firstly I want to say that I am a beginner with Blender. I just dived in ^^.
I know that are not good requirements for my intention, so I hope you can help me
a little bit.
The thing I am fascinated of is a snapshot from the Assassin’s Creed 2 E3 trailer (you can see it in the attachments).
The great thing of that image is, that there is a bright sun and a dark city. The sun breaks through the dark clouds and because of that just lights up some parts of the city roofs while the other ones remain dark. This gives a nice contrast and in my opinion an epic feeling
So, my questions are:
First, how can I make such a beautiful cloudy sky with this nice lucid and dark contrasts?
And second, how can I make a rising sun that doesn’t brightens the whole scene, but only parts of it?
