They are great lighting for indoor lights in IRay you can set them just about anywhere and they give you a photoreal render every time. If you would like a link to the sales page let me know.
Once you've gone stylus, you'll never go back to that rodent.View attachment 48087 I am getting a little more comfortable with using a stylus instead of the mouse.
I made a lot of mistakes, and I really need to dig into some tutorials on coloring, shading, and getting things to look like shiny metal with the tools I have. But I am happy so far with the Wacom tablet.
Thanks. I was going off a reference image, and I know where the light and shadows should go. What I need to learn is how to use the tools I have to reproduce those effects.Metal is all about the shading/highlights Rokket (kinda like what you did with the legs, you highlighted the middle but forgot to put some shadows at the edges). Look at metal objects and see how all the different metals react to light (for example, brushed steel looks totally different to polished steel as the light reflects differently).
Also that's where Daz and Poser come in handy, do a render with the lighting you want, then you can see where highlights/shadows fall (Iray and Superfly are great if you want realistic shadows)
