This week's assignment had us practicing using basic lighting techniques to give the illusion of depth.
We were told to choose an object, perhaps a decoration above our desk, and illuminate it with a basic three-point lighting setup. For an added challenge, we were told we could incorporate a colored light and see how we could implement it into the digital painting.
I chose to use a sculpture created by my friend, Boo, and used a violet light in my setup. Here is the original picture.
For the final result shown below, I chose to go with more of a photo-realistic style and am pleased with how it turned out. I really enjoyed working on this piece and spent about 7 hours on it.
