“Every light has its own personality” …and in the words of Jules: “Personality goes a long way”.
When lighting in CG, try to reference real world lights to capture their characteristics. This should help give your work more charm and avoid the ‘CG’ look.
Thanks to Clear Angle Studios for the camera kit and to Camberwell Studios for the lights.
