In this community workshop, we’re specifically looking at dark, grungy, night time, low lit scenes. How do you effectively light your characters and set and maintain the look of low level lighting? We invite you to bring along and share your artwork where you’ve created night time scenes that you are particularly proud of.

Let’s share tips, resources and artwork to get better quality low level lighting scenes.

Think about…

  • Indoor/Outdoor night scenes
  • Using supplemental lights (Point, spot, and mesh)
  • The usefulness of Ghostlights (Product)
  • Postwork techniques to enhance a dim scene
  • Best Practices?
  • Using Emissives
  • Using HDRI
  • How to achieve the “Movie/TV night time look”
  • Horror scenes
  • Deep underwater scenes
  • Cave scenes

Get prepared for this webinar:-

  • Look in your render library for your top three renders that show a low level lit scene.
  • What tips can you share from the build of these three scenes?
  • Which lighting resources or night time sets would you recommend to other artists?
