View Full Version : Simple can be best

After all the times I've spent hours on setting up a scene and lighting, and still not being happy with it, here's one time when I set the scene and lighting up in literally 30 seconds, and it worked out perfectly)
I didn't even move the camera, and the lighting is just one area light with a falloff.
Hats off to the lightwave renderer I suppose, I didn't do anything)

Nice ... much of my best work either comes together very quickly (like yours) or is the result of some accidental keystroke or mouse-drag that triggers an unexpectedly cool result!

I think it's a nice image as well. Can I offer a couple of friendly crits? I think part of his hood is disappearing under his shoulder, though its hard to tell at this resolution, and I'd like to see a column or something nearby, with others barely visible in the darkness, that would give a sense of the vast room that he appears to be standing in...

Very nice render. You're right, sometimes the best renders are the most simple.

Very nice model as well....

Nice work.

The mood reminds me of some of the old 'masters' paintings - Rembrant and the such. Pretty cool.

cool model...we all know lighting can be a challenge...have you considered lighting the floor & your subject seperately? or exclude your lights to light only the floor & subject seperately?

Yes, I do composites sometimes, and export layers to photoshop for adjustment, but this just shows how darn simple a good render can be. (in lightwave at least)

Very nice, oDDity! Can I assume this is for TDM? Can't wait to see more of your work. :thumbsup:

Yup, it's one of the mage faction.
There are more TDM characters on my site.
