Inspired by the great work from Samas on his recent thread. I decided to download the Skyline model in OBJ format and play around with materials and lighting for a change. (Since trying animate bipedal rigs was driving me insane.)
Here are two test renders so far.
I am utterly useless at light setups and I always have problems with shadows never coming out “right”.
I much prefer to play with materials knowing the lights are “perfect” but it never seems to work out. I either end up with what I think is good lighting or good materials, never both. :no:
There’s still work to be done on the light clusters and tyres, but I’m not sure I’ve the energy to go any further with it.
