Thank you very much for your posted images and feedback.
Seeing your rendered results makes me proud.
I know the lighting setup is quite simple but it works and anything that is easy and effective has got to be a good thing
Thank you for your criticism as well, I will learn more from that anything else, any more criticism are quite welcomed.
The fine print was a hurdle, hence the two difference sized PDF in an attempt to combat that.
Trying not to clutter the page and offer a screen shot was tough….but I do have some thoughts on fixing that for the
“possible” next one.
I have even thought of a possible video tutorial…not sure on that one though.
Thanks again for your feedback.
My opinion, based on my first efforts: the tutorial provides easy-to-follow instructions on putting together a light setup that delivers excellent results, more or less on par with some of the best professionally-made light presets I’ve used. It’s very satisfying to be able to assemble the lights on my own, and I look forward to tinkering with the various settings in order to make lighting appropriate for a variety of different scenes. I did know a lot of the things covered in the tutorial pretty well already, but the new things I learned seem very helpful and important, and well worth the price, given the resulting renders. Overall I’m very satisfied with this tutorial.
One criticism is that some of the “fine print” (for instance, the render settings in step 2) can be very difficult to read.
I hope we’ll see a follow-up to this! Either another lighting tut, or something focusing on skin materials settings, perhaps?
