Just playing around with an old Stonemason set
I needed a new desktop background, lol.
*Added some trees and lowered the resolution for the sake of render time.
For some reason this made me think of the Madonna lyrics:
“Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it
Vogue, vogue, vogue, vogue”
Ha ha, that’s Aiko for you; it’s what she does, lol
Koukotsu, how did you do the lighting in that? It’s very nice.
It’s very simple actually, just a sunlight+realistic sky, 45% white ambient light, and “ambient occlusion only” ticked in the global illumination settings with an occlusion radius of 18inches. (I almost always use the “small” scene scale)
Then, I used Photoshop to stack the image in 2 layers, blurred the top layer around 8.5%, changed it’s blend mode from the layer style options to “screen” and dropped the opacity of that blurred layer to 50%. It’s like adding a cheesy little bloom layer, lol.
I did increase the brightness quite a bit for both layers to give it a more sunny look.
