Here's another lighting scheme for my mad scientist's laboratory. More work in progress images over at my blog josecua.blogspot.com. Thanks for lookin
I see you still like to go to my basemnt for inspiration.
I hope this gets to you, but I really love this concept so I began modelling it and am going to put the scene together in Unreal 4. I'm not making any profit, it's just for a portfolio piece. I will obviously give you full credit.
Nice to see your art progress slightly far now,
Would you mind if I use this for a cover of a story I'm making? I would credit you fully of course.
Love the ambiance. Great work !
nice art josemarichan. very huge improvement. keep up the good work!
Thanks I started with flat colors, then have 2 duplicates of the flattened image. I started with a cool colored darkened layer (levels, and color balance). I then created a lightening layer, (levels, and color balance). Made that unvisible (with a mask) and then slowly unmasked areas that I wanted lit. I repeated this 3 times for the different colored lights (greenish hues from the capsule, warms from the window, cool bounce light from inside. Its a common matte painting technique but I like to use it for alot of my stuff. Hope this helps
amazing look! I also looked over your blog, so you started with the material colors and then.. is that an overlay layer you use for creating the shadows and light of the environment?
