Homework by JessiBeans Homework by JessiBeans
I've been taking Sam Nielson's advanced lighting class, which is truly excellent ( [link] ), and this is one of my assignments. I was given a simple line drawing of the blue sphere, the glass cup and the grapes on a checkered plane, and then I had to paint it with a strong light source in order to understand the translucent properties of light (caustics, reflection and refraction, and sub-surface scattering). I tried to turn my composition into a table in a witch's cottage.

Pretty pleased with how this game out, but man did it bend my brain.
On to the next :)

Painting subsurface scattering....yugh! Rendering it is boggling enough.
Heh, that potion looks like a restore magica potion from skyrim.

It's amazing how something so simple, like a table with a few things, really isn't simple at all. I love the effort and detail you've put into this, the lighting must have been a killer. I'd love to take some class in lighting and learn it properly one day.
