Here’s an example of what I mentioned with the pointlights for glow…
That last example of yours looks great… very well done on the eye shimer effect!
Wow, that’s a fantastic render chris! Love the cyclops glowing eye I certainly see what you were talking about, very effective I might add!
Yeah, I’m still playing with it atm, It’s eventually became more of a multi specular list of parameters. Like in the real world, It’s actually rather difficult to light accurately within the full scene… I tried out a Riddick character using similar approach, but the anatomy of Riddicks eye (I’ve found) is somewhat different to the pupil of a cat like eye. But of course, particularly the first couple of Idea’s really re-enforce the Multi Specular material in a full set of lighting… Ambiance Idea definitely helps when necessary!
With anyone intending to attempt Riddick eye style, Kendalls Idea for the use on the Pupil and the Iris is definitely the way to go!
But as far as what I’m going for, (The Cats eye) I’m getting close I think. When I’m done tweaking, I’ll post my findings in a tutorial for everyone to use
