So it has come to week 2! I am flying off in two days so I won't be able to edit this or post any update about week 3.
Anyway, the current assignment is really interesting despite being tedious. Character lighting, basically portrait lighting, with the inclusion of background lighting - you have to match the lights with your background image.
As challenging as it sounds, I had fun! Eyes lighting is still very tricky for me, so I am just gonna keep trying.

I haven't been updating this blog since eons ago but anyway~
Starting a new course this month, my favourite subject - LIGHTING! Learning the basics all over again, hope I can become better at it once I get the hang of it again. Week 1 started out with a really interesting assignment.
You can't change the position or texture of the objects in the scene but you can frame it and light it however you want. Sounds just about right, it seems close enough to a real production workflow.
The above image is just a snippet of mine. Gotta brighten it here and there, adjust the shadows and darker areas. Colors too! *pulls hair while waiting for renders for the 10000000000th time*
Fun awaits. :D

The most fun assignment by far.
By avoiding color picking, we tried to match the colors from our references. It is hard, definitely, but absolutely fun!
Got a little too carried away with the details which made the whole render too messy. Need to break down into even simpler shapes. More studies to be done.
