Hi!

I was hoping someone here could help me out. I am working on a render, it’s in a cave with water. I would like to have the water glow kind of like in this picture. http://static.zerochan.net/Shuriken.Rev.full.323373.jpg I’m not sure what is the best way to do this though. Any advice would be most appreciated.

I should also note that I am still using Daz 2.3 at the moment.

Thank you in advance.

Sometimes the solution is so simple that you don’t even consider them. I didn’t put the spot lights under the water but right above the water and boosted intensity and spread and then added anther spot light under the water showing upwards to get a glow on the character’s face. This is what I got so far. Though it is far from done yet. Thank you for your help.
