Christmas Lights WIP

Just doing some experimentation… I’m trying to learn how to do lighting better. I wanted lights that have the appearance of emitting light. I first tried hollow glassy looking bulbs with a light source inside of them. I didn’t like the way that looked at all. I ended up trying a more plasticy look with a high emit setting. Then I placed colored spots behind them to give the illusion of emitting colored light.

I’m still pretty new at this… Comments and suggestions are appreciated.
