i’ve been following the tutorial at http://download.blender.org/documentation/html/x1040.html (great tutorial by the way), and have gotten as far as creating the spotlight and hemi for the gingerbread man. In the tutorial, the image (http://download.blender.org/documentation/html/gfx/chapter_quickstart/Quick29.png) shows the shadow displayed pretty much in proportion to the gingerbread man.
I followed the exact instructions, but I get a slightly different image:
The gingerman looks much more “plastic” in the tutorial (more light around the edges) The shadow is different - towards the feet the shadow is lighter and thinner, but further up the shadow is darker and much larger.
You can have a look at my render at http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v143/blufire/gingerbread.jpg.
What do I need to do to make my render look like the one in the tutorial?
