esp. the chess pieces and pillars), it seems a little off to me, but I can’t figure out why.
- The background needs work. I’m trying to get the pillars to lead the eye into the scene, but somehow it’s not really working for me.
That’s all I can think of at the moment, but I’m sure there’s tons of things I have missed.
