After, what I consider, at least, to be a successful experiment, I offer you this.
Are the Glares in compositing or Post Production? Looks Amazing by the way…
Sorry I’m late replying - I didn’t see your reply. The glares are all blender compositing. Usually I’ll take a scene to GIMP, but this time I tested with Blender’s own tools. My experiments with the shader helped. My first goes were way to heavy with the comp, so toned right down for this.
And thank you
EDIT: I made a modified version, which helped fix up the wings.
