Ok, i dont have the image on hand, but this is off my soap bar thing for anyone that remembers.
I have a pinkish Soap Bar, i am trying to achieve a similar effect to the whole FightClub feel… for anyone who has seen that movie. For those who havent, its a bar of soap with the look of carved out (or more bumped out) letters that are part of the soap bar.
Now through the help of the blender community, i got the letters to look as part of the soap. Everyone suggested various ways and finally i was pointed to the most simple, which i ended up using. Which was to simply combine the two.
Now i modified that a bit to not mess up my mesh, and simple gave the letters and the soap the same material.
Now aside from problems with the soap and bubbles themselves, the letters are insanely hard to see!
I toyed a ton with lighting but i cannot get it to look right, the shadows help, but none the less the letters look so exactly the same as the soap, the letters do not stand out at all. So anywhere they are not overlyshined apon by light, or given big shadows, its an invisible part with no depth.
Any ideas on what i could do? I want the letters to look like they are made of the same soap as the bar, so i dont think i can change the color of the letters… but none the less they match too well. And i tried various ways of lighting, just trying to figure it out, and the best i came up with was putting some lights on the same layer as the text and making them only shine on the text… but then it looks like the soap is being shined heavily on by lights, and the bar isnt… which is weird. And ofcourse, if i do the same thing with the bar included, the text is again, basically invisible.
Thanks to any comments!
