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 :)

Wow. Light through the tea glass, thicker glass of the potion bottle and grape leaves is just stunning, also so so difficult to do, my brain would bend too! It all looks so great. I really get the sense of the person the table belongs to as well.

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.
