Hi, I am Qasim, a CG artist. I am working as a CG generalist, contributing my skills to an adventure game, and also as lighting lead for a cartoon series.

This is the making of my lovely image, The Garage. I started work on the scene back in 2009 and my main goal was to improve my skills in lighting, shading, rendering and compositing. The car model was purchased for an official project, which went very well and meant I got some time to experiment with the Audi R8. I love the design and look of the R8 and that is why I took a lot of time over this model. It started as a test and got some good reviews from my friends and colleagues. The image was initially done with the contribution of some of my colleagues (we distributed the scene due to a heavy work load of live projects) in the areas like modeling and texturing, whenever anyone had a bit of free time during the live projects. The car model was well detailed, but we did lots of tweaks for the high res imagery.

At that time, I finalized the image and stopped working on it. I am now taking you through the very initial phase of development. Fig.01 - 04 show the initial tests of the scene that I wanted to produce.

Excellent work. Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial. I see you have a very big lighting setup, are all those lights really necessary?
