Render and Composition

To illuminate my scene, I used an image in the hdr option Image Basing Lighting in mental ray, and added a blue color to contrast with the orange light of the collar.

For lighting of the collar I used a point light with Linear Decay Rate (Fig.12).

I did the render in three simple steps: diffuse illumination, then the light of the collar, and finally occlusion (Fig.13).

With these steps completed, I assembled them in layers in Photoshop and did some color corrections. After some adjustments I then finished off the model (Fig.14 - 16).

For the video I used the same steps and I did the composition in After Effects - you can see the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T55shVKjl38&feature=player_embedded

I hope you enjoyed this Making Of - until next time!
