I spent 4 hours on this last night, and 2 hours this morning adjusting the lighting. The purpose for this is to learn some of the options and best settings to use with materials and lighting. A break from game related stuff, just for fun. It's also practice using features like Global Illumination and Final Gathering, and light setup methods. Any tips would be helpful.
I hope to post more of these, and try some new ideas that are more artistic for illustrations.
For those who have visited my site in the past, I have a new layout up.
No new content yet. Hopefully I can spend less time posting in non-game related threads here, and more time creating art...like I should be.
In other news, I've just been hired by a local indie game studio as a character artist. I'm on the way to my first meeting with them as soon as I post this. I'd like to thank all of you here at Polycount for helping me get this far. This is where I started, and I hope to continue pushing forward with more effort. Thanks for not banning me, and sorry for the trouble I've caused in pointless debate threads.
