I am so close folks...so very, very close I can taste it. Here's a rendered frame from a lighting test I was doing tonight. This whole project has been a huge learning curve and tonight was big fun... adding the blinks and little flourishes and creating textures (please note the back wall!) and lighting! Our lighter here at work is amaaazing and he really helped me in creating the look I wanted. I wanted it to feel like stage lighting so we had a lot of fun trying different things...changing the intensity on the spots... playing with various colors with the ambient lighing and once we can get the shadows to go (you'll note the shadows didn't render in this frame) I think it will look amazing.
current mood: Tired but PROUD!
