Here is the rough basics of the art gallery idea. The lighting is just a 3x3 Grid Replicator of spots, plus one other spot focused on V4.
Full indirect lighting is on, so the walls have a chocolate hue even though they are actually still the default grey. I am finding it a challenge to control the IDL this way, but I think having light bouncing around will be necessary.
I need to model actual light sources for the ceiling and create some hanging art for the walls. I also thought about trying to create some brass posts with that red, crushed velvet “rope” you sometimes see in banks and such to form queues…that might be a challenge in itself.
Included a close-up to show off the “crushed sapphire” texture…which also shows off some needed work with the pose.
