Just a test render of my animation I'm working on. Still messing with lighting and junk. Hoping to submit it for Robot Day...whenever that is

Maya, Mudbox, Mental Ray, Headus


Lighting is definitely this image's weak point. First, it's too dark, and second, there are specular reflections with no apparent light source.

Meanwhile, I would give you more constructive criticism, except I can't see anything well enough to judge it. Sorry to be blunt, but the lighting is so poor that I cannot pick out what looks right and what looks wrong, because it *all* kind of looks wrong. It certainly has potential, particularly that robot, and I would LOVE to see & critique what you've done! Good luck!

thanks for the response. yeah i was trying some stuff with the lighting and was realllllly unsuccessful. i haven't slept in a few days. so yeah, just blegh lighting, redoing it all. the scene is supposed to be on the darker side in the context of the animation. i'm not sure what you mean by the spec reflections? the bars of light on the wall/couch are from a window with the blinds down, which i'm currently redoing as a gobo to be more consistent. the assignment is due in a week so i have time to unfuck the lights. maybe i'll post a render of the robot by himself. i wish NG had a way to post turntables... will ask Tom...
