I’m trying to replicate an image of the Apple Pencil (I assume it’s computer generated).
I’m happy with my Pencil model, the issue I’m having is how to achieve the lighting like the reference image. I’m using two area lights to replicate the reflections you can see on the metallic part of the Pencil, but I can’t achieve the contrast they have between the light and in shadow sides of the Pencil; my image is very uniform.
On the left is the image I am trying to diplicate, on the right is my current render result.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I still have a lot to learn, especially when it comes to lighting, but I think I’m close!
