I thought I’d ask for help here because I haven’t had any luck yet searching around and I’m not sure exactly what I should be looking for either.
I’ve been modeling a human face/head and I’m having an issue, most noticeably in the nostrils. It looks like any lights shining from above the head will illuminate the upward facing faces inside the nostril, causing them to glow very brightly even when the rest of the surrounding area is dark. This doesn’t look good at all. I’m not sure what the best solution would be to fix this. In real life the light would never make it into the nostrils because the rest of the head would block it, but I guess the lights in blender don’t assume this logic.
What is the best way to stop the nostrils from glowing? Preferably they would get darker the deeper they go into the head. Please let me know if I should attach any pictures or a .blend.
